COMICS: Check Out The New Super-Smart AVENGERS NOW! HULK

Although Hulk won't be getting relaunched with a new issue #1 along with the likes of Thor and Iron Man, Bruce Banner is in for some very big changes when Marvel's "Avengers NOW!" initiative kicks in. We also have some new female Thor and Superior Iron Man artwork.

When Tony Stark uses Extremis tech to save Bruce Banner after he's shot in the head, the result is a super-intelligent Green Goliath..and by the sounds of things it's not just going to be Stark that'll be at odds with his fellow heroes when the Avengers NOW! initiative gets underway. In next month's Hulk #5 by Gerry Duggan and artist Mark Bagley, the Hulk plans to rid the world of the poison of gamma energy, including gamma-enhanced beings such as himself -- but where does that leave the likes of Red Hulk and Banner's own cousin She-Hulk? "Some of these people are addicted to the power. They've been enhanced long enough that they're used to it and don't want to give it up," Marvel editor Mark Paniccia says. "Hulk fans love seeing big smash-ups and superhuman fights, so we're going to have some pretty epic battles."

Only the shit Marvel has pulled the last week can make "smart Hulk" sound not weird.

Bagley's artwork has never done much for me

Hulk just looks like a Green Lex Luthor in some of those pictures.

@ spandex

You talk as if they've done Something new, far out, and extreme. Every thing they are doing now as been done before.

Buddha29 - 7/23/2014, 6:05 AM
Anyone else think Hulk looks pretty much like Savage Dragon here?

@Mancalledsting "What if?" issue 10.
darklighter1 - 7/23/2014, 6:12 AM
ManCalledSting, it was from a "What if" title from back in '78 or so about Jane Foster picking up the walking stick instead of Donald Blake.

Smart Hulk again? Cool!!!
TonyChu - 7/23/2014, 7:09 AM
They did this in the 90s if I am not mistaken. He used to wear a brown outfit as well.

Professor Fixit.

Not the first time Marvel has done this... I used to have the Smart Hulk action figure :)

ManCalledSting - 7/23/2014, 8:01 AM
ALmazing: the first comic I ever got, was an issue where smart Hulk gets mad, bcuz his bunny slippers get ruined in a fight. The cover was him screaming, whilst shooting a big machine gun.

All this has happened before and it will happen again...

Keep rehashing those old ideas marvel ! Instead of doing something original !
