Subj: Um, that's not exactly what happened either.

A-Bomb stopped Thor and they paused and had a conversation. Then Hulk came out and allowed Rulk to wail on him. So there was a clear recovery period. Defensor, IMO, you are severely overrating RULK. I told you Thor would kick his ass after he got his measure, and that's exactly what happened. We have been banning him from tournaments for no reason at all.

> Green Hulk beat Red Hulk WITH Thor's help...it was not a solo one-on-one fight...took them both contributing to wear down the Red Hulk. Giving sole credit to Green Hulk just because he was the last one dishing out punishment to Red Hulk, notwithstanding A-bom convincing Thor to stay out of the fight, needs to be recognized.

> > Sorry... can't do that. What has been shown is simple and obvious, and can not be ignored; Green Hulk defeated the monster that trashed Thor, Abomination, a Watcher, a Wendigo, etc, etc... It took a bit for Greenie to get mad enough, but he did it. Say nothing of the fact that Rulk did all these feats using power stolen from the Hulk- and Hulk still worked up enough power to overcome him. For three years Marvel has been clearing up the Hulk strength issue for us readers, starting in Planet Hulk, through WWH and now in the Rulk story arc. The most overwhelming power in the Marvel U. belongs to Hulk... (regardless if he can fly or not). Of course everyone who pointed this out over the years were called over the top fanboys. Hah! Just because Marvel has proven us right, and doesn't back your personal worldview doesn't mean you can disregard the stories. This wasn't a what if, It was in continuity... sure, the writing style was poor and the dialogue was weak- I would have loved to see this story done by someone with a deeper level of talent, but the feats remain. I also like that Thor has decided Hulk to be a worthy ally- even after threatening the world. Considering how he treated his one time friend Iron Man over his behavior that's quite an assessment.
