@theacidskull: I see inspired and ripped off as a fine line, as you could easily say that Hawkeye was inspired by Green Arrow, or Thanos was inspired by Darksied, although I do get your point, mine is just that it's a fine line. I personally like how Hulks inspired by Jekyll and Hyde, as I loved the book, and the way Stan Lee used that for Hulk was brilliant.
Yeah they do have similarities but I see Grundy as more dimwitted, and slow, whereas Hulks misunderstood.
@theacidskull: That still in a small way makes him a rip off. I have no problem with that, as inspiration is a brilliant thing, but it still doesn't change that. Still my main point was that Grundy and Hulk are different types of characters anyway.
well being inspired and having a rip off is different, Hulk was inspired by mr Hyde and Frankenstein, while deadpool for example is a BASIC rip off of deathstroke, even though right now the characters are vastly different, AND even though deadpool is much cooler :P.
Anyways, hulk and grundy ARE in many ways similar, and yet different. but i see your point.
@theacidskull: Not really as Solomon Grundy's based on a rhyme, and a zombie, whereas Hulk is a man that changes into a monster. Also Hulk is a rip off in himself as he's basically a Jekyll and Hyde character.
Hulk isn't a RIP off, he was Based on jekyll/hyde and Frankenstein, because stan lee was generarly a fan of classic horrors, same way Lizard was Based on Wolf Man.
@theacidskull: Right. But he didn't say how long he would stay away from Hulk villains, did he? Who knows? But I can't be the only one hoping that we'll get an Abomination story in the future, right? :)
Well thats true, though it's obvious we won't be seeing him anytime soon. i think that waid will re-introduce abomination after he makes some other villains appear on the title :)
