She-Hulk episode 6 may have misled Daredevil fans but it confirmed Intelligencia’s existence in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a team of mastermind villains foreshadowed with the arrival of Jon Bass’s Todd in the Disney Plus series. But it seems MCU chief Kevin Feige laid the founding bricks for the menacing ensemble’s debut as early as in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
This week’s She-Hulk wasn’t big on easter eggs nor did it introduce Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock as the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen rather was all about Jen Walters. Even so, episode 6 also shows Mallory and Nikki at GLK&H dealing with a new client, Craig Hollis a.k.a Immortal. during which, the two come across a web page called Intelligencia. A dive into the rabbit hole and they soon realize it’s a toxic community filled with extremists with even death threats aimed at She-Hulk.
With Intellengica confirmed, MCU fans have had a fun dissent on social media discussing the potential outcome, especially since the secret organization seems to be after Jennifer’s Gamma-radiated DNA. But some eagle-eyed fans also noticed Black Panther villain Ulysses Klaw being referenced as a former member of the Intellengica.
Klaw’s debut in Avengers: Age of Ultron was first showcased via a case file that Steve Rogers and the rest come across. A closer look at the briefing and readers can notice his affiliation mentions him as an ex-Intellengica member.
YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, they mentioned Intelligencia back in age of ultron
(this movie continues to age like fine wine)

With She-Hulk laying the foundation for Intellengica it could also in turn set the stage for The Leader’s return, the villain played by Tim Blake Nelson confirmed for Captain America 4 at D23 Expo.
It’s possible that She-Hulk finale could introduce a few of the masterminds behind Intelligencia. In the comics, the supervillain team even consisted of MODOK, the big-bad set to debut in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. But so far, the group has been shrugged off as just another wannabe internet crybabies and with Marvel Studios reimagining Immortal for the MCU, its possible there could be something else in store as well.
She-Hulk episode 7 will air next Thursday on Disney Plus.
