    Let's make a comparison to 9/11. Oh and then let's have Sally bitch and moan and suggest shooting -all- the heroes into space considering how well shooting Hulk into space worked out. Then let's have her give Daredevil the finger like any of it is his fault.

    I haven't read the issue but did Sally bother to go into any details about how she planned to accomplish that one? Especially consider the only thing the Civil War proved was that only Supers are capable of policing other Supers.....

    Actually that'd be a really really great way to solve the problem of the worlds most singularly retarded journalist. Sally starts bitching and moaning at the Sentry, he gets sick of her and rips her in half and throws her into the sun.

    Ok, aftersmash kind of irritated me.. it was ok in some ways.

    But DAMN, do they know how to fuck up stuff that they did so so right.

    We go from PH with an accident that ended an awesome storyline, and a possible bug involvement with causing/triggering the accident... Illuminati still culpable to some of the blame.

    WWH ends with Miek seeing the Red King/anti Hulk people tossing some old warp core into the shuttle (still makes no sense mind you) and the illuminati not being totally exonerated but still removed from most guilt.

    Now we have aftersmash where the Illuminati are totally without blame, Miek being solely responsible for the whole thing, and essentially everything good about PH has been stripped away save "maybe" a few new characters to use (what's left of the warbound).

    Ugh, it just irritates me when they "fix" things in such a shitty way.

    What is with people and thier hard on for being able to blame the Illuminati for everything?

    They are at fault for putting everyone in this situation to begin with, but the explosion has always been Miek's fault.

    No, it wasn't "always" Miek's fault. The explanation in WWH for it didn't place the blame solely on him, and didn't even fit or make sense regardless. But even if they wanted to have him share some blame, that's just it... he shared a part of it.

    Illuminati members don't have to (and shouldn't) be 100% responsible, but they should have realized what they did was wrong. As it stands now, they are 100% not to blame because nothing they did wound up sticking to them. Hulk came back, he smashed, he saved, and ultimately got betrayed by one of his own with an explanation that didn't even fit in.

    Not even the apeshit Sentry Tony let loose came back to haunt them since the Hulk took care of it then Stark "saved the day" and everything was a ok.

    I just wanted to see them realize that the shit they did was wrong and be culpable for it, just like they expected everyone else to be. Strange and Prof X are the only two that came close to that.

    How so?

    Hulk sees shuttle go boom, blames Illuminati (either for sending it or for planning it, it was never 100% sure). During PH it's mentioned that the shuttle had a warp core... so it's pretty natural for people to assume that's the one that went boom. The shuttle alerting to it enforced that. Miek/Brood messing with it was alluded to, but in no way confirmed or solid.


    WWH ends with Hulk fighting Sentry, who went nuts because Tony told him he had to "play God" and he lost control. Hulk stops him after a big drag out fight. He'd already commented that he was not going to kill anyone, he stopped it right there, he was just going to smash NYC "eye for an eye" style and leave the Illuminati and allies defeated and humbled before going off to do whatever he was going to do.
    Then the Illuminati get"off the hook" since Miek then explains how he saw people loading some other warp core onto the shuttle (which makes no sense due to the items already established in PH) and then him being shown as a traitor for not informing anyone. And also, he stabbity's Rick.

    At that point it wasn't a full cop out yet. The Illuminati members still had some blame. People were still angry at them, and there were still things they had to answer for and think about. Aftersmach basically puts them right back where they started, they might as well have not had WWH at all, just have some nameless villain smash NYC and it would have been almost the exact same. The only potential saving grace will be the new characters/teamups that come out of it (Herk/Cho, Warbound, Son of Hulk) and maybe the Hulk himself, but all of that is up in the air.

    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.

    I don't understand how you can continue to say blaming the ship exploding on Miek is a "cop-out" when it was clearly always the intended outcome. Yeah it's not 100% clear at the end of Planet Hulk that he did it but thats because they didn't want to give away the end to WWH.

    The Illuminati still fucked up big time, I'm sorry that you can't blame them for the death of a planet too.

    We haven't quite explored all of the repercusions of WWH just yet, but from what I've read of Aftersmash (which I thought was awesome), what EG's said seems pretty accurate. The Illuminati (or at least Iron Man) seems to have been given a free pass. I mean, even Thing, Peter, and Cage had nothing but jokes for him when they saw him. I expected at least Spidey to say "What the hell were you thinking, man?" re.: sending Hulk into space.

    We haven't seen reactions to Richards, Strange, or Black Bolt yet, but Iron Man's still Director of Shield like nothing happened. Technically, they didn't do anything illegal, but you'd expect at least some backlash from the super hero community. Nobody wants to see these guys hanged or anything, we just want to see them acknowledge that they made a big mistake.

    Maybe that'll come after everything's cleaned up though. For now, it seems like all the heroes are just trying to piece the city back together. Maybe that's the point of the book.

    Side note - I love how Amadeus has just totally switched his man-crush from Hulk to Herc. Little guy likes being around big strong people, I guess. Maybe it comes from being smart but physically puny. Sounds like some psychology there...

    I don't want the Illuminati hanged, just accountable, which is what one of the big points of WWH seemed to be early on. Making those who felt they were above everyone and the law be accountable.

    Miek is a cop out because at first it was shown as an accident with "possible" undertones of betrayal by Miek and Brood. Then it was shown to be sabotage in which Miek wasn't involved but stayed silent (yet still went contrary to facts presented in PH). Now everyone is blaming Miek for the whole thing.

    It stinks because now that they have someone who is to blame for part of it, he's to blame for all of it... PROBLEM SOLVED FOREVER! Even though the Illuminati, Hulk, Warbound, and everyone else with some part to blame should obviously know that it's not.

    I just don;t like how with all the growth and characters in Planet Hulk, and even parts of the Hulk, it still wound up being "Hulks a monster and so are his buddies" and no one else had to step up and say they screwed up.

    See, but they would probably do something shady like only offer supervillain insurance with damage caused by superhero's as an additional coverage.

    Then there's the whole "they aren't a superhuman, they are a meta/demihuman" issue. Not even getting into aliens and creatures from another dimension, or normal humans using advanced weapons, magic, etc.

    But it'd be like claiming the flood wasn't the problem with Katrina, it was the winds and the levy breaking, so it's not covered by FLOOD insurance.

    A court of law would go "Was it above and beyond human capability? Than it is SUPER-human." and the insurance company would have a giant block smudge.

    I was re-reading Planet Hulk last night and noticed something that I missed the first time:

    According to the Gladiator Guidebook, Sakaar is in the Tayo star system. There are two inhabitable planets in the system; Sakaar and Gangalo, which is described as "a humid world with exotic vegetation and fungal lifeforms" but no evidence of sentient life.

    According to "Planet Cho" in Incredible Hulk #100, the Illuminati meant to send the Hulk to "BR-54 in the Tayo System." Is this the same Tayo system that Sakaar is in? Was Gangalo the Hulk's original destination? And does the destination planet depicted to What If: Planet Hulk match the description of Gangalo? (it's not obvious to me that it does.)
