The final issue of ‘Stay Angry’ is here, and it’s yet another outrageously fun issue from Jason Aaron. Hulk wakes up in a secret underground prison in the middle of Antarctica which was built by the League Of Nations a hundred years ago and has just been forgotten about, even with it’s cute old-timey robots. Wolverine and The Thing are sent to find out why Hulk is there, and a hugely entertaining fight breaks out. We’ve seen these 3 fight each other many times before, but Aaron managed to work in some new bits, I particularly liked Hulk making Wolverine stab himself and the absolute ownage he gave to The Thing when he broke of a piece of his face and CRUSHED IT INTO POWDER. Oh yes. It’s also great to have a fight scripted by a writer who knows these characters really well, Aaron is of course closely associated with Wolverine, but his take on Ben Grimm was equally strong. The artwork from Carlos Pacheco was great too, and it’s probably the best work I’ve seen from him in a long while, when he has time to just do one issue, he’s awesome, it’s when he has to do a longer storyline that his work becomes scruffy and rushed. In the end, Hulk escapes from Wolverine and Thing by turning back into Banner, and we find out just what it is this crazy ride has been leading up to… Banner has taken all of the different artefacts he’s collected and synthesised them into a cure for the Hulk! Of course, we know it’s not going to work, but I’m interested to see what’s going to happen next, and how Aaron’s run will dovetail into what Waid has coming up.
