    Ha ha, nice name. Please, don't leave. We need more!

    I have to state my disgust for what Ewing did to Savage (he is a child). HOWEVER, on the other hand, his reaction to the aftermath shows not only more characterization but also what his response should be if writers/editorial decide that Hulk will kill people during his rampages--true remorse which I sincerely doubt the majority of Marvel's titular heroes demonstrate. I am thinking about a few past retcons that stated there were casualties whenever Savage was present. Those writers tend to gloss over the fact that Hulk and Banner (1) have tried to avoid people, (2) have warned people ("you wouldn't like me when I'm angry" or "leave Hulk alone"), and (3) when they have found peace, the "civilized" world almost always finds them, commences the ensuing skirmish, and never takes responsibility--the fault is always Hulk and Banner.

    My apologies for the rant. I am...disappointed that the Hulk who is going to be the focus/victim for the next few issues is Savage, the one who "is always hurting". Yes, I know it is premature to complain since Ewing is the master of the swerve--he knows the continuity of the characters he is writing--and all of these events are probably a part of an end goal. Betty's gone, Rick is more than likely next, followed by Samson, Dr. McGowan and Shadow Base...slowly strip away all ties, the anchors so to speak, Banner/Hulk have to the world, which might make them more susceptible to the influence of TOBA.

I totally understand the rant, hehe. But here's something: Ewing said that starting from now things would start to get really ugly for all the incarnations the system. They won't suffer alone, if this make you(us) fell better. LOL.

"The first ever Hulk comic was a horror comic. The sell wasn't the strength so much as the unstoppability — it's made very clear that nothing can hurt or hinder him."
"His strength was just part of his unstoppable nature – he was more like the bomb than a superhero, and one that might randomly go off against friend or foe alike."  Al Ewing
