She-Hulk Will Hold Court In Her Own Series This February
Marvel NOW! phase 2 recently announced titles like Inhumans, The Invaders, a big new story featuring The Avengers, and possibly some big developments for Silver Surfer and Black Widow. Today we learn about another new title launching in Marvel’s next big push to give readers a jumping on point. Writer Charles Soule (Thunderbolts) and artist Javier Pulido (Incredible Hulk, Human Target) will be launching a new series featuring She-Hulk. Jennifer Walters will be trying to balance her two jobs: hero and lawyer. USA Today had the rundown on the upcoming series.
Soule, a lawyer himself, will be bringing a lot of fresh ideas to the character that has had a few successful solo-series since her introduction in the 1980s. Not only will we see the female Hulk punch things in the face, we’ll also follow her inside the courtroom as she works her day job. The writer on what he thinks is interesting about the character:
She-Hulk has always been a title where weird, cool things can happen. She is a strong — very strong — female character, and comics absolutely cannot have too many of those. There’s no reason Jennifer Walters can’t be iconic, and we’re going to do what we can to make that happen.
She-Hulk will feature short stories that play out between one and three issues each. Charles Soule thinks the character’s perfectionist nature is ripe with potential. When you go out and try to save the world and then come into a courtroom and work another job, you may stretch yourself a little thin:
One of the things I want to explore is the fact that she wants to be exceptional at everything she does, but that’s not always possible. You can spread yourself too thin. She’ll be out on her own, without much of a support group at first, a total underdog trying to make good. I love stories like that — Jen’s going to be very easy to root for.
The series will feature several guest stars over the first several issues. A “huge” guest star will be appearing in the first issue with other A-listers playing an important role in the first arc.
