    Agreed, never said otherwise. The point was simply that he wasn't out cold as everyone thought at the end of #621; in actual fact he took it very similarly to how Thor took it.... except Hulk took a bigger bolt of lightning. \:P

It depends on the length of time really which is unclear. I think the Hulk was pretty rocked. Maybe even temporarily knocked out due to his reaction.

If you don't try and argue that bigger = more powerful, then I'm fine with it. I'm sure you understand why that would be fallacious. I highly doubt that the attacks thrown around in his fight with Thor:

Was less more powerful than the one against Hulk. Zeus' blood lusted -he was stated to be in a Warrior Madness- state would mean he was throwing around more power in my opinion.

Thor was also weakened in that fight durability wise. That's why he was reacting to so badly.

I think the closest scene to the Hulk scene would be this one:

Zeus wasn't trying to kill Thor but he wanted Thor down or gone. Still took it better than the Hulk however. \:\)

    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?

I think some lightning touched him but that was clearly just a light show.

    That's how I was assuming it would go too, but Pak making it a straight fist-fight intrigues me. I dunno if Pak will write Hulk as an outright underdog in a straight battle of fists, but we shall see.

    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.


The main problem for me is that I don't know how powerful Pak believes Skyfathers are in hand to hand. Will Zeus be amping his stats? Will he be at his base? Can he even amp under Pak? Important questions. Either way, we'll see.

Still, I think I Pak has peaked. Even something as comicish as outfitting the Hulk with powerful tools (Ala Thor vs. amped Thanosi) etc. would have proven more interesting.
