Quote:It's very simple.
Why would Doctor Strange get anywhere within the Hulk's reach. He's known the Hulk for years, he knows what he's capable of and he knows how to easily defeat him. He's subdued the Hulk numerous times. He even banished him from the Earth to the crossroads in the 1980s. He also knows that if the Hulk grabs him then he's done. Now, wasn't this battle near Manhattan, where there are about 6 million people? With all of the lives that the Hulk was threatening as WW Hulk, why would Doctor Strange get close to him instead of taking him out from a distance? Doctor Strange is much smarter than that.
Dr Strange didn't get close to him. He confronted Hulk on the astral plane, across the city from Hulk. Hulk was somehow able to affect Strange's physical form via the astral plane.
Strange's unwillingness to banish Hulk to the Crossroads (or similar) was actually explained in the story (basically along the lines of "we've made him someone else's problem enough times; every time he comes back madder and stronger than when we sent him away; time to stop shirking responsibility").
