Hela, Thor's power-hungry sister, had already slashed out one of his eyes as part of Thor's final battle in Ragnarok. All seemed lost until Thor had a vision of his late father Odin, who aided him realize his true electrifying potential.
Odin proffered some wise words to Thor during this sequence: "Asgard is not a place, it is where our people stand."
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, Marvel's latest Disney+ series, has recently released its third episode, which has a decidedly irreverant sense of humor, with a lot of laughs coming fromits playful references to established MCU tropes, including a play on that veryThorline.
The LatestShe-HulkEpisode Returns to Ranagnarok
Dennis Bukowski, a former co-worker of Jen Walters, is suing a shapeshifting Asgardian elf who posed as rap artist Megan Thee Stallion in order to extort money from Bukowski.
The following exchange occurs during the discovery hearing between the two parties: The elf, Runa, her attorney, and the presiding judge:
Runas lawyer:Runa is the daughter of an Elfin ambassador on Asgard and now in New Asgard. As such, she has diplomatic immunity.
Judge: She may have diplomatic immunity in New Asgard, but we are not in New Asgard.
Runa: My goodness, please forgive me, but Asgard is not a place, it is a people. Therefore, I am sorry.
Judge:Inspirational remarks are not admissible in court.
This is a direct link to the dialogue from Thor: Ragnarokmentioned above. Here's the whole line from Odin in full:
Asgard is not a place. Never has been. (gestures around him) This could be Asgard. It is where our people stand. And right now, those people need you.
Heimdall said at the end of Ragnarok that Asgard is not a place, rather a people.
Asgard Truly is a People
Later MCU films demonstrate that Asgard is far more apparent in its people's hearts and minds than it is in its actual physical location. The Asgardians survived the Thanos' worldandan assault on their ship.
Thor acted as the Blip's drunken, unruly ruler, but Valkyrie later appointed her King.
Runas' argument in court may be valid, but unfortunately for her, the hearing was not conducted under the jurisdiction of New Asgard, rather was taking place in Los Angeles, California, as the judge is quick to point out. Also, dramatic monologues and speeches made by Thor are not admissible to begin with.
Attorney at Law, a Marvel StudiosShe-Hulk, will surely continue to laugh as it continues to develop its first season. The program launches new episodes every Thursday, exclusively on Disney+.
