> Great post. I think WWH has been a great story-line in provoking controversy and in raising moral dilemmas. I know some fans of other characters/groups have been ignoring it as a Hulk fan boy fest but I think the story has incredible substance and I have really enjoyed (as a relatively non-Hulk fan)debating the finer points with the "Hulk crew."

True indeed there is a lot more going on than Marvel giving Hulk fans a wet dream come true.

This story and the Planet Hulk story have been so much more. Besides giving Hulk something that I felt he had been terribly lacking in, was a purpose. Hulk became a inspirational character for outcasts and those that didn't fit in. It was a slow growth as he was reluctant at first. The truth of the matter was that the Hulk had a fear of himself. He didn't trust that he could do right.

Another underlying moral seams to be true friendships. The Illuminati claimed they were Hulks friends and many of them have helped him in the past in some of his worst times. But when things got tough they copped out on him. Not only did they lie to him and tricked him into saving the planet, they arrogantly tell him they're sick of being his "friend," and they know what's best for him. Well good for Hulk cause he's met some true friends ones that stood by him in the face of death. Friends that helped him develope a faith that he could do the right thing. Friends that have not feared him but told him when he was wrong to his face, yet still accepted him without passing judgement. I loved that about Planet Hulk. Friends that will not let him retrogress into an even more savage being but had the patience to help him grow into a respectable and wiser character. Friends who taught the Savage how to be civilized, a King.

Yea right, Hulk Smash! see ya!
