Episode 2 of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law allowed us to see Jen Walters accepting the parole case of Emil Blonsky, aka the Abomination, because she found out that he had become a changed man and because Bruce Banner told her that they had already buried the hatchet a long time ago. Of course, the biggest twist was when it was shown that Blonsky broke out of prison to fight against Wong in an underground fight club during the events of Shang-Chi because the sorcerer broke him out. So, why did Wong break the Abomination out of prison?
Wong broke the Abomination out of prison because he was looking for a strong opponent that he could fight so that he could improve his skills as the Sorcerer Supreme. Blonsky, in his statement, was forced out of prison against his will but still decided to return there after fighting Wong.
This is the third episode in a row that a cameo appearance from a past MCU character has graced She-Hulk, as Wong was actually willing to cooperate with Jen Walters regarding the Abomination’s case. Of course, someone like Wong would think that he is well beyond the reach of the law because he’s never lived in a normal society. That said, let’s look at why Wong broke the Abomination out of prison in She-Hulk.
Why Did Wong Break The Abomination Out Of Prison?
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law has done a great job at delivering the legal comedy theme that is quite new to the MCU, considering that this has never been done before and that no live-action MCU series has ever been labeled a comedy show. That said, one of the things that make it a great comedy series is the fact that it is able to make use of former MCU characters and make them part of the entire storyline in a matter that is quite hilarious but isn’t too far from their own personalities.
In episode 2, we did see the return of Emil Blonsky, who we all saw as the Abomination back in the 2008 Hulk movie. Jen Walters, who was still adjusting to her new identity as the She-Hulk, was given a case by her new job over at the Superhuman Law Division of GLK&H to supervise the parole of Emil Blonsky, who had been in prison ever since the end of his fight against the Hulk.
After Jen took time to think about her decision to represent Blonsky and after consulting with her cousin, Bruce Banner, she decided to take the case. But just after telling her boss that she was going to take this case, she ended up learning that Blonsky was filmed as the Abomination, fighting in an underground fight club.
Of course, this scene came from Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, as we saw a cameo appearance by Wong and the Abomination in a fight in the Golden Daggers Club in Macau. The fight ended in Wong’s favor, but we did see him and Blonsky being chummy with one another after the fight, as they even exited the fight club using the same portal.
At that point, we didn’t know the relationship between the two characters and why someone like Wong, who is usually a stickler for rules, would want to break Abomination out of prison. But that became clear in episode 3 of She-Hulk when Jen Walters returned to Emil Blonsky’s secured prison facility and asked him about what happened in that underground fight club. So, with that said, why did Wong break the Abomination out of prison?
When Jen asked Blonsky what happened when he fought in the fight club as the Abomination, that was when he told her that he was there because he was forced to do so by, in his words, “a Sorcerer Supreme of the mystic arts.” Of course, the only person we could think of that goes with that title is Wong, who was revealed during the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home as the Sorcerer Supreme instead of Doctor Strange.
That was when Jen told her assistant to look for this Sorcerer Supreme and find a way to contact him so that she could ask her about what happened regarding Blonsky and why he had to pull him out of prison. Wong, of course, used his sling ring to portal his way to the GLK&H office, where he and Jen discussed matters related to the Abomination.
Wong admitted to Jen that yes, it was indeed him who broke the Abomination out of prison against his will. When Jen asked him why he did that, Wong simply said that he wanted to fight a strong opponent like the Abomination because it was part of his training as the Sorcerer Supreme. And as we’ve seen in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, he needed to train harder than ever if he wanted to protect the world from threats.
How Did Wong Break The Abomination Out Of Prison?
As we saw during the events of episode 2 of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, the prison facility housing Emil Blonsky was incredibly secure. The security guard even told Jen Walters the security protocol that she needed to follow to make sure that she was safe from the Abomination. Nevertheless, Wong was still able to break him out of prison. So, how did Wong break Blonsky out of that secure cell?
Well, for starters, Wong and the masters of the mystic arts are capable of creating portals using their sling ring. We did see in Avengers: Endgame that the portals that they could create allow them to travel from where they are to any part of the universe, as seen from when Doctor Strange created a portal all the way from the ruins of the planet Titan back to return to Earth.
So, in that case, Wong simply used his sling ring to create a portal that allowed him to enter Blonsky’s cell undetected and then leave with him without the guards ever noticing that he had actually left the facility. Of course, Wong also used the same method to return the Abomination back to his cell.
Then again, despite the fact that he used magic to bust Emil Blonsky out of prison, Wong isn’t exactly innocent. That’s because US law prohibits anyone from aiding in the escape of a prisoner. In that regard, by admitting to the parole board that he did indeed break the Abominatio out of prison to fight him in an underground fight club, Wong also admitted that he broke the law.
Nevertheless, he was able to escape the premises using a portal before the authorities could get hold of him. In a way, this was one of the funniest parts of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law as Wong, who probably never lived in a normal society before because he’s spent his entire life Kamar-Taj, wasn’t aware that such laws exist. And that’s why even the Sorcerer Supreme is now a fugitive of justice in the MCU.
