Hulk #1

Civil War II (Marvel's latest big event which I gave up on fairly early on) has left Jennifer Walters a changed woman. Unlike Bruce Banner, Jen was always able to control enhanced abilities turning them into an asset rather than a curse. This was fruitful in the courtroom as well as in some super-villain's secret lair. It seems times have changed.

Trying to get her life back on track, Jen takes a new job at her old law firm and settles in for the new normal. What she's keeping from the world, however, is that things are no longer normal (or whatever her old status quo used to be). The rage inside her is building and it looks like She-Hulk as we knew her may be gone.

I've always liked She-Hulk. It's an interesting twists on events turning She-Hulk into Marvel's new Hulk. As someone who has always been able to control her transformation and powers this new journey is likely going to be a rocky road for her. Still, I hope the more lighthearted version of the character isn't lost for good. Worth a look.
