“Ninety percent of lawyering is conversations. What’s the other ten percent? Mostly beating up robots apparently.”
Jennifer Walters; lawyer, fighter, hero, Avenger, and a woman who doesn’t take any crap from anyone. But sometimes even the She-Hulk can’t smash her way through her issues and has to rely on her skills and intelligence to get the job done.
The Ups: I’m really starting to think there is nothing Charles Soule can’t write that just isn’t pure gold, from comedy to action, from love stories and quirky life stories of the everyday powerful superhero. The story is refreshing take on how She-Hulk’s lawyer life is and the lengths she will go to use her lawyer skills to help her clients and not just smash and punch everything (well sort of.) Soule gives us a charming yet empowering read on how She-Hulk takes on a seemingly losing case against Tony Stark and the funny obstacles along the way. There was no need for action as just the story alone was the right amount of charm, humor and wit to keep anyone interested even if you know nothing of the character She-Hulk. Pulido and Vicente bring some interesting artwork to the table, for me it felt like something along the lines of the current artwork in Daredevil, but like Daredevil the style fits this series perfectly. The art goes with the same everyday life feel and keeping the upbeat vibe along with the story.
Overall: This was a wonderful start to series to a well loved character. It’s nice to see stories that aren’t all about the world ending or alien invasions, but to the stories real people like you and me can relate to and even superpowered heroes have to struggle with the everyday problems.
