I am going to attempt to review this issue straight from my memory. This series continues to chug along nicely – Ewing is absolutely killing it and it. After the Hulk took down the Shadow Base I wasn’t sure where they would take this story but sure enough they have doubled down bringing in the Minotaur and Roxxon!
This issue opens with reports of Hulk supporters protesting Roxxon and thier social network in the total dumpster. We are also gifted to Minotaur’s man-scaping ritual. Even more graphic than I feel in needed, but hey, who am I? Minotaur is racking his little brain on how he can turn things around and profit off this terrible Hulk incident!
We also meet a father, a Roxxon security gaurd, who is proud of his life but laments the estranged relationship he has with his daughter. He can’t escape the thought that these Hulk demonstrators are just no good rouble rousers who deserves whatever may happen to them. I also love how the Hulk youth group is calling themselves “Teen Brigade” – a call back to Rick Jonse teen group from the 60’s.
Turns out Minotaur does have a few tricks up his sleeve as he has Roxxon churn out Hulk masks for this Teen Brigade to don while protesting. Genius! Also, don’t correct Minotaur. Just take my word for it.
Moreover, the security guard is ready to Charles Bronson a collected group of protestors outside his location. That is until he notices a familiar pair of eyes staring at him through a Hulk mask. Sure enough, it’s his daughter. The man squeezes the trigger anyways but thank goodness the Hulk is there to absorb the shot.
Minotaur does have a plan though – a plan to get someone to take the Hulk on. Someone who might be able to take the Hulk out for good. Who else than a former Hulk to take out a Hulk?
