15SHE-HULK

Marvel Women She-Hulk

It seems like every time there’s a little bit of upheaval in the Marvel Universe, She-Hulk gets caught in the crossfire. Whether we’re talking “Avengers Disassembled” or the more recent “Civil War II,” it seems like She-Hulk must pay a price. Jennifer Walters was created in 1980

by the legendary Stan Lee and John Buscema, debuting in the eponymous series “Savage She-Hulk.” Walters transformed into a female version of the Hulk after her cousin Bruce Banner saved her life with a blood transfusion. She-Hulk has been an integral part of the Marvel Universe, often pushing the boundaries of mainstream superhero comics in the process.

Her second ongoing series was notorious for breaking comics' fourth wall years before Deadpool made it a thing, and dealt with a wide array of social issues. A former member of the Fantastic Four and onetime leader of A-Force, She-Hulk is also a practicing lawyer specializing in cases of a superhuman nature. Although she currently struggles with anger issues in the wake of the aforementioned “Civil War II,” she remains a strong symbol of female empowerment in the Marvel Universe, predating later heroines such as America Chavez by over 30 years.
