I don’t swear often after reading a comic book but I did this time! I almost couldn’t even believe what I had just read! I try to keep the reviews light and don’t give too many exact details because I want you to read the books yourself so keep that in mind when you read the review for this insane issue!
We pick up in the past with Captain Fortean flirting with Betty Ross. We immediately are brought back to the present where we last left the Hulk facing off against the new Abomination. Dr. McGowan is freaking out that Fortean has released the Abomination in a populated area. The new gamma infused creation doesn’t know anything but killing – there is no other “human” side to this freak. Even worse, when the Hulk went to fight this creature it does not go well…
Immediately, Abomination swallows the Hulk’s fist and then regurgitates acid, burning the Hulk’s fist off! Even worse, Hulk’s healing factor doesn’t seem to be helping at all. Meanwhile the new Abomination calls out for someone to kill him! If there is no Rick Jones – no human side at all – who is asking to be put out of their misery?
Shadow Base soldiers converge on the area to clean up the mess that their new creation is making – but cleaning up just means the soldiers kill anyone who witnesses the carnage! That is until Jackie McGee and the Harpy show up. No matter how much firepower the soldiers brought there really is no match for the Harpy’s speed! She rips through the armed men in mere minutes, tearing them limb from limb!
Fortean doesn’t seem to fazed as he just watches the Harpy rip her way through the army! Then she follows a scent until she comes across the grizzly scene where the Hulk’s arms, legs and eyes have all been melted from acid! Thank goodness the Harpy is here to save him, right? Yeah… not so much.
She claws the Hulk’s chest open and tears out his heart – all while the Hulk asks Betty “why?”! It’s one of the most insane things I’ve read in the Hulk’s history and I almost couldn’t look away!
