Abomination is a Marvel villain who has appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) in the Hulk movie starring Edward Norton.

The character has long been an adversary of the Hulk, but with his reintroduction in She-Hulk, Abomination has had plenty of time to reflect and may be a reformed character.

Who is Abomination?

With abilities resembling those of the superhero Hulk, the villain Abomination appears in the Marvel comics and MCU. The character was developed by Marvel writers Stan Lee and Gil Kane, and it debuted in 1967 comic books

The origins of the Abomination character vary depending on the medium, but in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), the villain was made when Emil Blonsky, a former special operations commander, injected himself with Bruce Banner’s gamma-irradiated blood, transforming himself into a green monster the size of the Hulk.

The military created Abomination to combat the Hulk, who they believed to be a threat, but it soon became clear that Abomination was the bigger threat.

The Abomination battled the Hulk, but was finally vanquished and captured by S.H.I.E.L.D.

The Hulk was proposed as a replacement for Abomination when Tony Stark intervened to prevent Abomination from joining the Avengers project.

Where does Abomination fit in the MCU timeline?

The Incredible Hulk, the second movie in the MCU, chronicled the genesis of Abomination, his crusade against the Hulk, and his defeat.

Thirteen years after the character’s debut, Abomination made a brief appearance in the Phase Four Marvel movie Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

Abomination was briefly released from his supermax prison in the movie by the Sorcerer Supreme Wong so that he could take part in an underground fighting match at the Golden Daggers club. Abomination fought much more fiercely than the two had anticipated, but Wong was able to make him knock himself out.

Abomination didn’t appear as Emil Blonsky in Shang-Chi; he only made an appearance as a mutant monster.

What’s Abomination’s role in She-Hulk?

Blonsky becomes a client of Jennifer Walters’ in She-Hulk, the Hulk’s cousin, and she fights to get him released on parole.

In order to confirm that Bruce would be comfortable with her working with his former foe, Walters phones him.

Bruce assures Jennifer that he is a very different person from when he battled the Abomination, which is accurate in more ways than one as Banner/Hulk was played by Mark Ruffalo in every previous MCU appearance while Edward Norton played the character in the first movie.

Blonsky, the Abomination’s human guise in She-Hulk, seeks redemption for his earlier deeds. It’s unclear at this point if Abomination truly regrets his actions or whether he simply wants to leave jail so he may go on the rampage. Episode 2 ends with the clip of Abomination’s underground fight emerging.

As additional episodes of She-Hulk are broadcast on Disney Plus, it will become clear if Abomination is a hero, an anti-hero, or still a villain.
