She-Hulk: Attorney at Law- A Different Marvel series
Updated: Oct 24, 2022
She-Hulk series has ended, and I may be one of the rare people who enjoyed the series. She-Hulk/Jen Walter (Tatiana Maslany) went through a lot this season. Jen Walter became She-Hulk by getting her cousin Bruce Banner aka Hulk’s (Mark Ruffalo) blood into her system, after an accident. This instantly turned her into a Hulk. Of course, with this newfound power comes it struggles but throughout Jen always had her BFF, sidekick, and paralegal Nikki Ramos (Ginger Gonzaga). Nikki is Jen’s sub conscious and always has her best interest at heart. As Jen strives to have a normal life, she soon finds that this is impossible. Jen has the love of her family, especially of her father Morris (Mark Lin Baker).

As Jen tries to continue to be the lawyer she always wanted to be, the world has she knows it changed when an enhanced person Titania (Jameela Jamil) interrupts Jen’s case and she must change into the Hulk to the surprise of the court. Due to their fight in the courthouse, Jen loses her job but then is hired at GHK&H which stands for Goodman, Lieber, Kurtzberg & Holliway. She is hired to help the enhanced and superhero cases. Jen creates a little family with paralegal Nikki and Associate attorney Pug (Joseph Segarra). Jen takes up clients like Meg the Stallion and Emil Blonsky also known as Abomination (Tim Roth) who you would know, if you saw Shang-Chi or The Incredible Hulk, Blonsky escaped from prison with the help of Wong (Benedict Wong) to cage fight. Jen was called to defend him.
Jen continues to come to grips with her dueling identities of just wanting to be Jen and She-Hulk. She turns to online dating and comes across a cast of characters, one of which she learns later in the season, wants her Hulk power. Jen learns that it’s not easy navigating her reality and her She-Hulk personality. Jen gets a client Eugen Patillo aka Leap Frog who is a rich, wannabe crime fighter, who sues Luke Jacobson (Griffin Matthews) who we learn is a fashion designer for superheroes, and of which She Hulk just asked to make her a dress for an awards party. Jacobson ended up making her a superhero suit that will stretch whether she’s Jen or She-Hulk. After Jen loses the court- case, she is fascinated by the attorney that represented Luke Jacobson. Jen later finds out that there is more than meets the eye with this attorney, as they both end up fighting each other because Jen’s client Leapfrog has gone off the deep end. She-Hulk learns that the person getting in the way is none other than attorney Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox).
The finale of the show is really a great compass of the overall season of She-Hulk. Jen is more at peace with her She-Hulk personality. Jen also breaks the fourth wall throughout the series but in the finale, she didn’t like how the story was going. In the ultimate fourth wall break, she goes to speak to the person in charge of where the Marvel stories go. She-Hulk goes to K.E.V.I.N (Knowledge Enhanced Visual Interconnectivity Nexus) whose is the A.I. that is in charge with the direction of her story. After speaking with Kevin, Jen gets the ending that she wants, since She-Hulk is her show.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is a different show than other Marvel series in Phase 4. This was a true sitcom series. The fourth wall breaks, the comedic quips, and different situations that Jen and the crew go through are different in its approach but connected to the main theme of the story. The main theme being how to navigate being a known superhero and having a normal life. By the end of the series, Jen is around her family, which is how we started the series. It will be fun to find out where Jen and Matt Murdock’s relationship goes, and we all want to know where The Hulk has been and when did he get a son Skaar? Also, will Blonsky open another retreat, Will Hulk King/Billionaire Todd Phelps (Jon Bass) come back and try to destroy She-Hulk again and will Wong and Madisynn (Patty Guggenheim) continue their friendship or will she leave Wong to find the next party. I’m sure we will get these answers in other Marvel entities. She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, was a bright light and change from the Marvel monotony that some of these prior series were turning into. She-Hulk is a sign that the tone of the Marvel universe is about to change.
