‘Sensing a Pattern, It’s Called Misogyny’: Internet Trolls Marvel Fans After They Call She-Hulk ‘Anti-Men’, Claim Same Sexists Attacked Ms. Marvel, Mighty Thor

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law has been dealing with the rough debut from the very beginning. And still, it has been receiving mixed comments regarding both negative and positive public opinions. Some people pointed out what some called ‘bad CGI’ at the first and now the show is getting attacked by some sexists.

These problems not only caused many to become a little hesitant to watch the show but also some people blasted on Twitter calling out the attackers. Surely the sexist voices out there are trying to bring down the series but some genuine fans across the world will keep pushing the show forward and kick out the toxicity away.

Some critics can’t get the fact that She-Hulk is a vastly different character and can’t be compared with the Hulk. The only things She-Hulk and Hulk have in common are green skin, intelligence, super strength, and gamma radiation. And this is not the first time, with every female debut some sort of backlash always happened. Earlier, Natalie Portman’s ‘female Thor’ was a disaster when the news surfaced on social media. Fans were so quick to condemn their negative opinions about the character and she got criticized for not being ‘swole’ enough and ‘too petite’. The same case happened with the debut of Ms. Marvel.

Early reactions show how the representation of female characters can be also hard for movie-makers when the established audience or fans only prefers young, white, cisgender, and male superheroes.

Some point of opinion also suggests that the characters are being hijacked. For example, Thor was shown unworthy and his power and name were replaced by a female character. They say the “hijacking of famous male characters with female characters is not uncommon.” And now She-Hulk will also take a long time to develop. However, it doesn’t matter that the number of women superheroes and content is growing. But, offering female characters such roles that could challenge the defining masculinity of the established genre is still a problem for some people.
