Woke She-Hulk HUMILIATED: 8 Reasons Why She-Hulk Was A Failure

She Hulk: Attorney At Law is the latest mini-series released by the MCU. After the first season of the show concluded on October 13, the overall reaction from the audience was not good. The series also failed to get enough viewership to land on Nielsen’s streaming charts, which is a first for a Marvel show.

She Hulk introduces a lot of new characters and gives Charlie Cox’s Daredevil a more prominent role in the MCU. So, why did the show fail? Here, we explore some possible reasons for the same.

Disclaimer: This article contains spoilers for the entirety of the show as well as the author’s opinions. Read at your own discretion.

Poor CGI, Daredevil’s depiction, and 6 other reasons that led to She Hulk’s failure1) The characters are extremely shallowvsJennifer Walters with Nikki Ramos & Pug (Image

She Hulk is full of characters that enjoy a lot of screen time. However, far and few of them are relatable or even likable. Jennifer Walters is a dedicated lawyer, but the people she ends up interacting with are just plain shallow.

The character of Titania, who is a villain on the show, seems like a stock character. Others such as Lulu (Patti Harrison), Jon Bass (Todd aka Hulk-King), and even Wong (Benedict Wong) have no arcs of their own. They seem to come and go as per the showmakers’ convenience.

This disengages the audience, as a result of which, they do not care about the characters, and by extension, about the show.

2) World-building is severely limitedShe-Hulk & Megan Thee Stallion (Image via Marvel)

The MCU is known for its stunning legacy. Spanning the course of over 15 years, there are many titles that build upon the events of their predecessors. While She Hulk follows the same principle, it also feels extremely limited.

For instance, when a group carrying Asgardian construction tools encounters her, it’s a call back to the fact that Asgard is indeed part of the main lore. However, it doesn’t serve to increase the scope of the story.

3) Jennifer does not go through any character developmentJennifer Walters (Image via Marvel)

Jennifer Walters gained her powers after she got into an accident alongside Bruce Banner. After some of Bruce’s blood gets transfused with her through a wound, she turns into the titular She Hulk. This was followed by Bruce taking her to his secret lab and helping her embrace the reality of being a superpowered individual.

However, Walters is constantly rude to The Hulk, and insults his legacy, which is filled with an incredible amount of struggle. She follows this pattern of behavior throughout the show, as a result of which, her character falls flat.

Even during the finale, when it’s time for her to face the reality of the situation, she breaks the fourth wall and demands the writers give her a happy ending. Without any real stakes, the story feels superficial.

4) Another case of bad Marvel CGIShe-Hulk in the mini-series (Image via Marvel)

The show is not entirely visually unimpressive. However, the appearance of the main character itself is quite sloppy. It is definitely a far cry from the glorious and surreal CGI depictions coming from the big MCU titles.

MCU’s CGI team is under a lot of pressure to deliver quantity over quality, which is referenced even in the show. This is an ongoing trend, as seen in Black Widow and Captain Marvel, and seems likely to continue.

5) Wasted potential of AbominationTim Roth as Emil Blonsky (Image via Marvel)

Tim Roth returned to the MCU as Abomination in Shang-Chi & The Legend of the Ten Rings. While he appeared as a fierce villain in The Incredible Hulk (2006), he now seems to have shed everything that made his character likable in the first place.
