It's a pretty common theme in comics for a civilian love-interest character to be granted powers similar to her namesake hero. The most notable examples that come to mind are Lois Lane's multiple transformations into Superwoman and Carol Ferris's becoming a Violet Lantern (Star Sapphire). I always enjoy this type of plot. Mostly because I love seeing how the same powers and abilities would be expressed differently from a female perspective. While I've always paid keen attention when these stories would appear, I've never before become quite as obsessed as I was when Betty (Ross) Banner became the Red She-Hulk. She had a brief 10-issue self-titled run from 2012-2013 which I thought was amazing. The art was beautiful, her characterization was well fleshed out. She was righteous, vengeful, compassionate, and of course angry. I loved every page of it. Unfortunately we haven't heard from her in the past six months. I would love a continuation of the unlikely Red She-Hulk / Machine Man team-up.
This Marvel Universe figure is a welcome addition to the small collection of Red She-Hulk merchandise we've seen so far. I just hope the release of this figure will signal a re-emergence of the character in the comics!
Here are some images of her from the comics.
Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!
Here she is with 2013's Marvel Legends Red She-Hulk.
