Another Marvel Comic cancellations have been added a new one to the list. She-Hulk has been canceled.
She-Hulk is joining Generation X, Hawkeye, Iceman, Luke Cage, and The Unbelievable Gwenpool. All of these have been canceled, and are missing from Marvel’s March solicitations.
She-Hulk writer Mariko Tamaki broke the news to fans on Twitter saying,“I’m fortunate to have had the opportunity to write this character through some serious challenges,” she did say, in part. “I worked with an incredible team and collaborated with incredible artists on this series, and I can’t wait to tell you the stuff we are working on next!”

Editor Christina Harrington even clarified that this last issue of She-Hulk isn’t just merely Tamaki’s final issue, it is also the series finale. She thanked Senior Editor Mark Pannicia and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort,“who fought for this series from day one,” adding, “When we knew we weren’t getting another arc after 163, they let us end Jen’s arc on our terms and on terms that made sense for her character.”
Spinning out of Marvel’s Civil War II, the Jennifer Walters-led Hulk was released last December by Tamaki and artist Nico Leon. So the comic went back to it’ originial title, She-Hulk, back in August, which was apart of the Marvel Legacy branding initiative.
Brevoort did end addressing the cancellations in broad terms last week, tweeting,“It is worth pointing out again: Incredible Hulk was cancelled once. X-Men was cancelled once. Thor was cancelled once. Being cancelled is not necessarily the end of the story, nor does it necessarily reflect the value of the work.” He also added on Tuesday night,“We go through this cycle every year where weaker-selling titles get pruned. It just happens to be that moment again.”
1) I’d have to say Black Panther even though Avengers: Infinity War will be quite a thing if they pull it off. 2) We go through this cycle every year where weaker-selling titles get pruned. It just happens to be that moment again.

She-Hulk #163, written by Tamaki and art done by artist Diego Olortegu, goes on sale March 7th. Hopefully they will revamp She-Hulk, becuase there isn’t a lot of female superheroes from Marvel with their own comic book storylines.
