At the start of She-Hulk #5, She-Hulk seeks out the Shocker to ask him some questions regarding a case she is currently dealing with. Part of the conversation added some interesting thoughts about how the villains of the MU view that universe's heroes.

Shocker "Guys like me, we got a list of people like you. Like a rating system. You got your Daredevils, you Iron Fists -- those guys, you fight. Maybe you get lucky, or maybe you're actually good enough to beat 'em. Now, any Hulk -- lady, dude, red, green, purple -- you see a Hulk. you run, Thors too."

She-Hulk "Thors, there's only one Thor."

Shocker "Nah, lots, the fat one with the red beard, the hot blonds gal, the weird one with the horse face."

She-Hulk "Those guys aren't Thor. That's Volstagg, Valkyrie and..."

Shocker "Yep, Thors, trust me, all Thors."

It was interesting to find out that the MU's villains classify the heroes, but something I realized I should have known all along that they probably did do. It's not like human beings don't do this in just about any and all other aspects of life. I did find it funny that anyone connected to Asgard is called a Thor

His talk about the Hulks and the Thors makes me wonder what other names the MU's villains have come up with for the heroes. I suspect there's a name for any hero connected to Spider-Man. It also makes me wonder if the villains of the DCU do the same thing. I can imagine if they do that there's a nickname for that big group of Batman related characters.

It's a pretty genius take if you asked me.

I thought when he said "red beard" he meant Roger Norvell.

Red Norvell isn't fat though, so Shocker couldn't have been referring to him.

I would imagine the DC villains have something similar. It should be a combination of power and personality.

Nightwing is more appealing than Batman.

Captain Marvel/Shazam is more appealing than Black Adam (when he is a hero and written by Johns)

I LOVED the repartee between She-Hulk and Shocker in this issue. Charles Soule is a top-notch writer. I have really enjoyed this series so far, from art to story, despite She-Hulk never being a character that really interested me.
