Hulk vs. Absorbing Man SHS (2008)

Hulk vs. Absorbing Man SHS

Hulk vs. Absorbing Man SHS

How is it that Absorbing Man has landed in EVERY Hulk toy line?  I mean, he started out as a Thor villian in Journey Into Mystery #14 (Although years later Loeb would write a little story Daredevil: Yellow #1 where he put a boxer named “Crusher” Creel as the opponent to Battlin’ Jack Murdock) Imagine that!  Loeb changing Marvel continuity!  But he didn’t even appear in a Hulk comic until Incredible Hulk #125.

 But here he is once again!  Facing off against, what I can only describe as, Quasimodo Hulk.  Where did that huge hump in his back come from?  Why?  Is this Spina bifida Hulk?  And what has made him so happy?  This is the second Hulk SHS from wave 2 that I have shown.  I’m holding out on showing you my favorite of this wave till I have shown all the others.  With only two others to go it won’t be too long!  Stay tuned!
