Red Hulk smash?

02.18.2008

In an attempt to capitalize on the upcoming summer release of THE INCREDIBLE HULK, Marvel comics is looking to revitalize its "Hulk" comic line. And by revitalize I mean "completely f*ck with." Beginning in "Hulk #2" readers will see a new Hulk - one that is red. Who this new Hulk is (it may or may not be Banner) remains to be seen but he is "a thinking, calculating, brutal weapon-toting kind of Hulk" according to creator mastermind Jeph Loeb. (*cough*HELLBOY*cough*....) Loeb, a former producer for "Lost" and currently at "Heroes," came up with the concept to bring "danger" back to the comic and the character. All you Hulk purists can rest somewhat easier with reassurances that green Hulk will return in "Hulk #4" to "do battle." The move is just the latest in a series of publicity stunts by Marvel to help boost interest on their classic character books. In 2007 Marvel killed of Captain America and broke up the marriage of Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson. How about one day we do a Hulk battle royal with Green, Red and Grey all facing off to do battle? Maybe they can throw in a yellow or blue Hulk for good measure...

Extra Tidbit: "Hulk #2" goes on sale Wednesday.

Best ...

... Hulk story I've read is 4 issue mini series 'Banner' written by Brian Azzarello & art by Richard Corben. It really treats the monster in a more realistic manner, ie: when the Hulk goes apeshit in New York hundreds of people die when he knocks over buildings.

Lately Marvel has pretty much lost me as a reader as they've not bothered to mature. Their titles have remained what I call "kiddie-capes".

Typical Joe Q Marvel

I've been a Hulk fan for well over 20 years now, and all I gotta say is add this up to Joe Q writing off a bad idea on a character he knows nothing about. This series is delayed not even 4 issues in, and the storyline is going to be predictible as hell. The guy needs to loose his job, he is worthless as Editor-In-Chief.

Having read issue #1, I am almost certain that Rick Jones is the red Hulk. For which I have 2 questions:

1.) How did it happen?

2.) Why is he red? Banner's Hulk was originally grey because he was outside exposed to sunlight; he didn't turn green for a few more issues. Also, Grey Hulk is smaller & relatively weaker than Green, so I'm curious as to where Red fits on the scale.

Crayola Presents: The Hulks!

As long as it's not Bruce's long lost brother that just so happened to be hiding on Gamma Base during the testing and was collecting soil samples when the bomb went off.

Oh crap. I hope that's not it.
Sorry if I spoiled it.

I'm wondering when Burnt Sienna Hulk or Ecru Hulk will be debuting.

Paisley Hulk will come with a CD of his greatest hits WITH a bonus track of him and Beyonce doing a duet.

Shortly before he hurled her into the Sun.

The Hulk was dangerous anyway! He's a big angry green thing that will smash through anything to get to you. I don't think changing his color and giving him a weapon is a substitute for poor writing. If that is all this is really about I'm going to be very disappointed.
