The destructive beast Hulk feels more like an absence of Banner, like he's left the driving seat and all that power is running amok. I can see how that could be visually interesting - especially what Joe's take on it would be, that gives me ideas - but it's not something I'd want as a long-term status quo, because it's clearly not as interesting to me as the Hulk as a genuine second (or third, or fourth, or fifth) personality. And that's probably my issue with the "Hulkspeak" childlike Hulk as well, he's just too safe, too mapped and explored. Our Hulk feels like new territory, like Banner's generated this new version to cope with his own death and resurrection, and we're kind of mapping and exploring him as we go. -- Al Ewing

It's only 6 months after the game was released, but I was still excited to read the first issue of Spider-man: City at war.

PRESS START ON A BRAND-NEW MARVEL UNIVERSE! Showered with worldwide acclaim, the blockbuster Marvel’s Spider-Man has everyone’s spider-sense buzzing! Now you can experience the emotional and shock-filled story that takes favorite characters (including Mary Jane, Aunt May, Norman Osborn, Otto Octavius and Miles Morales) and spins them into an all-new and unexpected web of drama, spectacle, and classic Spidey action in the Mighty Marvel Manner… with more original stories to come! After years of seeing Wilson Fisk escape criminal prosecution, the wise-cracking web-slinger finally has the opportunity to team with the PDNY to help them arrest his fearsome foe. But when the Kingpin of Crime is removed from the mean streets of the Big Apple, how will the mysterious Mister Negative’s ascent to power bring Peter Parker’s civilian world and Spider-Man’s superhuman worlds crashing together? Plus: All-new story moments never seen in the game and bonus behind-the-scenes content!

Now, the PS4 game is close to the most fun you can have with a PS4.=
The story is good fun, the world is big and real, and you do feel Spider-man-ish. It's got a good status quo where MJ is an investigative reporter, JJJ is a radio shock jock, Peter is established as spider-man and evicted from his apartment, and Spidey works alongside a police detective to fight some Fisky crime.
I toured the High Line, took a selfie in a hostage situation, webbed a thug to a car and then watched the car race away with him through traffic, webbed up a bunch of criminals from the rafters like I was a going to eat them, swung around in my scants and listened to J. Jonah Jameson learn about shipping wars.
And now the comic )
I'm miffed
