I have never been a reader of the Hulk books but I have always felt like I should give them a try. I had been looking for a She-Hulk book at one of the libraries in my library system when I saw this one. I was totally looking to read about Jennifer Walters and was surprised to see that it was Betty Ross instead who was Red She-Hulk.

I found the story really interesting. The whole world as super computer concept has been done before but I haven't seen it as a comic before and I found the interplay between her and MachineMan interesting. I also loved that computer was using Tesla as it's face. I am definitely curious to see where this goes. ( )

Hell Hath No Fury is a pretty fun story. I haven't read anything that actually used Betty Ross before now, except I think she was in a Hulk comic I read for a few pages. This gives her a story of her own, one that doesn't revolve around Bruce Banner, and though I'm not fond of the way this plot talks about Bruce/Hulk (as becoming nothing more than a monster), her issues and her mission are pretty interesting. I don't think I've read anything using Aaron Stack/the android X-51 before, and he's pretty interesting too: an android more advanced than Ultron and the Vision.

Despite the fact that this is issues #58-62 of Red She-Hulk, it's easy enough to follow what's happening. There's a quick summary of who Betty is and how she Hulked out at the beginning, and the other mysteries explain themselves as you go along. Aaron is pretty self-explanatory, too. I think this works without reference to any other arcs and storylines, beyond the background knowledge about Betty Ross' relationship to Bruce Banner.

The Avengers also have their moment here; it's a little funny how Red She-Hulk can so easily defeat them; it's like Marvel making Betty more powerful than all of them combined, which I'm not entirely sure she's meant to be. Mind you, she's got the body of a Hulk and the mind of Betty Ross, so she's subtler than the original Hulk, more able to strategise. Anyway, the Avengers' appearance and banter is fun, and I like seeing Cap making the tough decisions with the data he has -- it's the wrong decision, but he can't know that. He just does the best he can. ( )
