Last year a new She-Hulk series from writer Rainbow Rowell was launched ahead of the Disney+ original series. The upcoming She-Hulk #12 in April also happens to be 175th solo issue for the character’s series, and to celebrate the milestone Marvel has announced that Rowell is teaming up with artist Andrés Genolet for a double-sized She-Hulk #175 that will introduce a brand new villain known as the Scoundrel.
The milestone issue will feature a cover by Jen Bartel. Here’s how Marvel describes the issue:
In the pages of her latest solo series, Jennifer Walters has reopened her law practice, took on some of her most intense cases yet, defeated a duo of new villains, and even found time for a new romance! But this April in SHE-HULK #12, She-Hulk’s promising new super hero journey will be threatened by a dangerous new archnemesis known as THE SCOUNDREL! Just in time for her 175th solo issue, She-Hulk will meet her match in a wild showdown that will have all her fans talking!
The double-sized issue will reunite Rowell with artist Andrés Genolet, who she previously created comic book magic with in the latest run of Runaways. The landmark issue will also feature a host of all-star talent coming on board to celebrate the icon in a series of bonus stories!
Rowell teased what to expect from Shulkie’s new foe:
“Every issue that I get to write She-Hulk is a delight — but I’m especially honored to escort her to her 175th issue. One of things we’ve focused on is building up Jen’s narrative support structure… Giving her friends, colleagues, a love interest and her very own antagonists. The Scoundrel is an adversary tailor-made for Jennifer Walters. A lot of things come easily for Jen. Nothing about the Scoundrel is easy.”
Look for She-Hulk #12 to arrive in stores and digitally on Wednesday, April 19th.
