Stan Lee really should have just politely declined being part of Hulk #600. This story is a quick secondary story after the waste of space that is Loeb’s story. I understand it’s a throw away, gag – but really, why waste time and energy on this ridiculousness. Alright, very short and sweet – Hulk and Crimson Idiot are fighting – WendiHulk comes in for absolutely no reason I can see – and Galactus shows up. The people ask him to kill Red to save the Hulk… Galactus asks which is which. They say that Hulk is green ,Red Hulk is Red – Galactus counters with “Sorry, I can’t help you. I’m color blind.”
It’s better if you follow this story with a rim shot.
I should also add that Hulk: Gray #1 is included in this issue – but it seems more like a promotion for the Hardcover rather than a way to reward fans with a key issue from Hulk history. I mean, really, Hulk: Gray was… good – but that’s it. It was marginally good at that. You couldn’t tell if this was supposed to take place in current continuity or not – because Loeb wrote Iron Man into this story – but as you’ll remember – the first time IM and the Hulk met was in Avengers #1 – so it looks as though Loeb didn’t bother to do any research… big surprise. Anyways – the addition of Hulk: Gray gets and F in my book – like I said – how about rewarding Hulk fans for once Marvel?
