Avongers, assemble! The official Marvel’s Avengers Twitter account modified its display name, bio, and icon in a funny fashion on Thursday, in light of the just-released fifth episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. “Mean, Green, and Straight Poured Into These Jeans.”
Jennifer Walters’ narrative reached new heights in Episode 5 as she prepares to join the Avengers in projects such as Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. And, because of her genetic links to Bruce Banner and her own status as a Hulk, the Avengers are more linked to her own tale in her own solo series than practically any Phase 4 project to date.
Avengers is now Avongers: Earth’s Toughest Heroes
Spoilers for She-Hulk episode 5 ahead. Beware!
The episode featured Ginger Gonzaga’s Nikki Ramos and Josh Segarra’s Augustus “Pug” Pugliese as they looked for a superhero tailor for Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk (Tatiana Maslany). After discovering a boba cafe that they mistakenly believe is a front for the tailor, they learn that it is actually a front for bootleg Avengers items, including the “Avongers” and“Avingers,” featuring cartoon depictions of the original six Avengers that clearly do not match reality.
It's true. I am Nikki & Pug's drip broker 💧

In actuality, Truck Torrence, owner of 100% Soft, the creator of several of Marvel’s emoji characters, devised the Avongers’ attire and emblems. (Torrence is also Jessica Gao’s fiance, the chief writer of She-Hulk.) On Thursday, the 100% Soft account turned to Twitter to joke about being Pug and Nikki’s “drip broker” and to share a gif from the episode.
The Avengers’ official Marvel-affiliated Twitter account has been temporarily redesigned in a hilarious nod to the newest episode of She-Hulk. “Avongers” has been renamed, and the bio reads, “Earth’s Toughest Heroes.”
Furthermore, the profile picture now features knock-off variants of Captain America, Thor, and a purple take on the Hulk, as made by 100% Soft, a regular Marvel emoji artist.
What is Marvel up to with She-Hulk?
She-Hulk is receiving a lot of criticism and attention, and not all of it is justified. The show is being exaggerated, and MCU may be working behind the scenes to keep it in the spotlight, as they are notorious for doing. Never before has an MCU show received this much attention; something smells fishy.
Now, before Twitter users go crazy, this alteration to the Avengers’ profile is only temporary. Still, She-Hulk is a bizarre bit of connective tissue. Marvel Studios’ She-Hulk: Attorney at Law releases new episodes every Thursday, with Episode 6 premiering on Disney+ on September 22.
