In the comics, she has an intense rivalry with She-Hulk although the show may play her differently. In the comics, Mallory has often gone out of her way to sabotage Jen’s career and manipulate her every step of the way. She used She-Hulk as a go-between to contact other superheroes and gather witnesses, which often made Jen feel less of an advocate. This was pretty obvious when she asked Jen to help her with a case only to get in touch with Ben Grimm aka The Thing from Fantastic Four. She also believed that Jen didn’t have to work for her position at GLK and H like she had to. According to her, Jen made it easy only because she was green and over two meters tall.

Some fans even think Mallory could be a possible love interest for She-Hulk on the show.
