First, some general background. Hulk is Bruce Banner, a weak scientist who turns into a green powerful monster when he's angry (you surely know that part well). She-Hulk is Jennifer Walters, cousin of Bruce Banner and Distaff Counterpart of Hulk. And, for many years, that was basically the whole thing. Some years ago, a new Hulk was introduced, the Red Hulk (who is a completely different and unrelated guy, not Banner). Writers liked the idea, and created a "Red She-Hulk" as well (who is Betty Ross, Banner's wife). And then there's also Lyra, the She-Hulk from an alternate timeline, the daughter of Hulk and Thundra.

Now, the page. Some time ago, the entry on She-Hulk was about Jennifer, and had her image. I checked back some weeks ago, and found that the page now talks about Jen and Lyra, and the main image was removed. As I thought that was because it wasn't a page of a single character anymore, I added an image with the several She-Hulks toguether. Since then, the article comes and goes between no image and several images of Jen.

Those are the images used so far.

I really don't know what to do about this page...I like the pic of Lyra in her folder, but I'm not really keen on either of the She-Hulk pics, and the one with all three is too busy and has too much emphasis on the Hulks in the background.

Those are the ones uploaded so far, we can always propose another one that is better. But first, let's get clear on a point: should it be an image of Jennifer Walter, or an image of the several She-Hulks?

Considering it is a page with several characters, that's better, and have individual pics for individual characters.

But as Willbyr said, the multi-Hulk image isn't that great.

What about this one?

Lyra, red She-Hulk and green She-Hulk. You wouldn't like them when they are angry.

I prefer the current with Jen because:

1) She Hulk is not a Legacy Character

2) Red She-Hulk has already her own page

3 )Lyra is better moved to Hulk characters

I much prefer the current image with a smiling She-Hulk holding scales of justice. It is of great artistic quality, and much better exemplifies what the character is about: A tongue in cheek sense of fun and decency, and some action mixed with courtroom antics.

In addition, the page is intended to be about the main character of this title. I think that Red She-Hulk has her own page, and in either case she is permanently depowered back to Betty Banner, whereas Lyra is a comparatively very minor character swept to the side. As a supporting character, it is better to move her to the characters section.

Lyra should not be moved, unless you think the Spider-woman page should be changed as well.

[up] That page is good as is, although a better-quality version of the cover pic with all of them on it would help. The pic on Spider Gwen needs a quality upgrade too.

Well, I am not certain if Lyra is even called She-Hulk nowadays, but if she is, I would prefer if we could keep the current image for Jennifer Walters, and another one for Lyra.

Aug 14th 2015 at 11:35:51 AM

If we stay with a single image then, I also agree to use the second one, for the reasons detailed by Codename Bravo.

If we stick with the scales-of-justice one I wouldn't be opposed to keeping the current caption, but I would at least suggest changing it.

Jennifer shares the title of "She-Hulk" with her, much like Clint shares the title of "Hawkeye" with Kate.

Aug 18th 2015 at 5:23:08 PM

Yes, both Jen and Lyra are She-Hulk at the moment. So I suggest keeping the current page structure.

I also like the scales picture, it shows all the main elements of her character: strength, muscles, her lawyer alter ego, and her attractiveness (which is often a plot point in-universe). I agree that the quote might be a bit too meta, but I'm not sure what it can be replaced with.

I like the second image.

Maybe the caption should something be about justice being blind, but not her.

Aug 27th 2015 at 8:54:17 AM

I'd prefer we stick with Jennifer.

"Justice may be blind, but she is not" sounds kind of nice as a caption.

I'll agree with 6's argument. [tup] 1.2.

[up][up]The blindness metaphor seems a bit weird to me; it would work much better for e.g. Daredevil. She-Hulk doesn't have any connection to blindness or sight.

Maybe something like "The strong arm of justice"?

So, just add that caption and call the page good as is?
