First, Dynamite Comics did a new version of Turok: Dinosaur Hunter. Now, on the heels of that, they've launched the latest interpretation of Magnus: Robot Fighter.

I was going to post more of this, but I think I want to encourage people to go check it out for themselves rather than totally spoil it all. Therefore, I'm just going to post this scene here because I love Bruce in it, even though it breaks my heart a bit.

Trigger warnings for child abuse and parental death. )

So, passion versus will. That's what the Hulk ultimately boils down to in the end, and it's what Marvel tends to default to when they try to re-introduce the character to new audiences. It's when this dichotomy is at play that I generally find the Hulk the most enjoyable to read about (YMMV, of course), and so I clearly loved this story :-).

I've been on a bit of an Iron Man and Hulk blitz of late, and I've been catching up on a lot of trades and issues via my local library and local comic shop. The "Season One" series that Marvel has been publishing lately is a set of hardcover graphic novels that provide updated origin stories for their major characters.

Yeah, I know what you're thinking. "Again?"

I admit that I was a bit hesitant about picking this up, because it was a 100 page hardcover with a pretty hefty price, and it didn't seem like it was covering anything new. Then my library got it in, and I read it and then went out and bought it straight after, because dammit, I wanted my own copy, expense be damned. This is an awesome little story, which recounts the original Hulk origin with some nifty twists and shows a Bruce Banner who's damaged but resolute and brilliant.

Trigger warning for child abuse here - this does touch on Bruce Banner's childhood and it's pretty awful. )

That's it for now, but I'll post another part later, because there are lots of cool bits!

The Herc comic was cut dreadfully short, but I really can't blame them; frankly, the thing was pretty crappy. Most of it wasn't worth the reading... but it did have a couple good points. For example:

2 pages of Hercules... Well, see for yourself. )

HULK SMASH AVENGERS is a miniseries that shows the Hulk fighting the Avengers at various point in Marvel history. The final issue has the Red Hulk fighting the post-Civil War Mighty Avengers while Tony Stark and Bruce Banner talk things over.

I should help you, why? )

Greetings True Believers!

Here are several amusing scans from Herc #3.

The Mighty Hercules has a hero-booth outside of the restaurant where he works.

Let the amusement begin.

While it may be slightly overshadowed this week by the release of a few other big-ticket comics, such as an issue of Avengers, Greg Pak, Fred Van Lente, and Ben Oliver have released a "point one" issue of their new run on Alpha Flight.

I have no strong opinions on Alpha Flight as a group, aside from when I was eight and an issue of John Byrne's run on the book scared the hell out of me (it was the one with a woman with a mouth for a face, if that means anything to you), but I flipped through this issue in the store based on Pak and Van Lente's names. I am now somewhat convinced that they A) read Scans Daily, and B) pander to it.

Five pages after the cut. )

With last week's #11 concluding both Iron Man Legacy's Industrial Revolution arc and the series as a whole, I'm left disappointed it led with War of the Iron Men.

While that arc gave us rampant Starktech misuse, deft usage of nationalistic superhumans, and Gyrich catching Pepper using a Tony LMD in the worst way possible, it still wasn't as different as Industrial Revolution or as potentially interesting as the formerly next-up Arno Stark arc or the "Tony vs magic" mentioned in initial interviews.

And yes, Iron Man/Thor and that one What If take on that last one after a fashion, but I'd still have liked to see Legacy's take if not just for van Lente's ability to exploit a story concept pretty damn well as Industrial Revolution demonstrated.

I got drawn into it because it promised a down-and-out Circuits Maximus era Tony turning his talents to building another company for the purpose of revitalizing a neighborhood, in the process going head-to-head with the gutter neighborhood's secret masters- LA's own cabal of diverse villainy, the Pride.

On the first count, I was satisfied enough.. on the second, not 'til last month's #10. )

More mighty Marvel news. As of today the Chaos War is over. There have been consequences.
This is one of them.
Marvel has the announcement.

No immortality. No power. No problem. )

IRON MAN LEGACY #5 ends the "War of the Iron Man" storyline, and explains how some of Tony's technology got in the wrong hands... again. It also involved a would-be war between Latveria (Dr. Doom's country) and Transia (where Wundagore Mountain is and where Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch grew up).

Weapons are good. I think. )

After Solve Everything and the Prime Elements arcs, Dale Eaglesham left Fantastic Four, passing Steve Epting as he moved on to some Captain America stuff. Now, Eaglesham's work on Fantastic Four was amazing. It was reminiscent of the Jack Kirby stuff in terms of figure work and the over-the-top style.

Wouldn't it be great if Eaglesham could draw a retro Fantastic Four book? It could be like Iron Man Legacy or Batman Confidential, but for Fantastic Four. I would buy loads of them.

But, Eaglesham sort of has drawn a retro Fantastic Four book, thanks to two staples of the Marvel Universe - Secret Origins ) and What If  )

CosmicBookNews has the preview.

It's all been building to this. King Kong vs. Godzilla. Hogan vs. Flair. Pepsi vs. Coke.

3 behind the cut.

It all comes down to this. )

Over in Iron Man Legacy, he's been displaying his characteristic talent for building things out of seeming nothings, be they companies out of run-down factories or innovations out of the stuff of junkyards.

And since this is Tony, he's also had to build weaponry out of that junkyard, to fend off the Serpent Society's mercenary attack in last month's #8.

(There's some of this week's #9 after that, if you're on the lookout for spoilers.. oh, and if you didn't know, this takes place while Tony's down with Circuits Maximus.)

Whose capabilities he announces, as he always does, with a great big BOOM! )
