She-Hulk: Attorney At Law: Who is Mallory Book?
Dropping a lot of truth bombs on She-Hulk: Attorney At Law Episode 5, Mallory Book is another lawyer at GLK&H and she just represented Jennifer Walters in her successful case against Titania and the trademark on the name, "She-Hulk."
Bringing in some sass and fashion into the series, Mallory Book first appeared on She-Hulk: Attorney At Law Episode 2 where Dennis Bukowski wouldn't share the details of the case to her, thus, the case gets referred to Pug.
In the comics, Mallory Book has a huge reputation being "the face that never lost a case," and seeing what she did in She-Hulk: Attorney At Law Episode 5, she looks like she would never back down, not a single inch from her high heels.
Mallory Book boasts an impressive legal career in the comics. She got her law degree with a magna cum laude finish at Brigham Young University, won Ms. Utah, recruited by GLK&H, and no opponent has ever won against her.
Book and Walters are rivals in the comics where Mallory would usually sabotage Jen in any way possible, even making Jen feel as if she wasn't a lawyer at all. In the series, however, they seem to have a professional relationship being co-workers at GLK&H.
Is she friends with Jen? Well, in She-Hulk: Attorney At Law Episode 5, it seems so, but who knows? This may change anytime.
