'Rick And Morty' Scribe Jessica Gao To Write Marvel's 'She-Hulk'


Outsiders - November 09, 2019
The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Emmy award winner Jessica Gao has been hired to develop and lead the writing team on She-Hulk, the Disney+ series from Marvel Studios. Gao won an Emmy for her work on Adult Swimís Rick and Morty.

Gao is the first to be hired for creative development for a series since it was announced by Marvel head Kevin Feige at Disneyís D23 Fan Expo.

She-Hulk is Jennifer Walters, an attorney and cousin of Bruce Banner, aka The Hulk. An emergency blood transfusion from her cousin gave Walters her powers but unlike Banner/Hulk, She-Hulk was able to keep her intelligence and personality when she Hulked out. The She-Hulk character was the last major character to be created by Stan Lee.

... When Tony was drunk at a podium, it was during the events of Avengers Disassembled that I touched on in my previous comment in which I listed every single instance of Tony falling off the wagon, complete with the issues of reference and context, because I am knowledgable on the character and have read his comics.

It happened in Avengers #500 (2004). Tony had the floor at a United Nations assembly and he suddenly became drunk and threatened the Latverian ambassador, which cost him his job as Secretary of Defense. The reason he suddenly got drunk despite not having had a drink was because Scarlet Witch made him magically drunk as part of her nervous breakdown when she caused the Avengers' disbandment.

For reference, Norman Osborn became America's "top cop" in 2008. You're mixing up two different stories four years apart, despite the fact that in a previous comment I had already laid out how did Osborn get to Tony's position and clarified it had nothing to do with Tony's sobriety, or lack thereof.

it's been a while since I've read, ill have to go back.

If memory serves me right, Tony was drunk at the podium giving a speech, it was then he was relieved of his duty and replace with Norman Osborne. I may have to go back, but I thought that's what happened.

I'm just countering misinformation. That it involves my favorite character being mischaracterized does provide some motivation, yes. And also that you did berate another user with "Have you ever read a comic with him?" when, to be honest and without ill-intent, I'm kinda asking myself this.

As for Dark Reign, it had nothing to do with Tony's alcoholism. The Skrulls infiltrated the Earth without anybody knowing, andTony took the fall because he was basically in charge of the superhuman community during this time so technically is was his job to see this coming (again, despite the fact nobody did). The only reason Norman Osborn took his place is because he was in the right place at the right moment, and was the one who dealt the final blow to the Skrull queen on live TV.

I do agree that Tony was not comedic until he entered the MCU, and it's a pity. At least his characterization survived until 2015. It was with Brian Michael Bendis' run that Tony effectively became an imitation of RDJ's portrayal of the character. Previous writers had managed to keep him more or less in line with his pre-MCU characterization.

This is really important to you isn't it? He's not a drunk "dick". But he was never as comedic until he entered the MCU. Also I'm pretty sure Tony making a drunk error is what lead to Norman Osborn taking over with the dark avengers....

1) Iron Man #167 (1983)

2) Iron Man #308 (1994)

3) Fear Itself #4 (2011)

4) AXIS #5 (2014)

5) Tony Stark: Iron Man #9(2019)

Those are all the times Tony has fallen off the wagon. I'm not sure whether or not to count Avengers Disassembled, when the Scarlet Witch made Tony magically drunk for a few moments, but he didn't actually ingest anything and there didn't seem to be any repercussions. Number 2 occurred as a result of Tony being possessed by VOR/TEX, and Number 5 occurred due to Tony being brainwashed. This leaves us with only three slips-up in which the decision to drink was actually in Tony's hands. And one of them is Number 4, which occurred because Tony's moral compass had been magically inverted, so he wasn't in the right mind when he made the choice. And Number 3 wasn't much because Tony was tempted, but rather because he offered his sobierty as a "tribute" to Odin.

To sum up, Tony has genuinely slipped up only two times in the40 years the character has been battling alcoholism. And only one of them came from an actual place of temptation and inability to refrain himself.

Is that really enough times to call him a "drunk dick"? Is that really?

I've seen tony slip up in the comics enough times. My point was that there are different incarnation of the same characters, based on writers, plot(PIS), time-period, relevance and what the general public are interested in. Some vary drastically, some do not.

Tony Stark was not a drunk dick.

His substance abuse has always been contained to the specific storylines in which he suffers a relapse (which are only a handful), he is not in a constant state of either intoxication or withdrawal, neither he's constantly bouncing back and forth between soberty and inebriation.Two of the images you posted come from the same issue,Iron Man #128, when he first confronts his alcoholism (which is also the first issue when it's established, 16 years after his creation, so it wasn't always a part of the character), and the other one (the "if I wasn't so wasted") comes from What If? #33, not to mention the image is taken out of context. He's saying he's wasted because Doctor Doom had just absorbed almost of all the power from his armor, not because he was drunk. And what's funny is that at a point later in this issue he's actually shown refusing to drink despite his predicament (his predicament being that he has been left stranded in old-timey Camelot).

He wasn't a dick either. Before Brian Michael Bendis turned him into a flanderized version of his MCU counterpart in 2015, Tony was always portrayed as a thoughtful, stern-but-not-cold, and level-headed person, very capable of inspiring leadership. Even at the low points of his characterization, like Civil War, Tony was shown with good intentions at heart, and constantly torn by having to make hard choices.

Like me, in what way? Unwilling to co-op the first opinion that comes along, eat crap and call it ice cream, be bullied into towing the company line?

Whatever gets you through the night. But for what its worth, being "like you

Once again, ONE ASPECT of the character. What, do just look at the pictures?

Lol, I just disproved you. Iron-man was constantly battling his addiction to alcohol.. That's what made him interesting. He was dealing with his own #$##. Have you ever read a comic with him? Cause if you are just going to play devils advocate, pick a side that's harder to prove.
