Unscripted Review: Incredible Hulks #612

#1 Posted by CaptainGenisVell (299 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm a fan of the Hulk, but I'm not a fan of this ever growing family. Took me awhile to get the idea he had one son, but with this other one; I'm not so happy.
 
Will there be a story in the future which kills off some of the Hulks?

geez i have to wait for an advert to load before i can even get to the video, I understand the site may need money but this is annoying :(

Is it really only a 3/5? I was really looking forward to a good LONG opening story

Oh well. I'm interested in this twin bro of Skaar
#5 Edited by SGTGunz (5 posts) - - Show Bio

This is starting to get crazy. I liked the fact that he has a son but now Skaar has a twin brother?? This is starting to get out of hand.  So lemme guess the twin bro gets all pissed that everyone forgot about him and then he comes to Earth and fights all of the Hulks which results in him killing Lyra and Korg then in some way turns A-Bomb into a raging psychopath.  Which in turns makes Rick evil.  Then in the final standoff Betty sacrifices herself against the twin bro and that leaves Hulk, She-Hulk and Skaar as the only remaining Hulks.  I think I just solved the problem of tooooo many Hulks.....

I wanted more as well, MORE Hiro Kala!!!

I like Hulk and the rest but they need to get their own names, Red Hulk should just call himself  Thunderbolt and Betty needs a new name as well.

I've been reading Hiro Kala since the Skaar title turned into just Son of Hulk. I read the Realm of Kings. I still read in Incredible Hulk. I can't say I totally understand this character or any of the events that have happened in his life so far. If I had to explain it to someone, I don't know if I could. Very confusing.

Haven't been able to read any of the Hiro-Kala stuff yet, but I'm hoping to be able to soon. He interests me more than Skaar. I also don't like that Betty and her Dad are now Hulks. That's kind of stupid in my opinion... but what do I know :)

Totally. Thunderboltz are kinda tooken by the team, but Thunderbolt Hulk has a nice ring to it. I guess Betty could go by Hulktress perhaps?

Having all the Hulks is okay but if they introduce a blue hulk, a yellow hulk, a purple hulk, an orange hulk and an indigo hulk, the Hulk will no longer be my 4th fave superhero.

All these hulks are ridiculous,hulk is a powerhouse on his own,now we have around 6 more hulks.THESE HULKS ARE UNSTOPPABLE!!!They can beat up anyone,where is the peril?!

#16 Edited by DMC (1551 posts) - - Show Bio

I wish She-Rulk couldn't (or wouldn't) turn back into a puny human like Daddy Rulk is doing now. While I understand why Rulk is (and should be) Thunderbolt Ross, I don't need to be reminded cause it still feels awkward to me that he is a Hulk. Even more so with Betty Ross, No offense but I want She-Rulk not Betty.

Really?? No one is going to say it?? Fine, I guess its down to me it. WTF??!!

#18 Posted by -Eclipse- (7588 posts) - - Show Bio

Red She-Hulk is probably the worst superhero name I've ever heard. Yes, much worse than Codpiece.

#19 Posted by Comiclove5 (1258 posts) - - Show Bio

I was thinking about picking this up but I'm really unsure after watching this.
#20 Posted by Vendel (352 posts) - - Show Bio

Too many Hulks. Not enough Juggernaut.

#21 Posted by Omega Ray Jay (7818 posts) - - Show Bio

Loved fall of the Hulks with the whole Intelligencia plot, Great stuff. World War Hulks was a good wrap up to the plan and had some great issues to it, though throughout the latter half of that run when they started putting the 'Son of Hulk' in the back, I can't say i read any of them to any great exstent, to be honist i didn't really care about the other 'son of Hulk' and not enough to follow yet another arc which will see him inevitibly come to earth and kick up a fuss, Thanks but I've had my Hulk fill.

What about the Scorpion she thought she was Banners daughter but we haven't heard from her since I think incredible hulk #600.
#23 Posted by greenenvy (634 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't even like the color red to begin with so I can care less about the red hulks but red she hulk I like a little because she is sexier plus I wish she was kinda evil for a villainousness counterpart for she hulk like red hulk opposed to green hulk. I just want to see more of the she hulks and original hulk or skarr too those are the only hulks I like so no red hulk no red she hulk no a bomb but the others are fine enough. 

#24 Posted by jloneblackheart (5519 posts) - - Show Bio

OK so I just read it and it kind of helped me to understand Hiro Kala's motivations. I'm glad they finally explained how he survived Caiera's death and everything. I actually liked the Hiro story better than the Hulk story. The whole Red She Hulk thing seems transparent to me.  
 
I also don't care for the fact that Skaar has done such a complete 180. I'm fine with him liking Banner and having a father-son relationship, but he was a downright bastard up until now and now he is portrayed as some timid child. Sure he's being more like his true hidden self, but we all know he couldn't have just released all of his hate and rage so easily - I mean, isn't that struggle what being a Hulk is all about?

Well I like what is going on in this issue, the whole family thing seems kinda cool and I liked how it seems Bruce is in control of the Hulk when he actually just turned and talked to Skarr instead of chasing Red She-Hulk.And I would probably give this issue a 3.5 but I might like Hiro Kala more so...

two or three hulks would have been enough. Any more than that is too much. I really hope more than half of them get killed off.

@ironshadow:
What's wrong with the names Rulk and She-Rulk? They sound cool to me.
#29 Posted by GraphicCasualFreak (221 posts) - - Show Bio

I Really liked World War Hulk but this doesn't seem like something I'd like.

#30 Posted by Mr. Kamikaze (526 posts) - - Show Bio

Not liking this issue or how its turning out.... 
 
So many Hulks, it feels very overdone. The whole world and their mothers are getting Hulk powers, it makes Bruce Banner, the actual Hulks suddenly feel...unimportant. Being Hulk is nothing special now that there are a million of them... 
 
Throw a rock out your window you'll hit a Hulk almost every time...people start not to care anymore. Takes all the fun out of it.  
 
Maybe its also the fact that they turned it into a team book....a group of people who could create a massive earthquake all around the world with a collective sneeze, and no one has a problem with that?

#31 Posted by Quntumking (216 posts) - - Show Bio

Could the HULK family beat the X-men family? WORLD WAR HULK was awesome but everything else except maybe the introduction of the RED HULK for me hasn't been so great.

#32 Posted by American Dragon (1146 posts) - - Show Bio

One Hulk was always enough,imo
 
I hate the idea of multiple one`s running around
 
Stupidity it is

#33 Posted by Dex (559 posts) - - Show Bio

Did you just watch cops or something G-Man?

#34 Posted by Grimoire (543 posts) - - Show Bio

There is only one problem for me and that is Red She-Hulk A.k.a Betty Ross. I didn't like her personality before and I didn't like her in this story. Banner turns into the Hulk and he protects and defends her but when she turns she throws him around like a rag doll because she likes it. I hope he moves on and finds another Queen. lol

I´m not a regular Hulk reader, I just pick up trades from time to time. It seems I would be majorly confused with so many Hulks running around!

Yeah, I wasn't a fan of this issue, which is a shame because I adored last month's.

So much Hulks around... it's like with Deadpool currently...why the need to create so much family for those characters lately..?
I mean, She Hulk was around for a while, but all the others (as well as the "Deadpool Corps") appeard like all at the same time...

Wait, G-Man didn't like this, but still gave it a 3? 
 
What? Why does comic vine even bother numbers? Average issues get 4 stars and mediocre to bad ones get 3.

To show their opinions on how they think the comic is.(Story,Art,Dialogue,Re-read value)
 
Personally, I skim through books that I can't afford but see if it was good or bad.

Planet Hulk was the pinnacle of Hulk lore. This stuff is blasphemy. End.

#43 Posted by G-Man (34236 posts) - - Show Bio
@doctorchimp: A 3 equals a 60%. As I mentioned, it had some bits to it like the tiny bit of closure with Bruce and Betty. And there's also some info on Hulk's other son. Kind of cool but I think it shouldn't have been here. And as for what "average" is, that would be a 3.5 out of 5, 70%. It's all about Mathematics (which I taught for ten years). There's no mystery to the ratings system here.

I thought it went by X-Play stars, Giantbomb stars or netflix stars, where a 3 is average and you kinda liked it. My bad I guess. I didn't know you went by percentages. Why not just give out grades then?

I'd totally give it a three out of five
