Who is Skaar in She Hulk and Skaar’s Marvel Comics history- Explained

This article includes spoilers for the ninth episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, titled “Whose Show Is This?”

Wow, that was quite the conclusion, wasn’t it? She-Hulk: Attorney at Law drew together every thread woven over its first season in a finale that was both anticipated and absolutely unpredictable, including that Disney+ fourth-wall-breaking moment for the ages. While most of the season’s She-Hulk standouts returned, including Blonsky, Titania, Daredevil, and even Wong (though we missed Madisynn! ), there was one significant event that everyone is talking about: Bruce Banner’s return from his vacation on Sakaar and the revelation that he had a son named Skaar.

Whoa! Bruce is now the third of the original Avengers to become a parent, joining Thor (who adopted Gorr the God Butcher’s daughter, Love, at the conclusion of Thor: Love & Thunder) and Tony (who has a young daughter named Morgan), as well as Clint Barton and Scott Lang, who has been “parenting” for some time.

She-Hulk: Marvel Studios Insists on This One Thing Before Daredevil Can Make His Comeback

We’ll discuss everything that transpired in the final episode of She-Hulk—K.E.V.I.N? That X-Men reference? Daredevil? — ad nauseam, have no fear. But for the time being, let’s focus on one thing: Has the Hulk a son? The Hulk is a father. Here is everything we know about Skaar, including his origin, his Marvel Comics background, and what his inclusion in She-Hulk could imply for the future of the MCU.


Who is Skaar in She-Hulk?

Skaar is Bruce Banner’s son, as revealed at the end of the episode at the Walters/Banner family barbecue. You may recall that the automobile accident that led to Jen getting her She-Hulk powers was caused by a Sakaaran spaceship trying to send Bruce a message; by Episode 2 of the She-Hulk: Attorney at Law season, Bruce was on his way to Sakaar to check out what was going on.

Well, Bruce returns by the conclusion of the season. And things have been figured out; in “Whose Show Is This?” he discusses his son with the audience. Skaar doesn’t speak when he’s introduced, but he’s wearing comparable fighting gear to what Bruce wore in Thor: Ragnarok when he was under The Grandmaster’s (Jeff Goldblum) control. Nobody can predict the future at this point.


Who is Skaar’s mother?

As previously stated, Bruce was stranded on Sakaar in The Incredible Hulk form for two years, between the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron (when he flew away in a Quinjet) and Thor: Ragnarok (when he encountered Thor in The Grandmaster’s arena of combat).

Who is Skaar's mother?

Time travels differently in Sakaar and on different planets, which explains why Skaar appears to be significantly older than a few years. Fair enough, you may be wondering who Skaar’s mother is. In the renowned “Planet Hulk” and “World War Hulk” comic arcs, Hulk had an on-again, off-again relationship with Caiera, a Shadow Person on Sakaar who possesses “The Old Power,” which grants her superpowers. She is first associated with the story’s antagonist, the Red King, until betraying him, unites with the Hulk (who becomes Green King) and marries him.

She dies in an explosion that destroys most of Sakaar, but she gives birth posthumously to two sons, Skaar and Hiro-Kala, using her otherworldly talents in a cocoon. It is unknown if we will meet the second one in the MCU very soon.


What is Skaar’s Marvel Comics history?

Skaar was created between 2006 and 2007 by writer Greg Pak and artist John Romita Jr. for the renowned “Planet Hulk” Marvel Comics storyline. Skaar made his debut in What If? Planet Hulk #1.

What is Skaar's Marvel Comics history?

World War Hulk #5 was his first canonical appearance; What If? comics, like the Marvel Cinematic Universe series of the same name, exist outside the main timeline. He has also had his own spin-off arcs and series, like as “Son of Hulk” and “Planet Skaar.”

In other words, he is a relatively new figure within the Marvel universe. “Planet Hulk” and “World War Hulk” are two of Marvel’s finest storylines, therefore we won’t reveal too much about them. But once Skaar is born (in a cocoon after his mother’s death), he ages quickly, and once he’s fully grown, he has one sole objective: to get to Earth and kill his father, The Incredible Hulk.

The MCU appears to have already altered the situation. But we shall see what transpires.


What does the arrival of Skaar indicate for the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Since 2008’s The Incredible Hulk, Marvel fans have awaited a new solo Hulk adventure for almost a decade (which, you may recall, starred Edward Norton as Bruce Banner and not Mark Ruffalo). However, complex rights concerns with Universal appear to have thwarted these objectives.

However, Hulk’s trip to Sakaar earlier in the series and the introduction of his son Skaar at the conclusion of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law indicate that a World War Hulk plot may finally be on the horizon, possibly even on the big screen.

Hulk’s entire return to Sakaar and discovery occurred off-screen, which might provide for some interesting flashbacks in the upcoming film. Director Kat Coiro performed an excellent job directing Ruffalo in She-Hulk; perhaps she would be willing to oversee the anticipated big film.

Wil Deusner, age 19, makes his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut as Skaar in the conclusion of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. First, he utilizes the same motion capture/CGI technique that Tatiana Maslany (as She-Hulk), Mark Ruffalo (as The Hulk), and Tim Roth (as The Abomination) do.
