I want to love it but I find I only like it.
I like that Banner is more of the star than Hulk is but I'm not crazy about them upping his brain power (and ego). Not that he always has to be a milquetoast but imo he just comes on too strong. And where the hell did all the Banner-worshipping come from? From the attitudes of the applicants, it's apparent that there are many people that have loved and respected Banner's genius for quite a while. So where were they between 1961 and today when he needed their help?
Three issues in and I still have no idea what "Hulk" we have. Is he Banner, is he "Hulk Smash" or is he just pure animal? He only grunts, growls & smashes, yet he saves Stark? He de-Hulks so fast (and soon). In #1, his strength (i.e. anger) was "incalculable
!" yet he de-Hulked right after an explosion that should have pissed him off even more. Add to Banner saying in #2 that "he" could eat a mountain" and then in #3 he instantly
Hulk-ed up to smash the robot (and I'm guessing he just as instantly de-Hulked so as not to destroy SHIELD HQ). Where is the Banner/Hulk conflict?
I do love the villains so far (Mad Thinker, Quintronic Man & Iron Man) but I can do without Hill. The new supporting cast could be a nice addition (and I expect a big storyline (and or powers) for Jessup (why else would he be from Manchester, Alabama?
Yu? He's the worst part of the book imo.
