A Month of the Leader – Day 4

How can you not use a cheesy line like “Follow the Leader” when you have a villain called the Leader?

Son of Hulk #2 (2010)

Son of Hulk #2 of 4

Hiro has landed on K’ai with no real explanation on how or why.  He saved the people there from the dreaded Psyclops – but now Hiro is looking for answers.  First, he resurrected the fallen people of K’ai – and as the people revered him as a God – he told them not to – he told them that he is not to be worshipped – he just wants them to rid their world of the Old Power.  Back on the Endeavor the team is ready to head out – maybe to help rid the Psyclops off K’ai – although they have no idea they aren’t a threat anymore.

They land deep in the ocean and have to avoid being eaten – but Arturus has a seizure and is no use anymore – and Carl has to save them – although he is not waterproof.  Pretty hilarious moment there.  Mari notices all the Psyclops are dead, their ships are destroyed.  She thinks the people of K’ai have done this too – but Carl doubts it.

Hiro wants the people of K'ai to rid their world of Old Power

Meanwhile, Hiro sends Axeman Bone out to find and kill any other Psyclops.  Hiro continues to talk to Bone’s daughter about the Hulk’s influence on this world.  He still isn’t sure who took his body and dropped it on this world.  Just then some of the K’ai people ask to speak to Hiro.  He sends them away, saying that he doesn’t want to be there anymore – and then Bone’s daughter plants a sloppy one on Hiro.  A kiss you perverts!  Just a kiss!

Hiro gets to first base...

Meanwhile, Axeman finds Carl, Mari and Arcturus – Art is dying.  Carl saves Mari from being blown away but Mari is no slouch herself and begins to kick some Red ass.  Hiro shares his visions with Bone’s daughter.  He tells her of their future – she doesn’t want to hear it – Hiro even shares his feelings with her – saying that he would love to spend the days showing her how much he trusts her – and she wonders if trust is all.  He tells her that he has seen their doom – which soon will be revealed.

I gotta tell you – really digging this mini.  They truly handled this part of the Hulk Universe perfectly – from issue #1 of Skaar: Son of Hulk – to this here.  Just a really solid read.  Grade B+
