Strap in, hold on and Hulk out – it’s time to meet your Totally Awesome Hulk, the one and only Amadeus Cho! That’s right true believer, it’s a all-new Jade Giant for an all-different Marvel Universe and he’s coming to you this December in TOTALLY AWESOME HULK #1! Legendary and storied Hulk scribe Greg Pak (Planet Hulk) returns to the fan-favorite character he created as he powers up to become the newest green goliath! And he’s bringing blockbuster artist Frank Cho (Mighty Avengers, Savage Wolverine) along for the ride!

The mystery behind the new Hulk’s identity has been revealed! But what has happened to the original Hulk, Bruce Banner in the previous eight months? All will be revealed – and the answers will surprise you! But one thing is for certain – Amadeus Cho is a completely different kind of Hulk. Not tormented, not conflicted. Just a giant green wrecking machine who loves being the Hulk! What could possibly go wrong?

“Come December, the one true Hulk will be a 19-year-old Korean-America “Boy Genius” who is going to carry the burden of being the Hulk like it weighs a feather,” says Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso. “He's going to love every minute of it. In this new series, we are going to lean hard into the fantasy aspects of being the Hulk. It can’t be all bad, can it?”

Big heart, big action and high stakes await as Amadeus Cho embarks on his first gamma-fueled adventure! Believe us, you’ve never seen a Hulk like this before – and it’s TOTALLY AWESOME. Be there as the Hulk’s exciting journey begins this December in the bombastic debut of TOTALLY AWESOME HULK #1!

I like that they're finally using Cho more, but I kinda wish it wasn't under the guise of Hulk.

Loki is (maybe) the bad guy of A-Force. The new Hulk is exactly who most people thought he was. Next I imagine Marvel will ask if the sun will rise.

First off told you, secondly meh...

Only a few white guys left Marvel that are in dire need of color washing. Get to it and soon we can pretend characters like Banner and Thor Odinson never even existed.

Yes I was right!

So was 95% of the internet.

"During an interview, editor Axel Alonso revealed that they wanted to change things up, since fans have been reading Bruce Banner stories for the longest time....."

Why is this logic ok?

As many people speculated, early on, totally awesome Hulk is actually Amadeus Cho.

Truer words have never been written. That said, and while Substitue Hulk is a sub, I like the idea of an Amadeus-Hulk.

I also like the idea of an Asian Hulk. This won't be the first Asian-Hulk though. There was one on the Static Shock episode "Tantrum," lol.

Yeah, it's a weak pretext to set up a stunt. But hey, stunts sell! I'm just surprised the Marvel editors are not going on talk shows talking about how historic an Asian-Hulk is.

One thing: Remember the censored arm? Seems to be some sort of bracelet with a device that has Cho transformed into The Hulk whenever he wants to, without him being angry or something.

I'll try this one out, I actually like these status quo changes for the heroes, I never read Cap or Thor before but the new Cap & Thor I really like now, and I've always liked X-23 so her being Wolverine is something I'm definetely getting too.

@kevinwalsh: Yes, because good writers and good artists are infallible.

No, I never said that. If the story or art is there, who cares if the characters are this race or that gender...........just enjoy a good comic. I'm not saying this is going to be the best thing out, but who cares who's the Hulk or Thor or Batman if there is a compelling story. Let that be the thing that drives whether you read something or not, not holding on to some petty notion that every character has to be locked into a mantel of one thing. Bruce is in this comic, he might be doing cool things as just Bruce. Thor Odinson is still in Thor rocking a badass metal arm and a giant ax. Good stories are what I like in a comic.

I feel like the house of idea's is running out of ideas...its the same story kind of pass the mantle to a minority story with a different hero.... plus as good as the new secret wars is its just feels like a doomcentric age of apocalypse of house of m type thing ...like a reality shift where the world is transformed in a villain's image ...c'mon marvel do something new please

No normal person does when it's a newly made character. But when you take someone like Superman for instance and suddenly make him black for no reason other then we need more colored people but we don't wanna make new characters so we are just gonna change the per-existing ones. Would it be any different if they changed Black Panther and made him white or Asian? Everyone would lose their minds and start pulling the racist card and rightfully so but change a white person into anyone else and that's viewed as a good thing apparently.

I care, because there is no Hulk without Banner and there is no Banner without Hulk. Hulk is a conscious born out of Banners trauma and is directly influenced by his mood and personality. Hulk has even existed inside Banner before Banner ever got hit by the gamma bomb that transformed him. It's not a freaking mantle, it's his IDENTITY. Banner being Hulk is completely different to something like Steve Rogers being Captain America, that is a mantle, being Hulks is not. Good stories should not be a substitute for character assassination, you can still have amazing stories with the characters you made in the first place.

For the Hulk to be such a powerful being, it sure is easy to create one.

I am a huge Hulk fan. Just cause you are Gamma Green doesn't make you THE Hulk. There are other green hulk-like MFers.

Do not want.
