Comic Book Wednesday: Planet Hulk

Imagine if you were so gawdamn powerful that a few called the Marvel Illuminati made a decision to send you to space. To a planet that was meant to be peaceful and calm you down, but instead you enter a worm hole. The planet you land on is under rule from a Dictator like King. They decide to make you a Gladiator. 
Welcome to Planet Hulk. 

In my opinion this is a very important story arc to explain the future events of World War Hulk. Now something you have to keep in mind about Hulk now. There is no longer a Bruce Banner. The Hulk is in a constant state of rage. So much to the point that Professor X went into his mind and damn near had a nervous break down due to how much rage and anger was inside of him. Also, he has regenerative powers. A bit quicker than Wolverine which is pretty crazy. And the most important thing. His strength has no end. For example: If drop nukes on him, he survives and now can withstand and dish out Nuke levels of strength. 

You have the hulk become a Slave, Gladiator, Revolutionary, savior of a race and a King all in one story. It gets you attached to the character of the Hulk for the first time. In the past, Hulk wasn't written the best. Finally he gets something and they hit a home run with it. I would highly suggest getting a hold of this story. Peep my twitter timeline for a link and you should be able to jump right in. 

Next Comic Book Wednesday: The Civil War.
