I am quite intrigued about what's happened to Banner. there seems to be some ominous vibe when banner is referred to in issue 1. I can totally see Amadeus somehow taking that power to become the Hulk I just think it would suck to write off Banner all together. Obviously this story is about Amadeus and that's cool I just think Banner needs to have a place in the story somehow as he is pretty synonymous with the Hulk.

@battle123axe: In the latest issue Banner/Hulk is kept in containment after absorbing energy from the Kiber reactor, furthermore it appears that after he had absorbed the energy it altered his physiology in some unknown way. They've had to try 5 different containment protocols on Hulk but none of them apparently lasted long enough. What's more is that the different ways there are to drain Hulk of his gamma aren't working suggesting some sort of new hybrid power source inside Hulk.

I think this may pave the way for the all-new all different Banner/Hulk. Original Banner saved rick from radiation and became the Hulk, now he saved 50 million from a radiation blast possibly indicating the birth of a new sort of Hulk.

That said I doubt we'll see him within this year.

@atheistknowledge: Yeah, but at least when he was decapitated he began to regrow his entire head back in that very same preview page. That's pretty damn impressive.

what preview is this ? Link please!

It was a pretty cool fight though. Both characters just hate each other so damn much! This is a much better rivalry than Hulk/Abomination. Interesting to see what Banner will do now that he's got his long desired freedom.

Doc green has been a pretty cool Hulk IMO, his dialogues are pretty hilarious. He may not be ridiculously strong like WWH or Savage Hulk, but it's not always about that.

I would agree that the rivalry is more interesting and the fight while big in scale wasn't that cool IMO, Doc Green trained with IF yet he only did 2 moves a kick and a character chop to the neck, something any of us can do without any training... Well unless Banner get's saved or turns back into the Hulk he dies lol, which wont happen so he will probably get saved is my guess.

I wouldn't call his dialogue as hilarious as just a hipster spouting half-witted quips.

Well see there in lies the biggest problem. I wouldn't have mind at all if Doc Green was even the weakest Hulk incarnation and that this was established from the start. But Gerry in both the comic and his interviews keeps repeating how this is the most dangerous Hulk, how he is the most powerful Hulk, how he is the most intelligent being on the planet. And where is any of that? I hate when writers lie for obvious marketing purpose and make no mistake Duggan has made promises he hasn't delivered.

The whole thing is also obviously quite rushed because of the whole Secret Wars event, Duggan has 2 issues left and he has to tie all the lose ends and cram in Gammon, Leader, She-Hulk, Avengers, DP and Cap, Doc Greens extremis failing, Lyra and Ross(because we still haven't finished with him obviously) so it's become quite the clusterf@ck.

@thedailybagel Yea i have read it.

True, the scale of the fight was what I was referring to. Other than that I do agree, it was a very rushed issue and seeing as most of the issue is their fight, it could have been written a lot better. His training with iron fist didn't mean very much also.

In this particular issue his dialogue wasn't great, but overall since his conception I think I find it pretty funny Hulk being so articulate.

I tend not to focus on what writers say, as oppose to what they show in the comics. From reading the comics you can easily tell he isn't on the upper scale compared to his other incarnations. And it makes sense to me, Banner and Hulk aren't in sync, Banner is being blocked out against his will. That sort of psychologic dynamic certainly means he won't be as tough as Gravage or WWH who don't overpower and shut Banner out against his will. Sure Duggan may have said what he said (I don't personally know myself), because he had to hype the issue, he's not a veteran Hulk writer, so as far as he knows Doc Green may be a pretty devastating incarnation. Now the part I agree with you is that his intelligence did get significantly underplayed leading up to this fight, and it was disappointing.

@greenscar1990: @bonifidehustla: @thedailybagel:

Ross literally punched the Hulk out of him. The fight was quite back and fourth with Hulk using some kung-fu, but despite deadpool successfully landing the shot on Ross, he still won the fight. A sad day indeed :(
