Greg Pak says at least a couple times in interview, that Cho has "a Dark Hulk". AFAIK the first time "Dark Hulk" ref was in TIH 370/371 when an inter-dimensional being takes over the gray Hulk. Would think Pak knows this history, so maybe doesnt mean anything other than same name. Or maybe it could be a clue to something more.
Dark Hulk being a fully separate personality type than Cho-Hulk is a welcomed change to me. If this duality is shown more than the tool-ish Cho-Hulk, I'll be thrilled. My thinking is this'll prolly be Pak's last chance to see if there's an audience (for him and Cho) with the return to Planet Hulk story and becoming The Incredible Hulk title and numbering. Dep on sales, Banner/Hulk comes back with a milestone number; 725, 750 775 etc and prolly high profile new creative team. Pak would have been given ample chances to turn the series around. And if this potential failure ALSO doesnt result in 12+ yr editor Mark Paniccia's departure too, then we and Hulk are f***ed!!
They are swinging for the fences with Return to Planet Hulk and an appearance by Thor. I think we have to wait until the numbers dwindle after the event, then we will get The Incredible Hulk Back.
Paniccia. What has he accomplished during his tenure? One great event, the original Planet Hulk and that's it. WWH was wasted potential and that's it for his tenure.
