Who picked this up yesterday? Pretty darn good issue. It’s nice to have some good old fashion Hulk stories after the crap they have been shoveling at us this year. The first story, titled Your Lucky Day, takes place right after the events in The Incredible Hulk #344 – Ground Zero – my favorite Hulk story. So, She Hulk is having her class reunion (Hey! The old ’96 cartoon had an episode where Jen Walters went to her class reunion! Weird.) Anyways, she sees Mr, Fixit stroll through the casino and recognizes him as her cousin. Fixit tells her she has the wrong man – he still doesn’t want to be recognized – she says she knows it’s him. Two mutants come to Las Vegas – they say fate brought them there – and start causing trouble. She Hulk takes Discordia while Hulk takes on the guy whose power is transforming fear into power. It’s pretty sweet. As they tangle Fixit starts to hear Banner’s voice inside of him. He begins to take out his anger on the mutant. He gets angrier and angrier when he believes Banner is calling him an accident – and Hulk says it was fate. Just as he’s about to lose control and beat this mutant to a pulp She Hulk stops him. She says she knows he’s not her cousin – because her cousin wouldn’t be so mean.
This story is such a refreshing change of pace from the drivel we’ve been served lately. It’s violent, and funny (I like Hulk’s new name for She Hulk – which is She-Me) and each of the characters actually act like the characters they are supposed to! B
This comic also features 3 other stories – each featuring a different Hulk member – Pak writes the Skaar story, which I wish I liked better but I just can’t get into it. The Daughter of the Hulk story is okay – turns out Hulk’s bastard daughter has some compassion for males – which she attributes to her Dad. But if you want to hear about these stories you should get the comic and read it. I’m just going to give a review of the first story – but what did you think of it?
