She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, finally premiered on Disney+ on August 18 after its long awaited arrival. Although Marvel is still working on diversifying the MCU, this show is another step in that positive direction.

She-Hulk is one of the more relatable characters to the audience, and she shows her realistic life unlike other marvel shows or movies. Jennifer Walters, also known as She-Hulk, is the cousin of Bruce Banner, and was a dedicated lawyer, until her life suddenly changed tremendously.

Banner and Walters got into a car crash which resulted in their blood mixing and transforming her into who we know as She-Hulk. Although she dreaded involuntarily taking on the task of being a potential superhero, she trained and learned to control herself which eventually resulted in her returning to life as a lawyer, and also an enhanced human. By being a lawyer of the superhuman law division, Jennifer’s job is to work on cases involving superhumans who are in need of her assistance.

Although this show has gained many positive reviews, it also received a large amount of negative reviews. Much of the negative feedback is due to the story having no backstory or because the show seems to be too rushed with no explanation of some of the scenes. The lack of lack of time spent on perfecting the cgi is noticeable as well, and is another reason why critics and fans have expressed disinterest in the show. 

Contrastingly, viewers who enjoy the show rave about the comedy and femininity incorporated throughout the show. 

Overall, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is a comedic and entertaining show for all audiences, even the people that have not read the comics. It is an interesting addition to Disney and a show for all to enjoy.
