Released onto Disney plus on August 18, 2022, “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” is the newest installment into the Marvel universe in the form of a nine-episode television show, currently on the sixth.

The show follows Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) as a defense attorney in Los Angeles, California trying to focus on her career. However, when her cousin Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) visits they get into a deadly car accident, forcing her to take a slight detour. When pulling Bruce out of the wreck Jennifer transforms into a Hulk. Putting her life on hold when her power is revealed to the world, with her law firm firing her in the process. Not for long though, a job offer for a new superhero attorney unit at a competitor law firm comes her way and seeing no other option for a career Jennifer takes it. As her job progresses new struggles come forward to face Jennifer, some dangerous villains, others in her personal life.

“She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” emphasizes the balance of personal life and the life of a hero. It does so through comedic tones, staging the show like a sitcom by having Jennifer making comments directly to the audience and having guest appearances on the show.

The comedic style of a sitcom causes the show to not have a strong central plot. The show has potential to be a good origin story for She-Hulk, however, it has not yet delivered. I plan on finishing the show to see if it gets better later.
