Synopsis for "Lady Liberators, Part 1"
She-Hulk has gone to the headquarters of Freeman Bonding for some work, only to discover that there are no outstanding bounties. Emilee Freeman wonders how Jennifer could have time after she founded the Lady Liberators, but tells her that she will call if anything comes up. As Jennifer heads home, she catches a news report about the nation of Marinmer is still in crisis after a devastating earthquake. When she gets back home, she talks to Jazinda about it the political climate there. She laments over how the government has refused outside aid, mostly because those most impacted by the earthquake are from an opposing religious sect. Jennifer decides that she needs to do something and asks Jazinda for her help. She also puts in a call to the Lady Liberators. The first to arrive is Valkyrie, who points out that what they do may start a war. She-Hulk admits that is possible, but points out that her teammates in the Avengers are in no position to do anything because US oil interests in Marinmer. Soon, Thundra and the Invisible Woman arrive. With the team altogether, She-Hulk points out that all the aid money is going into the pockets of the government, run by Darqon Par, and food and medical supplies are going to waste in warehouses. The situation is made worse because of the interests of the Chinese and Russian governments prevent the United Nations from going in. With her teammates agreeing to partake on this mission, their ride arrives.
Their transport is Jazinda's ship which the Skrull pulled out of Lake Winnipeg. Since the fact that she is a Skrull is sensitive after the Secret Invasion, Jazinda has taken on the form of a Shi'ar. Using the ships cloaking systems, the Lady Liberators manage to make a landing at the airport in Marimer and begin removing the supplies from the hangers. News quickly reaches Darqon Par who is most amused by the recent development. He picks up the phone and calls the Russian President to ask for a favor. The Lady Liberators are unopposed by the guards at the airport, but soon they are confronted by the Winter Guard, who have been sent to stop the Lady Liberators on behalf of the Russian government.

Synopsis for "Lady Liberators, Part 2"
The Lady Liberators have accompanied She-Hulk to the earthquake ravaged nation of Marinmer. As they liberate the food and medical supplies kept at the airport by the country's ruler Darqon Par, they are confronted by the Winter Guard. The Guard have been sent on behalf of the Russian government to protect the interests of Darqon Par. When neither side is willing to stand down, the two groups end up fighting. The Invisible Woman tries to keep them at bay with a force field, but she is quickly incapacitated by a sonic blast from the Crimson Dynamo. As Thundra battles the Dynamo, Valkyrie battles Red Guardian, leaving Ursa Major for She-Hulk.
The battle soon begins to turn as the Winter Guard members are taken down by the Liberators thanks to some cover fire from Jazinda who attacks from inside her ship. With no other choice, Red Guardian orders Darkstar to open a miniature black hole to dispose their foes. As the women struggle to stay anchored, the Red Guardian points out that a foolish action like this could lead to a world war. However, She-Hulk refuses to allow the government of Marinmer commit an act of genocide. As things begin looking grim, some refugees from the earthquake come to the airport seeking help to dig people out of the rubble. The Crimson Dynamo trains his weapons on the people, warning them to stay back. She-Hulk points out that these innocent people are the victims of the cruel dictator that runs this country. This strikes a chord with the Red Guardian who orders the Winter Guard to stand down and help the people.
Soon the Lady Liberators and the Winter Guard are digging out survivors and distributing supplies. However, there is much tragedy and the woman are deeply upset when one of the refugees finds that her child was killed in the earthquake. As the relief efforts continue, a representative of the government arrives with an army and informs them that their leader wishes to negotiate a deal with the She-Hulk. Even though this is probably a trap, She-Hulk accepts the offer. Thundra recommends that Jennifer kill the dictator when she has a chance. She-Hulk tells her that it is on her to-do list.

After attempting to get supplies to the earthquake victims of Marinmer, the Lady Liberators earned the ire of the local government when the convinced the Winter Guard to help them. She-Hulk is invited to meet with the ruler of Marinmer, Darqon Par. She is brought into the president's mansion where she finds an extravagant feast put out for her. Darqon offers her a drink but she refuses. When she tells him off for committing acts of genocide, he points out that no leader in the world is above killing his own citizens. He admits that when he took over the government, he wanted to try to end the centuries of religious warfare that has plagued his homeland. However, the majority of the people who voted him into power have not wanted this, defending the fact that a ruler needs to bend to the will of the people. However, She-Hulk refuses to allow this to justify the death of innocent women and children. Their argument over the ethics of his rule are interrupted when the Invisible Woman, who had been backing She-Hulk up, collapses and becomes visible again. Darqon then reveals that the candles are giving out Kolokol-1 gas. Before Jennifer can do anything, the gas begins to cause her to pass out. Looking at the unconscious women, Darqon remarks the real fun can begin.
Meanwhile, in the earthquake-ravaged region, Thunder, Brunhilde, and the Winter Guard continue the relief effort. Valkyrie tries to console one of the victims who lost a child in the earthquake. This leads to an argument between her, and the Red Guardian about the causes they serve. While back at the president's mansion, Darqon Par has Jennifer Walters tied to a bed. Thanks to the gas she has reverted back to human form. He tells her that she will do what he pleases otherwise the Invisible Woman will be killed. However, before the dictator can have his way with her he is attacked what appears as his general. It's actually Jazinda in disguise and she incapacitates Darqon. She then offers to kill him for Jennifer, but she tells him that they can't just do this. However, when the Skrull woman points out that Par was just about to rape her. This angers Jennifer enough to change into the She-Hulk and almost punches Darqon's head in. The blow is blocked by the Invisible Woman who had just freed herself.
Taking control of the situation, She-Hulk has Jazinda pose as Darqon. As she sends away the guards the Invisible Woman reveals that she has figured out that Jazinda is actually a Skrull. Jennifer tells Sue that she is her best friend and not to tell anyone just yet. Sue warns her to tell the rest of the Lady Liberators the truth soon or she will. Still posing as Darqon, Jazinda gives a publicized address announcing relief efforts to be allowed in and help those in crisis before blowing her brains out. As a new leader is elected to take over the country, the real Darqon Par is dropped in the middle of the Australian Outback. When he protests this, she reminds him that the Invisible Woman isn't around to stop her from killing him. He then gives him the opportunity to learn some humanity by seeking relief from a local Aboriginie tribe.
Back in the United States, She-Hulk watches a televised address from the new leader of the nation of Marinmer and about the changes that are promised to be made. Suddenly, she is interrupted by the arrival of two agents of the Justice Department who have come to arrest her for violating international borders.

Synopsis for "Heroic Proportions, Part 1"
In the middle of a storm the She-Hulk is up against the massive form of the Behemoth...
Shackled before the United Nations, She-Hulk explains her motivations for interfering with the situation in earthquake-ravaged Marinmer. She chastises the assembly for their inaction, saying that she will accept whatever punishment they have for her knowing that she did the right thing. The assembly then begins to applaud her, but this is all a dream, and Jennifer is snapped back to reality with an announcement that her lawyer is here to see her.
In reality, She-Hulk has been locked up by the Justice Department for violating international borders. She is surprised because she hadn't hired a lawyer and assumes that this is some lawyer picked by the government. However, she is stopped mid rant when she discovers that the lawyer in question is none other than Mallory Book of Goodman, Lieber, Kutzburg and Book. However instead of coming to bask in the fall of her rival, Mallory tells Jen that she has come to represent her in court.
The Behemoth continues to pound on She-Hulk, asking if she and her friends laughed about his defeat at her hands back when he was the armored Man-Elephant. When She-Hulk says he never came up in conversation, this angers the Behemoth anew and he resumes his beating.
She-Hulk is shocked to see that Mallory has come and even more dumbfounded when Book tells her that she is free to go. Jennifer has a hard time accepting it and Book gets fed up, telling her that she is leaving in a limo in five minutes and if Jen fails to be there she will leave without them. Not believing that her release could come so easily, She-Hulk is surprised to find it true and joins Mallory in her limo. Once inside the limo, Mallory explains that she is going to represent Jennifer in court and win because she is the greatest lawyer ever. She also drops another bombshell: She is also going to try to get Jennifer's law license back.
The Behemoth continues to overpower the She-Hulk, much to his disappointment as he thought she would be a stronger opponent. She tries to tell him that she has no need to battle him as she is a bounty hunter now and has no bounty on him. However, some of the children in the trailer park watch the fight and tell her to keep fighting. This prompts the Behemoth to toss his opponent against an RV. When this doesn't cause any damage to the vehicle, the Behemoth begins to realize that he is not fighting the real She-Hulk and demands to know who this woman is.
As Mallory Book's limo takes Jennifer across town, Mallory shows her the newspaper headlines that hail She-Hulk as a hero. The news cycle has been praising her and nobody cares about the fact that she broke the law. When they arrive at Timely Plaza She-Hulk finds herself swarmed by reporters who bombard her with questions. Mallory Book steps in and tells the reporters that Jennifer will answer their questions at a later date and escorts her into the building. When She-Hulk arrives in the offices of GLK&B she is greeted by a warm welcome from all her old co-workers, including the Two-Gun Kid.
Meanwhile, Emilee Freeman of Freemand Bonding, Inc. tries to call Jennifer to offer her a new job to round up a supervillain called Femme Fatale. However, Jazinda is there to answer the phone and shapeshifts into She-Hulk so she can take the job. While back at the offices of GLK&B, Book offers Jennifer a chance to come back and work for the firm, pointing out that it will give the company a huge boost, saying that everything that happened before is all in the past.
Not sure what to do, She-Hulk calls Jazinda to tell her the news. The Skrull woman is excited, but mentions the bounty job but tells Jen not to worry about it, she has it covered. When the call ends, Jazinda believes that she is going to lose Jen. Suddenly, there is a knock at the door and the person knocking asks for the She-Hulk. Jazinda shape-shifts into the form of her best friend to answer the door, and that's when she is attacked by the Behemoth.
Now knowing that he is not fighting the real She-Hulk, the Behemoth demands to know who this impostor really is. He begins to violently beat Jazinda until she loses conciousness and reverts back to her normal form. The Behemoth is surprised to see that he had been fighting a Skrull. He tells the children watching the fight to call the authorities, and when they hail him as a hero, he agrees with them that he is a hero.

Synopsis for "Heroic Preportions, Part 2"
After assisting the earthquake ravaged nation of Marinmer, the She-Hulk has returned to the United States accused of violating international borders. However, things are starting to look up for the heroine as she is now being represented by her old rival, Mallory Book, who has also offered to get her law license and old job back. As it is pouring rain, Book insists that Jennifer stay at the guest suite inside Timely Plaza. Jen is shocked by the grandeur of the room. But suddenly she is stunned by a telepathic message from Jazinda. Needing Jen to talk to her privately, Jazinda has her send Mallory away so thy can talk. Jazinda warns She-Hulk that she has been caught and is about to be experimented upon by the United States government. She warns Jennifer to deny any knowledge of the fact she knew that Jazinda was a Skrull in order to avoid getting arrested for harboring an illegal alien. Jazinda apologizes for not being a better friend, but their contact is cut off when the doctors examining her begin giving her shock treatments.
In a panic, She-Hulk wonders what she should do and so she puts in a call to her friend the Invisible Woman. Sue agrees to use her connections the Fantastic Four has with the government to figure out where Jazinda is being held, but they are at odds about what to do with it. When agents from the NSA come to question her, Jennifer quickly ends her call with Sue. When they ask her if she knew about the Skrull that was impersonating her, She-Hulk plays dumb. Meanwhile, at the government facility, the scientists examining Jazinda kill her with the electric jolts. However, when she springs back to life moments later, head Doctor Knox tells his subordinates to get a loaded gun so he can explore this further. At that moment, Mallory and She-Hulk find themselves being transported to the facility where Jazinda is being held. The NSA agents continue to question her about her knowledge of the Skrull they captured, but Jennifer continues to play dumb.
Back in the lab, the doctors discover that each time they kill Jazinda it takes longer for her to come back to life. From the observation room, the NSA agents bring Mallory and She-Hulk to watch the experimentation. They question Jazinda who insists that nobody knew of her deception. However, when the doctors prepare to kill her again, She-Hulk can't help but leap through the glass to free her friend. No sooner is she on the ground does Manfried Haller reveals himself to her and transforms into the Behemoth. He charges at her, slamming her through the wall, taking them both outside of the facility. Before the Behemoth can resume his attack he is confronted by the Lady Liberators who have arrived to lend Jennifer a hand. While Thundra deals with the Behemoth, the others go back into the facility to rescue Jazinda. Utilizing Sue's invisibility powers, they are able to get Jazinda free from the operating table and she in turn disguises herself as the Behemoth to get away. Retreating back outside, She-Hulk pummels the Behemoth into unconsciousness. In the aftermath of the battle, she thanks the Lady Liberators for their help.
They are soon confronted by Mallory Book who informs She-Hulk that after this stunt there will be no salvaging her legal career. However, she believes that she can get She-Hulk out of her legal troubles and tells her and her allies to flee while they can. Much later, Mallory meets with the heads of Fourth Wall Enterprises to inform them that the She-Hulk project is a bust and that it should be scrapped immediately. Considering this, the heads of this organization are disappointed that this project has ended prematurely, they are sure that they will continue to assure that the Fourth Wall remain unbroken.
