So, it’s a new year… which must mean new beginnings, right? YES. Both Comic Giants Marvel and DC have some bran spanking new titles up their sleeves… okay not brand spanking new, it’s characters we have been before, but they are getting their own new line of comics. Yay! And guess what? They are ladies! Even better… We are going to count down our faves, let’s start with the greenest.
Out: February 12th, 2014
She-Hulk is back as part of the Marvel NOW! initiative, with her own brand new reboot. Kinda like the New 52 I guess… Marvel NOW! marks the end of the Avengers vs X-Men shizz, and will also reboot some of the old characters, giving them whole new titles. No doubt this will make Marvel comics more accessible to younger fans, especially those being introduced to the universe by the Avengers films. It’s a pretty cool idea. It is sometimes hard to get into a comic without having a prior knowledge of the entire god-knows-how-many years history.
Anyway, She-Hulk is getting her own comic and hopefully it’s gonna rock. We at Heroine Junkies are just super excited that the female characters are being revamped, and therefore maybe more young girls can pick up issue no 1 and get addicted to the Marvel heroines. (Elektra, Ms Marvel and Black Widow are also getting their own brand new series’, so hopefully this will be a good year for the heroines of Marvel… more on that soon)
She-Hulk is a perfect heroine for young ladies. I mean first off, she makes it OK to be angry. She is entirely green, clearly holding a finger up to standards of beauty (did I mention green is my favourite colour?). And, she is a kick ass lawyer to boot. So, she is pretty in green, feisty, strong and smart? How is THAT for a hero. Stuff your pink princesses, Disney.
To tickle your taste buds in the run-up to She-Hulk #1, I am going to share with you a very exclusive recipe for the very illusive cocktail, She-Hulk… it’s so illusive that only 4 people know of it’s existence. Yes, okay, my friends and I devised it in high school, but trust me, it’s AMAZING:
