The most possible case might be the fans experiencing something new cultivated from Marvel Studios, and arguably something different as compared to other streaming shows that drop all their episodes at once. Because of this, critics are getting more chances to dig into every single detail of a particular episode and make comments.

The series offered the viewers some interesting cameos, and it has been making random conversations online among fans who seemingly love the concept as well as hate it or maybe something in between. According to some toxic fans, She-Hulk seems to be always shown in a very sexual way, while other women characters aren’t. But, everything is not negative, some fans have been defending She-Hulk from constant hate.

We can’t ignore that the character has always been like that in the comics. For example, if we look into one of the popular She-Hulk comics cover #40, it shows that Jennifer Walters is apparently totally naked and somehow covering herself with an oversized Comics Code Authority seal. And because the storyline manages to balance between turning the joke around on the readers, it never felt off or shaming the character.

The latest Disney+ show is going to explore this element of our new green character and people may not accept it without knowing her comics storyline. And also it’s a lot trickier to deal with a real-life woman playing the role just like in the comics, and there are a lot of things that can draw the reason for being uncomfortable because she is different. People may like it or not some fans hope Jennifer Walters embraces her boundless confidence and her powers.

Like her Marvel Comics counterpart, Tatiana Maslany’s character is comfortable with who she is. And she takes ownership of whatever critics mention in a negative tone. She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is supposed to be the next step in the evolution of a comic character and also the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law releases new episodes on Disney+ every Thursday.
