He goes on to kill Bushman and become Moon Knight. The character first appeared in the August 1975 comic-book issue, Werewolf By Night #32. She-Hulk is Jennifer Walters, cousin of Bruce Banner. She acquires Hulk’s powers after an emergency blood transfusion from Banner. However, Walters will be able to retain her personality even when she is in Hulk mode. Emmy nominated actor Tatiana Maslany will be taking on the titular role in She-Hulk.
