badficwriter: Captain America holding hands with Iron Man-Let's not fight, let's get along (Cap/Iron Man-Let's not fight)

What happens when you lose your script immunity?

Hulk 25 and 26.



Iron Man vs. the Red Hulk!

Flashback to the climactic end of Fall of the Hulks:

(Red Hulk was General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross, for those who were living in a cave)


The end mirrors the end of World War Hulk, with Hulk and Steve Rogers coming to see Rulk in prison:



The prison was designed by Bruce Banner. Rulk is left in a zero-gravity chamber for three days, screaming and yelling that he knows he's too powerful to be left to rot.



Steve demands Rulk power down to human form. Then he hits him with a hypo.



Bruce says that he already beat Rulk at his full power. He doesn't need an edge against Ross. They glare at each other.



Bruce explains that the Intelligencia activated a program called "Scorched Earth". Doomsday weapons to destroy the world if they couldn't rule it. Steve says that he doesn't trust Rulk and that he'll be partnering up til Ross earns his trust again.

Since the first mission is some sort of make-people-robot-monsters (much like Omac) virus in Silicon Valley, Rulk will be working with Iron Man. Rulk arrives first.



SMACK PAGE!



Smack, smack.



Tony then gets smacked by the computer virus possessed people.

Hulk 26. Half page scan.

Rulk manages to convince Tony that he was, indeed, sent by Steve Rogers.



For the record, except for a few intensely stupid issues, I actually enjoyed Fall of the Hulks.

Funny thing how Ross was always after Hulk, and now almost everyone dislikes Red Hulk even more.

Hung for treason? Shit, he'll suffer worst. He'll go down in history as the giant hypocrit that he is as well as one of America's greatest enemies. He'll be a huge disgrace the likes of which would have people vandalizing his grave and villainizing him in biopics. Alos, let's not forget Betty.

I liked that idea better when it was the climax of the episode "Patriot Act" in JLU.

'Sfunny how hard Marvel has worked on quasi-rehabbing Norman Osborn into 616's version of Lex Luthor or somethin'... while they decided Thunderbolt Ross was just a huge, angry douchebag.

Right now, Jeff Parker and Greg Pak have the unpleasant job of cleaning up after Jeph Loeb. They're doing a lot better than you'd think.

Have to say, I have minimal knowledge of the Red Hulk, and even less interest, but I'm unimpressed by Steve and Tony's complete failure to communicate, Tony drops a call from Steve? Really? Doesn't matter it's the start of a mission, end of a mission, or when you're having the best sex of your life... when STEVE ROGERS calls you, YOU PICK UP!

People tend to develop poor hearing when it comes to beating the hell out of Rulk.

I have to hand it to Marvel, they made Rulkie so wonderfully hateable that I can't help but love these comics where he's getting his ass kicked every issue.

[personal profile] stolisomancer 2010-11-27 12:16 pm (UTC)(link)
Contextually, it's not that Tony deliberately dropped the call. It's that he's closing in on an area that's putting off heavy electromagnetic interference and it meant Steve's call didn't quite get through. He didn't actually hang up on Steve.

Well, I seem to notice in other things that Tony and Steve haven't exactly been getting along, even now. (for good reason, however. Tony did some awful things, even if he can't remember them now)

I STILL WANNA KNOW what happens to Ross' mustache when he turns into the Red Hulk. Really. Does it just POOF away? Or is he wearing a snap on mustache? That's the real mystery.

Hmm, lemme take a crack at this one.

The hair on his face is rooted back in his lips, and it's alot fleshier than his scalp. So when he transforms and gets bigger, his mustache is figuratively 'sucked-in', and pokes back out again when he deflates?

Heh... How would you like to see that special effect on a movie screen?

Eh, in my rpg setting, I made General Ryker the Red Hulk (Makes more sense to me), and Ross is not a Hulk at all (If I do make him a Hulk, I'd make hm the version from that What if).

The Hulk's appearance is based on a psychological image of Banner's inner monster. In the past, when Banner has had a beard or other distinguishing feature, it disappeared when he became the Hulk with few exceptions.

In the case of Rulk, Ross thinks of himself as a Hulk and therefore imitates the Hulk's appearance upon transformation. Basically, he's a low-level shapeshifter.

The mustache is where Ross stores all the red color when he's in human form. When he becomes Hulk, it has to flood into him. He has a special fast-acting nanodye that kicks in when he transforms back to humans, to coat it in grey color so that nobody suspects he has a massive red 'stache.

Side note: One part of Banner's body is always large and green.

Wait...we have a big blue Abomination who never seems to get anything done despite his young, hip attitude and general stance of goodness...and a big red virile Hulk who brags about being the best at everything and hates everyone and is a bitter old man inside...

Do I smell a complicated political metaphor?

Rick is in his own back-up story in Parker's Hulk book these days, fighting giant monsters and saving Florida while having fun. He does a lot.

I do not follow this book, but I have to say: I very much enjoyed what I saw here. And especially Tony doing what he does.

And after all, it's a grand Marvel tradition: heroes misunderstand each other, start fighting.

Oh, and Loeb: bite me. Bite us all. The writer whose job it is to ruin things needlessly.

So are Bruce and Hulk still disparate personalities? Because it looks like they're pretty interchangeable at this point. Is Bruce able to switch back and fork from human to Hulk-form without any personality dissonance?
