Long before Deadpool was even introduced, She-Hulk was the one character to break the fourth wall more. As many know, Hulk had a live action TV show that ran for many seasons. The studio that made that had plans to introduce a female version of the Hulk. Marvel got word of this and, fearing that the studio would completely own the rights to the character, rushed to introduce her into the comics before the studio did. Introduced in Savage She-Hulk #1 (1980) by Stan Lee and John Buscema, Jennifer Walter is the cousin of Bruce Banner, whose family Bruce was sent to live with after his mother death at the hand of his father. The two of them grew close like sibling. Years later, when Bruce had become Hulk and Jennifer became a lawyer, Bruce visited her while on the run. While the two were out and about, she was gunned down by gangsters she was trying. Fearing for her life, Bruce used his blood to save her. Later that night, the gangsters returned to finish the job but they were surprised to see her transformed into a female version of the Hulk, calling herself She-Hulk.

Savage at first, Jen gain control over both of her forms. She had a brief solo run before being invited to join the Avengers, where she currently hold the record for the longest Hulk to be a concurrent member. She was one of many people to be sent to Battleworld by the Beyonder, where she gained her arch-nemesis Titania. After she returned to Earth and Thing remained on Battleworld, she joined the Fantastic Four, again being the longest filler member of the F4. When Thing returned, she rejoined the Avengers after Avenger Under Siege. They later came into control of Dr. Druid and Terminatrix but after they were lost, she help Cap rebuild the team. She briefly became a member of the F4 offshoot, the Fantastic Force and was later hired by Heroes for Hire as their legal team.

When the Avengers were being ambush by false media news like rascism and Wasp was made chairman again, she invited She-hulk to rejoin. She would remain one that team until Disassembled where the radiation from an exploding Jack of Hearts cause Jen to go berserk and kill the Vision. She would join a big law company, working to help heroes in court. During this time and an encounter with Starfox, she encounter John Jameson and the 2 eventually married. She would later learn that Starfox had been accidentally using his powers to make the 2 fall in love and they eventually divorced.

During Civil war, she joined the Defenders. After learning that the Illuminati had sent her cousin into space, she attacked Iron Man who temporary depowered her. She later tried to stop her cousin during Planet Hulk but was defeated. She eventually regained her powers and began trying to find out who the Red She-Hulk was. After the Intelligencia were defeated, Hulk put his daughter under Jen’s care to allow her to live a normal life. She would met the reborn Vision, who forgave her for killing him. She joined the Fearsome Four during Fear Itself and took the Avengers side during AVX, being assigned to watch Jean Grey’s Academy. When the F4 went on a vacation in space, she joined the replacement team on Earth and would later be hire by and joined Luke Cage’s Mighty Avengers. After Secret War, she lead the all-Female team of A-force. The team later help attack Thanos, who blasted She-Hulk. She was left in a coma and when she awoke to learn of her cousin’s death at the hands of Hawkeye. The emotional trauma of this and Thanos’ blast cause her to transform into her grey form, now a much more savage version who referred to herself as Hulk. She would go on the run later to prevent people from getting hurt but would rejoin the Avengers and regained her green skin.

She-Hulk is an extremely popular character, with many fans and my personal favorite female of Marvel. She has had many figures over the year, but they have been spread apart by a good bit. Her first official Marvel Legends (designed by Toybiz, released by Hasbro) was part of the second Hasbro wave, the Blob wave. She also got a SDCC exclusive of her F4 costume with cloth goods for her Lawyer look. The last figure she got before the ML break (where Hasbro put the line on hiatus) was part of the Hulk Fin Fang Foom wave. It would be many year before she got another figure, this one being the Toy-R-Us A-Force box set version. Finally, with Hasbro launching a new F4 subline, she got a figure (her Hulk version) in the Super-Skrull wave.


Have

First Appearance Savage

Recommend Figure:  Hasbro Marvel Legends Hulk Fin Fang Foom wave Savage She-Hulk

  • Background:
    • When she first appeared and for a while after that, like her cousin, she would wear civies (usually a white shirt) that would get ripped every time she transformed. It would be like this for a while before she gained control over both of her forms.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:
    • There is only 2 reasons to get this, if you are a hardcore She-Hulk/Hulk wave that has to get every Hulk figure or get it MOC for the FFF part, which is expensive at the moment. It uses the wrong build (the SDCC box set Shanna), is way too short (yes she was short in her original appearances but not shorter the most) and is badly articulated.
  • Does it need a remake?:
    • YES! on the new Grey She-Hulk build.

Fantastic Four

Recommend Figure:  Hasbro SDCC Exclusive Marvel Legends She-Hulk

  • Background:
    • After the events on Battleworld, Thing decided to remain on the world and leave the F4. Wanting to fill his spot on the team with someone of strength, Reed asked She-Hulk to join the team. This would become the longest tenure of a member outside the original four.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:
    • If you have the older white and blue F4 from either Hasbro or Toybiz, then this would make a nice addition. It is also needed for She-Hulk collection but it is on an older and much more expensive mold.
  • Does it need a remake?:
    • Yes on the Grey She-Hulk mold.

Lawyer

Recommend Figure:  Hasbro Marvel Legends –

  • Background:
    • Jennifer is one of the few, if not only, hero that uses her superhero persona in both her civilian life and hero life. In this case, she would go to and argue in court in her She-Hulk form and would even win.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:
    • This is the same figure as F4 one above so the only way to get it is if someone is selling it in box or as a complete set. It is not needed for any collection unless you want a civilian display.
  • Does it need a remake?:
    • No. Not needed.

Disassembled

Recommend Figure:  Hasbro Marvel Legends Blob wave – She-Hulk

  • Background:
    • She-Hulk began wearing this during an Avengers event and during Disassemble but it was during her solo adventures where it became famous. This was during the time she was fired from the Avengers for partying to much and her lawyer firm, before being hire by Goodman, Lieber, Kurtzberg, & Holliway.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:
    • This is probably her most famous form, thanks to the many beautiful cover arts of her wearing it. Getting it might be hard now with it being from a older wave. Get this for your Hulk/She-Hulk and Avengers collection.
  • Does it need a remake?:
    • Yes. I want Hasbro to remake this again as it is my favourite costume for her.

A-force

Recommend Figure:  Hasbro Toys-R-Us Exclusive Marvel Legends A-force Box set She-Hulk with Singularity, Lady Sif, Elsa Bloodstone, Monica Rambaeu and Lady Loki.

  • Background:
    • During Secret Wars, She-Hulk was sent to a part of Battleworld where she was the leader of A-force which was made up of many female characters. After returning home with no memory of this, she encounter Singularity, who remember her time with the group. They would work together to form the 616 A-force team.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:
    • This is the most recent “classic” like costume at the moment but many people don’t like it as they don’t like the build. However, I highly recommend getting this set as it has some of the best and brand female figures.
  • Does it need a remake?:
    • No.

Hulk

Recommend Figure:  Hasbro Marvel Legends Fantastic Four Super-Skrull wave Hulk-

  • Background:
    • During the second Civil War, She-Hulk was blasted by Thanos which cause her to fall into a coma. When she woke up, she learnt of her cousin’s death. It is believed that this cause her to turn into her Grey Hulk form but a much more savage form similar to her cousin. This is the second time she has turned into her Grey form.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:
    • This is a fantastic figure and is highly recommended for any collection. I recommend getting it for you Hulk, She-Hulk and Avengers collection. I know some people don’t like that she is calling herself the Hulk, but it is not the first time she has done it.
  • Does it need a remake?:
    • No.

Needs

Below you will find a gallery of suits that still need to be made. I have included what I think are the possibilities of them being made. Note that these are my personal opinions and not fact. Please let me know if I have missed anything.

Note I only included costume that I think are important because she has had many short lived costume that lasted only one or 2 issues.
