‘She/ Hulk’ Episode 1 REVIEW
After a long wait, the newest Marvel hero has finally arrived, and trust us when we say you are absolutely going to love her; this is our review of the hilariously charming She/ Hulk episode 1
There was a good amount of anticipation surrounding the Marvel Cinematic Universe debut of Jennifer Walters, with the character firmly being one of the most interesting comic book creations of all time, and seeking to offer the MCU something completely different.
One episode in, and shades of what makes her so unique are already starting to shine through, and giving life to a hero that is primed to become one of the most beloved that the MCU can offer.
There are two things that immediately stand out in She/ Hulk episode 1, first is one of the character’s most interesting and defining traits; her ability to break the fourth wall, a tactic used sparingly in the initial entry by director Kat Coiro, but something bound to be a major facet as the series continues.
Second is the clear charisma, presence, and charm of the series lead, Tatiana Maslany, who quickly establishes herself in the opening moments, and doesn’t let up in endearing the viewer to her phenomenal character, and brilliant comedic talents.
The episode does brilliantly in using Jennifer Walters’ connection to Bruce Banner to first introduce us to the character; as the initial episodes focus on teaching her how to be a Hulk, also uses an MCU character fan adore to bring this new hero to our forefront.
The dynamic between the two heroes is brilliant, and what works phenomenally about the series is how it uses Bruce Banner; this isn’t just an appearance that helps to build up Jennifer Walters as the heir apparent, but an entry that actively builds on the lore of Banner in equal measure.
There is no denying that She/ Hulk is already poised to be a charming, hilarious, and very creative exploration of a hero that feels destined to become a fan favorite within the MCU fandom.
