I know that PAD refused to write the issue, but I never read most of the beginning of his run. I DO remember Betty and Bruce having a discussion about her being pregnant during the classic Ground Zero storyline (One of my all-time favorites. I think that was my first introduction to the Leader, as well.), but does anyone know what the plans were? I have never read the issue where she had a miscarriage. How was it handled? From what I read about the circumstances, Nightmare was involved. If that is the case, shouldn't The Hulk be hell-bent to take him down for good?

Come to think of it, Nightmare seems to be a pretty big Hulk villain, between this and the Crossroads.

Thanks.

The issue was handled by a guest writer (the editor at the time I believe, may Be Tom Defalco, idk). And yes, Nightmare was involved. Not a great issue. I dont know that PAD ever revealed what his ultimate plans were. I always wished Marvel would give him a run like Claremont with X-Men, where it picks up where he left off.

The story goes that while PAD wanted Betty to give birth (leading to events similar to "What Savage Beast"), Marvel editorial nixed the pregnancy, leading to a showdown. He nearly walked away, but then again he would have been sacrificing the other stories he'd been leading up to (i.e. the merger). So rather than quit, he let editorial have its way but refused to write the actual story where Betty suffered the miscarriage (#360). Ironically it was written by Bob Harras, the editor who'd originally hired PAD to write the Hulk.

Was another time be around the "Heroes Reborn" era?
I've heard rumblings about that, but always dismissed them as that...rumors.

From what I understand that was a little different. Marvel was poised to cancel Hulk at the conclusion of Onslaught, but Peter David lobbied to keep the book. There weren't originally supposed to be two Hulks, just the one going to the HR planet. (Obviously this was all fixed in plenty of time before Onslaught: MU was written/drawn, as that's where the split happened.) I also suspect--although I've never been able to confirm--that PAD was offered the HR: The Return miniseries as recompense for having nearly had to let go of the main Hulk book.
