Marvel Comics writer Dan Slott also chimed in.
"You wrote one of the best damn half hours of TV I've ever seen in my LIFE. I can't even tell you how many times I've rewatched 'Pickle Rick'-- just to try and take it apart and see how its engine works. Shulkie is in SENSATIONAL hands!" Slott said.
"I will try to make you proud!" Gao tweeted back.
In the comics, She-Hulk is the lawyer Jen Walters who is the cousin to the Incredible Hulk Bruce Banner. When her cousin gives her an emergency blood transfusion filled with his own gamma-irradiated blood, Jen Walters becomes the She-Hulk and is able to transform at will and also retains her own intellect and personality, unlike her monstrous cousin.
