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

Can She Hulk Turn Back Into Human Form?

Come one, come all as the great Maestro prepares to amaze you with more answers for all your She-Hulk questions! Wait.., you’re telling me Maestro is an evil version of the Hulk from an alternate timeline? *Sigh* I knew I should’ve checked to see if the name was taken. Looks like I’ll just continue to go by Devin for now.


This week, I’ll be answering the question on whether or not She-Hulk can change back into her human form. Que the intro music, BJ!


[Every Heart Needs a Home by St Paul Peterson plays.]


*Record scratches*


Greaaaat. Looks like the little number I had all picked out just scratched its way into oblivion. Can’t win them all I guess!


Alright, gang, so we all know that Jennifer Walters, aka She-Hulk, loves to rock her giant green persona.


But can she turn back into a regular human like her much angrier cousin has been shown doing? Let’s take a look!


During an issue of Savage She-Hulk, after Jennifer survived the second attempt on her life inside of the hospital Bruce Banner brought her to, her transformation into She-Hulk occurred. After the short-lived battle, she was dubbed “She-Hulk” by one of the mobsters before trapping them all for the police. Once She-Hulk was out of danger, she was able to return to her standard human size to conceal her identity from that of She-Hulk and go about her daily activities as Jennifer Walters; Before long Jen and She-Hulk were revealed as being one and the same, which worked wonders for her in the grand scheme of things.


[Editor’s Note from BJ: What is “Standard Human Size” and why isn’t it the name of a band by now?]


Shockingly, this is only half of the answer.


Much later in She-Hulk’s career, she eventually was unable to control her switching between She-Hulk and Jennifer Walters. Eventually, Jennifer realized that her inability to change back into the strong, more in control She-Hulk was purely psychological after a short bout of being unable to switch to her more preferred form.


Before long, Jennifer would go back to being able to control her switching forms with ease, as she was far more fond of being a giant green lawyer.


Man, I bet Bruce would have killed to control his transformations like his dear old cousin. For such a smart guy, he could’ve figured out how to do that I’d imagine.


So, to answer the question, yes She-Hulk can indeed change back into her human form from her usual gamma-irradiated hero persona.


I honestly can’t blame She-Hulk for not wanting to switch to her normal human self. Why be a regular, scrawny person when you can be a nearly seven-foot-tall, green lawyer that bench presses semi-trucks?


I bet BJ would agree with me, right buddy?



That’s all she wrote!


Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a couple of appointments with a gamma specialist as I too would love to be a jade green super writer.
