So what's everyone's thoughts?

First off, so glad I was wrong on Joe making a sacrifice. A few things I got close on so allow me to toot my horn, although to be fair so many theories were being thrown about over the years eventually something would be right.

- TOBA didn't go away at the end of Ewing's run
- While a new incarnation wasn't created, we do have a unified system which is sorta close
- Instead of exiled off planet, Banner's choosing to go there (lots of parallels over the series to Hulk eras)
- Remember the twins theory based on the two cribs way back when? It sort of came true now that we know Sterns and Banner are related.
- Hulk did the Job thing and TOAA made an appearance

Fun Stuff
All the references (Berengetti, Jarella, etc)
Proto Hulk appearance

It was a great finale, some unexpected twists. Loved it!

Sterns and Banner being related, didn't see that one coming at all!
It was always obvious that TOBA was TOAA's counterpart, but TOBA being described as TOAA's Hulk was pretty cool. Quite litterally two sides of the same coin. Not unlike Banner and the Hulk.
The Job thing was good, even if you don't know who Job is. Knowing the Book of Job makes this story better though.
A few differences between Hulk and Job; Hulk sinned more than Job ever did, he never had any faith to begin with and I'm also pretty sure Job never said "screw you" to God's face. But still, it worked.
Could #25 be what happened if Hulk hadn't shown Sterns mercy?

Two Hulks in the mirror instead of one was also new. The story ending with Banner, Joe and Savage on the same "team" was awesome.

Also loved how the FF came to Bruce/Hulk's aid again.

A few questions. "Did I somehow absorb the DEVIL on my shoulder?" Bruce and Devil were connected in the Below Place. Could Devil be a part of Banner now in some way? And with Devil being the father figure of the bunch, are his Bruce's father issues resolved?
"Did I lay an old ghost to rest?" Brian?

One more thing, that horned skull. Any guesses on what that might mean?
