Amazing Psycamorean - Jun 8, 2022

Titan was explained. Titan was revealed at the end of the first arc of Hulk as the Betty in Bruce's head. Bruce always knew about Titan. Titan caused El Paso to happen. TItan is the impetus for the entire run. Titan is why Bruce made Hulk into a spaceship and tried to leave forever. This was explained in this very crossover.

maljoss - Jun 8, 2022

Thanks. I went back and re-read before responding, just to make sure. "Evil Betty" never refers to itself as "Titan", that's a description used by someone reporting to Ross. Banner had no way of hearing that, so he produced that name out of thin air in this issue. It's also not clear that "Titan" is controlling the people in the bar in El Passo - just Bruce - so that tidbit comes out of nowhere too. I get the premise for the series, I just don't like it, or think it's been written well.
