I may come back to it, because I may have been unfair. I was expecting something DD amazing.
After DD, Hulk is definitely a let down (especially in the art)(but also the story...)
I'm just not accepting of this new Banner. His ego is just too drastic a change for me to recognize him. He's taking delight in the fear he causes people about the possibility of him Hulking up. It strikes me as sadistic.
And then there things like Hill saying that SHIELD isn't equipped for under water battle that just pulls this old time comic fan right out of the story. First - it's SHIELD! and for SHIELD to be ill-prepared for Atlantis or Lemurian attacks is just stupid. Second, SHIELD made an underwater attack as early as 1966 (Strange Tales #146) and an actual Helicarrier was deployed underwater in Jurgen's Captaiun America #46 (2001) . Yes, this is complete nitpicking - but this is Mark Waid, who is as much a historian of comics as he is a writer. He should know better.
And while I'm on the nitpicking...
The Chinese have an aquacarrier but we aren't even "equipped for under water war" (despite my evidence to the contrary)?
Isn't Banner the guy who was just insane a few weeks ago (MU time) during Aaron's run? And SHIELD trusts him with the only known piece of Uru?
The very moment Banner is on the Chinese carrier, he's basically attacked. Yet oh so noticeably convenient, he only Hulks up the moment he's ejected.
As I said, stuff like this just pulls me out of the book. This doesn't happen with Waid's Daredevil. And that's why, to me, Indestructible Hulk is by far
the lesser book of the two.
