This was actually my first attempt at a 100-page issue, as it was created before the Cat cover that I posted earlier. I was glad to be able to include a shout out to Marvel/DC’s Batman Vs. The Incredible Hulk tabloid issue, probably my favorite team-up comic of all time, and a definite inspiration for this blog.
Well, with the Avengers film, we will have out third Hulk in as many movie appearances. I am not too worried, as I think Mark Ruffalo is a talented actor and I’d rather The Hulk have more screentime than Banner anyway. It will be sweet to see him go toe to toe with the likes of Thor and Iron Man! Ang Lee’s Hulk film had a nice 20 minute desert sequence, but the rest was kind of misguided… Leterrier’s follow up was much better, and I really liked the design of their CGI Hulk – looked like a Sal Buscema version of the character. So hopefully, the momentum will continue and we will get the best on-screen Hulk appearance yet. I’d love to see interest grow again, because I was really looking forward to a sequel to his solo film, this time featuring The Leader.
