This year the Mayan Calender runs out on December 21, and there are many different beliefs as to what that means. While most believe December 21, 2012 will just be another day, others eagerly await the date and believe a great transformative event will occur and elevate humanity to a higher plane of existence. Another school of thought has a more pessimistic outlook and believes that 12/21/12 marks a catastrophic, apocalyptic event that will destroy the world.
The inhabitants of the Marvel Universe share those fears because their world is home to many beings capable of bringing about doomsday. This year their fears will be justified when the Mayan Gods return to take over the Earth in a "Hulk" arc by writer Jeff Parker and new series artist Dale Eaglesham. Standing in their way are General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross, better known as the Red Hulk and star of the ongoing "Hulk" comic book series, and his allies Machine Man, A-Bomb, the She-Hulks, and Alpha Flight.
If you people still don't buy this book, I hate you. I'M HONESTLY SO PUMPED FOR THIS.
