She-Hulk: Lawyer has been filled with surprising connections to Marvel Comics lore, bringing some wild characters into Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk’s (Tatiana Maslany) orbit. Thanks to Jen’s role as a high-profile superhero lawyer, quite a few of these heroes and villains have surfaced through various lawsuits — and a newly released clip from the show’s next episode shows the craziest yet. The clip released by Weekly entertainmentpreviews Jen’s next legal client – Eugene Patillo / Leap-Frog (Brandon Stanley), who moonlights as an amphibian-themed superhero… and is apparently considering legal action over a faulty pair of jet boots.
Who is Leap-Frog in Marvel Comics?
Leap-Frog has a unique Marvel Comics tenure – originally created by Stan Lee, Gene Colan and Frank Giacoia in 1967’s Daredevil #25, Vincent Patillo was originally a low-key inventor dressed in a frog suit with enhanced flipper-shaped boots, which allowed him to jump great distances. Over the years, he went toe-to-toe with Matt Murdock / Daredevil several times, and was even represented by Matt’s law firm in court. He eventually landed in prison and after his release worked to support his young son, Eugene. Eugene later grew up and donned a version of his father’s costume as Frogman, operating in a more heroic context (to the occasional chagrin of other superheroes).
Based on this clip, as well as the extra early looks we’ve gotten, it looks like She-Hulk will be working with a mix of Leap-Frog and Frog-Man, with the latter’s civilian name and altruistic intentions, and the former’s superhero name . While we’ll have to wait and see exactly where things go from there, we already know he’ll also cross paths with Jen and Matt (played by Charlie Cox) in a superhero context.
