When it comes to the grotesque villain whose rage people witnessed in 2008 in the Louis Leterrier-directed The Incredible Hulk, he was last seen making a special cameo appearance in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021). When the world saw the abominable villain again, critics and fans were taken aback by his rather affable, more calmed-down demeanor, a stark comparison to his 2008 counterpart. The fans were also curious about the character’s visual changes, but it was definitely updated to be more comic-accurate.

Now, that the villain is returning in She-Hulk, fans didn’t anticipate that the MCU is not quite done with their changes concerning Abomination. In a recent clip from She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, Abomination was seen speaking and now, the character has a voice that many fans claim “sounds like Korg.” Unlike his earlier ghastly, gruesome, and gravelly 2008 voice, the villain now talks exactly like a human would. Ultimate verdict? Fans are not amused. Here’s a tweet that provided comparisons between the two iterations of the villain:

The changes are noticeable and provide quite a contrast. Fans can only wonder what the villain has to contribute to the series since his menacing demeanor has clearly been changed. To say the criticism for the upcoming Disney+ series has increased tenfold would be an understatement.

The audience is not impressed or amused with this change. Many are even critiquing the show by saying it is getting the “Mickey Mouse treatment.” While many were intrigued by the comedic tone of the upcoming Disney+ series, the passionate audience is growing wary of how many other components of MCU and their iconic characters will be played up just for the laughs. Some are even wondering whether the inclusion of the nightmarish villain is just for comic relief. “Let’s hope he’s not a joke,” said a user on Twitter.
Here’s some more of what the fans had to say:
You’re now purposely setting up the MCU for slander for interactions, embarrassing 💀

Marvel really does not know how to villains. Instead of making Abomination a menacing villain, they want to give him a voice for comedy. How are we supposed to take him seriously?

Disney continuing Mickey Mouse treatments on dominate characters lmao

Everything from Hulk to Abomination was perfect in Edward Norton version. Sadly @MarvelStudios wants characters to be comedic. That sucks

Only time can tell whether irrespective of such changes the villain has something credible to offer to the fans who were eager to see him again after such a long time. The audience can only hope that these teasers are not a true representation of the bigger, more complete picture.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law will see the premiere of its first episode exclusively on Disney+ on 18 August 2022.
