(Marvel Fanfare I#48) - When She-Hulk came home to Los Angeles to be the judge in a body building contest, a woman was present in the crowd. She thought to herself – Settle your affairs with her quickly, Morris.. For by Friday your daughter will be dead. She left the press room and returned home. Saying “David! Your mother has returned, she has seen her unsuspecting younger brother and his superpowered brat!”, thereby revealing herself to be She-Hulk’s aunt, Dr. Cassandra Walters Pike. She also revealed why she hated her family, all because her father never favored her, but her brother: Even when she won a nobel prize, she wasn’t good enough for her father, all because she married a man against his wishes. But now she was ready for revenge, and took a strength building formula from the refrigerator, and gave her son David a shot of the formula.
A day after at the body building contest, Cassandra’s son David was one of the contestants, when the crowd was shocked at the over-muscled man, Cassandra yelled to David, “Kill your cousin, now!”. When She-Hulk was about to defeat Brwan, her aunt appeared and told her to stop. She-Hulk, surprised to see her aunt stopped fighting Brawn, and was knocked down by him. Cassandra ordered him to finish She-Hulk before she could get up again, but Brawn was stopped when someone shot him in the shoulder. Cassandra turned and saw her younger brother was the shooter. She yelled at him “You shot your nephew”, Morris was surprised to learn that his nephew had been turned into a monster, but Cassandra thought Morris waas jealous because Brawn had beaten She-Hulk. Morris answered “Why can’t you stop? Our father is dead!”, whereto Cassandra answers “So long as his legacy lives- His death absolves nothing!”. Suddenly Morris was knocked down by Brawn, and Cassandra finally had her two relatives defeated. She ordered her son to kill She-Hulk, but he couldn't. She made it a question of whether or not he loved her, but David still couldn't kill She-Hulk. Cassandra herself decided to finish the job, but was defeated by She-Hulk, and then the police rushed through the door, but Brawn managed to escape with his mother.

Well if there ever should be another She-Hulk solo series, I guess Cassandra is up for a little “family reunion”, come to think of it, why are all the cousins in the Banner - Walters family monsters....
