Will The Leader Be in She-Hulk?

Comic books have not been the only medium to make use of the “villain”—a mad scientist archetype that focuses on being a selfish genius to take over and/or destroy the world. Such characters have played key roles in literature since Frankenstein first appeared in 1818, but they are not unique to any particular era; they can be found in all forms of entertainment today. These twisted prodigies remind us that without the guiding hand of conscience, science can be as destructive as any of the problems it hopes to solve. One example of such a figure is Samuel Sterns aka The Leader of Marvel Comics. Let’s check out who this character is in detail and whether or not Marvel will include this character in their upcoming project, She-Hulk?
