She Hulk to assume the Hulk mantle
Having the Hulk name has been detrimental to your health lately. The Civil War II story-line has not been good to Gamma Ray Goliaths. Jennifer Walters (She-Hulk) suffers near fatal injuries from Thanos, Bruce Banner (Hulk) is killed by Hawkeye, General Thunderbolt Ross (Red Hulk) is incarcerated in a classified military prison, Betty Ross (Red She-Hulk) and Skaar (Hulk’s Son) are cured of their mutation but is seen mourning Bruce at his funeral, Amadeus Cho (Totally Awesome Hulk) is distraught over Bruce’s death and goes searching for Hawkeye. Bet you didn’t know there were so many Hulks did ya?
Remember in the last paragraph when I said Jennifer Walters suffered “NEAR” fatal injuries? Well, gues what? She doesn’t die. In fact she will be coming back with her own title in late December. Sounds like this time they are making her a bit more volatile. She is a lawyer when she isn’t She-Hulk. She is able to retain her level headed intelligence and logical thinking when she transforms into She-Hulk… at least she used to be able to control the beastly rage within.
It would be nice to see one of the other Hulks be able to sustain their own title for the long term. I’m hoping this writing team can make She-Hulk a character capable of carrying her own title. She has been a supporting role for far too long in other team comics.
