The season finale of “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” was baller. Lots of cameos and Easter eggs but the best cameo was the introduction of Skaar Banner, Bruce Banner’s son.
This post contains spoilers for the finale of “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.”
Who is Skaar Banner?
During the season finale of “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law,” Bruce Banner drops by family BBQ at Jen’s parents’ house while Daredevil is visiting.
Bruce starts to explain that he has been on Sakaar and he’ll fill in those details, but he has someone for them to meet. “This is my son, Skaar.”
When Banner steps aside, Skaar steps out from behind him, played by Wil Deusner as a full CGI Hulk.
How does Skaar Banner fit into the MCU?
“She-Hulk: Attorney at Law’s” Season Finale (Episode 9) drops a cameo by Wil Deusner (Stargirl) as Skaar Banner, Hulk’s son.
This Skaar Banner cameo sets up an upcoming MCU Movie. While “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” is the Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk origin story, it’s also the first time a Hulk has had a lead role since The Incredible Hulk (2008).
She-Hulk has revisited many of the major plot points of The Incredible Hulk while also laying the foundation for new and future Hulk stories in the MCU, and hints at what those may be.
Earlier in the episode, when KEVIN tells Jen that Bruce’s return is necessary to reveal why he was in space but also to introduce a character, Jen says, “Save it for the movie.” This is not only a foreshadowing of what is to come in the episode but a hint to an actual movie, possibly the rumored World War Hulk movie. Skaar also would tie into a Young Avengers film.
Skaar Banner in the Comics
In the comics, Skaar Banner was the result of Hulk’s time spent on Sakaar during the “Planet Hulk” storyline after he was exiled from Earth by the Illuminati.
Skaar was created by Greg Pak and John Romita Jr. and first appeared in the 2008 crossover series “World War Hulk.”
Skaar’s mother, Caiera the Oldstrong, is an alien warrior Hulk married while stranded on Sakaar during the “Planet Hulk” storyline. After Caiera sacrificed herself to save her twin sons, Skaar and Hiro-Kala, a cocoon containing Skaar fell into the lake of fire. Skaar emerged from the cocoon, appearing the age of a human boy. A year later, he appeared to have grown into a young adult.
Skaar played a prominent role in several major comic events following his comic debut and later headlined a solo title.
At one point, Skaar was exiled to Earth and briefly joined the Dark Avengers and the Young Avengers. Mister Fantastic saw his arrival through a wormhole, as well as Hulk’s cousin She-Hulk, who could sense his location and gender.
Skaar entered into battle with his cousin, She-Hulk, and the Fantastic Four. One of the bombs Osborn sent collided with the area the Fantastic Four battled Skaar in and sent him miles away.
Skaar and Banner later fought Tyrannus when he and his Moloids invaded Manhattan. The duo later battled Dr. Doom.
