With decades of stories behind her, there are some moments from She-Hulk's past that have aged like milk.

Since Jennifer Walters debuted as She-Hulk in Stan Lee and John Buscema's The Savage She-Hulk #1 in February 1980, the world has changed plenty. This explains why some of her comics include things that definitely aged like milk. From terrifying sexual innuendos to two-dimensional and boring villains that went nowhere, Marvel would like fans to forget some things from Shulkie's comics.

Some of these poorly aged characters and plots actually had a point at the time, but others, like John Byrne's sexist jokes, were particularly unnecessary. Fortunately, She-Hulk comics have been actively changing since those kinds of misogynistic jokes were socially acceptable, but they will forever be connected to the first runs of the Jade Giantess.

Probably the most concerning part of She-Hulk's old runs is the rampant sexism that cast her as a victim. John Byrne's run is full of sexual, and not always consensual, innuendos that played on the fact that the author was in control of the character.

These jokes combined perfectly with a hyper-sexualized She-Hulk who was always running around half-naked with accidentally ripping through her clothes functioning as the go-to excuse. In a time and age where women fight to be seen as people and not as objects to lust over, Sensational She-Hulk doesn't make the cut.
