She-Hulk: Attorney At Law candidly explores interesting ideas about the MCU in its post-credit scenes. Here are our thoughts after Episode 1.
She-Hulk Attorney At Law - Episode 1 Post Credits Explained

Marvel Studios' latest live-action series, She-Hulk: Attorney At Law, debuted on Disney+ following a one-day delay from its original 17th August 2022 launch date. The show has since been subjected to memes, jokes, and harsh criticism following its lackluster CGI but surprised audiences with its outstanding performances.

The show's first episode promised to get to the bottom of Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk in a more lighthearted tone by not skimping around with its mid and post-credit scenes. Accordingly, this article will highlight several significant plot points, characters, and details, so spoilers are ahead if you haven't watched the episode on Disney+ yet.

She-Hulk Post Credits Episode 1 – A Normal Amount of Rage

The first episode of She-Hulk did a splendid job of explaining who Jennifer Walters is and how she acquired her Hulk-like powers. Slightly deviating from her comic book origins, Jennifer and her cousin, Dr. Bruce Banner/Hulk, get into a car accident in which Bruce's gamma ray-infected blood ends up in her bloodstream.

Before the accident, the cousins briefly discussed Steve Rogers' journey from a skinny kid from Brooklyn to becoming the first Super Soldier to getting iced. The post-credit scene continues this discussion as a "drunken" Jennifer relents how devastated she is that Steve "died" without ever having sexual intercourse.

Bruce lifted the lid on this allure that Steve was a virgin before he retired as Captain America, a mantle that's now passed on to Sam Wilson/Falcon. He candidly revealed to Jennifer that Steve is not a virgin, having intercourse during the USO Tour of 1943.

Jennifer revealed not to be drunk as she coerced Bruce into exposing the truth by faking that she had one too many of Bruce's cocktails. By the end of this post-credit scene, Steve did a lot for his country, solidifying his status as still "America's Ass."

It's a sensual detail to have been included in the show, but a little unknown fact may have been on the minds of a few MCU fans. Especially since Cap had flirted with a few female admirers, including Peggy Carter during Captain America: The First Avenger and eventually her niece, Sharon Carter, in Captain America: Civil War.
