The puny human "heroes" of Earth, including Reed Richards, Iron Man, Dr. Strange and Black Bolt, called the Hulk a monster and shot him into space. Now the Hulk has returned with a rage that knows no bounds...and he has a posse! Can the mightiest powerhouses of the Avengers stop the Hulk and his cadre of super-powered Warbound gladiators as they carve their path of mayhem through the concrete canyons of Manhattan? Can battling Ben Grimm and the rest of the Fantastic Four save Reed Richards from the Hulk's wrath? And what hope can She-Hulk have of calming her great green cousin's terrible rage?

    The art? Cmon people, its John Romita Jr. at the top of his game. A feast for the eyes all around, and my favorite is perhaps the Thunderbolt Ross reveal on the last page. Dont believe me? Check it out and see. Read Full Review

    A question that is bound to come up, again and again, is why are the heroes standing beside those that cast Bruce into space? While there is more than one answer to this, perhaps one for every hero, the answer for The Thing is obviously, If youre only their friend in the good times, then youre not their friend. Needless to say, the second issue of World War Hulk is extremely well done and a great read. Read Full Review

    Considering my complete disinterest in the book in the lead-up to its publication, World War Hulk is turning out to be a surprisingly satisfying and enjoyable series. Part of its success is undoubtedly the fact that it hasnt been over-hyped or marketed with a false premise: as readers, were getting exactly what we were promised, and were not being made to wait until the end of the series for the core concept to pay off. If anything, Im concerned that the book wont be able to maintain this level of excitement for all five issues without becoming repetitive or one-note, as a lot of ground has already been covered in these first two issues - but the final page of this issue promises something a little different for the next, and suggests that the battle isnt over by a long shot. This might not be the most thought-provoking or intelligent title on the stands, but its one of the most all-out entertaining superhero books that Ive read in quite a while, and makes for a perfect summ Read Full Review

    If you are a Hulk fan then you will love World War Hulk as Marvel jobs out every hero to your boy. Other than Hulk fans, I would imagine that most action fans will also enjoy this mini-series. The writing isn't anything special and if you enjoy nuanced characters, well crafted dialogue and complex and compelling plotlines then World War Hulk might not be for you. Read Full Review
