Jennifer Walters is one of the best late Bronze Age character additions to the Marvel Universe, popularizing an intelligent, team-friendly Hulk before Peter David and Todd McFarlane made it cool. It would be easy to underestimate Jen as a mere copycat of her cousin Bruce Banner, but She-Hulk is a powerful, fascinating individual, blending charisma, a legal degree, and powerhouse strength across the landscape of Marvel Comics.
Below you’ll find a complete guide to She-Hulk comics throughout the years, from her origins to today. I’ve placed the Comic Book Herald logo next to my picks for personal favorites!
