But yes, I think once they realise the kind of damage they've done with these stories it's all hands on deck to try and make sure that the character isn't tainted and so on.
By contrast, She-Hulk gets a dip in sales - BOOSH! Off she goes to another decade or two of being (if she's lucky) a supporting character for the Hulk or on some team.
I suppose that isn't really a fair comparison though. Fact is, put Spiderman on a cover and you've got guaranteed sales - ditto Wolverine - and Spiderman is seldom star of a title that is wanting for sales.
Put She-Hulk on a cover and I don't think you get much of a reaction... well, maybe "who's that green chick?" And let's face it - time and again sales figures of her book have been pretty lamentable.
I agree with PAD's sentiment that She-Hulk has the potential to be the Marvel equivalent of Wonder Woman - although, that said it's not like WW exactly gets treatment on a par with Batman or Superman - but it's also very easy for me to see why Marvel give her short thrift.
She's a character who was created for the sole purpose of stopping anyone else creating a female Hulk. About the only time she seemed credible in terms of sales was under the auspices of John Byrne two decades ago and ever since then, her solo titles have languished.
I can't say it's unreasonable for Marvel - as a company seeking to maximise profits - to reallocate talent.
Which doesn't mean I like it...
