Against her father, Hector's, wishes, Christina got involved with Daniel 'Zapper' Ridge, the ex-boyfriend and childhood friend of Jennifer Walters aka She-Hulk. Her father knew that Zapper still only had eyes for She-Hulk, but Christina wouldn't listen. She even went as far as getting plastic surgery to look more like She-Hulk. Hector perceived this as the ultimate insult, and being a brilliant scientist (and former colleague of Bruce Banner aka The Incredible Hulk), Hector built the robot War Zone to attack She-Hulk.
She-Hulk was able to destroy War Zone, but not before he sprayed her with a gas that destroyed the gamma radiation in her blood stream, which would eventually turn her back into her normal human self. She-Hulk, in her weakened state, was actually killed while fighting the villain known as the Rumbler, who had come seeking vengeance on She-Hulk's father, Morris Walters, for arresting him years ago.
Zapper's obsession with She-Hulk however, forced him to figure out a way to return her to the living. After She-Hulk awoke, Christina walked in on them hugging, and later on a monitor, saw Zapper kiss She-Hulk. She turned the monitor off before seeing She-Hulk get angry and walk away, telling Zapper he had a wife that loved him.
Hector had secretly messed with the instruments that brought She-Hulk back to life, hoping it would kill her. Instead, it turned her into a rampaging savage version of herself. Zapper figured it was a one time thing and that she had expelled the gamma radiation which caused her to go savage. So She-Hulk decided, after being asked, to do a guest spot on a daytime drama.
While filming, she was again attacked by War Zone, sent by Christina's father Hector, this time to kill She-Hulk's current boyfriend Wyatt Wingfoot. She-Hulk was again able to destroy War Zone (with Zapper's help). Christina then barged into the middle of the show (which was airing live) and accused She-Hulk of trying to steal her man. She-Hulk became angry at this point when she thought that everything that had been happening to her was a plan by Zapper to get her to come back to him, and she turned savage again and battled her cousin who had showed up to help subdue her.
Christina called her father, who arrived in his gamma tank and attacked She-Hulk, revealing it was him behind everything. The tank blasted gamma radiation which he hoped would kill She-Hulk in an overdose. Instead, she absorbed it and became even stronger and more savage. She tore the tank apart and was about to kill Hector when her father showed up and distracted her long enough for her body to expel the excess gamma radiation. Hector was arrested and put in prison.
After receiving another blood transfusion from her cousin, Christina and Zapper informed She-Hulk that they were seeking marriage counselling to work on their problems.
