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