Man in the Mirror: A Year of Hulk Confusion – Week 7

There might be times where we are all a bit confused – and this year we will explore the times that the Hulk has no idea what is going on. Even the times when he isn’t sure what to do or where to go… It’s a year of confusion!

We all know how it is – sometimes we just don’t look like we feel – and in this instance the Hulk is shocked and confused when he sees Banner’s face staring back at him!  Good thing he has a Hulk mask for instances just like this!

Lost Reference: A Year of Hulk Confusion – Week 6

There might be times where we are all a bit confused – and this year we will explore the times that the Hulk has no idea what is going on. Even the times when he isn’t sure what to do or where to go… It’s a year of confusion!

We all had questions about Jason Aaron’s run – especially when filled with moments like this:

And then the following fight ends like this:

Aaron has some good stuff out there – but his Hulk run is a huge black mark on an otherwise decent career.  I bet he wishes for a time machine…

Land of Confusion: A Year of Hulk Confusion – Week 5

The Hulk: Cutting Edge was a trippy book – but not just for the reader but the Hulk spent the entire issue asking questions:

It even became so confusing – with costume changes and all!

How do you fight an enemy when you can’t seem to get your bearings?  Well, it’s not easy for sure and the Hulk shows it here by constantly being unable to get a grip!

Hulk Guest Appearances #14 -Devil Dinosaur #1 (2005)

This issue has almost everything – every classic move the Hulk has.  While battling Devil Dinosaur the throws out how he is “The Strongest One There Is!” and of course “The Madder Hulk gets the Stronger Hulk gets!”  but the best part of this issue is watching two of Jack Kirby’s creations battle it out!  A match up that never happened in the original run of the underappreciated Devil Dinosaur.  I sort of wish this was just the beginning of a new series because this issue is fantastic from beginning to end but, alas, it is just a one-shot.

The best part of the issue is when Hulk and Devil sort of figure out who is behind everything and wreak havoc on their surroundings – I don’t like to give too much away but let’s just say I love seeing when all powerful beings realize they are in way over their heads!

Hulk #1 – Euro Foil Variant (2012)

cci01192017-2

This Italian version of Jason Aaron’s reboot of Hulk #1 was just too beautiful to let it sit on eBay.  I just had to snatch it up – I mean, look at it!  Yes, Silvestri’s Hulk is not the perfect representation – and he had quite a difficult time selling the original art for an astronomical price – but this is a great cover enhanced by the foil!  This variant contains not only the first issue of the Hulk but also Marvel’s Point One, Defenders #1 and (Red) Hulk #42.  It’s a monster for sure but also includes all the variant covers to the issue inside.  Seeing variants like this from across the pond is so beautiful – it’s a shame they don’t release books like this here!

When battling your enemies it’s best to know who you are up against.  A luxury that many heroes have after years of fighting the same bad guys time after time.  When you face a new foe – or one you don’t recognize you have to put many skills to the test to find just what works.  The Hulk was up against a man he did not recognize in Incredible Hulk #402.  The opponent was strong and fierce and knew just how to handle the Hulk.

That’s because it was the Juggernaut without his huge helmet and digs.  Good old Marco took advantage of this to pummel the Hulk into submission where he and the Red Skull tried to do all sorts of bad things – but they should’ve known – you can’t keep a good Hulk down!
