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

WARLOCK AND THE INFINITY WATCH #13 features a fight between Drax the Destroyer and the Professor Hulk. This is when Drax was child-like (as a result of being resurrected via the Soul Gem) and when the Hulk was smart (either merged Hulk or a brand new alternate personality, depending on who you ask).

Some speculation about the new GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY movie and its connection to the greater MCU after the cut.

How much of Arthur Douglas is there? )

'Stan and Jack created something fifty years ago that nobody in comics had ever done. They created the very first tragic superhero. Thing has a little tragedy to him as well, but he had a family and friends. Bruce Banner was the absolute tragic hero, the first of them.

'The problem there is that for the next fifty years, especially now — go to the New 52 and throw a stick and try not to hit somebody who thinks their powers are a curse. It’s become so played out and so cliché in my mind, the whole “woe is me, I have superpowers and it’s terrible..."'

In The Incredible Hulk #143-144, Dr. Doom kidnaps and brainwashes Bruce Banner in hopes of Bruce making him a gamma bomb. But, like a lot of Incredible Hulk stories, #144 shifts the focus onto a different protagonist: Doom's love interest Valeria, who is also an unwilling guest.
...and Valeria is NHF Doom's shenanigans )

'The phrase "faith in a higher power" is like nails on a blackboard to me, partly because my life and my interests are defined by science and hard knowledge, and partly (I'm sure) because as a kid growing up in the Bible Belt, I had a lot of first-hand experience with seeing how often "faith in a higher power" becomes an excuse to not take responsibility for your own decisions. (That's a generalization, and I know that, but we're talking about the programming I received as a kid, which is hard to shake.)'

'Or, Graeme, to put it all way more succinctly than that—on a personal level, I have little if any use for faith.'

In 1968 Marvel created a fantastic character called Yuri Brevlov, who was basically the USSR's Nick Fury. He and Fury had a Team Up in the Incredible Hulk. It was awesome. Then, Marvel pretty much forgot about him (I could only track down a small appearance in the 80s).


Marvel needs to bring this man back. I will show you why.

Previously in Planet Hulk

You hear all the time in comics solicits that the hero is going to lose everything this issue. The Incredible Hulk #105 is one of the rare times that this is true. Up until this point, the Hulk and Banner had both found happiness on Sakaar. The Hulk was a hero, and he was making the world a better place. For forty years of our time, the Hulk had been an outcast and a loner. Now he has friends, family, and acceptance in a world that really needs his guidance.

(7 pages from The Incredible Hulk #105)

Sadly, it was too good to last. )

Evidently, Fury taught Hill well on how to screw others over to get a job done.

Honestly, while it has some faults, this is probably the most consistently good Avengers book to come out of Marvel NOW, and its not even really an Avengers title. Its got a sense of humor and features some awesome characters, and Spencer’s really proving himself a decent writer.

So yeah, read it.
