The She-Droid was originally a robot created for industrial work, designed by Tony Stark. When it was no longer needed, it was sent to Stark West for recycling & repurposing. The driver of the truck containing the shipment was Jacob "Jake" Fox, who was actually on the take from mobster Nick Trask. Nick Trask betrayed Fox and was about to kill Fox without paying him for the shipment, when they were interrupted by She-Hulk trying to save her friend in her Jennifer Walters form, Jill Stevens, who was in a speeding car that had been rigged by Nick Trask and Fox was able to sneak away. During the incident, the truck was knocked over and the box containing the She-Droid broke open, revealing the hand of the robot. She-Hulk was unable to save her friend and Jill died. Because Jill had been driving Jennifer's car, it was believed that Jennifer had died and she went into hiding to stay safe from Trask and his men.
Trask re-painted the robot to resemble The She-Hulk, and used the robot to murder the three hitmen he sent to kill Jennifer Walters (she was working on a case to clear the name of Lou Monkton, who had been accused of murdering Trask's bodyguard. Trask himself had committed the murder but was framing Monkton. Walters was getting too close so sent his hitmen to kill her. This was the incident that led to Jennifer Walters becoming The She-Hulk after being shot and receiving an emergency blood transfusion from her cousin, The Hulk. It was also the reason he rigged her car to try and kill her which ended up killing her friend Jill instead and allowed Jennifer to go into hiding) and also to murder Jake Fox. Trask ensured there was photographic evidence, so it now appeared that She-Hulk had killed the hitmen and Jake Fox.
Trask then kidnapped Monkton and forced him at gun point to call Jennifer Walters (still acting as his attorney), who was still in hiding from Trask, and have her reveal her location to him. She did, believing that Monkton was coming to see her, but instead Trask sent the She-Droid after her. Jennifer transformed into The She-Hulk and was able to destroy the She-Droid. Leaving the disconnected head of the robot on the beach where she had destroyed it, it was revealed that Trask had been directing the robot the entire time, and through the eyes of the robot saw She-Hulk transform back into Jennifer Walters, revealing her secret identity.
Later, the wife of the truck driver Jake Fox, Mrs. Jacob Fox, contacted Tony Stark to find her husband, who was last seen picking up the shipment for Stark International that would eventually fall into Trask's hands.
As Iron Many, Tony went to investigate and believed She-Hulk to have murdered Fox. She-Hulk explained to Iron Man what had happened and they went to the beach and found the head of the She-Droid which cleared She-Hulk of the murder. Tony then had to explain to Jake's widow that he was dead, but lied and said he was a good man caught up in unfortunate circumstances so she could go on believing he was a decent man.
Only the hand of She-Droid appears in The Savage She-Hulk #2. The full robot is not revealed until The Savage She-Hulk #3
