The Hulk has taken control of Australia and entered into an alliance with the Human Resistance group known as AIM. Down Under has now become the destination for downtrodden humans hoping to escape the second-class citizenship of the outside world. But AIM has bigger plans than creating a refuge for the humans of the House of M - Will Bruce Banner approve... or will his allies suddenly find themselves facing off against Banner's rampaging alter ego?

    Final Thoughts: Despite myself, I am enjoying this crossover arc. I was prepared to dislike it because of the overall premise, but Peter David made it work. My only real complaint, outside of the whole House of M premise, is the annoying cover design. I guess it is eye catching, but the red, white and blue stripe motif is also annoying. Read Full Review

    Andy Brase deserves much praise for his covers, as they are detailed affairs, and I hope he sticks around after this book emerges from the House of M, as I'd love to see what he does when he has the full cover space to play with. As for interior art, the book gets off to a cute opening visual as the Hulk deals with mind numbing bureaucracy, and he also gets a nice scene later on when Banner transforms as he plunges toward the ground far below. The one page shot where the full scope of the underground lab is revealed is good, as is the Hulk's expression as he shrugs off the barrage of gunfire from the army that has surrounded him. The only quibble that I have about the art is there are times when Jorge Lucas' inks are a little on the heavy side, and this detaches the characters from the backgrounds, with the final action sequence being the most noticeable example of this problem.
