Is the Panchen Lama supposed to look like Amadeus Cho?

Why are there, like, twenty supermodel hot ladies just hanging out in this Tibetan monastery high in the mountains? Does this Buddhist sect have an in with the modeling and adult film industries and a chartered heli pilot or something?

some women like brains, some women like looks, maybe some women dig spiritual enlightenment. who are we to judge?

besides, to US they look like supermodels / porn stars, but maybe they grew up as ugly ducklings (so to speak) and have self esteem issues, or think that the only way they can get anyone, men included, to find them interesting is to be pretty.

or maybe they fled to the mountain tops of Tibet because it was the one place they could go where they wouldn't be judge by their looks. Take ultimate Betty Ross, you think she likes the fact that people judge her by her looks rather than her brains, or skill? The fact that she uses her appearance as a weapon suggests no.

In the story it's implied that the monks are abducting and/or coercing these women into coming to the monastery.

The pages are missing here, but while tracking the Hulk, Wolverine points out the villages he's been passing have no women in a certain age range, and the villages are evasive on the reasons why.

That seems like a really long way to go for a Incredible Hulk TV show joke.

So for proper effect, now you can't post the rest of this series for 3 years or so.

A few stories toss around the idea that the Hulk was always "there" in Bruce Banner's mind. It just took the gamma ray exposure to release him.

Roger Stern MAY have been the first one to do this in INCREDIBLE HULK #227.

I like the fact that some stories validate the Hulk as a different, autonomous being sharing the same body, while in others it's just Bruce all the time, in denial about his own baser impulses, otherizing them. The Hulk for me works best with the tension of uncertainty, constantly oscillating between the two hypotheses.

My understanding is that the psychiatric community itself is quite divided over whether multiple personality disorder actually exists, or if it's a misinterpretation of other mental illnesses by psychiatrists whose methods encourage the development of its symptoms.

Worth noting that at times the Hulk has demonstrated full access to Banner's education and intellect, and when he was physically separated from Banner into two independent entities he was mindless and merely acting with instinctual aggression to things that drew his notice.

That happened once when they were separated, but they've been separated several times with different results - including one where the Hulk gained the ability to track Banner anywhere and made killing the puny human his top priority and another time when Banner became a supervillain and the Hulk became the good guy.

As much as I hate this comic, it does highlight the reason I hate the "Hulk is a killer" angle.

Basically, Banner's a villain here. If he cared at all about human life, he'd let SHIELD take him into custody rather than play The Fugitive - and he certainly wouldn't let simple jokes about his eating habits turn him into a literal monster.

The key thing that made Bill Bixby's Banner work in the series was that he was an innocent guy on the run. His Hulk didn't kill anybody. Similarly, the Banner on the run motif from the comics worked as long as the Hulk wasn't actually the horrible monster that humans claimed he was. Once you have a Hulk who kills people over something as petty as a suggestion about sexual prowess, it's pretty much impossible to have sympathy for Banner if he doesn't immediately turn himself in.

And it's clearly established here that the Ultimate version of the Hulk has killed literally hundreds of people. Despite any good intentions Banner may or may not have, he is essentially a mass-murdering weapon of mass destruction. That he occasionally has uses when targeted at the right thing doesn't absolve him of responsibility.

Also: actual therapists (or at the very least GOOD ONES) don't dictate to you what your issues are. They may believe you have them, but simply saying 'Oh, trust me, you've got a problem' isn't how therapy or psychoanalysis works.
