Thursday marked the season one finale of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law — and it left the Marvel Cinematic Universe reeling. The live-action series frequently displays an irreverent and surprising approach to the lore of Jennifer Walters / She-Hulk (Tatiana Maslany), due in part to her ability to break the fourth wall.

The conclusion took it to another level, while also having a cameo that Marvel fans had to witness to believe.

If you don’t want to know what happens in Episode 9 of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, “Whose Show is This?”, then stop reading now!

As the show Jen is in becomes more and more ridiculous, with cameos and a fight between Jen and the Intelligencia, Jen expressed frustration at how all the storylines are concluding. She has the ability to break through the fourth wall into our world, which she does literal by climbing out of her show’s icon on Disney+. After confronting She-Hulk’s writers room while on Marvel lot, Kevin – who is apparently behind MCU’s decisions – is brought to her attention.

Jen makes it to Kevin — or, more accurately, K.E.V.I.N., a robot with a baseball cap-like outer shell — after the scuffle. K.E.V.I.N Jen’s decision to rewrite the conclusion of her tale shocks architect Howard Stark, whose real name is “Knowledge Enhanced Visual Interconnectivity Nexus”

After that, the two of them debate back and forth (and Jen points out some of the MCU’s most common gripes, including its predictability and lack of nudescenes, as well as daddy issues among its male characters). K.E.V.I.N Finally, she agrees to let Jen rewrite the narrative on her terms. After returning to the MCU, she handles the conflict in her own way.

Who is K.E.V.I.N.?

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is known for his work in the MCU, and K.E.V.I.N., a character in the show, is clearly meant to be a send-up of Feige himself. From the baseball caps that he wears almost exclusively to his knowledge of connectivity among various MCU properties, it’s clear that K.E.V.I.N. was inspired by Feige himself Although we’re not sure if this cameo was voiced by Feige or not, either way, it’s Easter egg popularity makes it one fo te biggest cameos or references to him yet..

She-Hulk has always been known to cross paths with the creators who are telling her story. In fact, it was quite common for her during the Sensational She-Hulk era. For example, she would often march into Marvel offices and tell John Byrne, who was writing and drawing the title at that time, what she thought about his work. Renee Witterstaetter also made several cameo appearances throughout this time period as well. By Sensational She-Hulk #50 though, Jen had finally found a new creative team after Byrne was taken off of the title – all thanks to Witterstaetter’s help.
