In the She-Hulk comics, Walters receives a life-saving blood transfusion from her famous cousin, causing her to undergo a gamma mutation that allows her to transform into a bigger, stronger, greener version of herself while retaining his intelligence.

Unlike her cousin, Walters embraces her She-Hulk persona almost immediately, even going so far as to practice law and date her in her encumbered form.
