Off My Mind: Should We Be Scared About...HULKPOOL?

I've mentioned before that I am enjoying Red Hulk's story. We are currently seeing the Fall of the Hulks and World War Hulks. For those that are tired of the mystery, we will find out who Red Hulk is soon. 
 
With Hulked Out Heroes we're going to see Hulk-versions of existing characters. How can this happen, you ask? Basically, the Leader and M.O.D.O.K. have used Red Hulk's energy to gamma-power different characters in the hopes that they'll take him out. Unfortunately, Red Hulk brought Deadpool with him and now we have...Hulkpool.
 
The idea of possibly seeing characters like Captain America or Spider-Man "hulked out" could be interesting. I can enjoy the occasional humorous story. I don't get worked up if writers decide to take a chance once in a while, especially if it proves to be entertaining. 
 
Why should we be 'scared' then? What if this leads to a spin-off or mini-series? We already have too much Deadpool as it is. I can handle Zombie Deadpool's head. I'm on the fence with the Deadpool Corps (actually, I still haven't read issue #1 from last week). What if Marvel decides they could give us more Deadpool action by having Hulkpool make more appearances? To me, that's a scary thought.
 
From the looks of things in Hulked Out Heroes, Hulkpool might not last too long. His first objective is to go back in time to kill "puny Deadpool." If he succeeds, that could solve some of our problems. We'll have to see if Hulkpool stays in the past playing pirate with Ben Grimm or if he'll succeed in his mission of trying to kill himself.

Let's hope there's nothing to be scared about. I'm up for a good funny story. I just don't want to see Hulkpool making guest appearances in other books.
 
Do you like the idea of Hulkpool? Would you want to see more of him?

Awww haters gonna hate. Get over yourselves. 
 
This could actually show a bit of depth to Deadpool for the first time in a while. Why do you think Hulkpool wants to kill Deadpool? Because deep down inside Deadpool hates himself and hides it all by acting like a crazed lunatic. But i guess you haters didn't even know that about the character and think he is just a shallow wise cracker...
 
But last time Deadpool was involved in a Hulk story it was probably the worst he has been written... ever. Loeb needs to retire.

@G-Man i also havent read the first deadpool corp from last week, or even finished the preludes. I hope all of this deadpool everywhere stops soon. I still love deadpool but its just too much. 
 
That being said, this looks great. Thing in a pirate costume is very funny. It looks silly. I just hope its a silly that i can get behind.

I like the Ramos art!  But I got too lost in all the solicitations for the various Hulk events...  I have no idea what's going on or how... 
 
I just hope the Deadpool mania calms down a little now.

I agree. Whatever happened to the jeph leob who wrote batman: hush?

I love deadpool. but the idea of hulkpool is abit naff. all of these different deadpools is getting tiring now.

mind you, it has some humberto ramos which kinda perks my interest.

#13 Posted by MisterMollusk (103 posts) - - Show Bio

i luv teh deadpool and i luv his crazy shennanigans. i like it when they put something silly in the midst of dark seriousness. it kinda reminds me of the orks in warhammer 40k

@MisterMollusk:  thats a great point actually.
 
all these people complaining about deadpool. why ain't you complaining about the constant "grimdark" crap that is marring Marvel these days? It seems i can't read a single Marvel book without someone dying or some horrible event.
#15 Posted by Fresh0133 (496 posts) - - Show Bio

I too was enjoying Hulk in all of it's ridiculousness, although Red Hulk started to get a bit of depth there in the last couple of issues I bought. 
 
Then I saw the solicit for Hulked out Heroes. 
 
Without a second of hesitation I called my LCS and told him to drop every single Hulk title I was purchasing, that's how unappealing the idea of what Loeb, Parker, and Pak did is to me.  The thing is I love Greg Pak's work, I don't know how they roped him into this ridiculousness, but until all of this is done and over, and I'm talking well over, I won't touch a Hulk book, period.

I don't care for Deadpool, but his story with Hulkpool in WWH was pretty amusing. But I do feel like if any of these 'Hulked-Out Heroes" end up being around long after the rest of them are reverted back to their normal states, it will be Hulkpool.
 
Also, I'm pleased to see the return of Thing as Blackbeard!

Same here!
 
but I have to say that hulking out heroes is a bit out there... and if Deadpool becomes Hulkpool, then it takes his best quality away... "Merc with a Mouth"

I would prefer not to read any spin offs about him, but I don't mind him for a couple issues. I don't mind hulked out heroes since I don't think they will last long.

I think Deadpool has finally gotten too big for his britches.

if everyone here thinks that deadpool is way too popular and ur complaning that hes everywhere, thats only because you LOOK for him everywhere. stop complaining that hes everywhere and deal with YOUR problem by not clicking on his image or a link with his name on it so u can keep complaining.

@oNBAo OG Mike Hancho: 
 
Well said. But haters are gonna hate. And when a character doesn't have 50 years of history he isn't worthy of some time to shine in some peoples eyes. By some people i mean ignorant people.

#30 Posted by KiraIsL (4 posts) - - Show Bio

I like Deadpool, don't see why people moan all the time. There are a lot more annoying characters out there and they appear more frequently.

#31 Posted by MrMiracle77 (1659 posts) - - Show Bio

I think the only thing to be afraid of here is "merge fever".  Cuz, golly, if Hulkpool does well we could very well see the likes of brilliant ideas such as Captain Spidey, Iron-neato, Ice-Torch, or even the dreaded Jean Fury.

#32 Posted by TheAntiVillain (74 posts) - - Show Bio

make hulkpool a villain for deadpool corps or the ongoing deadpool 
 
no spin-offs please or i'm gonna choke a b^#1h

 i dont mind this hulkpool just getting sick of so many dp comics being released a few months ago it was perfect only a couple of series going on which made everything easy to handle and digest, now im just buying comics and dont even get the chance to read them because the following week theres like another 4 min released. Fair do's about getting dp out there for the future film  but seriously marvel need to carm down its only gonna make people hate dp. I use to love buying comics now it like a fricken chore! obviously not going to stop getting them because i love dp so much. Just think they should slow down abit.. please for our sanity!

you guys all know this isnt a new Deadpool series right?
thats just page art and promo's form the two part
Hulked Out Heroes book which is part of the World
War Hulks event
. Hulkpool appeared already in that
series. ( 1)( 2)
 
ill just come out with it. at the end of Fall Of The Hulks several characters,
Deadpool included, in fact he was a major factor in that got turned into Hulks
( i'll stop there,read the issues) . this story is a continuation of that. i think the plot of
these two issues is fairly obvious. something happens that by the end all of the characters
get turned back to normal. i could even guess it might have something to do with the time-traveling 
Hulkpool is said to be doing here.

Hulkpool sums up everything that is wrong with Marvel right now.

@G-Man:
I would love to see more Hulkpool, but not from a different reality or loeph book.
 
I would like to see our actual deadpool going hulk mode due to the blood that he got transplanted back in the golden Joe Kelly days. However Not while daniel way is around, he just drops the ball with everything and he sucks.
#38 Posted by CylonDorado (1867 posts) - - Show Bio

He could join the Deadpool corps.

What bugs me most about Red Hulk's identity being revealed is Jeph Loeb keeps saying "you'll find out soon!" every few months. And we still don't know, probably because Loeb himself hasn't figured out who he wants it to be. If you're going to keep it a secret, Jeph, just say so, but don't lie to our faces every time a new issue comes out.

Loeb probably doesn't know. He is so out of touch with what is good he probably thought it doesn't matter. Loeb should of retired ages ago.

Hulked Out Heroes is the stupidest thing I've heard of since Franken-Castle. I suppose there will always be bad ideas floating around or being proposed, but Marvel sure has been letting alot of crap through to publication lately.

@the ace of knaves:  I agree and actually,I wonder how loeb still has a job at Marvel with all the crap he's been making such as Ultimatum and Red Hulk.
#48 Posted by CATMANEXE (17052 posts) - - Show Bio

I read it. funny, whacked out wild ride. the time periods we're all used in previous comics, though i cant remember
the exact issues. lived up to what it was supposed to be. nice art. not essential to the World War Hulks story as far
as i could tell though.

They need to stop. They are just using whatever comes out of their butts and not thinking about story lines.
