Nah Rick Jones is the Abomination. Ross is the Red Hulk. :-D

It's so great that we've seen the three Hulk villains, guys who represented all the aspects of Hulk's personality, changed and destroyed so well over the last couple years.

Ross was the man that acted like a monster despite his outward appearance. The Leader was the mad scientist who took Banner's ideas to insane extremes. And the Abomination was the monster who chose to be a monster.

Now we have Ross turning himself, willingly, into all he's ever hated and becoming some sort of hero for some reason. The Abomination dies so that he can be replaced by two heroic monsters. There's literally more than half a dozen Hulk-types running around. The Leader is no more, and for some reason now Aaron has decided to turn Banner (the man who's very first action was to save someone's life, thereby cursing himself) into the new Leader.

That's some amazing writing.

Loeb fucked up Hulk so much that no matter who came after was doomed to fail.

Much like G Dubya did with America.

I'm shocked Lowb didn't take Samson, have someone scalp him and surgically graft his scalp and hair to someone else's head and have a new Samson running around.

Whose a hulk villain and bald? Oh, Absorbing Man. He can turn his body into anything but will always have long flowing green gamma locks.

I'd describe this issue as very average. Nothing came across to me as all that bad, but not much really stood out as all that good either. I really liked the conversation between Sandman and the Wizard, but that was the only moment that stood out for me.

This will get a 5 out of 10 from me.
