I see that a lot of women are appreciating the series but I am just disappointed and sad. I started to think and it pisses me off that I can not come up with a single female character who is supposed to just be ugly, old, unhygenic or just generally unappealing to men, not one! The she hulk model is just a normal fit woman with green skin and model face (she is not even remotely as jacked as real culturist women!!!), nothing like male hulk who despite "being a monster" can be loved. I want a woman's character who can also "be a monster" or just ugly and still be loved. Never seeing that is just depressing. Maybe I am complaining too much but I feel burried about how high the expectations of beauty on women are placed, like they are so high we can not even get a likeable female character who is not sexually appealing in some way. This is especially unjust watching how male characters can look in whatever way (be it real ugly actors like Adam Sandler or Danny Devito or cgi creations like Hulk, Thanos, etc.) and still be interesting, are we ever getting the same?

She looks like a video game character in a live action movie…is that how it’s supposed to be? If she weren’t green, she would look like a normal woman next to the Hulk. I’ve never seen these movies and won’t be watching this but i wonder if they’ll CGI her to be even bigger when she Hulks up for the contrast?? I think this She Hulk design looks pretty cool. Feminine but built like a monster truck lol. Hope I linked that right.

But I hear ya about female characters not being allowed to be anything but pretty and sexy. Seeing the female dwarfs in Rings of Power with not a hair on their faces really annoyed me. It’s book cannon and can easily be achieved with practical makeup/effects!
