    After the fourth reading, I must say, I thoroughly enjoyed the story and new direction. Cates has me more interested in the character than I've been in a while. Ryan Ottley's art adds a nice touch. A little cartoony at times, but his Hulk looks powerful and explodes off the page. His Hulk is as dynamic looking as Sal Buscema's.

    Question - Anyone else think that since gamma is both science and magic; as stated in Al Ewing's run; Banner used his own gamma mind to create that palace in his head? I believe he is no longer being reactive, but proactive by learning how to use his gammafied body.

    Also, does everyone realize we were watching Banner-Hulk i.e. Banner in control of Hulk's body in that issue?


I wouldn't base any theories for Cates run on previously established continuity.
Cates pretty consistently shows a flagrant disregard for previously established canon and verisimilitude in general.
