Introduction

Jennifer Walters is a normal lawyer who just wants to live a normal life. However, when she was on a car trip with her cousin, Bruce Banner, they get into a freak accident and Jennifer is exposed to Bruce’s blood. The exposure to the gamma-radiated blood has turned Jennifer into a hulk just like Bruce. However, Jennifer’s blood has something special that makes her able to control her hulk self just like she normally acts. This surprises Bruce, also called Smart Hulk at this point. Smart Hulk wants to teach She-Hulk, the name that Jennifer Walters is nicknamed, how to become a superhero.

Jennifer is not really interested in becoming a superhero, but Jennifer agrees to learn the basics from Bruce. After she completes her quick training, she rushes home to continue to pursue her old life. However, she does not realize what has changed and now she has to balance a normal life and a life as a superhero.

Episode 1: A Normal Amount of Rage

In this episode we learn about She-Hulk’s origin story and how she came to be. We also see Bruce try to train her about being a superhero. We also find out a few more secrets about Bruce and Tony’s relationship when Tony was alive. Most of what happened in this episode is explained in the introduction above.

We see a few violent scenes in this episode. We see Jennifer and Bruce bleeding which causes Jennifer to have a reaction to his blood. We also see a few other scenes in which Jennifer turns into She-Hulk and begins to terrorize people.

We see a few sexual references in this episode. We see some men catcall Jennifer and try to grab her. We also see Jennifer beat up after the car wreck and other women see her and say, “he does not deserve you.” However, another woman pipes in, “or her, or them,” this was not necessary whatsoever. We also hear about Jennifer being obsessed with Steve Rogers being a virgin. She comments on his “a–” and says its a shame he never experienced sex. However, Bruce says that he isn’t a virgin and he lost his virginity on a USA tour. In my personal opinion, Cap did not do this, Bruce just made it up to get Jennifer off his back off of him. Because personally I do not see Steve Rogers as righteous as he is doing this. This is my personal opinion but I was not happy with this bit.

We see Smart Hulk and She-Hulk drinking a lot of alcohol since Hulk’s don’t get drunk. However the next day Jennifer has a serious hangover. They both have a burping competition while they drink.

The language in this episode is pretty intense. We hear a few uses of “sh–“, “a–“, “d-m-“, and the Lord’s name. We hear an incomplete use of the f bomb in the post credit scene (the same scene that talks about Steve Rogers that I would just skip in my opinion).

This episode did a good job at explaining the responsibility that Jennifer has just been given unexpectedly. While there are some good parts in this episode, the sexual content especially was not necessary in this episode. What do you think of this episode? Let us know in the comments!

Episode 2: Superhuman Law

In this episode we pick up off where we left Jennifer Walters. Despite now having the powers of the Hulk, she continues to try to live a normal life as a lawyer. However, after a villain attacks a group of people in a courtroom it is up to She-Hulk to save the people. She-Hulk is able to protect everyone. However, since she saved all the jury’s lives were saved by her, that puts them in her favor and the case has to be thrown out. Therefore, Jennifer Walters is fired from her job.

Jennifer tries to find another job, and eventually she crosses a man who is trying to create a law division exclusively for superheroes. And this man wants the She-Hulk to be the face of the division. Jennifer accepts and then finds out that her first case is Emil Blonsky, also better known as the Abomination. Watch She-Hulk/Jennifer Walters tackle this case to bring Abomination to justice.

This film doesn’t have too much violent content. We see some punches and some guns. None are really fired however. This episode is very light on violence.

There is some sexual content in this episode. We see that on Jennifer’s phone she has a picture of Captain America’s butt (clothed) on her phone background. This is pretty much all the sexual content I noticed in this episode.

We see one scene in which there are a lot of people drinking. She-Hulk is seen drinking but when asked to turn back to human form she gets really drunk and we see this onscreen.

We also hear a few uses of hell, “d-m-,” “sh–,” and the Lord’s name in vain. We also hear a few other namecalls.

In the end, this episode felt like a filler episode to help us understand where the story is going. While there were some crucial parts, not much actually happened in this episode which was kind of disappointing. I hope the next few episodes are longer so we can get more content to watch. What did you think of the episode? Let us know in the comments!

Episode 3: The People VS. Emil Blonsky

In this episode Jennifer Walters has to take the case of Emil Blonsky’s, aka Abomination, parole case. However,  at the end of the last episode, Abomination escapes prison.  However, Jennifer finds that he returned to his cell.

It turns out that the Sorcerer Supreme, Wong, broke Abomination out. Wong testifies before court and explains his actions and Emil is set free from prison on some conditions. She-Hulk becomes a star and begins to build an image for herself despite Jennifer’s desire to not be a big deal.

In the meantime, Jennifer’s old coworker gets in a scam with a shape-shifting alien from New Asgard pretending to be Megan Thee Stallion, and Jennifer must testify on the case.

The violence in this episode is very minimal. We see one scene in which She-Hulk takes on a gang of men, but she just throws them around. Nothing much is seen.

The sexual content in this episode is similar to other episodes in this series. We hear some speculating that She-Hulk is carrying Abomination’s baby. We also here about Emil having a lot of soul mates that are his better 1/8ths. We see a twerking scene in the post credit scene.

We see one scene where someone is drinking an unknown drink.

There is a few uses of the Lords name and one use of the d word, and maybe one or two other words. Not a lot of language in this episode thankfully.

I am glad that this episode showed that bad guys can turn good and be given a second chance(saying that Emil Blonsky truly has changed). This is a good lesson to show. In one point the show showed people complaining about female superheroes, while the show clearly wants her to be the star and show how strong she is. Therefore, I do get a sense of feminism in this series but not too much just yet. What did you think of this episode?  Let me know in the comments!
