Adapted for small screens by Jessica Gao, this 10-episode series will tell the origin story of Jennifer Walters (Maslany), a lawyer who specializes in superhuman legal cases and has the ability to transform into a big, powerful green superhero. Strongly similar to her cousin and Avenger Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) who we know as the Incredible Hulk. Ruffalo will reprise her role as Hulk in the series, potentially as a mentor character for Jennifer as she discovers and hones her powers. Besides, Tim Roth is set to return as the villain Abomination, which he played with Edward Nortonof Hulk in 2008 The Incredible Hulk and very briefly in recent times Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Good place star Jameela Jamil was also cast as the super god Titania. And in somewhat surprising news, the President of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige confirm that She is heavy will be one legal comedy, and, like she does in the comics, will break down the fourth wall.


Let’s find out the sensational She-Hulk. Who is this green lawyer and what other heroes has she worked with? And what anti-hero role did she take on as her client?

Who is Jennifer Walters?

Come over, Bruce, your cousin is in town. The She-Hulk has, so far, been pushed aside and lost in the Hulk’s shadow. But comic book readers know well how powerful and important this character is in the Marvel world. Created by Stan Lee and John Buscema, She-Hulk first appeared in The Savage She-Hulk #1 1980, with cover reminiscent of The Incredible Hulk #1 in 1962. In both cases, Hulked-out versions of themselves hide behind their innocent selves.

In classic superhero fashion, Jennifer got her powers from an accident. Well, sort of. In his debut spin-off “The She-Hulk Lives”, Bruce Banner is on the run from the authorities and eventually arrives in Los Angeles. For Bruce, Jennifer was truly the last person he could trust and open up to, and he decided to take the opportunity to visit her at work, where she is now a successful lawyer. They hadn’t seen each other since they were kids, and Jennifer wasn’t even used to his new identity as the Hulk. During their meeting, however, their comfortable relationship immediately returned as if no time had passed, with Jennifer calling him by the nickname she gave him, “Doc.” Later, Bruce tells her about how he became the Hulk and couldn’t control his rage transformation.

Jennifer is determined to help Bruce heal his pale condition, but he fears it will put her life in danger. As a criminal attorney, she deals with crime, illegality, and tangible threats, and explains that danger is simply a part of her life now. In fact, her current case is rather messy. She represents Lou Monkton, a young criminal accused of murdering crime boss Nick Trask’s bodyguard. Nick was responsible for the death of Jennifer’s mother, Elaine, and rivaled Jennifer’s father, Los Angeles Police Chief William Morris Walters. Unbeknownst to Jennifer, Nick sent two thugs to kill her, and they were watching Jennifer in her office parking lot as she explained the case to Bruce. While thugs follow them to Jennifer’s house, Bruce tries to convince her that she needs to be even safer, because if Nick really kills his bodyguard, she might be next. . And sure enough, she was.

As she got out of the car, thugs shot her in the back and she started losing a lot of blood. Fortunately, the shot wasn’t fatal and Bruce, although brimming with emotion, managed to contain his anger enough not to lunge at the Hulk. He fights thugs and (accidentally) breaks into an empty doctor’s office and, using his blood, transfuses her. Because the blood flowing through his veins was soaked with gamma radiation, it had a chemical reaction inside Jennifer. Thanks to Bruce’s quick thinking, she survived and made it to the hospital. Bad news for Bruce, though, as he’s now a suspect in her fatal shooting. Another target on his back, he fled the city. (At least he’s walking in.)

In the hospital, Jennifer regrets not taking Bruce’s warnings seriously, and notices that her bones feel…distinctive. She is then approached by three strange men claiming to be doctors willing to give her medication. Jennifer didn’t buy it, and it turns out Trask’s men were actually hoping to knock her out with chloroform. A sudden spike in adrenaline turned her into what men called “She-Hulk,” and she successfully fought men in her new green and muscular state. They even admitted that it was Trask who hired them to kill her. She concludes that it was Bruce’s blood that did this to her, but instead of being embarrassed or scared about her newfound powers and abilities, she accepts her new identity. And unlike Bruce, she still retains her personality and intelligence when transformed into her monstrous state.

Since her debut in 1980, She-Hulk has been involved in a number of groups, complex plots, and overall character evolution. She fought Thanos, the Abomination, became a quasi-member of the Fantastic Four, and joined the Avengers. She’s the believable hero some of her eclectic colleagues call it. Even as Jennifer Walters, her usual surrogate, she represented Morbius, The Living Vampire in court when he was charged with murder (like, a lot of murder). In her various manga, she has been romantically involved with Starfox (Thanos’ brother), J. Jonah Jameson’s son John (better known as The Wolf Man), Luke Cage and Wyatt Wingfoot (Johnny Storm’s roommate).

In 60 issues She-Hulk sensational starting in 1989, John Byrne introduced a softer, more self-aware version of the character who broke the fourth wall (just as Deadpool will do in the not-too-distant future) and called Byrne, the writer-artist, for placing her into difficult situations. With the fact that She is heavy the series is set to be a comedy, and the trailer suggests she’s speaking directly to the audience, the drama will likely resemble Byrne Splash run.

She is heavy hit Disney+ in 2022.
