Hmm, have any of Bruce's mental therapy sessions ever focuses on the abuse?

I would think so, but having trouble remembering if they ever did.

That really is a good question. As far as I remember, the solutions have been short-term fixes. In IH #377, it seemed that the two ascendant personas at that time (Savage and Joe) agreed to help out Bruce for the greater good. As we discovered much later, Bruce subconsciously created a fail safe (Savage Banner) since he believed (I am postulating) that the merger was only temporary, and eventually he would lose it. Now, with Joe restricted to the Banner form, it makes me wonder--how much control does Banner exert over his personalities? He can suppress them for extended periods of time (e.g., Devil, Savage, Joe) yet he can choose which form he or they will be able to use (again, Savage "Banner", Joe "Banner", a Bruce-controlled Savage Hulk). It would be interesting if Ewing could explore or address this aspect. Any thoughts?
