Comic Book Wednesday - World War Hulk

This story is a personal favorite and got me full blown comic book nerd more again when it released. This was the first time since i could remember where i completely understood and didn't care who died because what happened to Hulk. This is top three greatest Marvel stories of all time to me. So lets begin...

After the events of Civil War and Planet Hulk, shit really hit the fan. In ways the Marvel Illuminati and even those of Earth couldn't even anticipate. The entire reason they sent Hulk into space was for a few reasons. First, he was too strong. There was no more Bruce Banner. That whole 'You makin me angry' shit is outta here. Hulk has been so enraged, he completely turned into Hulk as the dominant one. As before, Bruce Banner was the dominant one. Now its completely switched. The second reason they sent him to space was they couldn't measure how powerful he was. But best believe they found out when he was on his way back. 

One of the ILLEST quotes i've ever read in a comic came from when The Hulk landed on the Moon to face Black Bolt of the Inhumans. "I didn't come here for a whisper. I wanna hear you scream" Now keep in mind, awhile back, black bolt sonned hulk. But that was the old hulk. This hulk is hunting down everybody in the Marvel Illuminati. (which we'll touch on later.) That consists of: Professor X, Namor, Black Bolt, Mr Fantastic, Tony Stark and Dr. Strange. 

Hulk goes to Stark Tower all the way to the Mansion where the X-Men reside. I won't spoil it for you guys, but i'll say this...Hulk stops the Juggernaut. Also, he turns Madison Square Garden into a gladiator Arena for certain people to fight each other to the death. There are so many elements to this that it will make you happy you read the previous comic book wednesday posts and got up to date. You'll notice that the Civil War happened partially because Hulk wasn't there to choose a side as well. 

It really is a amazing read if you have the chance to get a hold of it. Trust me. 

Hopefully you enjoyed this.
