There are recent event comics that were put together better than Heroes Reborn – but that’s not saying much. The Heroes Reborn catalogue was handled by 90’s superstars Jim Lee and Rob Liefeld. This was about the time when people realized just how untalented and what a hack Rob Liefeld truly is. While this posterContinue reading “Heroes Reborn Promo Poster (1997)”
Let’s have a little fun and discuss some of the more graphic, violent, sad, or just plain awkward moments that have plastered the Hulk history. Be it a passing meeting between spouses of a gruesome scene that nobody saw coming – this year I’ll have you squirming in your seat! We’ll begin with one ofContinue reading “Hulk Gives Himself a Facial: A Year of Cringe- Worthy Hulk Moments – Week 1”
This storyline starts off with a bang… almost literally. The army comes looking for the Hulk and finds Betty… Oh boy, do they find Betty! She gets back into the house only with enough time to tell Bruce not to come get her – that they won’t hurt her. That’s when Talbot walks in –Continue reading ““Ghosts of the Future” (1996) – The Review”
This insanley cool piece is a prototype of a Hulk figure that was supposed to come out in the 1996 era of Hulk toys. You can pump his head and then press the buttons on his back and each button controls a different part. This sweet-ass piece also comes with a little nerf gun – the HulkContinue reading “Hulk Prototype (1996)”
I found something very interesting this past weekend – as searching some of my back issues I happened along Cable #34 written by none other than… drum roll… Jeph Loeb! Here’s the amazing thing – it’s actually pretty good! But there are some odd similarities to this issue and the current storyline. See, back inContinue reading “Cable #34 (1996)”
Remember those Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots? Well, in the later 90’s Marvel brought out their own version of those with the Heavy Hitters. Basically, you take the action figure provided and snap it into place on the joy stick. There are buttons that will make the Hulk punch, kick and give intimidating, dirty looksContinue reading “Heavy Hitters Raging Hulk (1996)”
I’ve never flown this kite, mainly because I’ve never had enough spare time to stand in one spot holding string and look stupid. But maybe someday! (You can’t see this, but I am crossing my fingers and my legs and squeezing my eyes shut REAL tight!)
The Ground Zero trade I just got finished reading again. What a great story, It has everything, even a surprise ending. And that’s not easy in comics. The Beauty and the Behemoth trade covers some of the life and times of Betty Banner. From when Bruce and Betty first met to when she wasContinue reading “Hulk Trades (1996, 1998)”
These are a few “other” cards I have I have a few sets of Hulk cards that I will post, but these are a few that are worth noting. The Marvel Masterpiece was one of the coolest images of the HUlk to date in 1992. The terrible Hulk vs. Wolverine card doesn’t even look theyContinue reading “Hulk Cards (1992/1994/1996)”
This magazine shows you everything that’s coming out. Seeing the Hulk displayed on the cover like that – it mine as well have been Kathy Ireland on the cover of the swimsuit issue. I was drooling over it.
This is a variant on the Rage Cage Hulk that I posted earlier and, even though he does not come with a cage of his own, I actually like this repaint better. Hulk still combination growls and yells when you pull the lever down in his back. His shirt almost rips off again – IContinue reading “Raging Hulk (1996)”
This is a great villan that has appeared in both Spider-man and the Hulk. I thought this was a bad choice for the movie to choose this villan. And to make it Banner’s father was even worse. In the comic book – the Absorbing Man is not Banner’s father.
Wizard put out a variant on the She Hulk figure from the Toy Biz line. It features the She Hulk in the Fantastic Four costume. It doesn’t stand very well though – so I had to prop her up.
I’m not sure why exactly but this is my favorite shirt. The head is WAY too small for the body – but for some reason it appeals to me. I bought this one at Hot Topic. It’s the cover to Hulk #446. Drawing by Angel Medina. Like it or hate it, it wasn’t myContinue reading “Hulk Shirt 5 (1996)”
This is the other Playset brought out in’96. I like this one a whole lot better than the last one. There is a switch on the back and when you flip it a timer starts counting down until – BOOM – the Hulk comes busting out of the playset. It’s pretty cool. This playset isContinue reading “Break-out Gamma Ray Trap Playset (1996)”
