It's still very strange to me, the whole group of freaks (Hulk, Red She Hulk, A-Bomb, and the the other members). The whole idea of a "Hulk Family" just doesn't sit well with me. I like the Hulk as a solo creature, to be honest, not a leader of a bunch of misfits.
EXACTLY Dana! Hulk writers are obviously struggling to create stories around an essentially one-dimensional character. Originally there was Betty, Rick and Ross as supporting characters but there's only so far you can go with this. The Hulk got all soapy under PAD, then Kermit Gladiator in space and now this 'family' nonsense. The Red Hulk story was probably the most moronic series of Marvel comics I've ever seen, but judging the Hulk fan's recent bleatings I'd say they were well satisfied LOL.
You look at Thor and he has a great supporting cast and a wide, extensive canvas. he is the stuff of myth and legend, but can also travel into space and probably still across time.
If I were writing Hulk I would focus on building up an arch nemesis and making a hero of the character once again. The misunderstood misanthrope is old and tired and yeah, I too find that whole smirking tough guy routine mildly revolting.
