It is pretty much impossible at this point to not have some MCU content in the current release. Between the films and the TV shows, they are a ubiquitous part of the cultural zeitgeist. So much so that we can’t really cover them all on our show anymore. However, some of them definitely seem worth the kind of analysis we do here. She-Hulk is one of those shows. Between complaints about the CGI, fights over feminism and wokeness, comparisons to the source material, and the standard arguments about MCU content, She-Hulk is getting a lot of press. Well, we’re going to contribute to that.
On this week’s episode, Monica and Mav are joined by Dr. Sam Langsdale, editor of Monstrous Women in Comics to talk all about She-Hulk: the character, the comic, and the TV show. We break down the character’s history and her cultural relevance, her feminism, sexism, and progressivism, both in the comics and the show, the CGI, the current state of the MCU in general and we talk about what think is and isn’t working with the show in specific and why we think you should give it a chance if you haven’t been watching it. Listen and let us know what you think in the comments below.
