Hulk #005 (The More Things Change...)

Postby HNutz » Thu Aug 14, 2014 4:42 pm

So I sorta dropped Hulk when I heard Waid was leaving 4 issues into this run but decided to give the new Hulk writer a chance.

The prologue (a.k.a. Waid's run) - Bruce Banner is shot in the head, severely affecting both Banner & Hulk. Hulk is eventually healed, thanks to Tony Stark & Extremis. But he's... changed.

Image

Duggan's run - Hulk is now smart. Calling himself "Doc Green" and sporting a mohawk, he gets his S.H.I.E.L.D team of scientists to mix up a batch of a gamma cure he whipped up recently (Earlier, they showed him taking down a country's gamma powered weapons) and nanites capable of surviving in his system. He needs adamantium to make the nanites, so where to go besides Kang's trophy room at the end of time?(That's where the scene on the variant cover comes from)

Anyhow, they get the adamantium and his team gets the cure ready to go. They wonder if Doc Green knows the cure won't work on him? But, if not him... then who? Well, there's that appearance by Rick Jones/Abomination at the end... Talk about being an "A-hole"!

Oh, yeah, and when asked about Banner and if he's okay (who's shown banging away inside "Hulk"), Doc Green simply says
"That depends on your definition of 'okay'." Yeah, that's not exactly reassuring...

I'm enjoying this so far, even if it does remind me of Superior Spider-Man & Armor Wars. I always like Bagley's work and this is no exception. 8)

Thoughts?

That's a lot of blackout. :D

I like Duggan on Deadpool so I decided to stick around but I haven't gotten this yet.

Sounds like the Peter David era all over again.

I really like the story but it is very hard to enjoy completely because the artwork is awful! I do not think Bagley should be on this book. He doesn't draw a good Hulk at all. He was fine on Ultimate Spider-Man but I truly dislike his work on this book.

He's pretty much only good when drawing Spidey, IMO.

I kept looking at this at the shop tonight, but decided to wait til I've read some reviews. I might grab it next week since it'll be a smaller week.

I just always dislike his art. I'm really glad to see Dugan get a shot on a serious book so I'll give him the shot at least till it's not good.

HNutz nailed it - This new Hulk isn't much more than a regurgitation of PAD and Michelinie/Layton work.

And how does Hulk (sorry Dr. Green :roll: ) sport a mohawk? His healing factor has always regrown his hair before - why/how is it selective now?

If this story makes Rick just a guy again - good. Rick can dabble with powers sometimes, but he's always worked best as a simple human in extraordinary situations.

I'll give this one more issue, but I'm done unless something fresh or original happens.
