The PAD story does sound like a Bynre type of story but still sounds fun. True without John Byrne she wouldn't be as popular.

I think he did but he had a lot against him, coming off the back of Slott and no communication between the Hulk book. But I think he did make it work towards the end I was really enjoying PAD's She-Hulk. The Lady Liberators was a fun little story in Hulk but Pad gave the feeling that this team could work, you know. That's why I was disappointed when it was canceled, not because She-Hulk doesn't have a book but because I am not going to see where PAD was going with this. Even if they did give he book more time the way things have played out, it would still have been canceled.
: A friend described She-Hulk fandom as

: more... THEY CAN.
True, it's sad really, I can understand the killing (supposed) of She-Hulk. I still don't get the hatred of Lyra, if you think about she is the biggest She-Hulk fan in the Marvel universe, how can you hate a fan.
: But really, as pointed out by others...
: superhero titles are regularly passed

: she probably had time to check stuff...
: green skinned girls have to stick together.
I am with you on this, I have been saying this, I would love a book with Jen and Lyra together. You know with Lyra, it might be just me but I think Marvel are trying to get a sort of mother, daughter type of relationship with Jen. Banner has Skaar, I think they wanted to give Jen a daughter but without the whole route of her getting pregnant and so fourth.
: That brings me back to She-Hulk's ol' pal
: Jazinda... I'd like to see her come back. I

Again this is the annoyance of the cancellation, just so much stuff to be explored. Though Jazinda hasn't quite been left in limbo, she was in S.W.O.R.D. recently. Your right most of the stuff Jen does get forgotten unless its Hulk related. Though from the spoilers I have read of the recent Hulk books World War Hulks takes place a year after the end of Fall of Hulks. While Jen was not seen, if Jen is back bigger we know what she has been doing for a year. I will give credit to Loeb and Pak for paying attention to the Jen's book and abilities. I think the current Jen needs to do it, if she is to go against an army of Hulks, let alone a Hulked out(this just adding more fuel to the fire) Ms Marvel, Storm and Invisible Woman . But this is pure speculation.
