Thanks for chiming in.

I think Pak had a great opportunity with Planet Hulk, which started out well but was overlong in my opinion.

But WWH had nowhere to go from the start---it was just 'Hulk Smash' all over again, and we knew the Hulk was not going to win or take over the planet. So I thought that was very poorly conceived from the start.

Especially when the army attacked the Hulk after the collected heroes tried to stop him and failed...! What a bone-head move on the writer's part.

So at this point I'm attracted to the Raging Red Hulk that reminds me of the Jade Giant from the Bronze Age. Even if the Red Hulk is raging a lot more than the Jade Giant ever did, and is chronically in a much worse mood.

I like the idea of a Red Hulk, that is, a different person altogether being a Hulk, and would like to see where Loeb can take this character.

I think it would be very cool to eventually have the 'mindless' or semi-mindless Red Hulk take off for the wilder parts of America and the planet, as the Hulk did during the Bronze Age, and have all sorts of encounters with micro-worlds, Bi-Beasts, Harpies, the Leader, and others, or their equivalents.

Okay, that is actually more understandable than I thought the answer might be. \:\) Thanks for explaining!

I for one loved Planet Hulk from start to finish...

....but I kind of agree with you on WWH. I had high hopes for it, but as I read it I realized there was very little they could actually do with the set up then gave themselves. Some of the tie-ins I thought were great fun though - X-Men and Ant-Man were both funny, and the former also had some really great action scenes (maybe better than many of those in the main series, even).


I actually would like to see Green Hulk back, but I must admit I'm enjoying this new character/story as well. And Pak's Hercules may just end up my favorite thing he's written yet (still have to give it a few issues to cement its place, though I am confident). So the post-WWH landscape is pretty damn interesting even without Banner hulking out (at least in the way we are used to him doing).
