Between food dates and demonic possessions, can romance blossom between Daredevil and She-Hulk?
In Marvel’s exciting universe, where superheroes fight not only villains, but their own hearts, one question has fans on the edge of their seats: Could the relationship between the MCU’s acclaimed Daredevil and She-Hulk be over? The screen to funny pages? Something that once seemed far-fetched now comes alive in the latest issue of Daredevil, where the chemistry between the characters is palpable, albeit with an unexpected twist.
A common destiny?
In “Daredevil #5,” the story focuses on Matt Murdock and Jennifer Walters, also known as She-Hulk, sharing a series of food dates. However, what begins as a series of innocent encounters soon takes a dark turn: She-Hulk is captured. As this twist turns their relationship into a rivalry, it could be planting the seeds for a future romance. The comic, written by Saladin Ahmed and beautifully illustrated by Farid Karami and Jesus Aburtov, plays with this tension, exploring their chemistry in depth beyond the usual action scenes.
In a plot intertwined with the mystical and the everyday, Matt Murdock, now the director of a youth home, meets an old friend named She-Hulk, also known as Father Matthews, from the dead. This encounter leads to a series of platonic lunches, where She-Hulk is revealed to be afflicted with gluttony, one of the Seven Deadly Sins. Despite this demonic possession, the comic manages to hint at a possible attraction between the two, even though Jennifer Walters is currently in a relationship.
The evolution of characters until possible communication
In the year Ever since her debut in 1980, She-Hulk, created by Stan Lee and John Buscema, has been a character that broke the mold. Jennifer Walters, Bruce Banner’s (Hulk) lawyer and cousin, is characterized by her intelligence, strength, and vibrant personality that transcends the “damsel in distress” stereotype. Over the years, She-Hulk has evolved, showing an emotional and professional depth that resonates with readers. Her relationship with Daredevil in the MCU and now in the comics reflects this richness of character, a dynamic that goes beyond the typical superhero romance.
On the other hand, Daredevil, introduced in 1964 by Stan Lee and Bill Everett, is known as “The Man Without Fear.” In the story, we see Matt Murdock as a blind lawyer struggling with injustice in both his identity and disguise. Daredevil faced many challenges and difficulties, which gave him a strong and complex character. The possibility of a romantic relationship with She-Hulk adds a new layer to this multi-faceted story, suggesting a deeper exploration of her personal relationships, something rare in her previous stories.
Romance on the horizon?
In the comic, there is a flashback between Daredevil and She-Hulk. This chemistry could be an echo of past romances unknown to fans, or perhaps a nod to MCU fans. Although the current times don’t seem very favorable for romance, given She-Hulk’s status and current relationship, the comic spends a lot of time exploring their dynamic outside of their superhero duties. This attention to their relationship can be a challenge for the readers, it shows what such a love relationship looks like.
“Daredevil #5,” now on sale, not only offers an action-packed and drama-packed story, but also raises an interesting question for Marvel fans: Will we see romance blossom between Daredevil and She-Hulk in the comics? Have you seen it in the MCU? The answer is still up in the air, but the seeds of love, or at least a wonderful rivalry, have definitely been planted.
