Indestructible Hulk #2

by JohnP on December 22, 2012


How does Mark Waid do it? Just two issues in, Indestructible Hulk is shaping up to be an entertaining, ultra-fun highlight of Marvel Now, which may also redefine how we view the Banner/Hulk dynamic. And he makes it look so effortless.

As promised, this month we get Hulk vs. Iron Man, but we also get Banner vs. Stark. Bruce hasn't been in his new S.H.I.E.L.D. sponsored lab for long, yet he has already managed to create a way to prevent cancers and safely extract natural gas. Tony Stark is impressed and that was Banner's intention - to have his genius command the respect of even the world's greatest minds. Stark also plays right into the other half of Banner's plans when he insists on ti.kering with Bruce's invention. He brings out the Hulk, allowing Banner to blow off steam and giving us a taste of Hulk action.

Leinil Yu again shines when drawing action scenes. He also manages to show up Greg Land (current Iron Man artist) by drawing a superior Tony Stark and brilliantly capturing the machinations of his Iron Man suit. In issue #1, it seemed like Yu was trying too hard in the less busy dialogue scenes, but here he looks to already be settling into a good groove with the style of the book.

This team is settling in for fun-filled, character defining run from the looks of things so far. Indestructible Hulk is something you need to add to your pull list if you haven't yet.
