Jeff Parker and Paul Pelletier do a great job in showing us what the Intelligencia is all about. I don't think it's easy to take a bunch of lame villains and actually make them cool without drastically rewriting all that they're about. We're seeing that this group has been putting things in motion for some time now. When it came to the Illuminati and the little rewrites in history, I didn't quite buy it. The things that the Intellingencia have been up to feels like it could've actually happened.
That being said, the writing and art are great here. I knew I would be excited for this issue before it came out but it actually exceeded my expectations. I know (for some reason) people have been a little on the fence over the Red Hulk and the current stories involving the Hulk. Week after week, the Hulk books are at the top of my list of reading enjoyment. I can't wait to see what happens next.
