I honestly think it depends. That example is consistant with folks trying to drain Surfer as well, sometimes it works sometimes it does not. Sort of depends on the point they want to get accross in the story.

I was unaware of this one, but this would be consistant with in Planet Hulk, the big green guy feeding all of the one creatures with energy. I would imagine, at any rate, that it would be harder now to do than before as he seems to have more energy at base level.

Rage and focus likely play a major role as well. I think that is valid considering Hulk. I think it just depends overall on alot of factors. I am not sure if Surfer being there in the scans means to terribly much. It is true that he knows a thing or two about draining a guy like Hulk but he does not necissarily know how the machine will work. He would likely have more faith in his ability but would not want to kill Hulk.

I would agree that it might not be an auto win against Hulk anymore but it is a major equalizer. Especially if yo uget hulk off guard.


      Lord Majestros:
      Thor has shown that he can use Mjolnir to absorb massive amounts of energy. He's also specifically did so against The Presence (Russian guy with powers based on radioactive energy), so he's done so against a person as well. If Doc Samson can build a machine that could drain all of Hulk's energy (which he did), then I honestly don't see why Mjolnir couldn't do the same.

    In fact it has failed in the past. Here the Hulk was placed in a machine that was to drain the gamma radiation from him and kill him. Coincidentally the Surfer himself is present (someone with a bit of experience draining the Hulk) and he doesnt raise any objection to the premise that this is what will happen. Still the Hulk deals with the drain in a way that, perhaps like Thos draining powers themselves, not many people would give him credit for being able to do:


    So apparently Hulk willingly overloaded the machine with gamma radiation. Rulks gamma drain from Hulk 24 powered Rulk up but didnt seem to do anything to diminish Hulks power. Is there anything that distinguishes these events from others where it has worked? Perhaps its that these involved more intelligent personas rather than the Savage Hulk who Rulk and Surfer succesfully drained. Maybe its because Hulk was angry and/or "ready for it". Maybe its just the writers opinions - theres been several instances where its been said that draining the radiation would no longer work to cure the Hulk. But i think it indicates that Hulk is more of a "gamma generator" than a "gamma battery" and if he gets worked up than he can just crank out more energy, a la Worldbreaker Hulk, even if he seems spent.

Look Raist bunnies...
