Hulk vs. The Marvel Universe (2008)


This great compilation has a bunch of random stories where the Hulk faces off against some of the Marvel heroes.  Some of the better ones are the Daredevil #163 where Ol’ Horn head gets the ever loving stuffing beatout of him.  Also, there is the Fin Fang Foom 1-Shot, which I loved, and the TTA #’s 92 and 93 where he squares off against the Silver Surfer.  Not so much fights him – but Surfer kind of puts up with Hulk’s tantrums.  Also, FF #25 and 26 where the Hulk and Thing get into a great brawl.  But one of my favorites of this whole collection is Journey Into Mystery with Thor #112 that tells the untold storyt of Thor against Hulk when Thor asked Odin to give him his power without his famed hammer.  The other stories here is Incredibel Hulk #340 vs. Wolverine.  A mediocre fight that shouldn’t have made the cut – they didn’t even get to finish the fight!  Right before it got good Quatermain interjected and stopped it.  Lastly, Peter Parker: Spiderman #14, when Mary Jane was thought to be dead and Spiderman was trying to take on the Hulk for crashing an airplane – that wasn’t his fault – maybe the same plane from #340 – but I am not sure.  Still, a fun collection worth picking up.

Raging Thunder 1-Shot (2008)

So, The Thing fought this chick way back when called Thundra.  She is a leader of a tribe full of women who dominate her universe.  From time to time Thundra will go into another universe to fight the most powerful man in that world.  So, of course, this time she picks the Hulk.  She battles these other strong men to show her “dominance” to her people.  When she begins to fight the Hulk though, she realizes just how storng and powerful the Hulk is… and she tries still to defeat him, but Hulk never goes down, and somewhere within the fighting Thundra starts to admire the Hulk.  She cuts the transmission to her her own world and then attacks the Hulk – but in a different way – she starts making out with him.

I’m not sure if this 1-shot was brought out because of Father’s Day or not – but it ends with a female warrior that looks like Thundra destroying some men.  Then, when they show her fully, you see she has the Hulk’s greenish hue.  So now we have Hulk’s son Skaar on Sakkar and we have the Hulk’s daughter in another universe.  Man, Hulk’s a little slut, huh?
