History Of She-Hulk:
Stan Lee created She-Hulk the one who wrote only the first issue. And she was the last character that Stan Lee created for Marvel Comics. Until his return to comics with Ravage 2099 in 1992. He created this because of the success of The Incredible Hulk (1977–1982) and The Bionic Woman television series. Marvel Cinematic Universe was afraid that the show’s executives might suddenly introduce a female version of the Hulk. As had been done with The Six Million Dollar Man. So the company decided to publish its own version of such a character. This was done in order to make sure that if a similar one showed up in the television series. Then the Marvel would own the rights. Ironically, Jennifer Walters has proved something of a hit.
Jennifer Walters got superhuman powers from a transfusion of gamma-irradiated blood from her cousin Bruce Banner (the Hulk). When she is in her form, she possesses enormous superhuman strength. Thus, when her emotional state is sufficiently high she potentially becomes the physically strongest known woman in the Marvel Universe.
Although She-Hulk’s strength originally remained at a set level and did not increase. Later in her history, her strength has sporadically been stated to increase further from anger or fear which is as similar to her cousin. In addition, the character possesses superhuman speed, agility, stamina, and reflexes which her cousin does not possess.
In The Immortal She-Hulk #1 written by Al Ewing with art by Jon Davis-Hunt, she is about to get an immortal upgrade. Her transformation will come spinning out of the aftermath of the Empyre event.
While there is not much known about the coming Empyre series and tie-ins. We do know that the alien Kree and Skrull empires have been pitted against the Avengers and Fantastic Four, lead by the Kree/Skrull hybrid Hulkling. Penned by none other than Ewing alongside Dan Slott, with art from Valerio Schiti Empyre #1 is set to release July 15, 2020.
Nominated for an Eisner award, The Immortal Hulk redefined the character as a horror series that has seen both critical and commercial success. The series sees the Devil Hulk locking away the other Hulk personas deep within Bruce Banner’s mind. The series began with the Hulk only coming out at night — now known as the Hulk’s time. Scientists attempted to test the lengths of Hulk’s immortality in the most gruesome way possible. By cutting him up and placing his body parts in jars. That, coupled with truly gnarly transformations have cemented The Immortal Hulk firmly in the horror genre. Working together, Bruce and Hulk have taken on climate change before they were forced to face off against the original Hulk. With the announcement of the Immortal She-Hulk. Fans now know that the lore Ewing has carefully crafted with the One-Below-All has indeed reached Bruce’s cousin Jennifer.
Jennifer Walters continued to be a green-skinned lawyer after getting her Hulk powers from her cousin. And rose to be a hero in her own right to join the Avengers herself. Recently joining forces with Thor to deal with a deadly Thunder Smash attack, she has recently seen her powers grow. Thus, becoming a literal walking gamma-bomb making her the most powerful hulk yet. With Jennifer undergoing such drastic changes recently the thought of her taking on the Immortal traits of her cousin should excite all fans. With Ewing at the helm, we can only hope that the book will not only expand on the lore being built in the Immortal Hulk. But explore the psychological effects of Jennifer’s recent traumas that lead her to become the Immortal. And if this issue also spurs an on-going horror series later on, well that would be more than OK with us.
