10 Must-Read She-Hulk Comics For MCU Fans

In the new Disney+ series She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, starring Tatiana Malsany (Orphan BlackPerry Mason) and Jameela Jamil (The Good Place), the origin of lawyer Jen Walters’s superhero code-name is the subject of legal dispute, but in real life, She-Hulk came into existence precisely to avoid such squabbles. Like Spider-Woman before her, She-Hulk was the idea of Marvel lawyers hoping to avoid trademark violations and expand the line, simply by gender-swapping an existing property. Thus, we met Bruce Banner’s heretofore unseen cousin, who gains gamma powers after a blood transfusion, becoming the Savage She-Hulk.

From those mundane beginnings, She-Hulk quickly developed into one of the most unique and compelling heroes in the Marvel Universe. Recreated into a fourth-wall-breaking comedy hero, a full decade before Deadpool was even a dour Deathstroke the Terminator rip-off, She-Hulk earned her place in fan’s hearts, serving as a significant member of both the Fantastic Four and the Avengers. Since then, she’s been a mainstay on comic store shelves, as creators line up to put their own spin on the character.

With its self-aware sitcom approach, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law will thrill some and alienate others. But even if the show doesn’t work for you, you’ll find a wide range of She-Hulk adventures in these great comics.
