Hulk #56 (So you're saying 'attack' Spoilers)

Rulk spends most of this issue lying on the ground half dead, but it’s nevertheless an entertaining story. In his attempt to take the fight to the Mayan Gods, Rulk gets half-absorbed and defeated. Luckily, Machine Man is still useful even as little spider-machine and can go sneaking around to find out the origins of these villains. It’s an interesting story that reveals that these Mayans got their powers from Terrigen Crystals, which makes them an off-shoot of the Inhumans. I’m a sucker for this kind of use of obscure Marvel Lore, and I just hope any ancient Mayan readers weren’t offended at Parker revealing their gods to be a sham! Even though they aren’t actually Gods, they are still a big threat to the world and the Red Hulk, so it’s going to be interesting to see what happens next time, things certainly look dire. With this title changing its name and title character, could we be seeing the death of Rulk? Nooooo! Dale Eaglesham once again does brilliantly on the art, I continue to love his panel layouts here, even when most of the issue is spent lying down, it looks great!

The big thing that this issue made me think about (what with Rulk lying there half dead), do we know that he is going to still be around after his series ends and for Marvel NOW? Are they going to get rid of him? Does anyone know?
