I mentioned in a recent post how I was not in favor of the over-proliferation of Hulk-like characters, as it diluted the concept. She-Hulk, however I can give a pass to. Turning strong and green due to Gamma radiation is where her similarities with he cousin end. Jennifer Walters not only retains her intelligence upon Hulking out, she prefers life as a She-Hulk, which makes for a very different character from the tortured and cure seeking Bruce Banner. I first really took notice of She Hulk as a team member of The Avengers and The Fantastic Four. I enjoyed John Byrne's brief run on her second series that used the conceit that Jennifer Walters knew full well that she was a comic character, and was disappointed that that aspect of the character has bot stayed with her. I also very much enjoyed the recent Dan Slott She-Hulk series, he was able to strike the nice mix of action and humor that suits her.
