The Maestro had a harem too though.

Sure, but the Maestro was the sole power in a post-apocalyptic society. Being a Maestro concubine was a source of financial security, and many of the Maestro's citizens worshiped him as their protector. Power is an aphrodisiac, but because at its root it's a sign of the ability to provide. So you've got a combo of brainwashing and enthusiastic fakery that doesn't just happen because some really strong green guy comes to town. Not that a few Tibetans wouldn't want to be his girlfriend for the same reason ("You seem strong, you'll protect me, right?"), but something on this scale just seems ridiculous.

I mean, that harem was still a harem and still a feast for the male gaze, but there was some sociological justification for the whole thing. Maybe there's a similar one in the remaining issues of this series, but I'm not counting on it.

Also, these women seem to be about 90% clones of each other.

Also, I'm guessing they're at the top of a mountain in Tibet, because they're the only part of Tibet that ever exists in fiction. Geez, they must be FREEZING.

Fair point and Ultimate Hulk/Banner was never as charismatic as main universe Bruce/Hulk or the Maestro.
