How Does Jennifer Walters Become She-Hulk in the MCU – Answered

According to well-known journalist and Marvel collaborator, Matt Ramos, Jennifer Walters will gain her powers through exposure to Bruce Banner’s blood. This happens as a result of a car accident.

Going back to Walters’ comic book origin, the MCU version slightly differs. In the comics, Walters does indeed receive a blood transfusion from Bruce Banner, but it comes from Walters being shot by the hands of a crime boss, not from a car accident.

This isn’t the first time fans of Marvel have seen something of this nature take place. Leading up to the epic conclusion of 2008’s Incredible Hulk, Doctor Samuel Sterns is exposed to Bruce Banner’s blood during a scuffle. This would later transform him into The Leader, but the movie never saw a sequel to explore this transformation.
