I love how so many people have been confused and amused by that guy in the Sochi Olympics who was at the top of the slopestyle track during the men’s competition just casually knitting away
and it turned out to be…
John Byrne’s “The Sensational She-Hulk,” is a breath of fresh air, recycled from 1989.
She-Hulk has broken the infamous 4th wall, which is being aware of her fictional “situation.” From death threats to the illustrator, to not agreeing with the story line, she will announce her distaste. Proud, loud, and green, she’s the Sensation She-Hulk.
Her massive size and the pigment of her skin bring out her confidence, and it continuously grows. Her flirtatious and playful nature picks up men from their feet, quite literally in many cases.
John Byrne brings out her character from the Savage She-Hulk to the renewed Sensational. Her innocent years have been passed her, as the self-acceptance had quickly developed. He ran with the material, and made it engaging and hilarious. Though the male gaze has landed on her with the half-naked covers to provoke sales, but John made it clear that was, indeed, what he was trying to do. She-Hulk knew, as a result of her being uncomfortable on a couple pages and covers.
She got her revenge…
