Jennifer Walters needed a blood transfusion from her cousin Bruce Banner after getting shot by some thugs in a case she was working as a lawyer.
This transfusion by Bruce (that he performs himself) caused her to get a milder form of his Hulk persona, thus making her the She-Hulk.
Her first appearance was in her very own title, Savage She-Hulk #1.
She-Hulk has been a member of the Avengers, S.H.I.E.L.D., Defenders, Heroes for Hire and many others. As a lawyer, she’s even represented other heroes.
This comic is still surprisingly affordable for most collectors I think and it’s not so much of a not if but when she makes it into the MCU we can expect this first appearance to explode. It’s certainly one of those key books that should be in every collectors long box.
She-Hulk was created primarily due to the success of the Incredible Hulk television series (I was a big fan as a kid, this was my favorite show) and a counter to the Bionic Woman television series.
For those not aware, this first issue was written entirely by Stan Lee as the creator of She-Hulk but it was the only issue he wrote for the series. It was also the last Marvel character he created until 1992.
That’s your Throwback Thursday to wrap up February.
