I think everyone knows my huge dislike for Rob Liefeld – I think he is an egomaniac who deserves all the criticisms that befall him. I usually avoid all and any Liefeld works of art but my love of all things Hulk supersede the Liefeld hate – so that is how this 1989 book based on the Canadian mutant’s life found it’s way into my comic collection. Because, as you can see below, the Hulk has a prominent place in Book One of Wolverine’s history!
Can anyone tell me who the hell the blue guy is on the bottom? I mean, I’m trying to read the label below the character but I still can’t make it out. Who wants to help me out?
I wasn’t going to bother picking up the Hulk mystery mini for the Endgame set but I was in Target with some time to waste and came across a box with 4 figures left. I took a chance and grabbed two of the boxes – shaken and weighed with the utmost precision for complete accuracy – and bought them. I opened the first one on the way to the car and saw the green skin!
I was psyched that the chance I took paid off! I went in the car and opened the other box – this was a bonus no matter what as I figured I already had the Hulk – but as a surprise it was ANOTHER Hulk! So two Hulks for the price of… well, two. But, still – two Hulks!
Rick Jones has been through a lot. I mean, for years and years the dude was helping out his friend who turns into a nasty, green rage monster despite it being a hugely thankless job. He was famous, married a woman who dated the Hulk first – not sure what that did to her body – but hey, no one here is judging. The biggest travesty was when Loeb turned our favorite sidekick into a terrible, uninspired Abomination knock-off. Thankfully he has been cured and we will not have to see this character anymore!
1st Appearance: Hulk #2 (2008)
This humongous and amazing Hulk is from Brazil. Thanks tot he generous friends on Facebook I did have an opportunity to grab one – unfortunately is was a little more than I wanted to spend – but that doesn’t change the fact that this Hulk is one of the best figures I have ever seen in my life!
While it’s not part of my collection it’s still one that I think Hulk collectors should seek out if they have the means!
The moment that the Hulk realized he isn’t just the Hulk!
Walgreens released a couple of sets for the Endgame movie. Even though I am not a huge fan of the way the Hulk was used in the movie I have every MiniMates Hulk release to date so there was no way I was going skip this one! Hulk is paired with War Machine (Don Cheadle rules!) with this set. The Hulk is wearing his quantum jammies – even with all of that I still think real dedicated Hulk fans will of course pick this up!
