Well, what’s interesting about the story that Brian Bendis has crafted for Civil War II is the superhero community’s reaction to Bruce’s death really runs the gamut -- and it should. Hawkeye kills Bruce under very questionable -- and debatable -- circumstances: Did Bruce pose a clear and present danger? Was Bruce going to “Hulk out”? Was Ulysses’ vision of the future about to come to pass? Reasonable minds can -- and do -- disagree about all of these questions.

The primary reason -- in my mind -- as to why there is so much debate within the superhero community is that many -- if not all -- of these questions come down to what Hawkeye thought was going to happen.

"Fans may be outraged, and there are probably Hawkeye writers who I'm very good friends with who will also be offended," said series writer Brian Bendis. "But the point is that everything that happens in this issue is in character when you discover the hows and whys and wheres."

CBR News: He definitely has a long history at both Marvel and DC. This week brought news of midnight sales next month for "Civil War II" #3, which clearly positions that as a very important issue, with what's billed as a major character death. We talked a lot last week about War Machine's death; given the early promotion around this upcoming death -- including a Joe Quesada variant of the unnamed fallen hero -- is it fair to say this is expected internally to have an even bigger impact?

Axel Alonso: Yes. It's a big character and his or her death is a major turning point in the story. And the scene in which they die -- everyone will be talking about.

I was going to post this tomorrow, but since Marvel has no damn patience...

"For most readers over the decades, “Thunderbolt” Ross has been the preeminent figure representing the military, and always holding that military role in opposition to super-powered people. But from years of being so close to the fire in essence, he’s been burned–he’s become the thing he fought for so long. And he completely did it to himself, he can’t blame anyone else. It leaves him in a very interesting place for a character.

He’s reached the end of one life and is beginning another, and though we may resent him for a lot of reasons, we can empathize with him at the same time. And he was never evil, just wrong headed. Seeing the world through the eyes of being a Hulk is a big transformation beyond being able to punch through a mountain. I think readers will see some of their friends and family and even themselves in Ross.

We'll get back Loeb's run later, but here's what came after it and I think we'll all agree, this is sooo much better.

...I figured some of you might get a kick out of this artist's pieces combining them with various cartoon-related characters (and others).

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. )
