Artist J. Totino Tedesco has revealed his '80s-inspired cover for Marvel Comics #1000, which was previously announced as a part of the landmark issue's list of decades-inspired variants. Standing front and center on the cover is none other than superhero lawyer Jennifer Walters, better known as She-Hulk.
The variant, which was shared on Twitter, shows Shulkie sporting '80s-esque workout attire, including a crop top, sweatbands and even a Walkman. Standing around She-Hulk are other Marvel heroes who are rocking '80s-themed looks of their own, including a gray-skinned Hulk, Wolverine in his yellow and brown suit, Thor in his battle armor and an enamored Spider-Man in his fan-favorite black costume.
Jen Walters was a significant part of Marvel's product line during the '80s. Her first solo series, Savage She-Hulk, launched in 1980 and ran through 1982. She-Hulk's star only rose when she became a member of the Fantastic Four in 1984. Finally, Sensational She-Hulk launched in 1989. It was this character-defining title that established Shulkie as Marvel's resident fourth wall-breaker, years before that became Deadpool's schtick. The comic ran through 1994.
Marvel Comics #1000 will start from 1939 and work its way to the present day, with each page correlating to one year in the publisher's history. Along with celebrity contributors are also names from Marvel's storied past, including George Pérez, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Kurt Busiek, Walter Simonson and more. The landmark issue arrives in August, followed by Marvel Comics #1001 in September.
