Today, in my Women in Comics post, the spotlight turns to Jennifer Walters, better known as the She-Hulk. The She-Hulk was created by Stan Lee and John Buscema for Marvel Comics. She debuted in Savage She-Hulk #1(February 1980).
Jennifer Walters is the cousin of Bruce Banner, also know as The Hulk. Jennifer was severely injured, and Bruce gave her a life saving blood transfusion. In doing so, Bruce’s gamma irradiated blood gave Jennifer a milder form of the Hulk condition. She hulks out, but still maintains her intellect. She just really turns into a bigger, greener version of herself. She still has anger issues, but maintains more control than her cousin does. Jennifer is a very accomplished lawyer, having defended many of the super heroes of the Marvel Universe. She has been a member of various super hero teams over the years, including the Avengers, The Fantastic Four, and S.H.I.E.L.D..
She-Hulk has appeared in various Incredible Hulk cartoons. She is currently appearing on Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.. there have been a few tv and movie projects attached the the She-Hulk character, but none of them have reached completion. She is another deserving character that deserves a tv show in the very least.
She-Hulk has been a pretty cool character that has helped improve many of the books she has appeared in, especially the Fantastic Four. She has had her own self titled book numerous times over the years, with her latest title launching just last week. If you want to learn more about this dynamic character, check here.
