In the final issue of Jonathan Hickman's Fantastic Four before it switched over to FF, the Thing is mourning the loss of a teammate. How does one of the world's strongest superheroes work out his anger?

Hopefully Mephisto isn't around when he gets to the bargaining stage )

Nikoleta Harrow's story largely was Marvel Knights: Hulk.

(That wasn't a bad thing; the Hulk's suited to playing a reactive role.)

The four-issue Joe Keatinge/Piotr Kowalski mini opened with Bruce Banner face down in the Seine. A lady pulled him out and took him home to her uncle's spare apartment. The next day, she took him to a bar for a drink.

There, two men on his trail confronted him. Amnesiac, he fled; determined, they followed.

On their boss's orders, they injected themselves with a green serum that transformed them into towering Hulks. They pursued Banner through the streets and the Metro, catching his subway car and hurling it into the Louvre.

Then they exploded.

Bruce, the only survivor, was taken into the police's custody.

Then he was explosively abducted by Nikoleta Harrow, who took him off to her base in Pripyat and tried to make him turn into the Hulk she needed.

Her efforts failed. )

In light of the recent posts from[personal profile] history79 I figured I'd share the first 'Marvel Zombies' miniseries which branched off from 'Ultimate Fantastic Four'.

'Marvel Zombies' was a pretty fun idea at first. I think Marvel deserves some kudos for letting their characters be used in such a horrific fashion and Kirkman really went wild with the concept in ways that Millar did not. Plus they got to 'own' the term when prior Marvel Zombies was a pejorative term for Marvel fans.

Of course, Marvel is as Marvel does and they ran the franchise into the ground. They've released five versions of the same hardcover with different covers for collectors. There have been over 50 issues at this point that feature the zombies in one form or another. I think at one point there was a "Marvel Apes vs Marvel Zombies" miniseries to get an idea of how far it's gone.

Disclaimer: The following story is very gory and features tons of zombie-related violence. But you didn't need me to tell you that, did you?

This was a really hard choice I was remembering how many great Else Worlds there where in the crop of annuals from '94, and I already posted my favourite What If to use for favourite male character... This one ranks a little bit lower for me but it's still a neat concept.

The Beyonder and Galactus kill each other and Reed Richards in the final battle of the Secret Wars leaving the heroes trapped on that strange world. 25 years later there is peace, and a new generation of super powered youngsters.

Remember kids: when a limo with diplomatic plates offers you a lift in New York City -- DON'T GET IN. It's a creepy super-villain who just wants to use you for your body.

PS: These scans came from The Incredible Hulk DVD-Rom Collection from 2007. I mention this because: 1) Marvel deserves a shout-out for authorizing such a fantastic product (although unfortunately I think it may be out of print), and 2) If there is anything specific you'd like to see I've probably got it on here; feel free to leave a request in this post.

Marvel have a LOT of publicity going for their Guardians of the Galaxy characters, and with the likes of Chris Pratt (who kept the Star Lord costume so he could make Hospital visits to sick kids in it), some very good PR, so I can only applaud them for this
