The Incredible Hulks

Post by MLP* on Sat Mar 31, 2012 9:03 am

Picked up the first issue of The Incredible Hulks on a whim. Smile

The Hulk has certainly changed since my day ! There's now a whole army of them and it's more of a space fantasy than a superhero comic.

I guess it's a tribute to the enduring nature of the character that it lends itself to this kind of re-invention. I think it's a bit of a shame though that supporting characters like Betty Ross and Rick Jones have been Hulked up.
Takes away from the uniqueness of the character. Can't really imagine Spider-Man's entire supporting cast suddenly getting the same super powers.

I dislike the Hulking up of Rick and Betty, but I must admit I like the Red Hulk. It's curiously appropriat that Thaddeus Ross, the man who hates the Hulk more than anyone and for no rational reason, should himself become a Hulk.

i've been working my way (slowly) through the hulk books via trade staring when pak took over. i've really enjoyed them. (planet hulk was up there with the end and future imperfect in terms of all time hulk stories, in my opinion.) i haven't quite gotten to incredible hulks yet, but i am curious to see what goes on there.

One of my absolute favorite characters. I haven't been reading them in a while, but I hope it's past the whole "Samson" thing.

Sadly, Doc has just been pretty conclusively killed off in the 'Red Hulk' book. His angry shade attempted to return from the dead but was banished by Thunderbolt Ross and Dr. Strange...

I'd get upset, but this being comics, I just have to wait until he's brought back.

It IS stupid, though.

Your cynicism appals me. Don't you know that these days, dead is dead?

Well, unless you're Bucky. Or Jean Grey. Or the Basilisk. Or...
