Can You Believe We're Getting a She-Hulk Series?

   By Michael Keskeys At the time of this writing, we are a little over two weeks out from the premiere of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law on Disney Plus.  A week ago, at Comicon, Marvel dropped a new trailer for the series, starring Tatiana Masanley ( Orphan Black) as our favorite gamma-powered superhero/attorney, and I’ve seen it so many times now and I still am in awe of the fact that we’re getting this show.   I’ve been a fan of this character since I was a 13-year-old kid getting into Marvel and saw some cheesecake pin-up art in an issue of Wizard Magazine.  That checked off all the boxes I needed at that age to try to find comics, and what I did was seek out what was the run at the time, Sensational She-Hulk, which was hilarious, awesome, and way more than just a cheesecake eye candy type character I went in for, and I’ve been a fan ever since.      The fact that she got to be a supporting character on the 90’s Hulk animated series was I figured as good as it would get for us fans, but

Is She-Hulk Always Green?

 



Is She-Hulk Always Green?


This week’s question comes from Jasper in Booger Hole, West Virginia. A place known for a whole bunch of murders about a hundred years ago and not much else.


Jasper’s question is a great one because, until I started the research for She-Hulk: From Savage to Sensational, I was under the impression that She-Hulk was always green.


To be clear, we’re talking about the Jennifer Walters She-Hulk, not the Red One. Or the other green one. (There’s … There’s a bunch of She-Hulks now, but this website is just concerned with the original.)


But I also have to be blunt with you: I haven’t read Mariko Tamaki’s run on She-Hulk, which occurred during the second Marvel Civil War and features Jennifer turning into a grey She-Hulk that is super strong, but limited mentally. (That’s an excellent way of saying the grey She-Hulk is kind of dumb.)


And just recently, in Jason Aaron’s Avengers run, we saw Jennifer turn into a new, Red She-Hulk called “The Winter Hulk,” which was sort of a mashup of Black Widow and She-Hulk, with She-Hulk (forcibly) going through the Red Room treatment. She’s better now.


I also haven’t read this series. It was awesome. I caught the first few issues of this current Avengers series, but I just got busy with other things.


Anyway, to answer your question, Jasper, She-Hulk is NOT always green. She’s been grey and red, and if you read my (unofficial) comic, yellow and blue as well.


And that’s all for… Wait. What’s that? I’m getting a note from my research team.


Steve Gerber had She-Hulk turn grey, briefly, in The Sensational She-Hulk?


Well, how did that…The Baloney Verse?


Look, man, ain’t nobody got time to explain that one…
