Hulk Guest Shots Vol. 21: Night Thrasher 15


Night Thrasher was a real attempt at Marvel trying to create their own Batman – more than Iron Man ever was.  Night Thrasher also had the added bonus of making the Marvel landscape a little more diverse.  The problem was that it’s a little anti-climatic when the solution to a battle is “I’ll just buy my way out of it”.  Case in point, this issue!

A depressed neighborhood with a building and a group of scientists working on the cure for AIDS is being protected by the Pantheon.  Night Thrasher and his cohort Rage show up to also protect the building from the tenants being kicked out but a misunderstanding has The Pantheon – or more importantly, the Hulk – conflicting with each other.

After a barely impressive back and forth punches Night Thrasher finally reveals that he has paid all the back rent for the organization and everything is fine and that the fight in not needed.  The issue is quite the snooze-fest to be honest.  One of the worst Hulk guest-shots to completely honest.  What a way to start the year off!  Skip this issue unless you’re like me and what them all!
