On the one side, you've got the Red Hulk, Thunderbolt Ross: formerly a four-star general in the Air Force hunting the Hulk, currently a dead man turned Rulk being hunted.

On the other, the technomorphic transhuman Zero/One, Dr. Parul Kurinji: once working for the shady super-scientific Omnisapient Systems, now for the future's betterment.

They're a natural protagonist/antagonist pair, opposites that they are; one's raw power and just-in-time tactics, the other's refactored intelligence and long-term strategies. Until this month's Hulk #40, they hadn't yet had a direct confrontation, Zero/One only sending her attack augment Black Fog time and again in bids to eliminate him.

But then, last month, the crimson crusher's latest bête noire Omegex the world-ender BRAMMM'd him right into Bar Harbor, Maine. )

In terms of the Red Hulk, you've no doubt already figured out the answer.

Parker's Hulk run certainly has, its Scorched Earth arc having Rulk take it on the chin from Iron Man, Thor, and Namor. It's also realized that if you want to make a character viable beyond the events of his creation (despite Incredible's upcoming conclusion, Hulk promises to be predominantly "all red" for a while yet.. Rulk and Red She-Hulk? Definitely a familial connection..), you've got to draw him away from it.

To that end, it's been cranking out all-new antagonists since March, four deathly deadly terrors with their own reasons to see Rulk dead: the living weapon Omegex, the vengeful soldier Fortean, the creative mastermind Zero/One, and the haunting Hyderabadian spectre known as the Black Fog.

It's wrapped up those acts of creation with this month's #33, to take Rulk off to space; if future solicits are any indication, it won't be coming back to them for a few months at the least. Still, Parker's done a nice job dropping a few new toys into the box, and I'm eagerly anticipating his picking them up again.

(A note: These're pages from Hulk #30.1-33, none of which exceed the 7/21 split; only 4 from this week's #33 are below, for those who need to know that sort of thing.)

Partly because he's also been fairly deft at their construction.. )

So now everything but the Thunderbolts tie-in's over for Hulk's Scorched Earth, leaving us with the fallout of the Intelligentsia's machinations; Doom's brain damage, a spider legged MODOK, and the Red Hulk.

The last of whom's been establishing his presence in the larger MU, riding along with the Avengers and unwillingly killing Araña's dad. He even seems to be getting Hulk to himself for the next few, while Bruce rages against the gods in Incredible Hulks.. now's the perfect time to give him his own enemies, foes outside himself.

People who he can punch in the face such that we're rooting for him, at least. )

Since we had a look at Incredible Hulks #112 earlier, why not Hulk #25 with the new creative team of Jeff Parker and Gabriel Hardman via CosmicBookNews!

Can they pull Rulk off?

Hate it or love it, Loeb and McGuinness' Rulk was entertaining!

This is 2 pages from Agents of Atlas: Dark Reign #7. In the previous issue, Namora and Namor decide to get married.

But before going through with it*, Namora feels she needs to settle something with Jimmy. I like his response because it shows he understands something important. )

* ETA: for various plot-related reasons, they don't actually get married...and seem rather unlikely to do so very soon in the future too, IMHO.
