She-Hulk #1 Through the Eyes of a Lawyer
Charles Soule‘s She-Hulk hit the shelves this week and has been flying off ever since, particularly here in lawyer heavy Washington, DC. Soule is a real life lawyer on top of his comic writing duties, taking on She-Hulk/Jennifer Walters a superhero/lawyer herself. I am not a lawyer, but I thought it’d be fun to see what one thought of the first issue.
Here’s the Top 5 thoughts in no particular order about She-Hulk #1 from the lawyer I trust the most, my fiance.
- Despite the smoking gun piece of evidence it’d really take years to get the case through court.
- She billed 2800 hours that year, plus saving the world… when does she sleep? That 2800 is what was billed, not worked. You bill about 70-75% of what you actually work. That is if you’re good. So, you can imagine what’s worked for that 2800 hours.
- It was a bit hard to believe it wasn’t clear upfront when she was hired it was as a “rainmaker.”
- She loved the part with Legal where he goes off into fine print. Literally the lettering was fine print. Loved it. When multiple lawyers get in a room. This is what happens. They will start talking in fine print.
- She-Hulk’s not wrong about CEOs being out of touch with their legal department. Because no one likes dealing with legal.
