Comics Wrap-Up - Jennifer Walters Rocks!


'Comics Wrap-Up' with lined-notebook-style background and speech bubbles containing heart symbols

It's Thursday, this is Dora Reads, so let's get some comics-y superhero-y goodness!

TV Trailers

Our first She-Hulk: Attorney At Law trailer is here!

You may not know this but I am a huge She-Hulk fan - Jennifer Walters rocks! In the right hands, Jennifer is a feminist icon.

...Let's hope these are the right hands.

Because there are a couple of things which are concerning me in this trailer - 

Firstly the CGI isn't great, let's be honest. It just isn't.

And secondly, some of this seems to step just a little too close to that thin line between sexy, and over-sexualised.

Jen is sexy. Sexy is fine - sexy is good. I'm more than happy for Jen to be sexy. (*fans self*) 

But please, for the love of all that is holy, don't let them over-sexualise her!

I do love the way we're owning the 'she's Bruce Banner's cousin, just accept it,' thing! 

She-Hulk is very much from the era of comics where the female-counterpart-style heroes usually had to be related in some way to the male 'original.' 

It's so entrenched in her character that ignoring it (as contrived as it is as an origin story,) just wouldn't have worked. 

And this way we get Mark Ruffalo, and Marvel gets the headache that is stopping Mark Ruffalo from leaking spoilers from a multi-part series. Everyone wins! Lol. 😁😅

Warning: flashing images, general violence, implied sexy-times

Other Stuff

I have some more #OwnVoices Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) discussions of Moon Knight for you!

Warnings for all: SPOILERS, discussions of sensitive subjects: including but not limited to - mental health problems, violence, trauma, and child abuse

First up we have Charlie from Youtube channel and DID system braiDIDbunch, talking about the series finale:

Xyla Star from YouTube channel, and DID system, The Star System talks about episodes 4 and 5 in these two videos:

Chris from The Infinity System YouTube channel and DID system has a unique and thorough way of really digging into the core of the representation.

Run-time: 15.45

Over at Paperback Princess, Em reviewed graphic novel Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur: The Beginning.

Last week's Friday Fics Fix featured an Alternate Universe where Bucky Barnes is a stabby teenager in Steve's kitchen.

And to end, as is traditional with some more shameless self-promo:

Over on Medium, I talked about the finale of Moon Knight, which you can see here. Or you can see the same on Dora Reads here.

Also on Medium, I talked about manhwa webcomic Cursed Princess Club, which you can see here. Or you can see the original CWU post where I talked about it on Dora Reads here.

What do you think of the She-Hulk trailer?

Will Mark Ruffalo be able to hold in all of the spoilers?

  1. Thanks for sharing my post, Cee! There's so much new Marvel content recently that I can hardly keep up. I really don't know much about She-Hulk so I suppose I don't have much of an opinion until I see the show. I do love Mark Ruffalo though!

    1. No probs Em :)

      I know, I'm way behind with the movies - trying not to let the FOMO get to me though! :)

  2. I hope she Hulk is good and they don't go full cringe "yaaayy queen slay" route that gets repetitive fast.

    1. I get what you mean - but if it's done right, that's pretty cool too :)
