https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mary_macpherran_earth_616_from_fantastic_four_vol_1_549_cover_001.jpg

Alter Ego: Mary MacPherran

Notable Aliases: "Skeeter", Skirn: Breaker of Men

First Appearance: Secret Wars Vol. 1 #3 (July 1984)

A long-time rival of She-Hulk and wife of the Absorbing Man.


  • Absolute Cleavage: Her usual attire sports this.
  • Alliterative Name: 'M's.
  • All the Other Reindeer: Bullied by pretty much everyone as a teenager. Is it any wonder when Doctor Doom offered her the chance for superpowers, she took it?
  • Always Someone Better: Has a raging inferiority complex when it comes to She-Hulk. Creel's advice to her on this subject can be found in the Quotes section of that trope's page.
  • Amazonian Beauty: Very beautiful and quite muscular.
  • Arch-Enemy: Of She-Hulk.
  • Battle Couple: With the Absorbing Man.
  • Boobs of Steel: She is as strong as she is buxom.
  • The Brute: A rare female example.
  • Dark Action Girl: Just as much of a brawler as Jennifer.
  • Dirty Coward: She has no problem picking on those weaker than her, such as when She-Hulk accidentally took on Weezi's body form and strength. Titania gleefully tossed her around like a rag doll until the switch was undone.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: The Absorbing Man is her husband. She also has a Villainous Friendship with Volcana.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: She has no problem taking on superheroes, but she absolutely refuses to go after families and friends of heroes.
  • Evil Counterpart: To She-Hulk. Every bit as tall, buff, strong, and durable as Shulkie, and very hotheaded to boot, which factors heavily into her heated rivalry with She-Hulk.
  • Fiery Evil Redhead: She possess a fiery attitude, and is evil.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: Little Mary MacPherran went from a powerless victim of bullying to being the number one enemy of She-Hulk.
  • Hazy Feel Turn: After growing tired of their usual lot in life as a supervillain, she and Creel are trying to go straight. Emphasis on trying because she doesn't have any of the nobility to be an outright hero, though she's willing to take up assignments that at the least are for the public good. Whatever keeps her out of jail really.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: Before her change, Mary wanted more than anything to be more than just the short, scrawny and utterly average person she was. So much so that she lied and claimed she was Spider-Woman to get some attention.
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: A large factor in her enimity with Shulkie. Titania hates feeling weak (as it reminds her of childhood), so whenever Shulkie manages to get the upper hand, Titania just loses it. Inversely, when she out-muscles She-Hulk, Titania is all high and mighty and quick to rub it in her foe's face.
    • In fact, Spider-Man calls her out on it, comparing her to nothing more than a cowardly bully whose true colors come out when she's in the losing end. After she beat She-Hulk for the first time and thought Spidey would be easy pickings, he utterly crushed her through greater agility and experience, all while calling her out on this. It left her terrified of him for years.
  • Odd Friendship: She and Creel develop one with Eugene Judd/Puck, accepting his offer to work in the new Gamma Flight.
  • Official Couple: With Absorbing Man.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Her outfits tend to be purple, and she's quite strong.
  • Secondary Color Nemesis: She's a redhead (orange) and her outfits are almost always purple.
  • Smug Super: When you start out as an often picked-on girl who is transformed into a tall and tough Amazon thanks to Doctor Doom, it's only natural that you begin to think of yourself as superior to most.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Her costume has several spikes.
  • Statuesque Stunner: Very tall, about 6'6". She's actually a couple of inches taller than Creel.
  • Super Strength: She's actually stronger than She-Hulk in her usual calm state, although that hasn't stopped She-Hulk and even Spider-Man (during Secret Wars (1984)) from walking all over her on a few occasions. Regardless, the two women are among the strongest female supers in the Marvel universe, and much like She-Hulk, she can undergo Training from Hell to increase her already impressive strength.
  • Tsundere: Type A. She's quite brash and abrasive by default, but surprisingly loving and devoted towards Creel (they tend to be overprotective of each other as a result). Titania is arguably a Yandere/Stalker with a Crush in regards to Shulkie.
  • Unholy Matrimony: Again, with Creel.
  • Violently Protective Girlfriend: Not that Creel can't look after himself, but hurting him is a guaranteed way to make Mary mad.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Developed an intense fear of Spider-Man after he curb-stomped her in Secret Wars. It took her a few years to get over it. Ironically, Spider-Man was nervous about confronting her again, believing that he only beat her through sheer luck.
  • Will Not Be a Victim: As a kid, Titania was picked on constantly. When she gained superpowers she felt truly powerful for the first time in her life and never wanted to feel weak again.

    Pseudo-Man 

Pseudo-Man

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/866633_pseudoman.jpg

Alter Ego: Clark Finark

First Appearance: Sensational She-Hulk #10 (December, 1989)

Clark Finark was a candidate for a Midwest congressional seat who hired Pseudonix Incorporated to manage his advertising campaign. Finark's political aspirations were sunk when his opponent discovered that his birth certificate stated he was from the planet Veegwal, a non-existent planet his parents had listed as his place of birth due to being high on drugs. Finark blamed Lexing Loopner, the head of Pseudonix Incorporated, for the downfall of his political career and for contributing to society's obsession with media sensationalism and image branding. He stole Loopner's Pseudonix technology and used it to terrorize the city, necessitating She-Hulk to stop him.


  • Clothes Make the Superman: In contrast to most "evil Supermen", Finark's powers are not internalized. His strength comes from the helmet he wears.
  • Corrupted Character Copy: Of Superman. He has Superman's first name and Midwestern origin and his enemy is a CEO. Although Loopner is an innocent if somewhat shady man.
  • Fishbowl Helmet: The source of his powers.
  • Hard Light: The Pseudonic Image technology Finark uses creates holograms that feel very real and can cause physical damage to people and the environment around him.
  • Misplaced Retribution: Finark blamed Loopner for the ruination of his political career rather than his opponent who leaked the false information about him being an alien from outer space or even his parents for putting that information on his birth certificate.
  • Villain Has a Point: Louise and Jennifer acknowledge that Finark's hatred of media sensationalism and image branding wasn't entirely unjustified even if he went about proving his point in the worst way possible.
  • Your Mind Makes It Real: Finark's helmet is a "miniatiruzed pseudonic environment" which grant him superhuman strength as long as he believes himself to an invincible demigod.

    Jasper Keaton 

Jasper Keaton

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jasper_keaton_from_sensational_she_hulk_vol_1_21_0001.jpg

First Appearance: Sensational She-Hulk #21 (November, 1990)

Jasper Keaton was an old acquaintance of She-Hulk's friend Louise Mason and once worked for her father Senator Grant as his aide. He is the owner of a savings and loan company and the founder of the American Purity Foundation. When his company was in danger of being seized by the government, Keaton offered to find "Rosebud", a bomb that had been stolen in the 1940s, for a few senators in exchange for them letting him keep control of his company. In order to find the bomb, Keaton had Louise's home burglarized and then had her abducted. She-Hulk had to team up with Louise's daughter Wanda in order to save Louise and stop Keaton's plan.


  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Keaton presents himself as a champion of wholesomeness and good moral values but is in reality a ruthless Corrupt Corporate Executive.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: His savings and loan company was in danger of being seized by the government so he struck a deal with some senators to find the Rosebud bomb in exchange for keeping his company.
  • Driven to Suicide: Keaton tries to kill himself after his plans fail but is stopped by Wanda Mason.
  • Family Values Villain: He is against pornography and sex outside of marriage.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Louise remembered him as something of a jerk but was still surprised and disappointed to learn he had become a pro-censorship, moral crusader. The reveal that he's using illegal means to save his company bumps him up from Jerkass to villain.
  • Hypocrite: She-Hulk's clothes are destroyed by Captain Rectitude who fired upon her on Keaton's orders. Keaton fires a string of Slut-Shaming insults at the naked She-Hulk even though it's really his and Captain Rectitude's fault that She-Hulk ended up in a state of nudity in the first place. He also sees pornography and sexual liberation as being responsible for the moral decay of America even though he's a Corrupt Corporate Executive who's willing to bribe senators, abduct his old boss's daughter and even detonate an atomic bomb in a city all in the name of saving his company.
  • Moral Guardians: Keaton founded the American Purity Foundation and led an anti-smut campaign in 1968 in a failed attempt to clean up the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: He throws a string of Slut-Shaming slurs at She-Hulk after her clothes are destroyed by Captain Rectitude, who blasted her on Keaton's orders.
  • Straw Character: Keaton is an anti-sex, anti-pornography, pro-censorhip moral crusader who is also a hypocritical criminal and attempted murderer.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: He has white hair from age and is very much an evil man.

    Captain Rectitude 

Captain Rectitude

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sensational_she_hulk_vol_1_23_page_09_bob_jones_iv_earth_616.jpg

Alter Ego: Bob Jones IV

First Appearance: Sensational She-Hulk #21 (November, 1990)

Once an employee of Jasper Keaton's savings and loan company, Bob Jones IV underwent a genetics research experiment which granted him superpowers. He serves as the superhero mascot of the American Purity Foundation and is Jasper Keaton's right-hand man in his schemes.


  • Black-and-White Insanity: Captain Rectitude has been genetically modified to have a strong aversion to anything related to sexuality. He once suggested destroying a statue that he saw as a "salacious depiction of womanhood" and he chastised She-Hulk for wearing revealing clothing made up of banners which she only had to do because Captain Rectitude had destroyed her clothes.
  • Blood Knight: Captain Rectitude repeatedly proposes using violence to solve solutions and is relieved when Keaton finally gives him permission to kill She-Hulk.
  • The Dragon: He is this for Keaton.
  • Flight, Strength, Heart: In addition to Flight and Super Strength, Rectitude was genetically modified to have his normal biological drives replaced with a strong anti-smut instinct.
  • Flying Brick: He's super strong and can fly.
  • Heart Beat-Down: He can fire purple energy beams from the heart-shaped emblem on his chest.
  • Irony: It's rather ironic that someone named Captain Rectitude ended up arrested for violating the Superhero Registration Act during Civil War.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: Like Keaton, Captain Rectitude also makes sexist remarks towards She-Hulk.

    Nicholas Trask 

Nicholas "Nick" Trask

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nick_trask.jpg
some caption text

First Appearance: Savage She-Hulk#1 (February, 1980)

The ruthless mobster who Jennifer Walters was prosecuting before becoming She-Hulk. His hit attempt on Walters indirectly created the She-Hulk.
  • Bad Boss: He casually kills his goons at the drop of a hat, whether to tie up loose ends or when something pisses him off. One really wonders how people still work for him.
  • Create Your Own Hero: It's because of him that Jennifer needed the transfusion from Bruce that turned her into She-Hulk. Trask's attempt on the life of one lawyer ironically ended up giving the Marvel world one of it's most beloved heroes.
  • Evil Genius: He devises a number of supervillain-level schemes to take out She-Hulk, such as building a robot to frame her , and later a giant digging machine to steal Roxxon's Oil. He might've made a descent rival to Silvermane or Hammerhead if he were still alive.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He's courteous and polite, but this is just to disguise what a vicious, self-serving murderer he is.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Just when he thinks he's won, the controls of his machine malfunction and Trask is sent burrowing to his doom at the center of the Earth.
  • One Steve Limit: Trask shares his last name with the X-Men villain Bolivar Trask. The two appear to have no relation whatsoever.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: He's only in 5 issues and is last seen plummeting beneath the earth, never to be heard from again. His actions against Jennifer Walters still led to her getting the transfusion that transformed her into a green fighting machine. We basically owe She-Hulk's existence to this man.
  • Starter Villain: He's the first menace She-Hulk fought and is killed off in their first and final battle. Though to his credit, he does last a little longer than you'd expect a non-super gangster.
  • Uncertain Doom: While Trask is assumed dead after being pulled beneath the earth with his own machine, it's never confirmed if he did indeed perish. He may have been trapped in a world far beneath the surface, which isn't implausible given the existence of Subterranea and the Moloids.

  • Genius Loci: Spragg belongs to a race of aliens which began as a cloud of spores that landed on Earth and evolved into sentient hills with Psychic Powers.

  • The World Is Not Ready: When he originally captured She-Hulk and learned she was innocent of any crime, he shelved the Man-Elephant suit to keep it from getting into the wrong hands.

Notable Aliases: She-Hulk

  • Frame-Up: Believing She-Hulk had framed her husband for man-slaughter (when in fact he had committed suicide after not being able to deal with the guilt of having killed their twin-sons and paralyzing his wife while drunk-driving), she committed acts of destruction while trying to get She-Hulk arrested. She would be stopped by She-Hulk and Nosferata.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After being defeated and the effects of the serum passed, she came back to her senses and abandoned the Adrenazon identity.

The Rumbler

He crossed paths with Jennifer's father Morris when the sheriff arrested for running over someone while driving under the influence. Released on bail, James died when he fell into a crevasse caused by an earthquake.

Or so it seemed until he resurfaced several decades later the power to control earth and desire for revenge against Morris Walters.


  • Dishing Out Dirt
  • Hero Killer: He temporarily kills She-Hulk due to her being weakened from War Zone's gas.
  • Never My Fault: While drunk, David ran over a little boy and crippled him. He knew that his career would be over once the press got a hold of it but instead of accepting responsibility for his mistakes, he blamed Morris Walters, a county deputy at the time, for arresting him.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: David is based on James Dean who was known for playing young, rebellious characters.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: David was remembered as a beloved Hollywood icon in life. However, he also had violent temper and an alcoholic problem which frequently got him into trouble with the law and only avoided jail time thanks to his very slick lawyer. Even after he crippled a little boy in a drunk driving accident, his reputation remained intact thanks to a combination of his "death" and his lawyer doing everything he could to keep his client's crimes a secret.
