    They changed it into being Mieks fault for some stupid reason so that the heroes weren't responsible, however indirectly, for genocide but regardless it was their ship and their generator which was capable of being manipulated to such ends and so they are responsible, however inadvertently for the destruction of most of Sakaar and the fact that Hulks 2nd son is on his way to fuck shit up because his mom is dead.

    They "changed" it to being Miek's fault because they understand that one of Hulk's major themes is misplaced aggression, and they have some basic sense of storytelling and drama.

    I don't think it was "changed" to be Miek's fault.

    that's the point TLB

    it's dumb because they spent two years on a mystery everyone already knew the answer to

    well see the identity of rulk was damned predictable

    and red she-hulk was even easier as there isn't really any other non-already hulked out female members in the hulk's supporting cast

    I vote we move discussion of Red Hulk's reveal to the Bitching Thread.

    I know. I just don't see the absurdity of who they are.

    It really is the only answers that aren't absurd.

    Shoulda been The Hypno Hustler and Dazzler

    they could have started a band with Skaar and Green Hulk

    and it would have been the best thing

    Teen Wolf is no Back to School.

    My point remains, why are editors wussies these days? Jim Shooter used to eat roofing nails and wash it down with a bottle of bourbon before stabbing a pickpocketer in Times Square every day in the 80's.

    The wild coke and underage-sex parties of the 80's for Comic Editors are no more.

    I saw the Betty Ross reveal in IH #609, and I can handle that, but I absolutely refuse to believe in the absurdity of the Red Hulk being Gen. Ross until I see it with my own eyes (before tearing them out)!

    Osborn had no authority in Russia so that can't be so. Such an American thing to do. Damn yankees.

    "Oh, Simon, how can you say that?" Steve is so condescending in that preview.

    And Simon has a point about the whole thing (so he'll inevitably turn into a villain because we can't have Steve be wrong). Secret Invasion or WWH wasn't an Avengers thing (that was the Illuminati), but the others, bingo bango.

    Next Avengers are the animated DVD kids, right?

    Hopefully Bendis has Busiek on speed dial to deal with Immortus, because you can't beat tying everything into a nice package like he did with Avengers Forever.

    Yeah, though judging by the different costumes these kids are probably from a splinter version of that world

    It's too bad Pym's not going along so he can be utterly crushed by finding a world where he lived happily ever after with Jan and had a son (until Ultron killed them)

    Yeah, Kang is on the list (and Kang is Immortus).

    And yeah, they're making Simon out to be a bad guy it seems, he's on the cover for #2 or #3 being all angry energy at the team.

    Coming full circle I see since Wonderman was one of the original Avenger villains along with Immortus and Kang and Zemo.

    What exactly happened in the DR: Lethal Legion mini? Perhaps knowing that might help explain Simon's current opinion about the Avengers.

    Wonder Man and his brother Grim Reaper recruited some villains to kill Norman Osborn, Grim Reaper double crossed Simon, and he was put in jail and got the shit beat out of him I think.
