After the first official trailer of the show, it might really be uneasy being green because a new character gets into the said color with She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, having Jennifer Walters transform from a lawyer to the titular hero and yes, she is a relative of Bruce Banner so it’s not unusual. Here is who she is and how they are related to each other.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law: Who is Jennifer Walters?
In the trailer of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, played by Tatiana Maslany, Jennifer Walters is introduced as a lawyer with great friends, a job that has a lot of demands and stated in the clip is that she will be the new face of the superhuman law division which is presumed to be the attorneys of the heroes because, you know, they can face legal charges, too, and are really prone to it especially with damage to property.
Hulk also made an appearance in the clip where Jennifer said that her family is frustrating. He says Jennifer didn’t ask to be like that, pertaining to being green, but still, they have to prepare her for it because it’s already there. Hilariously, Banner said that the transformation triggers are fear and anger, and Jennifer pointed out that such is the baseline for women’s existence.
In what seems to be a chamber to help Jennifer control her powers, Hulk was successful in drawing out She-Hulk and she’s mad! No offense but who wouldn't be mad with the CGI she has on her? While Jennifer just wants to be normal, it seems like things are never going back the same way. She doesn’t want to be an avenger, though, recognizing that as for billionaires and narcissists who are orphaned.
In the comics, Jennifer Walters is pretty much the same, a lawyer who became exposed to the blood of Hulk because of her need of a transfusion. Seems like being intelligent runs in their family because she’s a bright woman who, even in the She-Hulk form, retains all her knowledge and personality.
How is She-Hulk Related to Bruce Banner?
The series and the comics are the same when it comes to Jennifer Walter’s relationship to Bruce Banner. She-Hulk is the cousin of Bruce Banner. It is no question that her mind is brilliant even if they do not share the same field of expertise because, hey, it runs in the blood.
Also running in her blood are gamma-irradiated blood which Bruce Banner transfused to her after she was shot and injured by a mob. Possibly the same reason why Banner mentioned that she didn’t ask for that, the blood transfusion is possibly an emergency where only Banner is the closest relative she has near.
