The Hulk has huge bulging muscles. Why does She-Hulk only look like a talling average woman with green skin? Would it not make since for the She-Hulk to have huge bulging muscles the pop out all over?

Because she is a woman. Women don't get that ridiculously big, even on steroids.

I don't see how the way she is now makes less sense than what you're saying.

But he's talking about Hulk big. Even the most muscular woman is no where near as big as the most muscular man.

because women in comics are used as sexual devices to sell more comics, no one (at least that I know) finds a woman as muscular as the Hulk sexually appealing

She never had Sex with Juggernaut.That was non-canon.That's why when Wolverine said..I don't want Juggernaut's leftovers..she said "Why does everyone keep saying that?" It was Wolverine breaking the 4th wall.

I like toned, athletic women, but I don't find women with bulging muscles to be attractive. Some artists do depict She-Hulk with bulging muscles, and I don't like those versions of her.

I believe you're incorrect. Our She-Hulk never had sex with Juggernaut, but an alternate reality She-Hulk did. See, the ordeal was retconned and it turned out that counterparts from another universe, whom have no powers, sometimes sneak over into our reality where they get the powers of their counterparts and have some fun before going back to their reality.

Because that would ruin Marvel's chance at more sex appeal of course.

It happened and is canon, it just didn't happen with our universes's she-hulk.

Everyone don't who mentioned the Juggernaut thing in the comic..I assume aren't aware that the real She-Hulk didn't have sex with Juggernaut.

okay I was exaggerrating. But I would say she is one of the top 10 most premiscuous heroes of the marvel universe. Off the top of my head I can think of 6 maybe 7 heroes she has banged. And I know she has slept with normal dudes as well. 
nothing wrong with it though. I love She-Hulk

Juggernaut

Wyatt Wingfoot

Hawkeye in What If?

Ironman
Hercules

Than there are at least 3 or 4 random guys I recall she has banged. She-Hulk is one of the most promiscuous, well known heroines in marvel. Not saying it is a bad thing, just saying

Luke Cage,Iron Man,Manwolf and Wyatt Wingfoot are right.
What if's are a different universe and Hercules never happened.

There were no random guys.

Also...Iron Man and Cage are the only people she had sex with but wasn't dating.She was married to John Jameson\Manwolf and she was planned on marrying Wyatt.I don't call that promiscuous.

She dated Cage for a very brief period of time. And even though there may not have been scans of her sleeping with Average guys it has been assumed/alluded to in her books. Also I think she also slept with Starfox and The Man-Thing.

There's "Fluff" and then there's "Buff." Fluff is big, bulging muscles. And while very strong, they aren't as strong as they look. Then there's Buff, that's strength-building. Buff is smaller than fluff, but is denser and stronger than Fluff.

Because most female characters are intended to entice male viewers.



This is repulsive.

kind of confused by the OP's question...you've seen She-Hulk right?




#42 Posted by MrMiracle77 (1659 posts) - - Show Bio

She Hulk's emotional factor that triggers her transformation is fear, as opposed to Bruce's factor which is anger.  As a result, Shulkie normally reaches a cap.  Once she's strong enough, her self-confidence takes over and she no longer feels fear.  There have been occasions where she's passed that cap, namely the Red Mist and Disassembled storylines.

#43 Posted by CATMANEXE--defunct (17052 posts) - - Show Bio

not to mention her body contains estrogen, which likely levels out her form, and maybe increases with transformation

@jl9233:  Well when she was fighting the Champion of the Universe who had the soul storm of power she had to switch off her She hulk'ness and go back to Jennifer Walters and get her skinny pink but into the gym to buff up. By doing so and then changing back to the Green flirt Machine she had massive muscles.
Basically She hulk is just more of what Jennifer Walters has already got in the Bod department.

All of these scientific answers are complete B.S. There is no scientific reason She Hulk has no muscle. None. Zero. 
 
She Hulk has no muscle because Marvel doesn't MAKE muscular women. Period. No matter how much Strength the female is supposed to have, they will never draw them REGULARLY with larger than 14" biceps and maybe some abs. Make yourself a list of Superstrength females. Now do a muscle check. EXACTLY.  
 
There is ONE exception. And that is Titania, a bad guy. Good guy females do not get muscle. There is a sexist attitude that muscles are a man only trait. I stand by my long time belief that if you were to take a picture of She Hulk that was not wearing a uniform, copy it and save it as a Black and White image, no one would ever be able to tell you which Marvel character you were showing them. Its a lazy tactic where any picture of Jennifer GREEN is She-Hulk. 
 
Characters like Bishop and Cyclops are drawn with more more muscle, despite having no special strength powers, then female characters listed as capable of lifting double digits in terms of tonnage. Its sexist, pure and simple to sell comics. And I really don't think its too much to ask for 5 - 10 females to be drawn accurately with upper limit bodybuilder style muscles when the other 3,000 Marvel women are drawn like they came out of MAXIM magazine.
