"I'm also thrilled by the chance to write a comic book with a Native American lead character. That's a shockingly rare thing in the world. Yes, there have been a number of great Native American comic book characters over the years. But how many starred in their books?" -- Greg Pak

Hello! I am actually making a post for the first time since April 2013! (Huzzah!)

The moment many of us have been waiting for has finally happened within the pages of Batman/Superman #8. It took nearly three years for it to happen, but I suppose better late than never.

Putting aside the fact that this story is a continuation of Paul Levitz' 2.5-year-old meandering narrative (which in my opinion is the major flaw with this crossover), I actually enjoyed this issue on its own merits. I mostly loved it for the beautiful art from Jae Lee and the character moments we got between Bruce and Helena Wayne.

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.

Sadly, it was too good to last. )

I love Planet Hulk, but I’m not going to lie: the conclusion is a giant kick to the crotch.

Don’t get me wrong – it’s well-executed. It’s just sad. The only reason I don’t put it on par with the last couple of issues of Y: The Last Man in terms of sadness is because World War Hulk offered a continuation that, while it didn’t make things better, did offer a bit of catharsis as the Hulk tore the Marvel Universe a new one.

But I digress. If you’re going to have a good tragedy, you first need to have a happy place to start from. So let’s see what happens when the Hulk finally gets everything he wants.

I have read almost every single issue of The Incredible Hulk, and my absolute favorite is The Incredible Hulk #103. This story effectively caps off the happy part of Planet Hulk, and had the series ended there I would have considered it to be a wonderful ending for the character.

If you look at things in a certain way, Planet Hulk: Allegiance is the real end of the Planet Hulk saga. This issue deals with the fall of the Red King, and the next one deals with the coronation of the Hulk as the new ruler of Sakaar. The two-part Planet Hulk: Armageddon is really a prelude to the World War Hulk event.

All that aside, here’s the Hulk’s final strike against the Red King.

It’s been a while, but here’s more of Planet Hulk.

Previously in Planet Hulk

Last time around, the Hulk and his gang met with the shadow elders of Sakaar, who basically sit around being all wise and useless while the world around them goes to Hell. They have a deal with the Red King that keeps them alive but which also prevents any sort of interference in his tyrannical rule. When the Hulk arrives, they have some tests for him to find out whether or not he is the legendary Sakaarson.

The Incredible Hulk #100 is a massive issue that reprints many different Hulk issues, including one where the Hulk was on trial and Reed Richards wound up freeing him rather than letting Bruce Banner be sentenced for the crimes of the Hulk. Since I’m focusing on Greg Pak’s run on the Hulk, I’ll stick to just his stories.
