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!
