Skaar: Son Of Hulk Preview Unveiled At Aint-It-Cool

Grrr...Skaar carry big weapons. Skaar Smash!

Check it out.  Aint-it-cool news has a ten page preview for SKAAR.  I'll admit, I'm a little skeptical.  You can't say it's not a great creative team on this.  My question is, is this really necessary?  Do we really need a "Son of Hulk"?  

You could question the...originality of a character that is basically just a copy of another.  It's enough that we have Hulk, She-Hulk and Red Hulk.  Now we get Hulk Jr.  Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy She-Hulk's character and am enjoying the Red Hulk series.  But what's Jr. gonna do?  You know eventually he'll make his way to Earth and blame daddy for not taking him to a ballgame or something.  It's his fault that he had to grow up on a crazy barbaric planet, right?  Who cares that Hulk wasn't aware that he was alive.  Maybe I'm just bitter because this smells a little like Daken, Wolverine's son.   

Another question, how did he grow up so fast?  Part of his biological make-up?  Is this set in the "future"?  Guess we haven't seen that before.

Of course I'll pick it up.  Like I said, it has a great creative team.  Greg Pak has done wonders since he started writing Hulk.  Perhaps he can bring his magic along here.
