Hulked Out Heroes

EVERYONE SMASH!

H.O.H.... It's been blinking on the store's order screens for a few months now. We all knew it was something Hulk related, but no idea what it stood for... Until today. We found these cool pictures from BleedingCool of what H.O.H. stands for...  Hulked Out Heroes. 

 WORLD WAR HULKS: HULKED-OUT HEROES #1-#2
Written by JEFF PARKER
Pencils and Covers by HUMBERTO RAMOS
Spinning from the shocking twist ending of FALL OF THE HULKS, Jeff Parker (WORLD WAR HULKS: ALPHA, AVENGERS VS. ATLAS, THUNDERBOLTS) and Humberto Ramos (SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN, X-MEN) bring you the most incredible new character from the House of Ideas: HULKPOOL! What sacrifices will he make for the greater good? What horrible decisions will change the world as we know it? And what do Devil Dinosaur, Rawhide Kid, Rama Tut, and Bluebeard the Pirate have to do with this? Find out this April in HULKED-OUT HEROES!
40 PGS.(each)/Rated T+ …$3.99 (each)

Not convinced yet? How about another smashtastic picture? 
  
There ya go! Wait... Is that Thing in a pirate outfit? There's been quite a bit of Deadpool, one could say too much, floating around the Marvel U the past couple of years, and it seems "Hulkpool" will be a big part of this story. Why should you care about this book? Jeff Parker is writing it. The same guy that brought you the highly under-rated Exiles Vol 2, Age of the Sentry, and both volumes of X-Men: First Class. When you read a Jeff Parker book, get ready for not only a fun comic, but one that can actually be "funny."  

Humberto Ramos is doing the pencils on this book too. He's great when it comes to books with a more humorous take on them: Impulse and Deadpool Team-up are great examples of this.  

So don't get too annoyed that Deadpool is on another book because this is the team you'd want to see with a title that seems as ridiculous as this one does. Gamma soaked smashfest. That's what you are going to get. So strap in and have fun with it. This book will be ni stores in April.
 
 
What do you guys think? Would you buy this book?

As much as I love Hulk...this really doesn't interest me that much.

like i said earlier, too soon and just way to whacked out to make any judgment, but im following Hulk so 
im getting it. it does work with the plot though, given new Gamma creation fiesta in effect with Red Hulk
Red She-Hulk, A-Bomb, Cosmic Hulk reactivated, Gamma Corps Black, ect. new and different Hulks and Gamma creatures is actually nothing new at all either, for all the naysayers out there (seriously read 24 issues in a row of Hulk, from any year)
and as i noted earlier i predict a gaggle of Battle threads involving these characters, maybe even some before we know anything about them

lol they look hilarious

I think it looks like a fun read.  The Hulk has been great lately and I do mean in both books.

honestly, this part of the solicit has me more excited...

 the shocking twist ending of FALL OF THE HULKS

looks like a Beast-Hulk, and i dunno what the other is, some sort of Thor-Hulk?
Posted by DEGRAAF

at least it makes sense as to how it all came to be.

This looks soooo stupid.

Wait, is the Thing one of those? Isn't that kind of redundant?

This reminds me of the Exiles comic where they travel to a universe where everyone on Earth had been turned into Hulks.  There was an average city scene, people getting into cars, walking the streets, shopping in suits and ties and dresses and stuff, and they were all big green Hulks.

for some reason I missed Thor-Hulk, but I think the beast hulk is the Wolverine Hulk i mentioned

the worst part about this is that its cannon. in a few years, Spidey can turn to cap and say "remember when we got turned into Hulk's?" and Cap will say "yes."
...sigh...

@Grim: no worse than Cap reminiscing on being a werewolf.

Well, gamma radiation in The MU doesn't only give you muscles and berserker strength, as several characters, particularly The Leader, can attest. 
 
Let's wait to see what it's all about, first. 
 
You'll notice a somewhat non-musclebound Two-Gun Kid and Bucky.

This scrapes the bottom of the Deadpool barrel so far, it sinks through the floor.

no worse....but just as depressing.

@Grim: So don't read it. It looks good to me.

same opinion. change and for the sake of fun are good in my book.
Edited by DEADPOOL

It's kinda funny that InferiorEgo mentioned there being too much Deadpool over the past year and a quarter when Hulk(s) has been running rampant ever since World War Hulk. Just saying...
 
I don't really get the Deadpool criticism. He has his own comics and makes some guest appearances, like every other hero does. Spider-Man stars in a couple comics and guest stars in others, Wolverine stars in even more comics and guest stars in even more, and Hulk has had entire crossover story-arcs for the past 3 years, etc. So People are being down on Deadpool for being in this when no one's saying anything about Hulk, Spider-Man, or Wolverine.

Actually, there has already been a canon Spider-Hulk, lol.

@CATMANEXE: I agree change is good and besides we don't even know if these are the real heroes or clones or cosmic robots or what yet. I personally don't think that they are the real heroes.
Posted by CATMANEXE

okay, after reading Incredible Hulk #608 and Hulk #21 i definatly know
whats going on here and really cant wait for this book now.

Posted by advocatefish

If theres Deadpool to be found, im in .
Posted by Tainted-Cell

Yeah...
Not a big Humberto Ramos fan, at all. For a completely unnecessary story that has zero relevance to continuity, I understand the need for an artist who understands humor, but his style is just.... ugly. Call me shallow, but when I pay the going rate for comics, I want to get something that I can say: "wow" and stare at for a while before flipping the page.

actually it has everything to do with continuity.

I like how Bucky's bionic arm got Hulked out, too. Lmao.

Posted by Omega Ray Jay

Thought it was kind of stupid the moment it happend but then i just started to laugh, reminded me of the End of Time part 1 when everyone becomes The Master. Also the plan being reviled at the end made it make sense, enjoyed it.

Posted by dan1509

if u read the issue, it's not actually that bad, plus the hulked out heroes are really done quite well :) should be interesting :P  
 
plus the blue lightning guy is Thor, Dont know how that works, go figure :P
