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.

1,000 Matches In 2015 - Match 59:
Hulk Hogan Vs. The Great Muta
NJPW Wrestling Dontaku [May 3rd, 1993]

The only thing this video is missing is the infamous post-match interview, where Hogan claims that what he does in the WWF is bullshit, and that he wants the NJPW title (controversial, considering Hogan was the WWF Heavyweight Champion at the time of this match).

What this match does for Hulk Hogan does more for him as a wrestler than the previous 8 years had done for him in the USA. It proves that Hulk Hogan, though an amazing entertainer, is an actual professional wrestler. When he steps into the ring with guys like Andre and Warrior, he does what keeps the fans in America happy. When stepping into the ring with a mat technician like The Great Muta, he steps his game up and unleashes hell, unlike anything anyone had seen from Hogan before. If you’re a fan of pro wrestling and need any belief in Hogan, watch this match. I promise, you will be shocked.
