A few pages from the first issue of the new She-Hulk series, which debuted this week...

I really liked this issue.
"Ninety percent of lawyering is conversations"
"What's the other ten percent?"
"Mostly beating up robots, apparently"

I also love that bit where Legal outlines the complexity of the legal situation here, including the line "when Stark ceased being dead" to make sure you know this is a comic book world.

The faces still look weird to me, bu I'm on for another issue at least.

As far as the faces are concerned, does anyone else look at Jen's face in that last panel and feel like that dazed stare comes from boring a tunnel through solid rock by headbutting? It's also taking a little getting used to everyone's hyper-pronounced cheekbones.

Totally digging the cover art, though. A shame the interior art doesn't look a little more like that.

"Once he ceased being dead." Comics, everyone.

(Also, it bugs the hell out of me that James Rhodes is called "James Rhodey." The editor should have caught that.)

I enjoyed the HELL out of this comic.

I still find it fascinating we're at a point where Iron Man is a character who cameos in new books to help their sales. Heck, not even Iron Man, just Tony Stark. What a difference a movie or four can make.

Yeah, it used to be that when Marvel wanted to get a new series started, they'd have Spider-Man make a cameo, by this point they've ruined him so much, that they'll just go with anyone else.

Why would a career criminal suddenly go pitch an idea for a corporation? Seems more likely that it was a scheme that got shelved due to a slight case of death, to me.

Oh, and Tony would have virtual twins as his secretary.

Not the first time Harrow did corporate work, actually. He did some stuff for Roxxon as well. I suspect it wasn't well known at the time that Tony Stark owned Accutech.

If corporations are now legally persons, then Roxxon is also a supervillain. Working with them is more like doing a contract for Hydra, or A.I.M. rather than actual, legal, corporate R&D.

So... What happened to Jen on the way to see Tony?

Robots. Once she became an "enemy" of Stark's business, the robots were programmed to keep her off the premises. Jen did not appreciate that.

Couldn't she just leave the building and come back saying she's on Avengers business?

She never expected to be treated differently because she was a lawyer, but I can see her determined to see it through to the bitter end.

Plus, would that count against her as false representation of her status at the time as a duly qualified attorney serving legal papers or something?

In that last panel Jen looks...I'm not sure what the opposite of 'cross-eyed' is, but yeah. That.

I think the term is wall-eyed, at least in the common parlance, I'm sure there's a more tasteful name for it.

Actually, I'd say she look hyperthyroidal.

Okay, I've officially watched too much Avengers: Earth's mightiest heroes. Cause I read everything Tony says in his voice from that show.

Wait, that's a good thing, nevermind.

Wasn't Jen's client also in Daredevil 10.1, trying to hire Matt to take the case?

... and Tony was afraid to help Peter's AUnt May when she was shot because he was afraid to be affiliated with a criminal... whose basic crime was just being a flip-floper?

Is the moral of the story that American corporations are run by amazing patrician figures we should all trust and look up to?

I think the moral of the story is that corporations are soulless automatons that will instinctively seek to fuck you over even if you happen to be best buds with their CEO.

and like Jen said, he is NOT like all the OTHER CEO's

yes, he has automated his life too much. But at his heart (remember there is proof he has one:) he is a good man.... if ego centric

I really liked this story, and I'm thrilled that She-Hulk is back in her own series, and back where she belongs, practicing superhuman law. That being said, why didn't she just motion for sanctions under FRCP 11(c)(2) when Stark's lawyers started filing all those obviously obstructive motions?
