What the hell was Fear Itself all about? I mean, I read it and I can’t tell you completely… I remember this event actually littering the comic shelves and not really moving. Of all the events I think this one was the least well received – not to mention they gave the strongest being on Earth a hammer… a freaking hammer – what the heck does Hulk need a hammer for when he has his fists!
Of course, this did have positive effects – like the new Defenders run we got. I loved it. But the event itself? Pretty cringe-worthy.
Eat plenty and enjoy the day. Enjoy friends or family or both – even if you’re alone take solace in the fact that you’re emulating what the Hulk has always wanted! No matter the company you keep eat a whole lot!
I will admit I don’t remember everything about the Red Hulk series – but one of the most glaring things I do recall is that Thunderbolt’s mustache burns off when he transforms. It’s one of the reasons his identity was able to be hidden for 2+ years. The other glaring issue with the Red Hulk making a comeback in a new Avengers series is that… well, last we saw the Red Hulk he was “cured” by Doc Green.
Is this Marvel ignoring its own continuity again or do they explain this regain of powers somehow – and in doing so why he is able to keep that bangin’ porn ‘stache?
Either way, look for the US Avengers coming in 2017.
I am still on the fence about checking this series out – but I am leaning more to reading it – She Hulk is, after all, the only one who SHOULD take this mantle.

Just saw this set announced for the 2017 season – it includes the Green and Red versions of the Hulk and She-Hulk! The best part of the whole set is the figures – but the vehicles are pretty great too – look for it on the shelves of your local shop!
Last week we had a moment from the ’97 Annual – we’ll keep it going with the Hulk getting ripped a new one by the Gladiator. The Hulk facing off against cosmic characters has always been a tricky gamble. While the Hulk is the strongest one there is dealing with a character with such enormous powers such as Nova, Silver Surfer and Firelord. So, when the Hulk faced off against Gladiator I know many people were wondering how it would go down.
The Hulk and Gladiator were able to trade devastating blow after devastating blow – with a kill shot by Gladiator with his eye beams right to the Hulk’s chest. We were given a shot of Gladiator’s point of view which showed the Hulk’s open gaping chest wound:
Of course, that didn’t stop the Hulk. The fight continues on and gets even nastier – but check the issue out for yourself to see what happens. You won’t be sorry!
In 1997 we all know the Hulk never had a child – but in the Annual that year he comes face to face with little boy that everyone is convinced IS his child. When Doc Samson brings the boy to the Hulk the Hulk reacts in the most inappropriate way possible:
Blame his upbringing, blame the fact that his father didn’t treat him very well, i.e. abusing him, killing his mother right in front of him, etc, etc… blame the fact that the Hulk was always the more abrasive side to Bruce Banner – blame whatever you want – but ultimately the Hulk treats this boy – well, this alien “clone” of sorts, a remnant from the Trojan War – but no matter how you slice it this has to be in the top ten of worst things to say to your alien copy, dna replica, clone copy sort of thing. It could totally screw him up!
