"The title She-Hulk evokes light-hearted stories about a Jennifer Walters who is at peace with herself and in full control of her powers. This isn’t that book. On the other hand, the title Hulk implies all of the baggage that comes with that comic’s 50+ year history—the ongoing battle with the monster within—and that’s why it’s more appropriate for this series. Jen went through major trauma in Civil War II, and Mariko and Nico’s story will deal with the fallout of that trauma—the anxiety and anger, sometimes self-destructive, that comes along with it. If there is light at the end of the tunnel, Jen is going to have to search hard for it, and she’s going to have to battle with some pretty big monsters—including the one within—to find herself again."

Cosmopolitan: When it was first announced that Jennifer Walters would be taking over the Hulk title, was there any backlash from fans?

Mariko Tamaki: I haven’t seen any. Some people are immediately like, “Yes, this is gonna be it! We’re gonna do this! I’m super excited!” and some people are like, “We’ll see.” I think there’s a trepidation when a new person comes in and starts writing for a character, which I accept. I accept that trepidation, I understand it, I have the same trepidation when I see someone new is writing a hero or doing something different with a hero, but I think mostly people are just excited to see more Hulk.

Editor Mark Paniccia: This is one of those headlines that people see and it really sparks their interest. They see that Jennifer Walters, who’s been known as the She-Hulk for all this time, is stepping into a Hulk role. It makes them curious. They want to see what this is all about. This is an opportunity to take a really cool, interesting look at a character and do something completely different than we’ve ever done with her before. Really at the heart of it, this is a Hulk story. It’s man versus monster, but in this case it’s woman versus monster.

Mariko Tamaki: What could be better than woman versus monster?

Entertainment Weekly: What made you decide to take her out of her Hulk form and show her human side?

Mariko Tamaki: When I was originally contacted by Marvel with this project, that was the way that they saw this starting. I really liked the idea of having somebody who has been comfortable in their skin, suddenly not [be]. Especially someone who’s been through a traumatic thing. All these things you take for granted about yourself mentally and physically that are no longer true. So I thought it was a really great starting point for a story about trauma, to put her in this position of literally holding this really big thing which is this thing that she is.

Editor Mark Paniccia: The other thing, too, is this is one of the results of Civil War II. These are all really heavy things that we wanted to explore in this character who’s been this fan-favorite superhero who’s going through this terrible trauma and tragedy. Part of Marvel’s stories are that world outside your window. There’s a lot of people that deal with this on a daily basis, and that’s all part of the human condition and in Marvel, the human condition is part of the superhuman condition.

Entertainment Weekly: What does Jen consider her relationship with her Hulk side? What does turning into the Hulk mean for her now?

Mariko Tamaki: In the past when she is the Hulk, there’s no part of her that goes away. She’s fully conscious when she’s in her Hulk form, and she’s worked as a lawyer in her Hulk form, and she’s gone about her life. So for now, it’s become this thing that used to make her feel powerful that has now become this more alien thing and become connected to trauma. So now, thinking about the things that have happened to her is connected to changing into the Hulk. Like Mark said, it’s a scary, terrible thing, because Hulk is who she is. In a way, it’s a metaphor for trying to suppress your feelings. You can try to ignore the feelings that you have, but ultimately, there’s no way around it. If you have had a traumatic event, that thing is just going to keep surfacing inside you until you face it. Right now, at the beginning of the story, Jen is in a place where as much as it feels horrible and unnatural, she’s trying to be just in her human form. But it is a part of her, and to ignore all this Hulk stuff is to ignore the past, and you can’t really do that.

Editor Mark Paniccia: In many ways, this is a classic Hulk story. Woman versus monster.

Mariko Tamaki: All stories are woman versus monster.

"For most readers over the decades, “Thunderbolt” Ross has been the preeminent figure representing the military, and always holding that military role in opposition to super-powered people. But from years of being so close to the fire in essence, he’s been burned–he’s become the thing he fought for so long. And he completely did it to himself, he can’t blame anyone else. It leaves him in a very interesting place for a character.

He’s reached the end of one life and is beginning another, and though we may resent him for a lot of reasons, we can empathize with him at the same time. And he was never evil, just wrong headed. Seeing the world through the eyes of being a Hulk is a big transformation beyond being able to punch through a mountain. I think readers will see some of their friends and family and even themselves in Ross.

We'll get back Loeb's run later, but here's what came after it and I think we'll all agree, this is sooo much better.
