Look, it’s no secret that fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been eagerly awaiting Daredevil’s appearance in She Hulk. With any chance for a new lawyer to step into the picture, people are starting to get excited that it could be a certain blind gentleman from Hell’s Kitchen. And when episode 5 of the show ended with a look at Daredevil’s yellow and red costume, the hype machine exploded. So we to get that fans were ready to see the latest version of that old favorite.
But no one can be That disappointed that I have to wait (at least) another week to see The Man Without Fear because while Episode 6 of She-Hulk didn’t have Matt Murdock, it’s did late Lulu, Jennifer Walters’ childhood friend, played by the inimitable Patti Harrison. AKA: Since she was played by Patti Harrison, automatically one of the funniest characters you’ll see in a Marvel property (until there with our old friend Madisynn).
Marrying Lulu – a high school friend who has become somewhat acquainted with Jen – was the catalyst for the episode’s A-plot, in which Jen takes a few days off from work (while Mallory and Nikki take the rest with Mr. Immortal on GLK&H) to sit back and convince everyone that she is having fun and doing it right.
Of course, we learn early on that Lulu and Jen aren’t exactly super close anymore, and this comes with the passive-aggressive territory. Lulu specifically asks Jen not to be in She-Hulk form, pairs her up with a groomsman who is actually a sick (but, honestly, cute) doggy, and lets her rival, Titania, hang out and end up causing trouble. Lulu also hilariously lets it slip, when asked if she’s “Team Edward or Team Jacob”, that she “dates both actors”. I think we have one more file to add to the Robert Pattinson rolodex!
But most of all, it’s a testament to how funny the artist is. Will Lulu, Jennifer Walters’s fake girlfriend from high school, become a mainstay of the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Probably not. But should she? We’ve seen Ant-Man have his friends and family played by fun actors like Michael Pena, Judy Greer, Bobby Cannavale, and David Dastmalchian (among others) for several movies. There’s room for She-Hulk to have some returning friends, right?
Patti Harrison is funny in everything and so is She-Hulk at.
Harrison has been a writer and actor on numerous highly regarded comedy projects for about five years now. She made early appearances in shows like wide city, search party, and High maintenance before getting recurring roles on shows like shrill, Made for love, and Tim Robinson’s hilarious and absurd Netflix sketch series I think you should leave. She also prescribes ITYSL, and has written for Big mouth and that of Jason Segel Shipments from elsewhere also. She has also made a mark on the big screen, appearing in a role in The Lost City alongside Sandra Bullock and leading together together with Ed Helms.
One of her funniest ITYSL skits, in which she plays a woman in a Driver’s Ed video, can be seen on Netflix’s YouTube for all to see.

Harrison, a trans woman, is one of the first trans actors in Marvel (actor Zach Barack appeared briefly as the character Zach Cooper in Spider-Man: Far from Home, and Nine Perfect Strangers star Zoe Terakes recently joined the cast of the upcoming iron heart), and has also been open about taking care of herself with regard to mental health. She spoke in The New Yorker about recently being diagnosed with ADHD “It took me a long time to get the ball rolling, but I had reached a point where I was so frustrated with my inability to just stay on track,” she said.
Also, shocking absolutely no one, Harrison’s social media presence is extremely funny. You can follow her at @party_harderson.
