Synopsis for "Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Awesome Andy But Were Afraid To Ask."

This story is a reprint of the comic
She-Hulk Vol 2 #14.

On the Moon of Titan, She-Hulk has just finished adjudicating over the trial of Starfox and now tells her husband, John Jameson -- aka the Stargod -- that she wants to annul their marriage. Jennifer explains that the only reason why they got married was because they were hit with Starfox's powers. Although John refuses to believe this, Eros insists that it is true. He explains that he used his powers on two couples the day that Starfox was at Timely Plaza: Jennifer and John, as well as Mallory Book and Awesome Andy. This comes as a massive shock to Jennifer, as it explains the strange relationship between Mallory and Andy over the last while.

Meanwhile, on Earth, Awesome Andy walks the streets of New York reflecting on his past life. He thinks about how he was loved by Mallory Book and how great their romance was. This all changed when he shut off his mimicking powers to reveal that he had copied Starfox's powers and was unintentionally using them to make Mallory love him. As soon as he turned them off she renounced their relationship, feeling incredibly violated by the situation. No longer thinking of himself as an individual anymore, Andy walks past the Baxter Building and thinks back to when he was first created by the Mad Thinker. He thinks about all his battles against the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, the Avengers, and even Captain America and how they all ended in failure. Years later, the Thinker decided to make some improvements to the android's mimicking powers allowing him to imitate to the point where he could duplicate the skills of those around him. In order to test out the capabilities of these new powers, the Mad Thinker kidnapped Jane Foster in order to instigate a battle with Thor. Sure enough, when the Awesome Android was pitted against the thunder god, the android was able to mimic Thor's worthiness and lift his hammer, Mjolnir. However, this backfired on the Mad Thinker, as it awoke sentience in his creation, one with noble intentions. Sensing the change in his adversary, Thor then instructed the Android to stop his master and free Jane.

Andy now had a mind of his own for the first time, but was all alone. One day he happened upon the offices of Goodman, Lieber, Kurtzberg & Holliway. Then owner Holden Holliway took Andy in as a pro-bono case and helped clear his name of all the wrong doing he did as the Mad Thinker's slave. Grateful, Andy took on a job working for GLK&H where Andy made new friends and enjoyed his new life. He recalls how Mallory was the person who gave him the tablet that could allow him to transmit his thoughts. He then thinks about how everything changed the day Titania smashed Timely Plaza. Almost destroyed, Andy discovered a fear of his mortality and worked trying to help rehabilitate Mallory, eventually falling in love with her, leading to the heartbreaking end. His recollections over, Andy returns to his apartment to pack up his things. Hearing his roommate Two-Gun Kid and Mallory returning to the apartment, Andy hides. He overhears Mallory try to convince Matt to stay, and convinces him by telling him that she needs him and tossing aside her crutches and walking to him.

Andy then goes to Central Park where he has a daydream about being with Mallory. In this dream he can actually talk and he removes his block-head to reveal his true face underneath. Mallory is horrified to see that it is the face of the Mad Thinker. With this dream ending, Andy then walks to the Empire State Building. There he doffs his clothing on the observation deck and then leaps off the building. Instead of falling to his destruction, the Awesome Android mimics the flying ability of birds nearby and flies away. Andy decides that until he figures out who he is, he will never come back to New York City.

Meanwhile, Jennifer and Zeta-9 return to Earth to find that John Jameson has not joined them. She explains that John decided to stay in space for a while to think things over. When Zeta presses on the issue more than she likes, Jennifer tells her that this is a private situation. Going back to the office, she discovers that Dottie got fired and that everyone appears to be leaving, including the Two-Gun Kid and Awesome Andy. Jennifer rushes to the Excelsior apartments to discover that Andy has already left, leaving behind his tablet which reads "goodbye". Going back to her apartment, Jennifer finds movers taking out boxes. At first she thinks Pug is moving out, but learns that they are her own things. Going into her apartment to see what is going on, she finds Clay Quartermain of S.H.I.E.L.D. waiting for her. Clay tells Jennifer that she is being moved to the helicarrier because she has just been drafted by S.H.I.E.L.D.

Synopsis for "She-Hulk: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D."

This story is a reprint of the comic
She-Hulk Vol 2 #15.

Weeks Ago

In the early days of the superhero Civil War, She-Hulk joins Iron Man, Yellowjacket, Ms. Marvel, Mr. Fantastic, and Tigra in taking down a Doombot rampaging through New York City. The battle is quickly won and in the aftermath, Doc Samson asks Jennifer to continue her therapy. She-Hulk doesn't think it's necessary, even though Samson points out that she is spending all her time in her Hulk form. As they discuss the situation, Mr. Fantastic and Iron Man privately confer with each other on their plans for She-Hulk now that they have secretly exiled her cousin, Bruce Banner, from Earth. With crowds cheering their victory, the heroes bask in this first positive response since the Stamford disaster. When She-Hulk asks Iron Man if they will continue to be superheroes or if they'll be forced to become S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, Iron Man assures her that won't be happening.

Now

Aboard the S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier an alarm sounds and She-Hulk quickly gets into her uniform, angry at Tony Stark for not coming through on his promise as she has just recently been enlisted as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent. As part of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s new Hulkbuster unit, Jennifer meets with her fellow agents, Clay Quartermain and an LMD named Agent Cheesecake on the top deck of the helicarrier as they are approaching their first target. They are part of a team that is out searching for the Hulk, but instead of Jennifer's cousin, they have found his long time for the Abomination instead. Even though she feels as though she is in over hear head she dives off in a flying S.H.I.E.L.D. suit to the ground below. In Reno, Nevada, the Abomination has taken a break from his rampage to have a meal and watch figure skating in a sports bar. Suddenly, the broadcast is interrupted by a S.H.I.E.L.D. emergency message warning people to evacuate the area, tipping the Abomination off to what's happening.

When the Abomination goes outside, he is attacked by She-Hulk, but the villain is more than confident that he can defeat her as he views her as being beneath him. While the battle rages, Clay Quartermain oversees the evacuation of civilians while Cheesecake prevents looting. Meanwhile, the She-Hulk turns the fight around on the Abomination thanks to the fact that she was trained to fight by Captain America and Gamora. Although she is gaining the edge in combat, her ability to fend off her attacker only makes him stronger. As such, she puts in a call to Doc Samson for advice on how to defeat Blonsky using psychology. Samson informs her that the Abominations gamma mutation is a reflection of his self-hatred. She uses this to play into the Abominations' poor self-image, mocking him for choosing the sports bar because an attractive woman would never touch him. This cuts the Abomination emotionally, distracting him long enough for She-Hulk to land a knockout blow.

With the Abomination contained, Jennifer thanks Samson for his help, but hands up on him when he tries to get her to talk about her own feelings. In the aftermath of the battle, She-Hulk makes it known to Clay Quartermain that she has separated from her husband. Sure enough, the two hit it off and spend the evening together. As Clay Quartermain sleeps, She-Hulk gets up and thinks about she only is this promiscuous when she is She-Hulk. Although she thinks that she can do whatever she wants whenever she wants, she wonders why that despite that, she doesn't feel grounded.

Synopsis for "Gamma Flight"

This story is a reprint of the comic
She-Hulk Vol 2 #16.

In the Canadian wilderness, Wolverine is hunting the Wendigo staying downwind from the creature as he stalks it. The cannibalistic monster stumbles upon a campsite in the middle of the frozen wilderness and tries to attack the woman set up there. Wolverine swoops in to save the woman when he suddenly recognizes her scent and holds back. He then distracts Wendigo long enough for Jennifer Walters to transform into She-Hulk. When she knocks the Wendigo aside, Jen asks Wolverine if he is also here on behalf of S.H.I.E.L.D. However, Logan explains that he is actually here at the request of a local Sarcee tribe. As the two battle the monster, Clay Quartermain and the rest of his Hulkbuster unit are setting up a perimeter around the area to keep the Wendigo in one area until they can subdue the monster. When Agents Cheesecake and Crimson ask why they are not fighting the Wendigo with She-Hulk, Clay points out that this battle is way out of their league. Suddenly, they are interrupted by the approach of some Sarcee tribe led by Elizabeth Twoyoungmen, the sorceress known as Talisman. She tries to use her former connections to Department H to try and get S.H.I.E.L.D. to stand down so they can assist Wolverine in capturing the great beast in the woods, but Quartermain refuses, saying that they have the situation well under control. However, Talisman is merely amused at such a bold statement. Meanwhile, the battle against Wendigo is not going so well as She-Hulk is distracted by the innuendo implied when Wolverine mentions that all of his bones are coated with Adamantium. This allows the Wendigo to slash open her stomach, putting her on the sidelines until her body can heal the damage.

At that moment in New York City, at the offices of Goodman, Lieber, Kurtzberg and Holliway, Mallory Book becomes annoyed when yet another client has quit on her. She is also surprised to see that Dottie, the secretary, as been fired and replaced with Mr. Bobo, a chimpanzee. She demands to speak to Artie Zix, however, he tells her that he is in an important meeting and can't talk. Zix continues his conference with mysterious alien beings who are angered that the She-Hulk has been seen in the presence of Earth's Watcher yet again. He apologizes as he couldn't monitor the situation there due to security, but assures them that he can keep an eye on her while she is working for S.H.I.E.L.D. Mallory is also disturbed to see that Stu Cicero doesn't seem interested in figuring out how some new comics fit into continuity. However, she puts aside her concerns when the Two-Gun Kid arrives to take her out on a date.

Back in Canada, She-Hulk is berated by her Jennifer Walters personality for the mess that she has made her life. When she insists that Jen Walters and She-Hulk are the same, her mind points out that she has fully healed. She then rejoins Wolverine in battle. While Wolverine is glad to hear that She-Hulk has a healing factor, he points out that Wendigo does as well, making Jennifer realize they have a long job ahead of them. While not far away, Talisman insists on being let into the battlefield so she can assist Wolverine in containing the Wendigo. Crimson assures her that he has the magical skills to contain the monster. However, she points out that she can cure the Wendigo. Intrigued, Clay radios in to the Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. but is told that the Wendigo must be captured. Refusing to allow this, Talisman attacks Crimson. While back in the midst of the battle, Wolverine has She-Hulk throw him in a Fastball Special. This allows Wolverine to rip right through the Wendigo and remove his heart, causing the great beast to collapse. With the creature's healing abilities pushed to the max, they then begin figuring out how to contain the monster. While back in New York City, Mallory and Two-Gun watch a play of William Shakespeare's "Midsummer's Night Dream". The production makes Mallory remember being under Awesome Andy's control and she has to leave. When the two exit the theater they are accosted by a woman who recognizes Book, as she is in every tabloid in the country over her love affair with the android.

Meanwhile, in Canada, the Wendigo is contained by S.H.I.E.L.D. while Wolverine convinces Talisman that they know what they are doing. In the aftermath of the battle, She-Hulk tries to pick up Wolverine, but he isn't interested as he has heard that she slept with the Juggernaut. She denies this and angrily wonders why people think she has. While back aboard the S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier, the technicians inform the Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. that the Abomination is contained, the first step in a new initiative called Project: Achilles.

Synopsis for "Shock After Shock"

This story is a reprint of the comic
She-Hulk Vol 2 #17.

In the comic book reference library of Goodman, Lieber, Kurtzberg, and Holliway, two of Stu Cicero's assistants are complaining about the wasted value of showing a massive S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier across a two-page spread of a comic book. When Stu suggests that instead of that they could feature a page of two nerds whining about it, his assistants begin to believe that something is different about Stu.

Meanwhile, She-Hulk continues to hunt down old Hulk foes as part of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s new Hulkbuster unit. Along with Agents Clay Quartermain, Crimson and Cheesecake they capture the Glob, some Toad Men, the U-Foes, and Zzzax before returning to base. There they are met by S.H.I.E.L.D.'s resident inventor, Gaffer, who is not happy to see the She-Hulk aboard the helicarrier. This is because Jennifer is the first superhero responsible for taking down a S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier, ruining their perfect record. They then report to Tony Stark, the new director of S.H.I.E.L.D. With the information from the latest Project: Achilles captures, Tony insists that he be debriefed by She-Hulk, much to the chagrin of Clay Quartermain. While down below, Gaffer brings the containment unit carrying Zzzax and gets a status report on how they are doing with the other Hulk foes they have captured. As they discuss the difficulty they have experimenting on non-corporal beings, the two scientists fail to see a surge of energy leap out of the Zzzax containment unit and strike a control panel.

Back at the offices of GLK&H, Mallory Book is furious that her relationship with Awesome Andy has been plastered all over the tabloids. She meets with Arthur Zix and insists that they sue the publisher, but Zix declines to do so. This angers her even more, and Mallory vows to get her supervillain client base back or else there will be hell to pay. While back on the Helicarrier, She-Hulk and Tony Stark have just finished fooling around in bed. Jennifer asks him how he can get away with sleeping around without getting a negative stigma attached to him. Before he can answer, the automated systems come to life and try to blast them. As She-Hulk disables the weapons, Tony gets into his Iron Man armor and they head out to investigate the cause of the attack. While in the mess hall, the rest of the agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. find the helicarrier's defenses come to life, this includes Life Model Decoys like Cheesecake. While in the hanger, She-Hulk and Iron Man are suddenly attacked by the S.H.I.E.L.D.'s fleet of flying cars.

As Iron Man tries to fend them off, She-Hulk is approached by what appears to be Nick Fury. This Fury explains that the ship is under the control of Zzzax, including every Nick Fury LMD. Suddenly, Jen is swarmed by an army of Fury LMDs, all repeating various phrases that Fury has said in the past. It's then that Zzzax begins gloating over his ensuing victory, as he suddenly begins releasing the captured Hulk foes. Back in New York, Mallory Book goes to the Bar With No Name to confront the villains there over dropping her as their lawyer. They all mock Mallory for her relationship with Awesome Andy, leading to the Two-Gun Kid attacking them. After the fight is over, Mallory points out that the Bar With No Name has a strict no violence policy and she wasn't in any danger. Although this didn't do much to help her with her problem, she decides that she needs to do something big to win back her reputation. The Two-Gun Kid, however, doesn't like the sound of that at all. Back on the helicarrier, Clay Quartermain gets down to the lab, and is surprised to see Gaffer and the other scientists safe and most of the captured villains knocked out. Gaffer informs Clay that the weapon developed as part of Project: Achilles was a success, although Vapor and X-Ray managed to escape.

Gaffer quickly repairs the flaws in the Zzzax trap and tells Clay that he needs to isolate the creature and attack him. Meanwhile, She-Hulk has trashed all of the Fury LMD's while Iron Man tries to regain control of the ship by direct linking into it. When Clay arrives and tells them what's going on, Jennifer realizes that Zzzax will try and take over Iron Man's armor. Her hunch proves correct and as the energy creature tries to jump into the armor, She-Hulk redirects the line into her trap, capturing the villain. With the battle over, Jennifer is berated by Gaffer for the LMDs that she destroyed. Suddenly, one of the decapitated Fury LMDs begins talking about sending her cousin Bruce on a mission. Jen believes that this LMD might hold the key to the mystery of the Hulk's disappearance.

Synopsis for "Illuminated"

This story is a reprint of the comic
She-Hulk Vol 2 #18.

Aboard the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier the Hulkbusters are alerted of a new gamma energy signature in New Mexico. As Clay Quartermain summons the team, She-Hulk is nowhere to be found. When Clay contacts her by radio, She-Hulk refuses to join on the mission because she is investigating what a severed head of a Nick Fury LMD might know about the disappearance of her cousin, the Hulk. She contemplates who she can trust to bring the LMD to be examined. She suddenly realizes who she can trust. She heads to Timely Plaza, home of her old law firm, Goodman, Lieber, Kurtzberg, and Holliway. There she is warmly greeted by her old coworkers except for Mallory Book. When she asks how they can mine the data in the severed LMD head, Arthur Zix tells Jennifer that he can do it, but it will take some time. Meanwhile, the Hulkbusters have taken off for their mission without the She-Hulk. However, Clay Quartermain is unimpressed with her replacement, a LMD Sexpionage agent named Beefcake.

Back at the offices of GLK&H, Zix begins to probe the mind of the LMD. When "Stu Cicero" suggests that they try using the severed Mad Thinker robot head they have in storage, his co-workers remind him that it is a bad idea and question why he is acting like he has never read a comic book before. Naturally, this is not Stu Cicero, but Ditto in disguise to hide Cicero's disappearance from the office on behalf of Mr. Zix. Eventually, Zix manages to access the LMD's memory and finds a recording where the LMD has convinced Bruce Banner to go on a mission in space. No sooner have they cracked this video file is it detected by Amadeus Cho, who has been trying to hack into the file himself from his laptop computer.

Meanwhile, the Hulkbusters have tracked the gamma signature to one of Bruce Banner's old secret labs. Inside, instead of the Hulk, they find his long-time foe the Leader. Furious at being discovered before he could unleash his latest scheme, the Leader boards a massive suit of armor to attack the intruders. While back in New York City, Arthur Zix manages to get through yet another encrypted file thanks to a little help from Amadeus Cho, who leaves the coffee shop he is working in to initiate the next part of his plan. At that moment, Jennifer sees footage of the Illuminati exiling the Hulk into space. Seeing those responsible, particularly Iron Man, makes Jennifer furious and she storms off. While at the same time, the Hulkbusters manage to incapacitate the Leader's war machine and take him into custody. The victory leads to much fanfare back at S.H.I.E.L.D. headquarters as they think that Quartermain and his crew captured the Hulk. Iron Man returns to the helicarrier shortly thereafter to celebrations. Before he can correct them on the matter, She-Hulk arrives and demands answers from Stark about what he did to her cousin, the Hulk.

The two battle it out while Iron Man tries to keep Jennifer from revealing the truth to the other men. She-Hulk eventually overpowers Iron Man and demands to know what he intends to do when the Hulk comes back from his exile. Stark explains that he found a solution and pricks her on the neck with something that makes her pass out. When Jennifer wakes up, she is shocked to discover that she has been stripped of her powers. Iron Man then shows her some of the beings that the Hulkbusters captured, now in human form. Tony explains that the entire point of Project: Achilles was to find a way of stripping Hulk-level threats of their powers. This includes Jennifer, now that she has stood in his way. However, the former She-Hulk warns Stark that she isn't powerless to stop him and as she is being dragged away by S.H.I.E.L.D. agents she warns him that she will use her powers as a lawyer to sue him.

Synopsis for "The Gamma Defense"

This story is a reprint of the comic
She-Hulk Vol 2 #19.

Jennifer Walters wakes up in the penthouse apartment at Atlas Towers loaned to her by the Thing. Having been stripped of her powers by Iron Man, she vows to get her powers back by taking Stark and S.H.I.E.L.D. to court. When she gets ready for her day and goes into the elevator she is surprised to find Mallory Book and the Two-Gun Kid. When she explains that she is staying in Ben Grimm's penthouse, Mallory believes that Jennifer is sleeping with him now, she bases this assumption on the fact that Walters had previously slept with Tony Stark. Later that day, Mallory Book is taken to Gamma Base One where the Leader is being held prisoner since his capture by S.H.I.E.L.D. After putting on the necessary protective gear, Book is taken to the Leader's holding cell where she states her interest in representing him in court.

Later that day at the offices of Goodman, Lieber, Kurtzberg and Holliway, Jennifer Walters is angry to learn that Mallory is going to be representing the Leader in court. To make matters worse, Jennifer has been subpoenaed as a character witness due to her own experience as a gamma mutate. Meanwhile, down in the basement of the firm, the comic book researchers are trying to make sense of the Leader's current state by going over old comics. When Stu Cicero tells them it doesn't matter since they are comics, it is the final straw that outs him as an impostor. Attacked by his coworkers, Ditto is forced to finally reveal his real identity after days posing as Stu Cicero to hide his disappearance. Soon the trial of Leader is underway in the ruins of New York City, that had just survived an attack from the Hulk. Soon the Leader is brought to the courthouse by the Hulkbusters along with his lawyer, Mallory Book. Book assures the Leader that although he is assuredly evil, the trial is going to go much differently than everyone expects.

Inside, the prosecution brings up various witnesses of the Leaders crimes, and each time Mallory Book has no questions for each one. When it is her turn to being calling witnesses the first she calls is Doc Samson. Samson testifies that those mutated by gamma rays typically take on the form of their darkest desires. He explains how Sterns exposure. in particular, transformed him from a simple minded laborer into an insane genius. She then calls Jennifer Walters to the stand and has her testify about her own transformation into the She-Hulk. Jennifer walks into Mallory's trap when she talks about how She-Hulk is like Jennifer but less inhibited. This leads Jennifer to having to answer, to the court, all the men she slept with as the She-Hulk. When Mallory brings up her one night stand with the Juggernaut. Jennifer denies it, however, Book has comic book evidence that proves it. This delights the Leader, who finds this revelation hilarious. Mallory then has Jennifer admit that she was addicted to being the She-Hulk as she intentionally chose to remain the She-Hulk as often as possible. Later that evening, back at the Thing's apartment, Jennifer thinks about who she can talk to about the situation. She decides to call Augustus Pugliese.

Pug comes right over and Jennifer is surprised by his grown out hair and beard. The two begin to talk about her identity crisis. The two create a list of benefits of both sides of Jennifer's personality. Pug insists that he is there as a friend only and after they share a dance and complete the list he leaves. Jennifer notes the one thing she and the She-Hulk have in common: neither back down. The next day Jennifer confronts Mallory Book on the steps of the courthouse and warns her that she will find a way to ensure that the Leader does not go free. As the Hulkbusters bring the villain up the steps, the scene is attacked by a massive ship that unleashes a horde of the Leader's Humanoid androids. Although the Leader manages to get free from his bonds, but only does so to order his Humanoids to stand down. Sterns allows himself to be restrained again, vowing that he will win his case.

While back at the offices of GLK&H, Lewis and Chas force Ditto to come up to the office of Arthur Zix to get answers as to what happened to the real Stu Cicero. Zix admits to replacing Cicero with Ditto, but explains that his time on Earth is about up. When they accuse him of killing Stu, he tells them that he didn't kill Stu, but sent him away. Telling them that he banished Cicero to Duckworld.

Synopsis for "The Clock is Ticking"

This story is a reprint of the comic
She-Hulk Vol 2 #20.

At the offices of Goodman, Lieber, Kurtzberg and Holliway, Arthur Zix notes that he only has two hours of time left. With Lewis, Chas, and Ditto subdued, Zix decides to call in the rest of the staff. Outside of his office, Mallory Book is being congratulated for the not guilty verdict in the Leader trial, while Jennifer Walters is dealing with John Jameson who has given up his guise of Stargod to try and get Jen to come back to him. Jennifer is not interested starting over and forces John to sign an annulement of their marriage. Zix then informs them that he needs to talk to Mallory, Jen, John, and the Two-Gun Kid in his office. Once there, he erects an energy barrier and disarms everyone before Zix reveals that he is Rigel Unit Zeta 9. He shows them a clock with a little over an hour left. He tells them that this meeting will be of cosmic proportions and if he cannot resolve the issue they will all be destroyed. Jennifer asks where Stu Cicero is and Ditto tells her that he had been banished elsewhere.

Meanwhile, in the middle of the Florida Everglades, Stu Cicero returns to his home through the Nexus of All Realities. His arrival draws in the Man-Thing and as Stu tries not to be afraid the creature is warded off by its long time associate Richard Rory. When Richard asks how he passed through the Nexus and got there, Stu explains how his employer Arthur Zix had banished him to Duckworld. There he quickly tries to disguise himself among the population and quickly finds Ducktor Strange, that realities Sorcerer Supreme. Although the Ducktor is incredibly drunk, Stu convinces the mage to cast a spell to send Stu back to his home reality. Richard offers to give Stu a lift, but after confirming his past history with both She-Hulk and John Jameson he decides to take his van and leave him behind.

Back in New York, Zeta-9 explains that he has been enlisted by the Recluses, the alien beings that Jennifer presided over against the Watchers in order to maintain their anonymity. In that case, Jennifer decreed that the Watcher named Zoma be silenced for all eternity. However, the Recluses feared that Jennifer might reverse the decision forced Zeta-9 to watch over her to ensure she didn't. To this end, Zeta-9 created his Arthur Zix identity to do so and Holden Holliway gladly gave up his chair at GLK&H to Zix so he could focus on tracking down his granddaughter, Southpaw. He explains that he has been watching their every move, which upsets Jennifer and John as even their private moments together. Zeta-9 then explains that he must resolve some lingering questions before time runs out in order to complete his program. The first question Zeta-9 has is regarding how Jennifer once attempted to alter history by warning Hawkeye of his impending death. Jennifer points out that she failed to do that as Hawkeye still died.

Hearing this, Two-Gun reveals that Hawkeye has since returned from the dead. He tells how Hawkeye read Jennifer's note and decided to send out video recordings to all his friends in the event he died. Since he is now back, Clint enlisted the aid of the Two-Gun Kid to stop the delivery before they could get sent out. While they manage to stop the mailman from delivering the majority of them, the one that went to She-Hulk went out. Because it was a video of Hawkeye professing his love to Jennifer, Hawkeye was too embarrassed to say anything to her afterward. Hearing this elates Jen because she believed her plan worked. However, the Two-Gun Kid points out that it was actually something called the "House of M" that brought Hawkeye back from the dead. This causes Jennifer to lament how her actions never effect any change. This leads to angry recriminations from Mallory Book, who points out that their whole situation is because of her actions. Zeta-9 then turns his attention to John Jameson to ask what happened on Titan before they left, as he was unable to record that as well.

John explains that when he and She-Hulk met alone to discuss their marriage, he told her that he would renounce his Stargod powers if she stopped being She-Hulk and focus on their marriage. She-Hulk had explained that their marriage was a sham perpetuated when Starfox used their powers against them. When he says the real Jennifer Walters wouldn't say that, She-Hulk reverts to human form and insists that their marriage is over and she is done with it, handing him back her ring. John tells Zeta-9 that from there he went into space and had some adventures before eventually renouncing his powers and returning to Earth. Because the Recluses want to be sure that John will never become Stargod nor try to resume his marriage with Jennifer, he agrees to sign the annulment papers. Meanwhile, in Florida, Stu's ride breaks down, but now that he is back in cell range he manages to call the mail room at GLK&H and has Whiz Kid pick him up. As they zip back to New York, they pass by the Awesome Android who has shed all trace of his Awesome Andy persona. He soon arrives at the hideout of the Mad Thinker and is reunited with Southpaw, who has been hiding there since she escaped the authorities. The Mad Thinker goes over the Android and explains that it erased all of its memories of the past and traced him back by locking onto his brainwaves. He then tells Southpaw that they now have to begin planning for his next scheme.

Back in New York, Zeta-9 then has Jennifer confirm that Tony Stark had stripped her of her powers. She also mentions how she was retired from the Magistrati after helping the Living Tribunal decide if he should destroy their universe in favor of a newer more "ultimate" reality. Jennifer convinced him that this universe, regardless of how complicated it was, is still a fun place to be.

Synopsis for "Another Me, Another U."

This story is a reprint of the comic
She-Hulk Vol 2 #21.

After his brief exile on Duckworld, Stu Cicero and his colleagues are going to catch up on comic books that have been released in his absence. Lewis and Chas complain about the lack of regard for continuity when they suddenly run into She-Hulk battling the Rhino. This is an impossibility since Iron Man stripped her of her powers and the Rhino has been apprehended. When they ask She-Hulk what's going on, she claims to have settled the situation with Tony Stark privately and got her powers back. However, Lieutenant Stone of Code: Blue approaches She-Hulk and asks her who the President of the United States is. When she gets the answer wrong, he identifies her as an "Alpha" and gasses her, then orders her men to take She-Hulk and the Rhino prisoner.

As it turns out, this She-Hulk is not the Jennifer Walters of this universe, but another reality called Earth-A. After she is arrested, this alternate She-Hulk is locked up with various other costumed beings from this reality who have been posing as various deceased or de-powered heroes and villains. They are all vacationers from Earth-A that purchased a vacation package from Interlocking Technologies that saw them sent over to this reality through an atomic resequencer to gain the powers and abilities of their counterpart in this reality. The entire project is run by Interlocking Technologies owner Albert DeVore. When this is learned by the offices of Goodman, Lieber, Kurtzberg and Book, Mallory Book, the newest chair with the firm calls in DeVore to represent him in any pending secret identity theft suits lodged against his company. When Book asks where Jennifer Walters is, Stu Cicero informs her that she is down at the jail questioning her double.

At the jail, Jennifer grills her counterpart pointing out that she has no place in this reality of superhumans and is in a heap of legal trouble. However, before she continues, Jennifer asks her double one important question: did she sleep with the Juggernaut. When the alternate She-Hulk confirms this, Jennifer is happy that now she has proof that she did not have a fling with the supervillain. Their meeting is interrupted when the Two-Gun Kid comes into the cell and tells them that the double of the Wrecker is on a rampage in the city and they need She-Hulk's help. Since Jennifer's powers have been shut off, she agrees to post her double's bail so she can coach her from the sidelines. During the ensuing battle, the phony Wrecker is easily defeated and taken into custody. Jennifer hands him her card and offers to represent him at trial. When it is established that Jennifer "retired" as She-Hulk, her double from Earth-A points out how boring her life on her world is and she would miss being able to do this every month.

Meanwhile, Augustus Puglises has returned to Timely Plaza and is surprised to see the changes that have happened since he has been gone, namely Mallory Book becoming a partner. He passes by a number of cubicles where heroes from this Earth are confronting their Earth-A counterparts over the problems they have caused on this world. He then crosses paths with Mallory Book as she is taking a call from Titania who is asking for legal representation. When Book takes the case, Pug warns her not to cross that line, then tells her that they need to talk. Meanwhile, in another room, Reed Richards is working on a device to send all the visitors from Earth-A back home. Just then, Jennifer and She-Hulk arrive with the Stephen Strange from Earth-A. As Jennifer berates Reed for working with Tony Stark, She-Hulk decides to go looking around. She comes across Pug warning Mal about getting revenge. Telling her about the potion that stripped him of the love he felt for Jennifer. Hearing this strikes She-Hulk silent. Meanwhile, Jennifer continues to confront Richards about all the things that he did for "her own good", such as keeping her mental block a secret, shooting her cousin into space, and Iron Man infecting her with nanites that block her powers. Fed up with Reed's excuses, she grabs her double and storms out.

The two go to a karaoke bar where Jennifer gets really drunk and decides that she will go back to Earth-A while her double stays on Earth since she is basically the She-Hulk everyone wants anyway. They are soon joined by Mallory Book who insists that GLK&B will need her in the future, but Jen insists that her double will fit the bill perfectly after she spends a few months catching up on. Later, back at Timely Plaza, the visitors from Earth-A are sent back home. Jennifer also decides to go through with her plan of going to that reality. She says goodbye to everybody and enters the portal. However, Reed Richards suddenly has an idea and uses the atomic resequencer to pull Jennifer back. This expunges the nanites from her body, allowing her to change into the She-Hulk once again. With everything back to normal, the She-Hulk from Earth-A gets returned to her proper dimension. With that out of the way, Stu Cicero informs everyone that he is leaving the law firm to get a job at Marvel Comics.

On Earth-A, the Jennifer Walters of that world catches up with her boyfriend Augustus Pugliese and tells him that she went to another dimension where she discovered that nobody there loved her as much as he does. While on Earth-616, She-Hulk and Pug go for lunch, and she calls him her best friend. Pug remarks that this is that way it was probably meant to be.
