Let’s have a little fun and discuss some of the more graphic, violent, sad, or just plain awkward moments that have plastered the Hulk history. Be it a passing meeting between spouses of a gruesome scene that nobody saw coming – this year I’ll have you squirming in your seat!
To understand the relationship between Marlo Chandler and Mr. Fixit is to delve into insanity. Fixit was not a nice person. Every foe was ridiculed and every friend was turned away. He only tolerated Berengetti because he kept him in the lap of luxury and paid for XXXXXXXL pinstriped suits. While Fixit still enjoyed a lady’s company – it wasn’t like he turned into a puppy dog for a short skirt! Enter, Marlo.
Marlo, from her introduction, seemed like a smart woman who didn’t take any guff from anyone – which is odder on why she fell so hard for Joe Fixit. In Web of Spider-Man we see just how touchy Ole’ Joe can be when Marlo shows up unannounced:
Of course, things only get worse after Marlo gets caught in the Warzone’s crossfire:
And of course, Fixit responds in the most appropriate manner:
What was so great about Fixit was also what made him such a bastard and unlikable. Fixit was all action, didn’t really mince words, was crass and rude and we loved it all – which is what made his treatment of Marlo that much harder to take. We liked how he humiliated his opponents but Marlo didn’t deserve such an abrupt shutout. She certainly did deserve someone to care about her – which is why it was so nice to see her land with Rick Jones years later. Not that that ended well for her…
