She-Hulk Fan Films Bring The Love

she hulkEven though Marvel Comics is the biggest comic book company around, the DC Comics characters get all the fan film attention. This week, FCT takes a look at some of the Marvel-based fan flicks that have been flying under the radar.

I believe it was the noted comic book enthusiast Shakespeare who once said “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.” Damn straight (although for the record, I’m entirely ). We guys are endlessly capable of forgetting something or other, thereby ticking off the women who love us (and even more so the ones that don’t). There isn’t a guy alive who doesn’t know what it’s like to have all that fury aimed right at him. And yet, even as we annoy the hell out of them, women love us, and now, thanks to fan productions, I have the proof.

Let me make a blanket statement here: Nowhere in the realm of fan films is the heady, bizarre mix of love and fury more readily apparent than in homemade She-Hulk movies.

Think about it. These flicks are —or in my favorite, —so, sure, if you want to turn a blind eye to the self-aware cheesiness on display, you could argue that these flicks display female empowerment, each a modern-day envisionment of a Helen Reddy song proclaiming “I am Woman; hear me roar and punch you in the face with my big, green fist.” That’s the “fury” part.

“Where is the love?” you ask (oh man, am I dredging up bad Seventies music today or what?). It’s here: You just know that behind the scenes, each one of these movies started with a guy saying, “Hey honey, you know what would be a really great idea? What if we made a movie where we painted you green and you yelled “Arrrrgh” a lot? And then we put it on YouTube so the entire world would see it? Wouldn’t that be awesome?”

And, amazingly, these women agreed. Now that is love.
