Jen turned nasty


I seem to remember the Sensational She-Hulk by Byrne and the Shulky of the 90s animated series were both nice, though full of themselves.

I wonder why the writers of this one thought it an improvement for her to be abrasive and aggressive.

Seems they had to have a responsible mother-hen figure for the other hulks who are usually quite juvenile.

"what is your major malfunction numbnuts?!!

There isn't a single episode now where she isn't violent towards her male teammates and isn't insulting but the first time anyone says anything back she hits him.

No matter how angry red gets he always seems to remain in enough control not to hit her.
Surprising for a hot head.

Even when fighting robot versions of themselves hers was the one that's want hit. When changing between red and her it's only when it's on red do they punch it.

Part of the misguided female empowerment crap that is poorly shoehorned into every single show but done so badly it is more sexist that the supposed "positive" message it's supposed to represent.
Ever wonder why you never see such a badly shoehorned male empowerment message?
Because that would be called degrading to women.
That tells you everything.

Why direct criticism towards a necessary response that is designed to counter a social evil, that being male chauvinism?

We should be addressing the dynamic regarding "why is there a 'female empowerment' movement?" People complain about the "excesses" of the women's liberation movements-while remaining silent towards gender inequality.

It's like Caucasian-Americans that criticize BET's existence without analyzing why the station was created, in the beginning? Without the station many African-Americans involved in television, film, and music-i.e. directors, producers, actors, etc lacked any viable creative outlet, not to mention employment. With the creation of a station that is focused towards the nuanced African-American communities, just as mainstream media targets White-American culture, this provides a source of inspiration and independence for a marginalized community.
