This is a rant about why people aren’t reading enough Sensational She-Hulk?!
John Byrne’s “The Sensational She-Hulk,” is a breath of fresh air, recycled from 1989.
She-Hulk has broken the infamous 4th wall, which is being aware of her fictional “situation.” From death threats to the illustrator, to not agreeing with the story line, she will announce her distaste. Proud, loud, and green, she’s the Sensation She-Hulk.
Her massive size and the pigment of her skin bring out her confidence, and it continuously grows. Her flirtatious and playful nature picks up men from their feet, quite literally in many cases.
John Byrne brings out her character from the Savage She-Hulk to the renewed Sensational. Her innocent years have been passed her, as the self-acceptance had quickly developed. He ran with the material, and made it engaging and hilarious. Though the male gaze has landed on her with the half-naked covers to provoke sales, but John made it clear that was, indeed, what he was trying to do. She-Hulk knew, as a result of her being uncomfortable on a couple pages and covers.
She got her revenge…
Thanks for reading!

Hey there...just wanted to say that there's nothing wrong with how you're reading the books, and let you know that those that are telling you otherwise and spoiling the books for you are..well, immature, and a product of fanatical shipperism that runs rampant around here. View the dynamics as you see them, and don't let a bunch of defensive shippers tell you otherwise. :) Some of what they told you is purely subjective, btw, and that's the point. No surprise there.
Thank you, anon!! I absolutely appreciate the message! We all have our perceptions of character relationships, as you’ve said, and it’s also quite shitty for some of the folks replying to spoil future scenes. Again, thank you for understanding. :)
There is quite a lot going on with Brienne and Jaime this season thus far, and I’ve read of others shipping them and saying they are the ultimate pair.
I absolutely disagree. As a character, Jaime is excellently deceiving and does add to the show. Brienne, on the contrary, is a strong,…
I don’t see Jaime as being a sexist character. And I think many people “ship” Jaime and Brienne kind of for the reasons you gave. Brienne is a strong person, and so is Jaime, although, in the words of Axl Rose, “everybody needs somebody”.
Come to think of it, if Brienne were to be in Jaimes situation with the Mad King, I believe she would have killed Aerys way before Jaime did. That’s what makes them such interesting characters to “ship”. They are the physical embodiments of human beings themselves. One is portrayed as being this “evil, sexist person who throws children from windows”, the other a valiant knight who is what Jaime should be, yet, both characters I believe, would come to the same conclusions if their scenarios were switched. They are what every human on this earth is. Not absolutely good, but not absolutely bad. Grey characters.
This is longer than I meant it to be ha
Thank you for the reply. Of course, with time I’ll learn more of their relationship to each other and their individual relationships with other characters. I appreciate the well thought out response!
