Like A Warm Knife Through Butter: A Year Worth of Cringe-Worthy Hulk Moments: Week 30

Let’s have a little fun and discuss some of the more graphic, violent, sad, or just plain awkward moments that have plastered the Hulk history.  Be it a passing meeting between spouses of a gruesome scene that nobody saw coming – this year I’ll have you squirming in your seat!

I mentioned before that Aaron’s run could easily be this whole list.  His run served of exactly how to lose a whole run of Hulk fans in two issues.  But I decided to choose to only pick a couple of the worst moments from Aaron’s run – and oddly, the other moment I picked comes from the same issue – but yes – I have chosen the scene of just how the Hulk managed to separate himself from Banner.  With the help of another brilliant (albeit it, evil) mind – Doctor Doom.  Doom performs brain surgery on the Hulk with… wait for it… a adamantium chainsaw.

As ridiculous as it sounds it plays out even more insane on the pages.  Under the talent of Whilce Portacio we see Doom lowering the said chainsaw to a strapped down Hulk.  The Hulk… strapped down.  Let that sink in for a moment.  Also, later in the comic Doom states that he can actually SEE the parts of the brain that belong to Banner and which belong to the Hulk.  The series only gets worse from there…

Eye-Ball Shish Kabob: A Year Worth of Cringe-Worthy Hulk Moments – Week 29

They have met many times.  They battled over and over most of the time with an obvious answer to “Who can beat who?” but in Hulk #8 the Wolverine made a move we, the readers, had never seen before pulled on the Hulk.  He shoved two of his bony pig stickers right into the Hulk’s eye balls.  We now know this wasn’t Wolverine after all – but it still doesn’t change the shock of the moment.

The Knights Who Say “Ewww”: A Year Worth of Cringe-Worthy Hulk Moments – Week 28

Half-Life could easily be one of the most disturbing Hulk villains ever.  He’s in a class all his own – and he’s in a category with a deformed, reptilian irradiated creature!  Half -Life was was already a corpse – he could drain the life out of people, which he did every night, but he didn’t have that much luck when he encountered the Hulk.

Half-Life jumped on the Grey Hulk and the Hulk responded in kind by tearing his body away from him.  Unfortunately for Half-Life, his brittle bones and weak joints were no match for the Hulk’s brute strength.  Hulk throws his limbs in every direction and that should have been the end of the grossest villain ever.

New Sideshow Hulk?

Looks like Side Show might just be releasing a new piece I might actually be interested in.  I did buy the Gladiator Hulk but that was a rarity for me.  I’m just not a fan of a lot of the pieces they’ve produced.  The image above was released today and it looks like I might be digging into my wallet and adding a new dio to the Hulk room!

Hulk Pins (2016)

I was excited to visit Disney this year – mostly because this was my children’s first visit to the magical place – but partly to see which Hulk pieces I could find at the park now that Disney owned Marvel.  I searched high and low – even at the Super Hero Depot at Disney Springs – and found very little to nothing.  I decided against the Hulk postcard depicting the cover to Annual #1.  I did find a few pins to get – and of those even one of them came from Disney.

The pin above came from the hotel we stayed at and to be sure, besides the Hulk hands, this pin was the only one I found.  I even strolled through the Lego store there and snagged a pic with the huge Hulk Lego:

The other three pins were found at the last minute at the airport.  Again, void of almost every other kind of Hulk merchandise, there were just a few Hulk pins on the racks.  My favorite are the two below.  A huge Hulk head and the 5 tiny Marvel figures, including the simple Hulk one – although the best one is the Punisher with his 5 O’clock shadow.
