Peter David, as his time as the epic Hulk writer, like to push the envelope. None was so obvious when he decided to write about the age old question: If you had a chance to kill Hitler before he became Hitler, would you?
A boy that would grow up to bring about a new genocide was targeted by the Pantheon. Aggy, in all his brilliance, sends Achilles to kill this boy before he can grow up to be an A-Hole but also sends the Hulk to protect him? Sort of?
Well all the good that does because it turns out in the end that David wrote in a fail safe ending. The boy dies but no one kills him. Wait – that’s wrong – a lot of people kill him. Actually, they don’t even kill him – and he’s not even the real bad guy. Listen, it’s a lot to explain but just read the issue and see this little boy almost get trampled to death. Man, Peter David must be a hoot at kid’s birthday parties!
