World War Hulk Thread: Don't Be Fucking Ninnies

edited June 2007 in Graphic Violence
So, as we all know, the Illuminati (sans Namor and Professor X) banded together to get rid of Hulk. They did so by tricking him into going to rescue a satellite, then trapping him in a ship and sending him into a wormhole. Since then, Hulk's been getting his smash on and leading a rebellion on the planet Sakaar. As fun as that's been, we all know he can't stay away forever, and when he gets back, bitches (especially Iron Man, Black Bolt, Dr. Strange, and Mr. Fantastic) are going to get the beatdown of their lives.

This is where World War Hulk comes in.

World War Hulk is a summer event miniseries totalling six issues that will also be crossing over with some of the other Marvel heroes. So far, it's been confirmed that there will be a main series, companion issues in The Incredible Hulk, a six issue WWH:Frontline series, and a WWH:X-Men three issue mini.

Newsarama write up of the WWH panel at NYCC

Newsarama interview with WWH:X-Men writer Chris Gage

Newsarama interview with WWH:Frontline writer Paul Jenkins

Newsarama interview with Mark Paniccia, Planet Hulk and World War Hulk editor

CBR interview with Greg Pak, writer of Planet Hulk and World War Hulk

So far, what we know is that Manhattan is going to get fucked up, as usual, and there's going to be a huge X-Men vs. Hulk rumble. I'll add more to this post as more info comes out, at least until the amount of content gets too ridiculous.

EDIT 6: Added new WWH pic

WORLD WAR HULK #1 (of 5)
Written by GREG PAK
Penciled by JOHN ROMITA JR.
Cover by DAVID FINCH
Variant Cover by JOHN ROMITA JR.
Marvel's massive summer smashfest begins! Exiled by a group of Marvel "heroes" to the savage alien planet of Sakaar, the Hulk raged, bled and conquered through the pages of last year's "Planet Hulk" epic, rising from slave to gladiator to king. Now the Hulk returns to Earth to wreak his terrible vengeance on Iron Man, Reed Richards, Dr. Strange and Black Bolt -- and anyone else who gets in his way. Stronger than ever, accompanied by his monstrous Warbound gladiator allies, and possessed by the fiercest and purest rage imaginable, the Hulk may just tear this stupid planet in half. The epic story of anger unbound begins with this special double-sized issue written by "Planet Hulk" scribe Greg Pak and penciled by the legendary John Romita, Jr.

    Yeah it's going to have to be a stronger than usual Hulk if it's going to be a threat to everybody, because there are a scattered few who can one-shot the big green boy when they so choose.

    If I lived in the Marvel Universe, I would not live in Manhattan.

    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.

    Regarding WWH - if it's even marginally as good as Planet Hulk was, I will be thrilled.

    Apparently Hulk will be bringing his "warbound" with him. I take this to mean that he rules Sakaar and will be bringing some allies. Said allies are pretty damn powerful, especially the Spikes, though I don't really think he'd unleash the Spikes on Earth.

    And I wouldn't be so sure about Strange and Black Bolt being safe. Hulk's got some powerful allies on Earth, most notably Sentry and Namor. And when the Illuminati's antics come to light, we'll see who stands with them and who stands against them.

    Black Bolt once put down Hulk with a single whisper, and we know a shout can level an entire world, and a scream can rip a hole in time and space, so we know he's okay.

    Dr. Strange can do similiar things I would imagine.

    Extremis Iron Man is strong and fast and all but uh super-angry Hulk? Yeah.

    Hulk busts into where the inhumans new city is and lays the smackdown, smug with the knowledge that Black Bolt can't do shit to him because any attempt by Blackbolt to use his voice will lead to the destruction of his city and people.

    Man, I don't know about all this. A lot of this art is pretty "meh" if you ask me, especially compared with the rad covers and interior art we've been getting with "Planet Hulk." Plus, the big downside to this war is that Hulk is going to have to lose it, and I really don't want him to. His character is in such a good place now on Sakar, I honestly don't want to see him leave. I am curious, however, as to why Hulk would even bother to invade Earth. It hardly seems worth the trouble, or in character at all, for him to invade just for the shit of it. Maybe Sakar will be in trouble somehow, or that shadow sworn lady that he's banging will get sick/die/be in danger?

    Did Hulk ever fight Galactus to a standstill? No he didn't.

    That is one of most fucking retarded things I've ever read.

    You do not fight with Galactus. Galactus is a universal force, a cosmic being. Didn't the Fantastic Four have to make some kind of deal with him to get him to leave the first time? The Beyonder can't make Galactus do what he wants.

    It would be like if Superman had been able to go toe-to-toe with Imperiex in Our Worlds At War without first getting the Apokolyptian armor and then dunking himself into the sun to become 'evolved'.

    This is why I hate the Sentry. He is a fucking deus ex machina, except unlike Dr. Strange he never shows up unless it's to ruin what would otherwise be a good fight or a proper competition. You see him in the background in Civil War #7, and Hulkling and Hercules are keeping him at bay. But the minute we can get excited about a legendary smackdown in the making, it's "Whoops! Not gonna happen, the Sentry will shut them down."

    This is actually why I'm rooting for a Sentry vs. Hulk fight in WWH. I want Marvel to prove that Sentry isn't a boring plot device, that he's not the effortless ultimatum of strength he's constantly made out to be. I want the Sentry to get the shit beaten out of him, for once.

    My question: How long has the hulk been smart? I know he was smart for awhile a long time ago, but when did he get smart again? Also, how?
