Series Review: She Hulk, Disney Plus, Directed by: Cat Quiro, Eno Valia, 2022

Marvel continues to expand their never-ending universe, with comic stars and comic book stars galore. And now an original step, a female version of the green giant who is not a lawyer but a scientist. The truth is that She Hulk is an old version that is backed by a successful comic that has been running for quite a few years.

Jennifer Walters ( Tatiana Maslany) is the cousin of Bruce Banner the Green Giant, they are traveling together and a huge spaceship suddenly appears and leads to an accident. Their blood mixes and she became a giantess. She doesn't really want it, but no one really asks her. She must manage between her career, fighting crime and of course finding guys. But she's a talented girl, so there's really nothing to worry about.

It's supposed to be a comedy, but it's not funny. There are occasional reasonable jokes, but that's why you'll see it. The action sequences are good, the main character is quite tolerable and relative to other things that Marvel does, it's not bad at all. It also has a very strong characteristic of the Marvel after credits universe, there is a lot of desire to please but also great fun.

She brings us into the day-to-day life of a superhero and does it in a non-fussy way at all. There's a lot of fun and attention to detail here, including an overt feminism that can be a bit of a hassle, but is called for in the universes that Disney creates. There aren't many bad things to say about the series, even though it's not really a must-watch.

This isn't great elite TV, but there is a stop to the deterioration in the quality of Marvel's content. All in all, it's fun TV to watch if you don't have too high expectations, the superhero genre is probably going to be with us for a long time, so it's better to enjoy and join the herd.
