hitachi's Incredible Hulk #106 - Warbound, Part 1 review

Hulk finally, truly on the rampage?

(Spoilers)

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.

    A taste of She Hulk 0

    This issue has great artwork from Gary Frank. Now I recommend on the baasis of being a She Hulk fan. There don't seem to be too many significant appearances for her these days but this is actually one her best. You get the She hulk humor, intelligence, they evn through in a flashback involing the Chanpions and She Hulk smashes two people. A recamp panel shows he deck Iron Man ( which is always fun to watch) However the real fight is with Doc Samson who ends up taking a thrashing from a pissed of...

    The War is about to begin 0

    Someone told me in advance that Hulk wasn't actually in this issue, and I was worried. How can you start World War Hulk without the Hulk in it? Well it turns out this is a great way to start it.Now that I've had a chance to read the issue and step back and dwell on it, I find it makes perfect sense the way it was handled. We already know what's going on with Hulk and his Warbound warriors, but we hardly know what's going on with the players that are going to be important to this story that are a...
