    To me Banner is infinitely more interesting than the Hulk. This showing is fantastic and really brings to the forefront what a lot of people forget, Banner is a genius.

Banner has definitely been under used and underdeveloped over the years. The Incredible Hulk is certainly the name of the book, but to me, Bruce Banner IS the Hulk. Stan Lee and Mantlo and PAD were the only Hulk writers before Pak, that have attempted to flesh Banner out. Most writers have forgotten under Stan Lee's writing Banner was immensely creative. In issue #140 or #141 of TIH, Doctor Doom stated that Banner, in certain areas, was more intelligent than he. It was good to see one of them.

I haven't read this issue, but it looks good. The Leader's responce "Of course he knows, M.O.D.O.K. he's Banner." is mint.
Bruce seems to be a calculator that has it all planned out.

He's... A Misunderstood MONSTER! An INCREDIBLE force! He's ASTONISHING! That's why you don't comprehend him! And because of his...RAMPAGING, the Hater will not tolerate him SAVAGE, INDESTRUCTIBLE, nor his being IMMORTAL!!!
Watch out for that Gamma-Burst ...The WORLD BREAKER!!! "Only the Hulk could have attempted it! Only the Hulk would have been capable of it! Only the Hulk could have done it!"- Tales To Astonish #063 "There is no way to measure his strength! There is nothing he cannot do!"- Tales To Astonish #073 "That something -- anything -- could grab hold of an energy field should be IMPOSSIBLE! But the Hulk grabs hold just the same!"- The Incredible Hulk #242 Gamma Ra the Assassin aka Lord Smash'emall - Faithful Member of The Church of Hulk
