What's your favorite historical time period?

When it comes to economic history, it’s 1850 to roughly 1940. A ton of important stuff happens then which tells us a lot about what our economy is going through today.

Military history is the late cold war transitioning into the early global war on terror. Essentially 1980-2010. A huge advancement in military tech happened as well as a major shift in tactics due to the threat of non-state terror and asymmetrical warfare.


FASHION: 16-year-old Dresses As Every Culture & Counterculture of the Last 100 Years

Have you ever wondered what you might have looked like as a hippie in the 70s or as a flapper in the roaring 20s?

16-year-old Ohio State University student Annalisa Hartlaub has, which is why she created a series of photos that send her back in time to flaunt some of the most notable fashions of the last century.

“You spent months listening to your old songs, and for 24 Karat Gold’s art, looking at photos of yourself as far back as your 20s. What did you learn about your life? 

 Part of me is feeling extremely old now, and part of me is feeling extremely young. Because I look at these pictures and realize I worried about things that I shouldn’t have been worrying about. Like the fact that I had little marionette lines around my mouth when I was 29, and I was complaining about them. I wouldn’t go out to the beach without a sarong from my neck to my ankles. Now I see a picture of myself from that era in a bikini and I’m like, “You looked great. And you missed out on a lot of fun vacations, because you were so sure that you were fat.” 

 So the moral is, spend more time in a bikini? 

 Spend more time in a bikini! All the little girls in their 20s, they’re terrified of looking like they’re not 16. And I’m like, “Oh, just get ready for what’s to come.” It’s going to be way harder for them. The world has become a much more vain place.”

This Generation: *helps the legalization LGBTQIA+ marriage, actually gives a shit about modern racism instead of brushing it under the rug, accepts each other regardless of gender identity, sexuality, religion, etc., promotes body positivity more than ever before, advocates for the rights of women, and is considered to be way more liberal than previous generations*

Last Generation: ugh, this generation is so shallow! Kids these days don’t care about anyone but themselves and their phones! They play on their devices all day without making any difference in the world! So lazy and selfish!

Still Can't Get Enough She-Hulk? Here Are Some Hidden Gems

Let me tell you about some of the BEST She-Hulk stories not already mentioned in my Brief History of the Lady Liberators and She-Hulk trades recommendations.

This is by no means a complete list of She-Hulk appearances, just my favorites. Got your own favorites? Let me know!

Marvel Team-Up #107 (1981) — A team-up with Spider-Man from the “Savage She-Hulk” days. What makes the story so great is the villainess — MAN KILLER, a fierce misandrist who wants to smash male-dominated society!

Spidey Super Stories #50 (1981) — Okay, so it’s a non-canonical children’s comic. But it has Jen defending the Rhino in court only to end up fighting him on the streets, and proving herself WAY stronger than Spidey every step of the way. Classic fun.

Avengers #221-222 (1981) — Her whole time in the Avengers is full of fantastic character moments, but her biggest splash is her first recruitment to the team.

Marvel Two-In-One #88 (1982) — She-Hulk’s first meeting with the Thing! A really, really fun story in which She-Hulk’s hard-charging, sexually confident, hard-drinking, adrenaline-loving ways make Ben Grimm very uncomfortable. If you want She-Hulk speeding recklessly in a pink Cadillac, drinking hard liquor, and generally forcing the rest of the world to DEAL WITH IT, this is the one.

Marvel Graphic Novel #17: Revenge of the Living Monolith (1985) — A straight-up classic fun superhero team-up. The main heroes are Captain America, She-Hulk, and Spider-Man. Plus the cover features the Living Monolith destroying the World Trade Center, so there’s that.

Fantastic Four #275 (1985) — Also highlighted in my recommended trades. She-Hulk and Wyatt Wingfoot track down a pornographer who took nude photos of Jen sunbathing. Great single-issue adventure by John Byrne.

Fantastic Four #321 (1988) — I hesitated to include this one mainly because the entire concept of Sharon Ventura as Ms. Marvel/“She-Thing” is so godawful I’d like to forget it. But if we’re focusing on She-Hulk here, this is a nice combination of a super-slugfest that also showcases Jen’s ability to talk things out. Anyway, She-Hulk vs. She-Thing just had to happen, didn’t it?

Solo Avengers #14 (1989) — She-Hulk is arguing the biggest case of her legal career at the U.S. Supreme Court! But her arguments are repeatedly interrupted by Titania. A classic story by Chris Claremont & Alan Davis.

She-Hulk: Sensational #1 (one-shot) (2010) — A special published to celebrate Shulkie’s 30th anniversary, with three fun stories. Includes a Christmas Carol-inspired story in which She-Hulk meets Stan Lee; and a fun team-up story with Ms. Marvel and Spider-Woman.

Avenging Spider-Man #7 (2012) — She-Hulk & Spider-Man team up to take on a mysterious force that seems to be coming from an Egyptian exhibit at the museum. Featuring lots of cats. A fun tale by Kathryn & Stuart Immonen.

FF #4 (2013) — The Moloids enlist aspiring young supervillain Bentley-23 to help them disrupt She-Hulk’s date with Wyatt Wingfoot! Lots of fun. She-Hulk was a member of the FF throughout Fraction & Allred’s all-too-brief 16 issues of this series, but this is the only one where Shulkie is central to the plot.
