Warning: This video contains spoilers for She-Hulk: Season 1, Episode 9! If you haven’t already, be sure to check out IGN’s review of the Season 1 finale.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law has wrapped up its first season on Disney+. But the biggest reveal in the Season 1 finale involves not Jen Walters, but her cousin Bruce. Hulk is back from the planet Sakaar, and he’s brought his son with him. That’s right: Skaar has joined the MCU. And if you’re not familiar with this junior Hulk, now is the time to brush up on the tragic history of Skaar and the Planet Hulk saga.
The She-Hulk finale doesn’t reveal a lot about Skaar (played by Stargirl’s Wil Deusner) or his origin story. Heck, he doesn’t even have any dialogue in his quick scene at the Walters family picnic. But that scene does reveal the most important detail about Skaar. He’s the Hulk’s long-lost son, and he hails from the planet Sakaar.
In both the comics and the MCU, Hulk spends a good deal of time away from Earth and smashing his way to victory in Sakaar’s gladiator arena. In the comics, Hulk eventually falls in love with a fellow warrior named Caiera the Oldstrong and she becomes pregnant. Caiera is later killed in an act of sabotage, leading Hulk to embark on a bloody quest for revenge on Earth (more on that later). Little does he know that while Caiera is dead, their child survived the attack. That child quickly grows up in one of the most hellish environments in the Marvel Universe and becomes a warrior every bit as strong and fierce as his parents.
But that’s just the beginning of Skaar’s tragic story. Watch the full video about Hulk’s son for all the details and how he could play into future Marvel movies!
