    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.


Hulk fan(atic)s would argue that he isn't one dimensional (due to the layers of psychological issues he has), but when you get down to it, Hulk is all about primal rage and being the "strongest one there is." That's OK is (very) small doses, but overall it's waaay to juvenile for me.

    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.


Thor is epic fantasy/sci-fi/Shakespearian family drama/super heroics/sci-fi/space opera all rolled into one. The possibilities are ENDLESS when you get down to Thor and his cast of characters, not to mention the Nine Worlds and their various denizens.

    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.

Get Hulk back to his basics. That's when the character worked best, I say.
