First, we are taken back to the events of TIH #600 back when Samson and the Red Hulk and Jen Walters stuck around during the explosion of the lab. We see how everyone survived – and then Lyra finally sets Jen free. Jen, weak from the constant extraction of Gamma energy being taken from her. Lyra tells She Hulk that she is there to help her – sent by Bruce Banner – and it concealed by the act of Banner blasting Lyra through three levels of the Hellicarrier.
Jen and Lyra talk about their “childhoods” and the origin – the myth and the reality. Lyra tells Jen about her confrontation with her Mother – which Jen does not take very well or lightly. She tells Lyra just how amazing Thundra really is. And then the Red She Hulk comes in and ruins the party. The emerald women take on the ruby lady – and Jen shows just what it means to be called a Hulk! The Red She Hulk gets thrown out of the ship – but catches on before she falls out. Jen tries to talk sense into her and tells her not to listen to the Leader or M.O.D.O.C.K. – and then they try to pull the Red She Hulk back into the ship – only to have her turn on them and throw them both out!
Not a bad issue – will be interesting to see where the next issue brings us. Plugged a few more holes in the sinking ship that is Loeb’s career – so that’s not too bad. The art, this time around, didn’t impress me. Grade: C+
