SPOILERS FOR SHE-HULK EPISODE 7 BELOW, IF YOU HAVE NOT WATCHED EPISODE 7 SAVE THIS POST AND COME BACK LATER!
Episode 7 proved several fans right, and disappointed a lot of others – Jen’s new crush, Josh, is working with Intelligencia and never actually liked Jen at all – he was using her romantic attraction to him to get information on her.
And, sadly, this is a common theme for Jennifer Walters, in the show and in comics, so today I thought I’d give you a quick rundown of some of Jen’s most famous flings in Marvel Comics.
Yes, the mutant villain Juggernaut has had a fling with She-Hulk! It was in the 2000s, and was a heavily featured joke throughout the Dan Slott She-Hulk run, where it was eventually revealed that it wasn’t our Jennifer Walters who slept with him – it was an alternate universe version of her!
You know the guy Zeus is sending to kill Thor at the end of Love And Thunder? That’s Hercules, and he has also had a fling with She-Hulk in the comics. Hercules is generally a good guy in the comics, and ever since Jennifer worked with him on an Avengers team, she has had a crush on him. They eventually did become an item, after she spent years fantasising about him, but Jennifer left him when she realised that he was sexist and didn’t like women on the battlefield, let alone women who were as strong as him.
We all knew Tony, a famous womaniser, was going to be on the list, didn’t we? While Jen and Tony don’t always get along, what with Tony’s need to control Hulk‘s and their powers, and his dislike of Jen acting without thinking things through, (even though he does the exact same thing), the two have had an on again, off again, relationship over the years.
John Jameson III
If that name sounds reasonably familiar, it’s because John is the son of J Jonah Jameson – the reporter who is hellbent on proving that Spider-Man is a menace to society! John himself is actually a superhero, in the sense that he is actually a werewolf, transformed by rocks he found on the moon (comics are weird, I find it helps to just go with it!). The two started dating during the first Civil War event, and while had a lot of problems (John wasn’t entirely fond of Jen being She-Hulk all the time) eventually married, though it was annulled when they realised that Eros, aka Starfox, had influenced the two with his powers.
Wyatt isn’t a superhero, in the sense that doesn’t have any powers, but he is friends with the Fantastic Four – specifically, he was the roommate of Johnny Storm, aka The Human Torch. When Jen stepped in to replace The Thing for a while in the Fantastic Four, she and Wyatt hit it off, and the two became a couple, with Wyatt helping Jen adjust to her normal and superhero lives. The two even became engaged in the 80’s, but Jen never made it down the aisle, wanting to focus on being a superhero. The two have remained friends though, and use each other’s time together as a guide to their future romantic relationships.
And that’s some of She-Hulk’s most famous flings! Which one is your favourite, is there any you want to know more about? Let me know in the comments!
