    These articles continue to make this series look really cool.

    And I quite like the idea Red She Hulk having a "big ass sword".

    I like it too. It gives her a little something extra... Fraction's putting some cool ideas into this series...

    Yeah it does differentiate her from everyone else, in a way. Although Fraction keeps referring to his characters as real life people, or like other fictional characters. Like he called Iron Fist Steve Jobs and Richard Branson and he called She Hulk Johnny Knoxville and Indiana Jones ... I wonder why he doesn't just write them like the characters themselves? It's cool that he's exploring outside influences, but I don't think every character needs to be described like someone from pop culture. We already know what these characters are like.

    Fraction is usually good at ideas, his execution is the problem.

    That may just be how his mind works in trying to find the character's "voice". Some of these character's don't have a defined voice, so I can see why he'd do that. Red She-Hulk is still in the process of being defined. He helped define the modern Iron Fist, he's trying to redefine the modern somewhat de-powered Doctor Strange. A lot of authors do that- find a starting point using another model or archetype and go from there. And some of this is marketing to folks who maybe don't know the characters. So I can dig it.

    Anyway, I'm psyched to try out the series!

    Default Get rid Betty!

    Get rid of Betty and bring in Jen! The original She-Hulk is all Fraction described for Betty, plus sex personified, sure to stir things up among the other Defenders. ~ Hype

    Looking forward to this.

    I am not reading New Avengers anymore,so i am glad that Defenders features Iron Fist.

    Red She Hulk is a interesting character in this team.
    The first team of Defenders had Hulk,so its interesting to red she hulk apear in the newest Defenders.
    Pull List:New Avengers,Thor,Superior Spider-Man,Mighty Avengers,Swamp Thing,Daredevil,Uncanny Avengers,Superior Foes of Spider-Man.

    it sounds so simple. but consider that She-Hulk is also part of Nighthawk's Defenders team. how do you involve She-Hulk in this without dissing the other group.

    Nighthawk's Defenders team seems to only exist in the Joe Kelly-verse.

    I'm not sure its been even mentioned anywhere outside of Last Defenders and Vengeance.

    Agree 100%. We need more Jen.. not party-colored imitations.
