    This is an incredible direction to take this hero. For one, it kind of returns him to the semi-villain state that he was born to. While he is still in the mad scientist role, I can't help but notice taking away everyone else's Gamma strength is just a smarter way to say "Hulk is the strongest." I have no idea what the nanite's are for, but I love the throw back to the Mr. Fixit era of Hulk, with Hulk keeping Banner locked inside. If things keep up in this vein, I foresee a long fun for this series of the Hulk. Read Full Review

    I'm sorry to see Mark Waid step down as writer, but so far, Gerry Dugan is carrying the torch with no signs of faltering. Read Full Review

    What we get out of this issue is a story that is very straightforward and a breeze to follow, but the Hulk's portrayal is really what makes this issue interesting and it's what should keep some readers hooked for a bit more at least. Read Full Review

    This new creative team has genuinely piqued my interest in a title in which I would normally have no interest. Gerry Duggan has been a tremendous fit on every title that he has touched and this is no exception. Duggan and Bagley have hit the ground running on Hulk with this debut that was part science, sci-fi, madness and all awesome! Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Aug 15, 2014

    Hulk takes an intriguing new direction, and though people who missed Original Sin #3.1-3.4 may find it a bit strange, the premise is enticing. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    While the Hulks return to his own series does have a few bumps in terms of its pacing and content, it's still a good jumping on point for anyone interested in following The Hulk into his new status quo. The story does leave a lot of mystery and intrigue for new readers, and veteran Hulk fans will enjoy the Mr. Fixit-like change to the Hulk's character. I'm sure we will get back to the "HULK SMASH" version sooner or later, but for now this is an interesting curve ball in the Hulk's history. Read Full Review

    "Hulk" #5 launches a new approach for the Hulk, which comes with a great deal of potential for fun and adventure. By the very nature of Doctor Green's new mission, however, Duggan is treading a fine line between innovative and engaging stories and formulaic, patterned tales. The writer shows no trepidation in trying something different with the Hulk, and for now, Doctor Green has my attention. Read Full Review

    Mark Bagley plays to all his strengths, never really venturing outside the pocket to experiment with new methods of expression or storytelling. But for a script that leans a little heavy on exposition to set the stage, that works here. Read Full Review
