Comic Speculation #14: Red She Hulk Key Issues

If you have not noticed, all Hulk family characters such as Red Hulk, Brawn and of course She Hulk, have taken off in prices. The only remaining character is Red She Hulk.

Currently, she is still used in the Immortal Hulk series. However, there is no MCU rumors about her. This is something that I think will change in the future. If the Red Hulk and She Hulk appears in MCU, it will be just a matter of time before she joins the fray.

In this article, I will be doing a benchmark analysis to see how much profit potential there is for this character.

Hulk Vol 2, #14

Date of Publication: 2009
Sale number: 77,373
Incentive Ratio: 1 for 10

Key strengths of this book
1. First cover appearance of Red She Hulk


This incentive cover for Hulk Vol 2, #14 is the first cover appearance of the Red She Hulk. She doesn’t appear in the story at all so it is just a cover image of her.

This is very similar to the Captain Marvel Vol 7, #17 2nd print cover. That was the first time that we see Kamala Khan as Ms Marvel before her full appearance in All New Marvel Point One. However, we will not be bench marking against that book as that is too optimistic.

Instead, a more reasonable estimate will be those 2nd prints that have the character’s first cover appearance. Some examples include Thanos Vol 2, #13, Venom Vol 4, #13 etc.

The minimum should be at least $40-$50 if Red She Hulk is introduced into the MCU.

Hulk Vol 2, #16

Date of Publication: 2009
Sale number: 56777

Key strengths of this book
1. First full appearance of Red She Hulk


While Red She Hulk made a last panel appearance in Hulk Vol 2, #15 akin to Hulk #180, this is the issue which she made a full appearance.

Thus, I will be using this issue to compare against the first appearances of other Hulk family members.

The table shows that there is some room for Hulk Vol 2, #16 to move but it is not clear just how much room there is.

While the first appearance of Red Hulk costs twice as much as the first appearance of Red She Hulk, he has a better appearance ratio. However, Hulk Vol 2, #1 has 150% more copies available than #16.

Putting these factors together, Hulk Vol 2, #16 should at least be priced between $35 and $50 if Red She Hulk is introduced into the MCU. This means there is a potential for a 100-200% gain for this book, conservatively speaking.

Unfortunately, Red She Hulk can never reach the prices of Amadeus Cho due to both supply and demand factors. Red She Hulk is neither as popular nor is her first appearance has a low print run.

There is a variant for this book but it is already priced out of range. I would focus just on the regular edition if you want to invest into Red She Hulk.


This pick is the not usual long shot or left field kind of ideas. It just highlight a potential undervalued book in the Hulk family, given that all others have increased in prices recently.

Have a great Sunday!
