Here’s a Little Ditty, About Jack and Jen, He’s Got A Heart On His Face, And She’s 6 Foot Ten.

By Michael Keskeys Hello friends, and fellow She-Hulk fans, we are back once again to discuss the latest issue of “She-Hulk” by Rainbow Rowell, Rico Renzi, and Roge Antonio. I’m so glad to have recently heard from the writer herself on Facebook that the series is ongoing, and not just a limited series as some of the solicits have suggested, which is fantastic news, as this is a character that deserves to have an ongoing series as much as any other Marvel character, especially as we have our Shulkie back again after a recent stint of being just a green (and briefly red, rage monster) This issue picks up where we left off last time, Jen’s off to work, where she runs into a former co-worker from the Dan Slott run, which I legit cheered when I saw their return, and we get some brief work-related humor as Jen goes through her rolodex of super friends to find some work and we get some great interaction with Jen and her Fantastic Four teammate Ben Grimm. We also get some more on Jack of Heart

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…
