Let me start out by clearing stating... I LOVE SHE-HULK.

But really, what's not to love. Big. Smart. Beautiful. Strong. Powerful. Sassy woman who just happens to be emerald green!

Created in 1980, JENNIFER WALTERS first appears as a meek, mild and demure lawyer. Caught in a gangster's crossfire and seriously wounded, it is the blood transfusion from the only viable donor, her cousin BRUCE BANNER, who's gamma-irradiated blood transforms her into the jade giantess, SHE-HULK.

Through the 35 years of publication She-hulk has become a mainstay in many of Marvel's major comic events, and a stalwart member of its most prestigious teams, namely the Avengers, Fantastic Four and S.H.I.E.L.D. According to former She-Hulk writer Peter David,

She-Hulk has the potential to be our Wonder Woman. A powerful female with a strong moral center and a determination to do what's right. She's also a unique combination of brains and brawn. The ideal She-Hulk story is one that plays on both aspects of her make-up, the intelligence combined with her strength.

The epitome of a superwoman, Jen Walters/She-Hulk embodies all the dynamic qualities of womanhood. These very same aspects that a certain Emmy Award winning show perfectly captured in a charming and quirky way.

SEX AND THE CITY was a TV dramedy that aired on HBO from 1998 through 2004 (with two movies in 2008 and 2010), which followed the hijinks of four Manhattanite women as they attempted to navigate through the trials and tribulations of modern womanhood.

In her fantastic article The 4 Facets Of Womanhood According To Sex And The City Ella Ceron breakdowns some key feminine qualities as they align with Charlotte, Miranda, Samantha, and Carrie. She-Hulk, like every women, is all four of these Sex And The City characters rolled into one, so why can't we have a cable tv or Netflix show that recreates all of these facets of the green glamazon.


So, a SHE-HULK: ATTORNEY AT LAW would be set in the ever expanding MCU and would follow Jen Walters/She-hulk as she navigates through the rocky waters of being a top notch lawyer and litigator whose clients include the victims of supervillians, and supervillians themselves (think BOSTON LEGAL), while balancing her role as a superhero, and more importantly coping with being a SATC woman.


Just as Miranda is the take no nonsense "ball-buster" on Sex And The City, She-Hulk the lawyer and superhero is a hard nosed fighter and realist. Seeing her dominate with her wits in a courtroom and with her fists in the street would be inspirational.


While Carrie is the lead on SATC, she represented the inner conversation and melodrama that isn't normal spoken. With the 4th wall breaking penchant that She-Hulk has often done, that internal conversation becomes a dialogue that the audience takes part in. And a fun dialogue it can be.

See Deadpool isn't the only one...
See Deadpool isn't the only one...
who can break the 4th wall.
who can break the 4th wall.


So while SATC's Samantha is unashamed sexuality, She-Hulk's sexuality is based in independence. Her strength and power allow her to openly express herself sexually in ways her alter-ego will not. Can you imagine the types of "energetic" sex scenes She-Hulk could wind up in. Whew!


While Charlotte served as the example of demure femininity on Sex And The City, it is Jen Walters, not She-Hulk, who struggles with integrating her super-alter ego with her often "old school" view of a woman's role. Done correctly, Jen would ultimately be the heart of the show.

And if a SHE-HULK show were to come to fruition, one of my absolute favorite storylines to see depicted would be when she "fought" to obtain illegally taken nude pictures. It's such a good story.

Have fun!
