| Synopsis1 = The She-Hulk has been selected by the Magistrati of the Living Tribunal to be a judge in the court of the universe. Taken to the Star Chambers with the delinquent known as Southpaw, Jennifer Walters is taken to an infinite closet to get the appropriate attire for her next case on the planet Skardon. There, her belief, Recorder Zeta-9 finds what she needs: a boxing outfit and gloves. He explains to the two women that the planet Skardon settles disputes through combat. Soon, Pip the Troll is sent to teleport Jennifer and Southpaw to back to Skardon.

When She-Hulk arrives on the alien world she is told who her opponent will be: the Elder of the Universe known as the Champion. Jennifer recalls this Elder as he once came to Earth and battled many of Earth's strongest heroes, including her friend the Thing. She-Hulk doesn't like her chances as everyone previously chosen to battle the Champion was defeated. Pip explains how he and his comrades heard that the Champion was about to enslave the planet Skardon, and got involved, bringing the universes most powerful warriors, but to no avail. She-Hulk is shocked to see that among the injured include Gladiator, Beta Ray Bill, the Silver Surfer, and Drax the Destroyer. She is then brought to the last fighter, Adam Warlock, who is just barely hanging on. Warlock warns She-Hulk about the Power Gem that the Champion uses to augment his strength, making him an unbeatable foe. When Jennifer asks how she can beat someone like that, Warlock believes that as a member of the Magistrati, She-Hulk will find a way. With that, Adam Warlock dies and his body wraps itself in a regenerative cocoon that will ultimately bring him back to life.
  +
  +
Soon, She-Hulk is brought to the arena to battle the Champion and he is insulted that they have brought a woman to fight him. The Magistrati point out that gender is not one of the terms of the matches and remind him that if he refuses to battle the She-Hulk, he forfeits the match. Soon the fight begins, and She-Hulk is beaten so badly the Magistrati stop the fight as she will surely die if she continues. She-Hulk objects to the fight, saying that it isn't fair. The Magistrati agree and organize a rematch within three months time, much to the protests of the Champion. When he learns that he has no choice in the matter, lest he feel the wrath of the Living Tribunal, the Champion concedes but vows to utterly destroy the She-Hulk. As She-Hulk is carried away, she thinks back and recalls a moment sometime earlier when Pug pointed out that She-Hulk's strength is exponential of that of Jennifer Walters and realizes that she has the key to defeating the Champion. While back on Earth, Pug and Holden Holliway appease the authorities regarding Southpaw's release to make sure she is still maintaining the conditions allowing her freedom. To this end, they have Ditto pose as Southpaw for some Guardsmen who come for a surprise inspection. Appeased, the Guardsmen leave, however, Ditto is upset to break the law in this way, but Holliway assures Ditto and Pug to have faith that She-Hulk and Southpaw will return soon.

Back on Skardon, She-Hulk has reverted back to human form to train, realizing that if she gets in peak physical condition as Walters, it will exponentially increase her strength as the She-Hulk. While they are training, Southpaw decides to go out and explore the planet. When she violently takes some fruit to eat, she comes to like the might-means-right attitude of this world. However, she is soon confronted by the Champion. When he mocks She-Hulk, Southpaw vows to fight him if Jennifer loses the match. The Champion points out that since Southpaw cannot remove her gauntlet, she will not be allowed to fight in the match as no outside weapons are allowed. Southpaw goes back to the gym to sulk and when Jennifer hears about the girl's encounter with the Champion comes up with yet another way of tipping things in her favor. When it finally comes time for the match, the She-Hulk reminds the Champion about the rules regarding outside weapons and refuses to fight him unless he removes the Power Gem. They also make a wager: If She-Hulk wins, the Champion must promise never to wear the Power Gem again. The Champion agrees, but only if She-Hulk agrees to become his wife should she lose.

  +
In the ring, the She-Hulk's training pays off as her exponential strength allows her to easily overpower and defeat the Champion. With the Elder of the Universe defeated, She-Hulk is crowned the new champion of Skardon. The Magistrati then inform her that she has completed her work for them, for now, and that she is to return to Earth. Before leaving, She-Hulk tells the people of Skardon that they will no longer resolve things with violence, but with their brains. She then leaves Adam Warlock and his allies to sort things out from there. However, after Pip teleports Jennifer and Southpaw away, the people of Skardon begin fighting over who has the biggest brain, leaving Warlock and his allies with a much larger job than they had anticipated.

| Synopsis1 = This issue picks up from lasst issue's ending with [[She-Hulk]] getting told thsat the clothes she would be needing are boxing clothes, as she gets changed [[Pip Gofern (Earth-616)|Pip the Troll]] walks in on her and she threatens him, then Pip teleports himself, She-Hulk, [[Southpaw]] and Z9 to the arena where She-Hulk recognizes the [[Tryco Slatterus (Earth-616)|Champion]] as the person who severely beat the [[Thing]] many years ago. Pip then informs her that the reason they need to defeat the [Champion is because he is obusing his leadership of the planet Skardon. On Skardon the hrase might makes right just about covers it. Pip tells them that when [[Warlock]] found about the mistreatment of the Skardon people hwe attacked Champion with his Soul Gem and the the Skardonians healed him. The rules state that no weapons are allowed and that ibattles must take place in a ring. He tells them that Warlock had been finding contenders for the Champion to battle in the hopes of winning, he mentions a battle in which Champion defeated [[Arthur Douglas (Earth-616)|Drax the Destroyer]]. They then go to the medical camp where she finds the people beaten by the Chapion, including the [[Silver Surfer]]. Adam Warlock then dies and goes back into a healing cocoon. When She-Hulk and Champion eventually face off, She-Hulk is also severely beaten but claims she wants a rematch in 3 months. She-Hulk then thinks back to something Pug said before that she wasnt super strong, just stonger then she is as [[Jennifer Walters]]. 3 Months Later, back on Earth, security men from the [[Raft]] come to check on Southpaw. Pug shows them to Holden's room where Holden and "Southpaw" are waiting, when they leave Southpaw turns back into [[Ditto (Earth-616)|Ditto]]. Meanwhile on Skardon, Jennifer Walters is working out in human form when Southpaw returns home after arguing with the Champion, she mentions that she cant use weapons in a ring so it wouldnt have been a fair fight. [[Beta Ray Bill (Earth-616)|Beta Ray Bill]] mentions that they didnt let him use [[Stormbreaker]] or let the Silver Surfer use his board. This gives her an idea. The next day in the ring, She-Hulk declares the power Gem as a weapon then in a fair fight beats the Champion badly. She is declared the planets ruler and leaves Warlock and Z9 in charge as she returns home.

Synopsis for "Engagement Ring"

The She-Hulk has been selected by the Magistrati of the Living Tribunal to be a judge in the court of the universe. Taken to the Star Chambers with the delinquent known as Southpaw, Jennifer Walters is taken to an infinite closet to get the appropriate attire for her next case on the planet Skardon. There, her belief, Recorder Zeta-9 finds what she needs: a boxing outfit and gloves. He explains to the two women that the planet Skardon settles disputes through combat. Soon, Pip the Troll is sent to teleport Jennifer and Southpaw to back to Skardon.

When She-Hulk arrives on the alien world she is told who her opponent will be: the Elder of the Universe known as the Champion. Jennifer recalls this Elder as he once came to Earth and battled many of Earth's strongest heroes, including her friend the Thing. She-Hulk doesn't like her chances as everyone previously chosen to battle the Champion was defeated. Pip explains how he and his comrades heard that the Champion was about to enslave the planet Skardon, and got involved, bringing the universes most powerful warriors, but to no avail. She-Hulk is shocked to see that among the injured include Gladiator, Beta Ray Bill, the Silver Surfer, and Drax the Destroyer. She is then brought to the last fighter, Adam Warlock, who is just barely hanging on. Warlock warns She-Hulk about the Power Gem that the Champion uses to augment his strength, making him an unbeatable foe. When Jennifer asks how she can beat someone like that, Warlock believes that as a member of the Magistrati, She-Hulk will find a way. With that, Adam Warlock dies and his body wraps itself in a regenerative cocoon that will ultimately bring him back to life.
