A sugary take on World War She-Hulk

The Valdosta Daily Times fawned over an Avengers-connected storyline spotlighting Jennifer Walters, written by a scribe known for social justice propaganda. First, here's the surprising good news art-wise:
The "World War She-Hulk" story arc in "The Avengers" titles accomplishes a few things.

For starters, it provides a different take on one of her cousin Hulk's most famous storylines, "World War Hulk," but it offers the springboard for Jennifer Walters to transform the brutish "She-Hulk smash" She-Hulk back to the more famous, sleeker, super-model, humorous, brilliant attorney She-Hulk.

Just in time for the "She-Hulk" comedy series planned as part of the Marvel line-up on Disney+ later this year.

But again that's later.
So they emphasized depicting Jennifer Walters as a very lovely green skinned lady again, because of the new TV show coming up? Needless to say, basing your writing and drawing MO almost entirely on whether there's a TV show or movie in store is ludicrous and insulting. In any event, so too is the writer who penned this story:
With "World War She-Hulk," super-powered Russians take She-Hulk hostage and apply a combination of brainwashing, torture and radiation manipulation to nudge the green She-Hulk into a red-skinned, platinum-blonde She-Hulk who is triggered to start a world war with the Sub-Mariner's Atlantis as underwater ground zero.

Writer Jason Aaron takes the Avengers to its 50th issue under his pen, which includes an additional chapter involving a team led by a future Dr. Doom that includes a child Thanos.

Aaron continues making "The Avengers" a fun and adventurous title that regularly spotlights a team member in each story arc, with the rest of the team involved but playing supporting roles. She-Hulk's turn was well worth the wait.
With Aaron at the helm, after all the trouble he caused over the past decade, like when he injected social justice propaganda into Thor, why should we believe this'll be seriously fun? Especially when Aaron's never actually apologized for his past exploitations of Marvel properties to push agendas. Why, even after Mary Jane Watson was brought back to Spider-Man after more than a decade of editorial mandate kicking her to the curb, that doesn't make it any more readable at this point, and let's not forget Nick Spencer never apologized for turning Capt. America into a Hydra-Nazi several years ago.

Also, if this story is little more than an excuse to forcibly turn She-Hulk into a weapon against other heroes and goodies, again, we've had too much of that already, and coming from a writer like Aaron, it's certainly bound to be tasteless. Not to mention it rehashes a title similar to World War Hulk, written in 2007 by Greg Pak, starring Jennifer's cousin Bruce Banner, which just shows how creatively bankrupt they really are.
