    Guess we'll have to agree to disagree on that front. Looks to me like Hulk is clearly being hit by something in the first panel. If it was just a lightshow, why is Hephaestus jumping out of the way of it?

The Hulk looks like he is resisting at best strong winds or waves of force. The lightning does not look like it is striking the hulk, but since Zeus is trying to intimidate him I could see wins. That is a common theme that beings like Zeus do whenever they try and intimidate someone in any work of fiction. Put on a light show with strong winds to try and blow someone away. If lightning were striking the Hulk I don't think he would be grinning.

Why is Hepahestus jumping out of the way? One, he knows Zeus is about to cut lose. Two, Zeus is not the type to really care about who gets hurt in his brawls. Three, Zeus may specifically not be having at the Hulk, but there is nothing to prevent a stray bolt from hurt Heph.

    We already know that one way or another Hulk is going to take a bad beating from this issue. I think the main talking point is going to be how Hulk's dynamic strength stacks up against a Skyfather's; I know it's a topic that's been discussed at length in the last few years on this board, so it will be fun seeing it happen in print.

You tend to be one of the more reasonable Hulk do you think it should go down? If we accept the premise that Zeus can increase his strength through will alone I would think that would give him a definite advantage over the Hulk. Even if we accept the premise of the Hulk truly having infinite strength, the Hulk's strength is tied to rage and motivation. That is often given as the reason why his strength fails at time, requires periods to climb, and why the WWH levels are so rare. Zeus can just augment his strength to those levels and beyond at a moment's notice just by thinking it. I would think this would give him a considerable advantage.
