I haven’t read mainstream comics in a number of years now, and I’ve never really been a fan of the Hulk books. But while I was being super productive today (/sarcasm), I learned through a Google search that Uatu–my boy, the Watcher–apparently got knocked out cold by the Red Hulk. This is not nearly the stupidest thing that has ever happened in comic books, but it did make me curious enough to find out a little bit more about the Red Hulk.
So according to a guy in this thread, the Red Hulk dominated an Odin-force Thor, chopped off Terrax‘s head, choked out the Silver Surfer (which as this poster pointed out, doesn’t even make sense, since the Surfer doesn’t need to breath–I mean, he lives in freakin’ outer space) and absorbed the power cosmic, and he beat the Grandmaster. Maybe he did some more stuff, too, but that’s what was mentioned in the thread.
These may have been awesome stories–I don’t know–but somehow it’s no surprise to me that they’re written by Jeph Loeb, who in my opinion, just sucks. I don’t think I’ve ever read anything good written by Jeph Loeb. I mean, I don’t even like reading his first name. I’d be happy to be proved wrong, though.
Here’s the lamest thing, though. And I guess these are spoilers, but I think this was probably revealed years ago. The Red Hulk is in actuality Thunderbolt Ross. Really? That was the best twist with which they could come up? I know irony is a lost art, but that seems pretty lame.
