"Let the Hulk Win"

"Let the Hulk Win" - my comic book review of New Avengers: Illuminati #4, written by Brian Michael Bendis and Brian Reed and illustrated by Jim Cheung, is now online at Avengers Forever.

"Let the Hulk win.

"That’s right. You heard me. Let the Hulk win. That’s what I have to say about New Avengers: Illuminati #4, a book that dropped right in the middle of the World War Hulk crossover. Put simply, the Hulk has returned from exile in space on the rampage seeking revenge on the Illuminati. I say, let the Hulk win. They deserve what they get. It was a very uneven issue, but one that helped me at least decide what the fate of the Illuminati should be.

"Let’s start with the cover, a cover full of promise. The concept of Marvel’s Illuminati, heck, any Illuminati, is that it’s a secret. And anyone who’s been married or in any long term relationship knows exactly how hard, emotionally, mentally and even physically it is to keep a secret from your partner. So a cover depicting the significant others of the Illuminati has much promise."
