I’ve got a question for your “Comic Book Questions Answered” column: Has Matt
Murdock ever faced She-Hulk in court?
Read on for the answer, Lee!
As you are all well aware by now, Matt “Daredevil” Murdock and Jennifer “She-Hulk” Walters are two of the most prominent superheroes who are also lawyers. For the most part, Matt Murdock has worked as a litigator in his own firm (typically Nelson and Murdock), but currently he is working for the New York District Attorney. Jennifer Walters worked for a number of years as a prosecutor in New York, then worked as a litigator for a big firm and currently has her own small firm.
Historically, Matt Murdock has often been the go-to lawyer for Marvel writers to use when they want someone to represent one of their heroes in court.
A couple of his more notable trials included the tragic case of the White Tiger being falsely accused of murdering a police officer…
And Johnny Storm, the Human Torch, being put on trial for accidentally burning down the Empire State University campus…
In recent years, though, She-Hulk’s legal career has taken on more prominence, as Daredevil’s comic has rarely spent TOO much time on Matt’s career as a lawyer, while Dan Slott and Charles Soule have both done She-Hulk series that spotlight her legal career.
She-Hulk was perhaps most notably the lawyer for Speedball during Civil War…
While in her own comic, she hilariously represented Spider-Man…
as well as Starfox in a cosmic trial…
But oddly enough, they never actually went up against each other in court.
In the excellent She-Hulk #4 (by Charles Soule, Javier Pulido and Munsta Vicente), She-Hulk goes to Matt for advice…
and when it is all done, they even address the fact that they’ve never gone up against each other….
So that’s it, right? That’s the answer right there.
