How Does She Hulk Get Her Powers?

She-Hulk. Her past has been shrouded in mystery, but this sleuthy writer has been uncovering it piece by piece, bit by bit. You wanted to know where she went to law school, and I found that out for you. Now it seems like you want to know her origin story. So do I. It’s cool to figure out where things come from. Like babies. Do they grow on vines? Are they dropped by birds? What exactly happens when a mommy and a daddy love each other very much? I’m still trying to figure it out. But while I put the nail in the “where do babies come from?” coffin once and for all, you should entertain yourself with the knowledge of how mild-mannered Jenny Walters turned into the lean green killing machine she is today.

Small caveat, her origin story in the T.V. show is a little different than the comics, but viva la difference, right? That’s what makes life interesting. Here’s how She-Hulk gets her powers in the MCU.

She-Hulk’s Powers in the MCU Explained

So, according to my findings, She-Hulk got her powers after accepting a blood transfusion from her cousin, Bruce Banner. Yes, you read that correctly, She-Hulk is The Hulk’s cousin. To answer your follow-up question: no, I will not be accepting any form of incest-related fanfics at this time. Case closed. That’s it. We’re done. GO HOME.

I still don’t have any idea where babies come from, but the thought of you all letting your dirty minds run wild across the MCU has made me never ever want to find out.
