known as She-Hulk holds a unique place in the
Marvel Universe of characters. She-Hulk, cousin to
the Hulk (Bruce Banner), is publicly known as
Jennifer Walters, top-notch attorney for the firm
of Goodman, Lieber, Kurtzberg & Holliway, whose
specialty is the growing field of Superhuman Law.
As the She-Hulk, Walters is a member of the
Avengers, as well as an on-and-off again member of
Walters became the
She-Hulk after an assassination attempt (prompted
by her legal work), left her wounded and bleeding.
Bruce Banner, her cousin, performed a blood
transfusion, giving her his blood. The procedure
saved her life, but as his blood is tainted with
gamma radiation, (this is the radiation that turns
him into the Hulk), Jennifer Walters soon
transformed into the She-Hulk, a green-skinned
female version of her beast-like cousin's
alter-ego. It soon became apparent though, that
unlike her unlucky cousin, Walters did not become a
raging beast, but instead kept her keen intellect
when transformed into the She-Hulk. However, when
she is in "Hulk mode," the She-Hulk is a much less
inhibited woman than the mild and meek Jennifer
Walters. Among the female heroes of the Marvel
Universe, She-Hulk is known as quite a partier and
a player in the field of sexual encounters. Among
her bedmates and lovers are heroes, villains,
walking plants, and the occasional werewolf-like
creature. Starfox, Juggernaut, Luke Cage, Wyatt
Wingfoot, The Man-Thing, and her new husband, John
Jameson (Man-Wolf), are only some of her more
famous bedroom conquests. Her party girl behavior
even got her kicked out of Avengers Mansion by
Given the fact that
She-Hulk is a tall, powerful and voluptuous
green-skinned woman with a fairly low level of
inhibition, many of her sexy costumes tend toward
the skimpy and risqué. On at least one
occasion, She-Hulk's powerfully built naked bosom
(visible when her costume could no longer take the
strain in the vacuum of space), distracted a
cluster of (male) alien villains so effectively,
her team-up partner, Razorback, was able to destroy
their ship and thus save the day. Her lack of
modesty also makes her the occasional target of the
paparazzi, who on one occasion successfully took a
photograph of a topless She-Hulk as she sunbathed
on the roof of a building. Despite these hijinks,
she is greatly respected for her keen intellect and
for her sharp legal mind.
Her most recent
adventures are in relation to her work with the law
firm of Goodman, Lieber, Kurtzberg & Holliway.
As a result of legal cases involving the firm,
She-Hulk has been transported off-planet to take
part in an alien boxing match, been put on trial
for messing with the time stream, been made into a
babysitter for a budding super villainess named
Southpaw, who happens to be the granddaughter of
Jennifer Walters' boss! She still works with the
Avengers when needed, and, despite her many
adventures and romances, she still has time to
attend the Thing's poker games.
During the recent
Marvel civil war, She-Hulk sided with the
pro-government super hero force led by Iron Man.
She-Hulk not only represented the much-hated and
maligned Speedball in his legal battle with the
government, she also appeared on the Larry King
show, among others, explaining why so many heroes
signed up with the Superhero Registration Act.
She-Hulk was present during the attempted
assassination of Speedball at the U.S. Capital in
She-Hulk is also
known by various nicknames bestowed on her by
friends and foes alike. These include: The Savage
She-Hulk and Shulkie.
