Dan Slott is not happy that the fans are insulting She-Hulk: Lawyer and has gone to extreme lengths to defend the series.

Slott is one of many writers at Marvel Comics and has a lot of knowledge about most Marvel characters. Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk is a character Slott knows a lot about and was excited about her MCU series. Having loved the series, the author felt compelled to go online and defend it against hateful fans.

It’s no secret that many fans did not like She-Hulk. Tatiana Maslany’s She-Hulk wasn’t meant for everyone, but fans didn’t think She-Hulk had to twerk with Megan Thee Stallion in an episode, but the writer claims the series was probably the most comically accurate MCU series.

Slott didn’t stop there and went on to beat Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron man (2008) who argue that fans offended by twerking should be more outraged by Stark’s playboy mannerisms in the film, as he lets the flight attendants dance on a pole for the fun:

People upset about #SheHulk twerking for fun with a celebrity that *she* liked… …somehow NOT having a problem with Tony Stark having a stripper pole on his private jet in IRON MAN 1 – with women that Tony Stark paid to dance for *his* amusement. Spare me this newfound outrage.

Tony Stark definitely started out in the MCU as an arrogant narcissist, but he eventually became the hero that everyone loved. He didn’t have the superpowers to be the hero the universe needed to defeat Thanos, but he did. She-Hulk hasn’t found her place among other superheroes yet, but her series shows that she’s still learning how to be a hero and a lawyer — something some might consider impossible — and it looks like She-Hulk is in a similar place to Iron Man.

The world knows about their identity and has tried to exploit them for who they are, but fans can’t seem to compare the two in the same way. It’s true that She-Hulk isn’t as enjoyable to some fans compared to Iron Man. Slott has a good point that people won’t argue with besides saying that the MCU has come a long way, but in 2008 no one would have cared about it appearing in the movie.

Now, people wouldn’t allow that scene to appear, but it’s been 14 years since the MCU started and counting She-Hulk wasn’t well received, that doesn’t mean the female superhero won’t do well in her next outing. Maybe the fans just need a few years to warm up to the character and the series and eventually the fans will love the series.
