i've recently noticed that hulk is getting a lot of hate and a lot of people even hate him now, i still think hulk is cool and the STRONGEST THERE IS!!!
Why all the hate for Big Green???
I like the Hulk....but only because he was a childhood favorite. But to be honest nowadays....Its really hard to get in touch with his character...I mean what has really changed about him?
I get angry...can't control myself...sometimes i cooperate....i want to be alone....hate banner.....
I mean even Deadpool these days makes a bigger impact on the Marvel Universe than Hulk. He helps out X-force and gets jobs done. So what if Hulk were to disappear from the Marvel Universe? What would really change? He contributes absolutely nothing in this period of time. Nothing at all would change if he were to just go off planet again. His character has really reached the point of pointless and useless. Yes. You are strong and angry...so what?
As a consumer why would I spend $3.99 a month on a book that really means nothing (and whose writing is bland at best). This is why Rulk's book is taking off. People like the idea of a goliath with super strength...but they have been craving for one that has some control and contributes SOMETHING to the world of Marvel.
People are tired of feeling sorry for Banner, tired of him looking for a cure, tired of the Hulk destroying crap and having Banner wonder "wth happened". Although yes Banner has gained some control over the years it still has not been enough for him to direct Hulk to do anything of use. Rulk has done WAY much more than Hulk has in the past years.
Hulk needs a purpose for existing. He needs somewhere to be aimed at instead of simply wandering around aimlessly. Nobody wants to hold his hand anymore and wonder if Bruce will have a normal life. Ive been asking myself that question for almost 2 decades. It's OLD!
They just need to figure out something new to do with him. Give Banner some more control and give Hulk a purpose or do a Jerry Seinfeld and end things on the highest note you can.
My 2 cents.
i freakin love hulk, sure its mindless smashing most of the time and an autistic attitude but who doesnt like smashing? but i do agree the current IH is not that good. i was expecting something a little more from the explanation of how hulk and banner split. still got hulk volume
@TheAcidSkull: For some reason I think Banner should work with S.H.I.E.L.D. They could use Banners intelligence to solve the world's problems from a scientific standpoint and bring in the Hulk when something needs smashing.
I would support even that. It would give his character SOME purpose.
I liked the Hulk, but then, Marvel made all that bullshit about Banner being a horrible person, childhood trauma, Hulk getting smarter, and now EVERYONE Banner knows is a hulk. I belive it was Bart Simpson who onse said: I just like when he punches people. And Hulkcomics today SUCKS! I mean, he is a big green monsterman! How do you fuck that up! I never thought I woud say someting like this, but I like the red one better.
I think the problem with Hulk (green) comics is the fact that he can't be beaten by anybody. To be honest when the WWH event hit and he practically beat all the characters really was a big stretch.
Another problem is that they feel that everyone needs to be a hulk. She-Hulk understandable because of the original cartoon created character. Other hulk's not so much. If they at least give hulk a new dynamic to work with I would be totally interested. If anyone has read the Avengers Assemble comic it's a perfect example of what Hulk comics are. Jason Aaron needs to get off this title, it was a good premise, but he couldn't execute not shocking based on his other works.
The red hulk is refreshing but I haven't read it since #42.
And one more complaint is that whenever I get into an argument with Hulk fans it always seems they do a lot of selective reading like the onslaught event for example.
I had to friggin' drop Big Green because of the stuff Jason Aaron put him through. At first it was great....but now only the cartoon and film Hulks are any good to don the green.
Red Hulk is a vastly superior comic book hulk. Fans of the original might whine about that, but the fact of the matter is that Jeff Parker rights better than Jason Aaron (who all he knows to write is Wolverine).
Now if Jeff got around to write the green Hulk series as well as the Red Hulk series....
