A writer for She-Hulk cartoons have blasted claims that Disney+ shows Lawyer is not “cartoon accurate”.
The limited series, which starred Tatiana Maslany, received some criticism from viewers for its perceived lack of fidelity to the source material and its stylistic shift from previous production in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
However, Dan Slott, a writer of the original comics, has defended the adaptation by saying that the backlash is unjustified, saying that it is the most accurate of all the MCU shows.

“Anyone who said the @SheHulkOfficial TV show wasn’t ‘comic accurate,'” he tweeted yesterday (January 2).
“I’m the guy who has written more issues of SHE-HULK than anyone else. I’ve read every single comic from every #SheHulk run. And I say, for the record, it’s the MOST comic-perfect show in the MCU.”
Slott added: “‘That’s not the point. Nobody was arguing about it. Yeah. They were. A lot.
“After posting this, literally got a post that started, “Nobody’s saying the show isn’t comically accurate dude…” Love that the goalpost is moving, because the whole “show isn’t comically accurate” thing has been going on for MONTHS. From people who have obviously never read SHE-HULK.”

Charlie Cox, the actor who plays Daredevil, recently spoke about the character’s cameo in the series, which included the superhero taking the “walk of shame” after sleeping with Maslany’s Jennifer Walters.
“There are scenes you read and you say, ‘The fans are going to love this. This is the knock-out,'” he said Digital spy.
“Then there’s things like the walk of shame, where you’re like, ‘This could go either way. This could be something the fans really like [or] it might be something that feels like it goes against the nature of what they love about the character.”
