Sometimes Comics are silly:

Okay, so in the early part of She-Hulk's first series, "The Savage She-Hulk", everyone thinks the She-Hulk is a murderer. Part of this is due to complications when Jen tried to save her friend, but the other part has to do with a robotic duplicate who was seen killing people and destroying property.

But see, apparently the people of the Marvel Universe's version of Los Angeles are really fucking stupid as the duplicate looks like this:

Now I understand hysteria and mob mentality, but don't you think amidst shouts of "It's She-Hulk, run!", *some* oversexed male would look up and notice, "Hey, isn't She-Hulk a very well developed green knockout instead of a robotic tank in a bad wig?"

I mean *honestly*.

I half expected to see armed policemen show up and not know which one to shoot because they look "exactly alike!!"

Maybe it's the smog fumes.

    Hmmmm. If I ever invent a murderous robot I will have to remember to spray paint flesh tone and put a wig on it. Everyone will just blame Dolly Parton.....

    Thanks for the tip!

    I was going to make a crack about how it's art imitating life, and the people of our L.A. aren't smart enough to tell the difference either.

    Then I realized, they'd be more likely to figure it was a movie advertisement or another dumb stunt by David blaine.

    I'm not sure which is worse, really.

    You'd think they'd look more closely at the robot...seeing as how it isn't wearing clothes...

    It looks more like Tony Stark with hsi mullet than She-Hulk.

    Brett: Yep!

    Calvin: Honestly, given LA, it probably *is* a movie advertisement or David Blaine.

    Centurion: Yeah. That's weird.

    Sleestak: That's funny, as his company did end up having a hand (unintentionally) in creating that thing...Tony's kind of vain isn't he?

    It's like looking in a mirror.

    Well it's no Robot Wonder Woman that's for sure!

    zaratustra: Heh. She-Hulk hates paparazzi.

    keeper: Honestly, if I were Jen, this would give me a "I don't look like that *really*?!" complex. :-)

    There was an episode of The Tick where a villain stole Tick and Arthur's arms and attached them to evil robots. The robots just had painted buckets for heads, but nobody could tell the difference.

    That was obviously supposed to be a comedy, but I don't know what's up with this thing.
