Okay … Episode 1 of “She-Hulk” (2022) was pretty damned good!

It looks to be a smart, irreverent, dialogue-driven trip in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it maybe has kind of a Kevin Smith vibe to it?

Tatiana Maslany makes the show worth watching, in the same way that Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones) and Hailee Steinfeld (Kate Bishop) made their shows work — by giving us a smart, fast-talking, likable wiseass as a heroine.

I already like her more than … He -Hulk. Regular Hulk? Let’s just call him Hulk Classic. (Sorry, guys, I was never that into Bruce Banner or his alter-ego. Don’t kill me.)

Count me in.

Postscript — here’s a fun thing to debate … who would be the first character in the MCU to break the fourth wall? Would it be She-Hulk? Wanda in the latest Doctor Strange movie? Or does Deadpool count yet?
