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 a Lawyer?

 

This week’s She-Hulk question comes from India in Bacon Level, Alabama. India asks, “Is She-Hulk a lawyer?”


A lot of people may have seen the Disney+ tease for She-Hulk recently, where Jennifer Walters (played by Tatiana Maslany and NOT Melissa Fumero), looks like she’s starring in a low budget legal commercial.


The show, which I know as much about as you do, is supposed to be a half-hour legal comedy when it airs sometime in 2022. With my luck, probably sometime after the comet hits and no one will be around to see it.


Fuck you, giant space rock. I want my Disney+ She-Hulk TV show!





As far as the Marvel comics go, yes, She-Hulk is a lawyer.


When she’s not saving the world with her friends, Jennifer Walters can be found tangled up in some superhero-themed legal nonsense in the pages of her own series. (There’s also a new She-Hulk solo series coming in 2022 but I couldn’t tell you if she’s a lawyer in that one or not just yet.)


What I can tell you, since my wheelhouse is the She-Hulk of the 1980s, is that when Jennifer Walters first appeared in The Savage She-Hulk #1, she’s introduced to us as a criminal defense attorney, defending a mobster being framed for murder.


Ever since then, She-Hulk has appeared on and off (usually on some kind of secret rotation with Matthew Murdock, it would seem) to represent various heroes and villains. Best portrayed in the Dan Slott run on She-Hulk.


So, I hope that answers your question, India!
