    Can RICK JONES survive "DOC GREEN'S" Gamma cure?

    To be honest, I hadn't given much thought to the notion of Hulk's cure accidentally killing off its intended users.

    It would certainly put a damper on Doc Green's efforts if he killed his old side kick by mistake...

    Sweet. If Rick dies, I can see Doc pretending it never happened.

    I am really liking this new direction, even Bagley's pencils feel more alive and put to better use with Duggan than Waid.

    Extremis made him extremely, fightingly intelligent. SO much so that he doesn't sleep, and operates by using pure logic. At least...that's the impression I got from reading the first issue.

    I'm very interested in the direction this book is going. After being terribly underwhelmed by most of Waid's run (with the exception of the OS tie-in, which was surprisingly good), Duggan looks to be getting things chugging. I'm definitely interested in learning more about the Doc Green persona.

    From a big picture standpoint, it could be argued that editorial wants a bunch of the other Hulks depowered to try and bring the characters closer to the status quo, which I'm not crazy about. I don't mind if Rick/Abomb gets depowered because not much was done with him in that state, but I want both Betty and General Ross to maintain their red Hulk-ness. Giving those two powers was the best thing to happen to either character in years, and it'd be a shame if they were taken away. And we know Jen won't get depowered because she has a shiny new solo title.

    It'd be interesting if, instead of depowering all the other Hulks, they made a Hulks team-up book. Kinda like Pak's Incredible Hulks, but more team/mission oriented. It could also be called a not-crappy version of Agents of S.M.A.S.H.

    i can't see them permanently depowering or killing off the hulks when they just renewed agents of SMASH (ordinarily i wouldn't assume they'd synergise that much, but with ultimate spidey doing their own version of spider-verse while spider-verse is on, plus a guardians cartoon; i'd say the the dread eye of mickey is at least pointed in that direction)

    lyra and betty though, do not have that protection

    any chance whatever happens to the hulks might factor into skullslaught unleashing Kluh?

    This version of the Hulk is certainly fast, snatching that missile out of the air with ease.

    Would be interesting if Doc Green made the rest of the Hulks his own personal agents to do solo missions and occasionally team-up with them in order to stop foes/threats that no other hero or heroes can possibly handle. You've got to admit, that would make an interesting secondary ongoing title.

    Well, counting the main Hulk title & the Savage Hulk ongoing, that'd be 3 Hulk titles. I'd enjoy that. I mean, look at how many damn Avengers, Spider-Man, and X-Men titles there are!

    I would be disappointed if they de-powered them as well. Their books were excellent and I loved what Jeff Parker did. I'm tired of Marvel having hero's fighting other hero's. They should create new villains or bring back old favorites.

    I doubt any of the de-powering will be "permanent", since I think "Doc Green" is the type to make contingencies for any obstacle that will affect his agenda. Either that, or someone in Doc Green's inner circle of rogue scientists might have put in a "back door" program into the nanites to allow for a re-powering just in case. After all, one of the scientists was surprised that Doc Green did not develop a cure for HIM.

    You'd think that Marvel would not want their Hulks de-powered in order to have synergy with the cartoon. A-Bomb has been just as important as Hulk in that show and so I thought they would want to have A-Bomb come back into comics and stay like that.

    Also it would be a shame if they de-powered either of the Reds because yes it is the best thing to happen to the characters in years and without those powers, they would probably fade into total obscurity. Being hulkified is the only thing causing Betty to even cameo in a comic these days.

    I can't see them de-powering Jen. I'd be surprised if they did.

    I know there are a bunch of Hulk characters these days but I think it's fine to have a few of them. I'm rooting against Doc Green's success in story here, but it does look like an interesting story to read nonetheless.
    Current Monthly Pulls (though I buy a ton of trades and stuff as well all the time):

    I like to see how this is going to end. Hulk may go just balls out feral after this. Lenny Status.
