Happy Monday! I am excited that it’s December – and I wish I was going to start the month off with a bang – but instead I thought I should review the latest Hulk comic that I wasn’t able to get until Saturday. It’s official – Loeb is writing this book with gimmicks only to sell it! Now I have proof to back that up – do you want to know what it is? Okay then, here it is… the fact that “Mr. Fixit” not only did nothing for the story but ALSO didn’t even last this whole issue! He just turns back into the green Hulk out of nowhere – back to the green Hulk when it was convenient!
So here it is… The story picks up right where the last one left off. With Fixit being confronted by Sentry and Ms. Marvel. Fixit tosses Moon Knight into the air – Sentry goes after him and Ms. Marvel stays behind to beat up the Hulk – which she does. By the time you turn the page it looks as though the Green Hulk is back – and no, Loeb gives no explanation as to why – but after Moon Knight dispenses pleasantries with the Sentry or… burns his face with stars… he returns back to the scene where the Green Hulk is beating Ms. Marvel. Look, I know the Grey Hulk was never as strong as the green – but he wasn’t chopped liver like Loeb makes him out to be! Moon Knight slips a Hypersonic into Green Hulk’s ear to take him down – Sentry comes along and knocks Hulk into a tower and almost knocks the whole thing down. Of course, Hulk gets partial blame for knocking the tower down when all he really did was get hit into it. Sentry and Hulk are about to battle when Ms. Marvel asks them to help saving all the innocent people. Then, Moon Knight calls their attention to the fact that the Wendigo hybrids are still destroying and eating the people of Las Vegas. Take a look in that last splash page and see if you can find the shot of one of the Wendigos who have ripped off some poor guys arm.
Then we join She Hulk and the Lady Liberators who are fighting Red. By the way, when Loeb tries to rename the Grey Hulk – or Fixit – Fulk or Grulk, well, let’s just say it’s a good thing I lost my hair already because I would’ve wanted to tear it out at that moment. Hey Loeb! The Hulk is the Hulk! No one needs to rename the Hulk – like they do your stupid creation the Red Hulk – so get off it! Sorry, I had to get that out.
Anyways, the ladies are not fairing well – but Valkyrie saves She Hulk while Thundra shoots the Hulk in the face. Which would’ve been cool except that she shoots paste at Red. That’s what he says. Paste. Then she shoots him again. She Hulk is saved from falling by Pegasus. Is it just me – but She Hulk has handled landing a fall that big before. She Hulk then jumps off Pegasus and lands on the Red with a “She Hulk Smash!” and knocks Lincoln’s face off Mount Rushmore. She continues to choke the Red Hulk as Valkyrie stabs him right through the chest. That doesn’t even stop Red as he gets up once again and threatens the ladies again – but he is interrupted by the arrival of The Invisible Girl, Spiderwoman, Storm, Black Widow, Tigra and Hell Cat.
Now, the book is still split in half. That sucks. Grey Hulk and Green Hulk change between characters without any reason. That sucks too. They Hulk gets his butt handed to him in his own comic. Nothing seems to even phase Red – and the fact that he’s still around – REALLY sucks. The only thing that doesn’t suck is the great art work – but it’s not enough to save the book. Comic gets another F.
