J. Richard Stevens begins the collection with “Of Jungle Queens and Amazons: Marvel’s She-Hulk as Post-Structural Feminist Icon,” considers the contemporary transformation of another action heroine, She-Hulk, from the jungle queen archetype. Stevens emphasizes her humanitarian mission, the strength of her voice against the masculine conventions of superhero narratives, and the ways in which her visual image challenges traditional sexual objectification.
