She Hulk - Attorney At Law


It was a nice surprise to see another Marvel series on the TV. I needed something to look forward to every week and this one fits the bill. She-Hulk had her most success in the comics when they made her the lawyer of choice for the superhero community. Her character often broke the forth wall and that made for a lot of fun with a character that's perfect for satire. Thankfully the TV series takes much the same tone. 

Like her cousin Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), she has the strength of a gamma radiated person but not the rage issues the Hulk has. However, being a female Hulk comes with it's own set of problems. I thought the motion capture worked well given the limits of television budgets. We get a lot of sweet superhero action right from the jump.

Episode One takes care of Jen's origin and how she learned to use her powers. We also see how much different and new kind of Hulk that she is. I really enjoyed the first episode and look forward to the entire ten episode first season. This one is getting review bombed by people who hate female heroes in general but you shouldn't listen to them. This one is light and funny. Watch for yourself and you will become a fan.

I was very happy with the first ep. Really looking forward to the rest of the series PLUS Mark spilled the beans and said She-Hulk will be in the new avengers movies. Already got my marvel legends figure pre-ordered. Great tome to be a Shulkie fan!

Well, based on your review, I'll put it on my list but I don't have time to watch it right now. I'm making my way through 6 seasons worth of "Lucifer" on Netflix. It's stupid AF but very amusing.
