Jen was much like her cousin in her Hulk form, being ill-tempered and even violent (although with more self-control). However, with time, she became a fun-loving, kind, empathetic, yet feisty woman who frequently uses humor when fighting. Walters has made it clear that she prefers not to kill those she fights, especially if her enemies have already been unable to fight. She is also known for charitable works related to her own mistakes and actions, such as the disaster relief organization she aided after almost destroying a small town in her savage form.
She is known as an idealistic lawyer that has been known for championing the rights of minorities and the rights of individuals against corporations. Walters’ beliefs have sometimes led to difficulties regarding her stance on unjust laws such as the Superhuman Registration Act and her cousin’s exile to space by those she could not seek a lawful resolution from.
Jennifer has sometimes become dependent upon her powers, viewing her She-Hulk form as being better and more truthful to who she is than Jennifer Walters and opting to remain transformed as much as possible. This insistence on remaining as She-Hulk has caused problems in her relationships, such as with John Jameson, who preferred her to stay as Jen.
Despite usually being confident about her beauty and looks, Jen appreciates her bulkier forms’ additional strength and freedom. After her Celestial augmentation, she even claimed to prefer her more muscular and savage form, despite fearing she could lose control of her power.
