According to the Comic Book, the story of Jennifer Walters turning into She-Hulk begins with her getting into an accident. To save her life, her cousin, The Incredible Hulk, helps out with a blood transfusion.

After the blood transfusion, Jennifer Walters turns into a much stronger and much greener lawyer.

This is not exactly how the story is shown in the series.

The Disney+ origin story:

We know that Bruce has gotten out of his Hulk persona as we can see him wearing a sling during the Shang-Chi post-credits scenes.

In the footage from the trailer, we see Jennifer Walters turning into She-Hulk. We also see that Bruce and Jennifer end up getting into a car accident. During the whole unpleasant situation, Jennifer Walters seems to get some of Bruce’s blood into her, and that makes her veins turn all green slowly. Eventually, she turns into the She-Hulk.

This is not similar to what is said about the origins of She-Hulk in the Comic book. In the book, the blood is transfused medically and scientifically, but here there is no explanation of how the blood gets inside her during the accident.

The whole change of origin might as well upset some fans. There seem to be a lot of questions regarding the whole scenario. The answer is only hidden in the series.

She-Hulk will be starring weekly from Wednesday, August 17 on Disney+.
