About Mary MacPherran Aka Titania
Gao decided to modernize the character, giving her a new interest in social media, creating the character of Mary MacPherran aka Titania. Seeing how successful female superheroes were on television like Supergirl and Jessica Jones, Gao wanted to create a TV show with a female hero who has tremendous power but struggles to balance her personal life with her superhero responsibility.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, the creator of She-Hulk, Stan Lee, said, Titania was more powerful. Stronger. Taller. Thicker thighs. With a few modifications, Gao wanted to modernize and give her a little more complexity. He gravitated towards being interested in social media and makeup in this iteration of the character; after all, she is named after a very popular Marvel character that also happens to be an influencer (namely Mary MacPherran aka @dearjames) on Instagram – who is also based off Jameela Jamil herself.
Thoughts on The She-Hulk
The She-Hulk is a quintessential Marvel superhero for me. For starters, she’s green, my favorite color. This isn’t her most defining characteristic, but it does make her different from the rest. Her strength is also unparalleled; at one point in the comics she saved New York City by lifting an oil tanker out of the water to avoid disaster. In addition to these features, which are obviously all amazing and badass in their own right, I love that Jennifer Walters juggles being a lawyer and being a superhero without making either aspect seem superfluous or less important than the other.
Thoughts on Other Adaptations of She-Hulk
In the Marvel Universe, there have been several notable versions of She-Hulk. However, Gao’s interpretation feels like a very original take on the character and we’re intrigued to see how she stacks up against the other portrayals of this traditionally unpopular and overlooked character. This version of She-Hulk offers a different perspective than any we’ve seen before and may ultimately be one that everyone can get behind.
SheHulk first appeared in 1982. Her green, powerful appearance has been modernized for the Netflix show The Champions with actress Jameela Jamil who was a great choice for the complex character. With the inclusion of social media and modernizing the character, this new interpretation of She-Hulk will be more relatable to today’s audience. The comedic series is a breath of fresh air that takes you through an exciting plot while still being different enough to stand out on its own.
