Not a fan of murderer Hulk though.

I'm okay with it because it's clearly going to be held up as a big deal (Banner's sense of discomfort suggesting it is a highly unusual if not unprecedented occurrence) which probably suggests it's going to be at least partly down to Brian Banner/TOBA's corrupting influence.


Cheers.

The Rulk that Hulk quite easily defeated in Avengers no surrender to the same author said that he was even stronger than Loeb's Rulk, the same Rulk who easily defeated Marvel heavyweights including: Hulk Savage, Thor OF, Silver surfer even the Observer etc.

It's stated in the same issue, shortly before the Hulk beats him, that this Rulk is nowhere near Ross's Rulk actually.

That's why top tier is better, since it encompasses the actual classes of characters like Thunder gods, flying bricks, bricks, heralds, mages, etc.


Eternals have almost the exact same powerset as heralds at a lower level.

Yup.

If "Herald level" is meant to encompass everyone who is at least as powerful as, say, Air Walker, up to and including peers to the Surfer, then Hulk is absolutely at the top end of that. He might only have a fraction of the number of powers but he'd beat the utter shit out of every actual Herald of Galactus aside from the Surfer. And even that is a bad stylistic match-up rather than a raw power deal.


Cheers.

Really didn't expect this show to get bogged down with the childish "no kill" stuff.  That kind of comic staple belongs in lighter adaptations, it feels ridiculously foolish in the world this season created.

They made a big thing of it in season 1 (DD vs Stick debate) and season 2 (DD vs Punisher debate) so it's not like this was a radical departure.


Cheers.

Bullseye from Netflix Daredevil season 3. Standard gear for everyone (so Bullseye gets the DD costume and batons to start plus anything he can lay his hands on - let's say it's an office environment).

vs Punisher

vs Black Widow

vs Hawkeye

vs Bucky


Bonus fights:

vs Punisher - pure h2h, no weapons for either one

vs Hawkeye - who is more accurate with ranged weapons?



Cheers.

Finished it. Somewhat underwhelming resolution but overall it's brilliant. Fisk <3

Not sure how I'd rank the seasons, will need to rewatch this one. Season 1 still tops overall I think. This is probably on par with the best bits of season 2 (i.e. the Punisher and Fisk bits) but overall better than s2 as it doesn't have the less good bits (i.e. the Hand stuff).


Cheers.

Not much with Fisk right now although I'm kinda curious about the FBI looking at their agents' debt problems.  I hadn't heard about that before.  Are they worried they might end up taking bribes if they rise in the ranks while having money problems?

I dunno about in the US but pretty much any government role with access to sensitive information requires financial vetting over here. I had to get it done for a shitty job with the Home Office and that only needed like the middle level of government vetting checks. And yeah it's because someone with financial issues can potentially be bought or otherwise influenced.

Liked the first 5 episodes a lot. Even when it isn't hitting peak levels the quality level is so much higher than the other Netflix shows (aside from Punisher).

Where's the thread for 6 onwards? Episode 6 is fucking great.


Cheers.

This Hulk is like the original and Fixit in that he reverts back to Banner when the sun comes up. Blasting him with a concentrated dose of the sun would have triggered the change back to Banner who was then cooked, so not just a case of Hulk being melted by raw power.

This is why the skeleton is Banner sized and the Avengers use UV lamps until daybreak to prevent Hulk regenerating. Sun = no Hulk.

The madder Namor gets, the stronger Namor gets. Imperius Rex!

Makes absolutely no sense (like most things Jason Aaron writes these days) but Namor is cool as fuck so I'll take it.


Cheers.

Hell of a prep feat too for the avengers. They just found out hulk only comes out at night shortly before approaching Hulk. Reporter told captain marvel first. Then when they confirmed Walter was out she got the avengers.  So not sure how they build the Helios in time to do that exactly plus have the UV drones. But hey...comics *shrugs*

I don't think the Helios thing would need to have been prepped specifically for the Hulk. Blasting most people with a concentrated beam of the sun is going to hurt (it nuked a town in the process so it's a potent offensive weapon). Wasn't Stark weaponising the sun during Hickman's Avengers run? It seems like something he would do.


Cheers.

The guy at Shadow Base notes that they cut him to pieces during the day so he is "nice and comfy in time for the next sunset". As soon as the sunset kicks in Hulk revives despite being cut into dozens of pieces stored in separate jars.


Cheers.

Thor got shit on LMAO.

@Liam, I don't think that proves Hulk > Jen. He f*cked with her mentally more than anything else. His punch didn't actually hurt her. They seemed evenish in the brief encounter and Hulk is amped significantly (Red Hulk and Sasquatch). I guess so is Jen (Righteous female anger).

He catches her punch before he psyches her out, and is lying flat on his back getting pounded after a sucker punch when he does so. That makes him look stronger IMHO.

I don't know how to assess the energy absorbing power-ups. The Red Hulk one hasn't been referenced since, and that was months ago; if we're supposed to believe that is still an active power-up when does it end? Is it permanent?

The Sasquatch one is at least much more recent and Sasquatch is significantly more powerful than the Rulk in question. But how much stronger was that intended to make the Hulk? All we have is one comment from Hulk ("gamma makes me stronger"). It's not referenced as a factor at all in this issue; if it was meant to be the key factor in Hulk's performance you'd think Ewing would have referenced it at least once.

We might find out more next issue with Hulk being experimented on by Shadow Base. At the moment I'm inclined to file it under the kind of vague power-up that World War Hulk got from absorbing the warp core explosion rather than something extremely significant (i.e. it's there and it exists but how big a factor is it actually? Very unclear).


Cheers.

Yeah basically a beam from the sun, nukes the surrounding area and reduces Hulk to a Banner-sized skeletal mass, the implication being that he reverted to Banner and was then incinerated.

It's stated that Hulk would have regen'd from it and carried on fighting if Stark and T'Challa hadn't used tech to continually bombard the skeleton with UV rays to slow his healing.

This Hulk is like Fixit in that he only transforms at night so him being killed here isn't so much about the gun being really powerful (although it seems to be that too based on the collateral damage) so much as it's ability to briefly revert Hulk to human form before cooking him.


Cheers.

Immortal Hulk > Mangog.

Nice to see Hulk making it clear who the #1 green strong guy on the block still is too, fuck Jason Aaron.


Cheers.

Jen seems set to have a major role based on this interview with Ewing:
