Hulk finally, truly on the rampage?
If you've been out of the loop, here's a quick summary. Turns out there's a group of the brightest in the Marvel U. acting secretly in concert, orchestrating events for years. They're called the Illuminati, and they include Iron Man, Reed Richards, Professor X, Black Bolt, Namor, and Dr. Strange. They, in their infinite wisdom, decided the Hulk was too dangerous, tricked him into a spaceship, and shot him into space.
The Green Goliath crashes into a distant, waring world, quickly ascends as a warrior king, integrates his intellect with his power, chooses a queen, and has a baby on the way.
Things are looking good for Green Gums until the ship that brought him to the planet explodes, killing this wife and unborn baby.
Now, in Incredibly Hulk #106, he's coming back to earth. And he's beyond angry. He's coming back to kill the Illuminati. Not just "Hulk Smash" them. Kill them.
Seems appropriate for a betrayed teammate who's now a childless widower.
I've long said I suspect the rift caused by the Civil War may well be healed as heroes come together to stop the Hulk.
But if it's done right, I think World War Hulk will actually further fracture relationships, as I suspect a number of folks will side with the Hulk.
"It's gonna be dark, dark, dark, violent day ..."
Looking forward to it.
