She-Hulk may have actually died after facing Thanos during Civil War II. Spoilers for Immortal Hulk No.34 are ahead…

In Al Ewing’s run of the Immortal Hulk – which employed something of a horror direction – the recurring and potential threat of the titular protagonist has been the One Below All: An entity that represents not only the embodiment of destruction but a dark reflection of creation.

As highlighted by CBR, a recent issue of Immortal Hulk (No. 34) by Ewing (with guest artists Butch Guice, Tom Palmer and colors by Paul Mounts), suggested that a certain Hulk actually perished prior to the events of Civil War II. Yes, it seems that She-Hulk actually died temporarily before being revived.

Did She-Hulk actually die in Civil War II?

This issue is told entirely from the perspective of Samuel Sterns aka The Leader – one of the Hulk’s most formidable and notable foes – as he details his colorful history with Dr Bruce Banner and his Jade Giant alter-ego. It also describes his origin story and his run-ins with the classic Avenger over the past 15 years.

However, The Leader also revealed his connection with the One Below All – after he was brought back to life many times – and the fact that he kept tabs on Jennifer Walters, theorizing that she might have died during her scrap with Thanos ahead of Civil War II.

During the second civil war within the Marvel Comics continuity, before Thanos was eventually taken down by the heroes, the Mad Titan killed War Machine and put She-Hulk in a coma (as shown in Civil War II No.1). However, now it would seem that she temporarily died before being resurrected as the result of The Green Door – a key part of the series where the gamma-enhanced individuals are capable of being resurrected.

The One Below All, created by Ewing and Joe Bennett, made its first appearance in Immortal Hulk No.5. It is a deity and one of the most powerful in Marvel Comics, only second to its opposite; the master and sole god of all creation of the entire cosmos (including the multiverse) – the One Above All. The One Below All is a deity in the Below-Place capable of manifesting and taking control of gamma mutates (who manifest their mutations through gamma radiation exposure) possibly even She-Hulk.
