@greenscar1990: You know they going to have Hulk lose against Hulkbuster and it will probably piss me off.

Not a chance. Hulk is going to wreck the Hulkbuster armor, or maybe Natasha will calm him down before destroying Stark.

My thoughts exactly. Before Hulk kills Stark, Natasha will approach him and calm him down. Then, Hulk will leap off into the distance. That's why I believe we see Banner alone in a forest.

Avengers: Age of Ultron

Teaser Trailer

Looks like doc greens having his head kicked in by red hulk, so much for having an extremely powerful hulk.

I have a feeling that Red Hulk had a lot of help (Red She-Hulk, Gamma Corps, and probably numerous others).

Also, I think appearances can be very deceiving.

Remember Rulk's weakness? The angrier he gets, the hotter he gets. He'll eventually become so intense in heat that he'll be weakened from the strain. That's what I believe to be happening. Doc Green is extremely smart, the Smartest and Strongest There is. He'll know of this weakness.

He'll let Rulk bash him and get angrier until the right moment. Then, I have a feeling that Doc Green will go full on Maestro and proceed to brutally assault Rulk, hopefully dismembering and killing him. Out of all the Hulks, Rulk is the one that needs to go... permanently!

@raynorf:

Out of all the Hulks, Skaar was the main one who shouldn’t have lost his Hulk form. He has limitless potential as a character. And even while it’s true that his current human/oldstrong form still possesses said potential, I feel that him not having the other half of his heritage takes something away from him.

I think the main problem is simply this when involving Skaar:

1) We have yet to get a writer who is passionate and has a vision for the character.

2) Marvel has yet to fully utilize Skaar in a major, significant manner/way.

What needs to happen is that Skaar needs to set out and explore the Marvel Universe. He should not remain in the Savage Land, and should not simply remain on Earth all the time. Imagine if Skaar had an ongoing series where he encountered heroes & villains from every corner of the Marvel Universe.

Could you imagine Skaar teaming up with the likes of X-23, Thor, Amadeus Cho, the Guardians of the Galaxy, the Inhumans, and others like them?

What about solo (or team-up) adventures where Skaar explores the 9 (10) Realms, battling Frost Giants in Jotunheim; tangling with Fire Demons/Serpents/Dragons in Muspelheim; tearing through the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim?

There’s also the chance for some cosmic adventures. There’s always the chance he’ll encounter Galactus and his heralds again. And let’s not forget the powerful alien warlord Lord Armageddon, who holds a severe grudge against the Hulk for killing his son Trauma/Troh-Maw back in PAD’s legendary tenure. Lots of potential stories to be mined here. We could also delve into the culture of the Shadow/Oldstrong People. After all, little is known about them. Here is what we know of the Shadow People.

1) They’re one of the oldest races in the universe.

2) They’re physically, mentally, spiritually, and technologically advanced beyond measure.

That’s about it.

The Old Power itself is not only vastly powerful beyond measure (As shown in numerous cases. Examples: Hiro-Kala using it to poison Galactus; Skaar using it to drive Galactus mad with Hunger for the Old Power; Hiro-Kala moving the planet K’ai from the microverse to the 616-Universe towards Earth; etc.) cosmic, mystic and scientific in nature. Remember how easily Hiroim used his mystic training to easily get through Dr. Strange’s (who was Sorcerer Supreme at the time) defenses, including the impenetrable barrier? And let’s not forget how he overwhelmed and nearly exercised the powerful demon Zom from Dr. Strange in Incredible Hulks #620: Chaos War.

We know so very little about the Oldstrong/Shadow People. It would be very awesome to explore their countless worlds and discover their culture in-depth. And I could honestly see a story forming where a very powerful Oldstrong Master takes Skaar under his/her tutelage. It worked for animated series like Avatar: The Last Airbender (One of my favorite series of all-time), so I don’t see why it couldn’t work here as well.

It would both give us a chance to further explore the Shadow/Oldstrong Peoples’ culture, while also giving Skaar an important role/task/mission to fulfill. Remember, neither Skaar, Caiera, Hiroim, Kate Waynesboro, or Hiro-Kala were Oldstrong Masters. Despite this fact, they’ve displayed immense power. If they can achieve such feats of power, I’d honestly couldn’t imagine how formidable a true Oldstrong Master is in combat.

All of this potential and more can be had with Skaar if only we’d get a writer & artist who honestly cared and knows where to take the character. The sky is the limit. All is needed is someone with passion and creative vision.

Overall, when it comes down to the issue itself… it was disappointing. The fight was short and anti-climatic. Skaar was mostly holding back, he didn’t even use his Shadowforged sword or his Old Power in the conflict. And Skaar just accepting his depowered state? I can’t see that to be honest. He’s a barbarian warrior. He doesn’t surrender. He doesn’t know fear or pain. He is the Killer of Killers for a reason. And to me, and others, it felt very out of character. Even some of the dialogue felt forced. It could even be argued that the whole Doc Green/Skaar conflict was rushed.

I think most of us were expecting a very more emotional, intense, earth-shaking battle that had essence of the “Father against Son” mythology that the Hulk series has been known for thanks to writers like Bill Mantlo, Peter David and Greg Pak. It certainly doesn’t hold a candle to the masterpiece that is Incredible Hulk #611, that’s for sure. However, I have a gut feeling that Skaar’s depowerment will not last very long. He’s popular, one of the most popular of the Hulks to be exact.

Despite this, I did find a few things that were enjoyable in this issue. The Hulkling scene was slightly amusing, if not totally unneeded and could have been replaced with more Doc Green & Skaar. The eerie scene with Banner coming back only for Doc Green to immediately take control and suppress him was very cool. It brought back memories of Incredible Hulk #376-377.

I like the fact that Skaar has aged to a 17-18 year old young adult. Not to mention that he’s got his father’s (Hulk & Banner) way of garnering the attention of beautiful ladies (gives me hope for a future ongoing involving Skaar & X-23). I honestly enjoyed that scene a bit, plus it makes me wonder what adventures Skaar will undertake in the near future. He still possesses the Old Power, which has infinite power & potential due to its connection being cosmic, mystic, scientific, and spiritual in nature.

A lot can be done with his character, and it is very unlikely that he will remain depowered for too long given his popularity. There’s the remark that Doc Green made that also makes me think that Skaar isn’t as permanently depowered as we believe. It’s certainly up for debate.

And I really liked the art, despite some minor coloring mistakes (the sclera of Skaar’s eyes being white instead of black). That last page of Red She-Hulk was gorgeous! I also liked the fact that Mr. Duggan acknowledges the previous Red She-Hulk series that was written by Jeff Parker, a series that was cancelled way too soon. Because what some might say, I enjoyed the Red She-Hulk series and have come to accept her along with the rest of the Hulks.

In fact, I’m honestly tired of the complaining about the other Hulks. There’s what? Six-Seven Hulks at most? It’s not that many! There’s tons of Mutants, Inhumans, Eternals, and other beings running about the Marvel Universe, for crying out loud! I find it very freaking hypocritical when people go ranting about the Hulks when there’s tons of other, more numerous beings in comics! If most people had those kind of perspectives, there wouldn’t be any new characters at all! Besides, if any one single Hulk should go permanently, it’s ole Thaddeus Ross, a.k.a Red Hulk.

Okay, back to the matter of what I liked in this issue.

I liked that Rick Jones came to warn Betty about Doc Green at the secret lair of the Order of the SHIELD. I think it’s gonna be quite clear that none of the Hulks aren’t too thrilled with Doc Green making their decisions for them. I mean, more or less, he’s trying to control their lives and force them to relinquish their power, like he’s got any damn right to do so in the first place. Like Skaar said: What gives him the right?

I believe that a backlash of incredible proportions is coming for Doc Green in the future. It will only be a matter of time. And I’ll be looking forward to how everything goes down.

That’s all I got to say.

In other words…. ‘Nuff said.

This is my first reaction to this issue.

First off, I'm not a fan of Skaar being depowered at all. The character has limitless potential. Still does, even in his Human/Oldstrong form. I can only hope that this depowerment doesn't last and that Skaar gets utilized A LOT more in the near future. He's too great of a character to be left alone and disappear. I want to see Skaar more, as I believe that he's the best of the Hulks. He deserves it, and I'm sure that his sizable fan base would agree with me.

Overall, I felt this issue was disappointing. The beginning with Hulking, while a little amusing, was just a waste of time that could have been spent with Skaar & Doc Green. I was disappointed that Skaar did not utilize his Old Power during the brief skirmish, though he proved to be more than a physical match for Doc Green as a single hit knocked Doc across the Savage Land.

When it came to dialogue, some of it felt forced, especially in regards to Skaar. It could even be said that the whole Skaar/Doc Green altercation was very rushed, as well. It could have been a spectacular, emotional, intense issue. Instead, what we got was merely a decent issue at best.

And am I the only one who felt that Skaar was too accepting of his current depowerment?

And did you notice that in some panels the sclera around Skaar's eyes isn't black like it's supposed to be? The colorist made quite a few mistakes there. It's a minor grip, but still.

However, despite that there was a lot that I wasn't too keen on, there was some small things that I did like.

1) I like the fact that Skaar has matured to being about 17-18 years old. He's already attracting attention from the opposite sex, which is a big thumbs up! I have to give credit to Gerry Duggan for that at least. Who knows, maybe there's a chance of a X-23 & Skaar friendship/romance happening in the near future?

2) Doc Green suppressing and controlling Banner. He quite literally reverted him back through force of will alone. And let's not forget that bit of dialogue which makes me wonder if Doc Green isn't also suppressing/forcing down the other Hulk personas within his/their psyche. It's kind of eerie. And I can't help but wonder what message Doc Green left?

3) Rick Jones coming to warn Betty about Doc Green. Loved that last page of Red She-Hulk. Very lovely, if you ask me. It also let's us know that Mr. Duggan was aware of the previous Red She-Hulk series by Jeff Parker.

Overall, I'd rate the issue at about 5-6 out of 10 at the very most.

I can only hope Mr. Duggan & Marvel realize how many fans love Skaar and want him to not be utilized more often, but also be a Hulk again.

'Nuff said.

This is pretty much my reaction to this series.

It's stupid. In more ways than one. There's tons of other characters that deserve their own series. X-23, Skaar, Lyra/Savage She-Hulk, Sif, Valkyrie, Beta-Ray Bill, Dr. Strange are just some of the few that I can list. There's many more who deserve their own series far more.
