Hulk #22/Incredible Hulk #609 Open Thread

‘World War Hulks’ kicks off with ‘Hulk’ #22 and ‘Incredible Hulk’ #609, so I am combining both titles into one convenient open thread…

From Marvel: “WORLD WAR HULKS BEGINS! The FALL is over. Long wage the WAR. Red Hulk and Banner have failed, and their worst nightmares have come to kill them. Will they die fighting M.O.D.O.K. and his army of Hulks, or die by the hands of the Hulked-Out Heroes? Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness begin the end in this first chapter of WORLD WAR HULKS.”

From Marvel: “WORLD WAR HULKS CONTINUES! ‘Planet Hulk’ was big. ‘World War Hulk’ was bigger. Now with ‘World War Hulks’, the Marvel Universe explodes with the biggest emotional story ever to hit Bruce Banner and the Incredible Hulk! Following the mindbending twist ending of “Fall of the Hulks,” everything Bruce Banner knows has been turned upside-down — and everything he’s ever desired may be just a heartbeat away. Written by Greg Pak (PLANET HULK, WORLD WAR HULK) and drawn by Paul Pelletier (WAR OF KINGS, FALL OF THE HULKS: ALPHA), don’t miss the insane action and non-stop revelations as Skaar, Son of Hulk, enters his most brutal battle, Bruce Banner faces his greatest temptation, and the secret identity of a certain scarlet smasher is finally revealed!”

Facebook comments:

  1. Very, very intriguing concept.

    I must admit that I am surprised no one hit upon this earlier. And frankly, this was probably worthy of a major Marvel crossover.

    But since this is contained to Hulk titles, the concept is given surprisingly short shrift. Wolver-Hulk is especially uninspired.

    Hulk #22 does have some major revelations of Red Hulk and Red She-Hulk, both of which are rather disappointing and cliched.

    Incredible Hulk #609 does not include Wolverine at all, but deals with the Banner side of the story. Again, quite interesting, but I personally don’t buy how much smarter Banner is than the rest of the greatest intellects.

    Anyone else?
