Checking out characters created by Stan Lee.
For every Spider-Man there are 30 Fancy Dans. Fancy Dan's powers and abilities: judo and karate. Also a skilled marksman. Whoa. What was he smoking when they came up with that one?
Haha. Asbestos Man. Developed cancer and died. That's the obvious route. What if he just decided to give up a life of super villiany and open up a B&B? Or how about he dies in a traffic accident? Everything doesn't have to be ironic and/or larger than life.
She-Hulk. What a joke. "What if the Incredible Hulk had tits?" That must have taken about ten seconds to brainstorm.
And she's not even muscular. Here's her first appearance:
No muscle definition whatsoever. Indeed, she's slim. And that cover is not to scale. She's 6'7" so tall but not monstrous.
Here's a more recent one from 2004:
Some biceps but nothing that a normal human woman can't achieve with regular gym attendance. No muscle definition anywhere else. But big tits.
You can search Google images yourself. In some of them she's quite muscular but in the overwhelming majority of them she's not.
I'd be interested to see some sort of official model.
Compare this to the Incredible Hulk. He's enormous. No human, no matter how many steroids they take, can ever possibly reach his level of musculature. He has superhuman strength as is fitting for super-heroes.
But She-Hulk...there are plenty of female body builders today who are bigger than she is. And I believe most female body builders today also get huge breast implants.
It's just lame prepubescent masturbatory material. If she has the same afflication that ails the Incredible Hulk, she'd be enormous. Not as big as the Hulk but certainly must bigger than any human female.
Or let's say she got some sort of lesser dose of radiation of whatever it is that makes the Hulk get huge. Fine. Then she's not a super-heroine. She's just a slim green woman with big tits. Nothing about her physique suggests that she has super-human strength.
