More She-Hulk smashing, less talking.

We catch up with our favorite gamma-powered lawyer as she’s about to face off with a most terrifying foe, the employee performance review. Confident in her skills as a lawyer, and the fact that she’s freaking She Hulk, Jennifer Walters fearlessly enters the conference room only to leave after she breaks a fifty thousand dollar solid teak table in half. Needless to say, the review didn’t go as well she hoped. Newly unemployed, and nursing her wounded pride over a bottle of whiskey, Jennifer meets a down on her luck widow, and after hearing her story takes on a case against her friend and fellow Avenger, Tony Stark.

Now, I’d like to blame it on my short attention span or violent nature, but I feel like this comic was seriously lacking in the butt kicking department. It seems like this comic was more about Jennifer Walters than She-Hulk, which is fine for most people. A comic that’s more about the person behind the hero is a popular concept. I just personally would have like to actually see She-Hulk smash some Stark Industry robots instead of just cutting to the next scene. Something about seeing a large green woman punching straight through a robot torso makes me happy.

As I am a big fan of the female solo comic series I’m willing to see how this plays out, even though I was a little disappointed with the debut. I’m hoping the story picks up a bit in the action department in future issues as the writing and art were really well done. Well, the legal jargon made my eyes cross a few times but it seemed to be very well written jargon.
