Stan Lee and John Buscema created Jennifer Walters / She-Hulk for Marvel. She is a cousin of Bruce Banner and a lawyer by profession. After an injury, the character received an emergency blood transfusion from Banner. She then acquires the power, becoming a strong, big, greener version of herself. But Walters is able to retain her intelligence, personality, and control. However, she is still vulnerable to outbursts of temper. This turns her much stronger if enraged. She-Hulk debuted in Marvel Comics with The Savage She-Hulk #1 in 1980.
