no i just think i would remember a giant green guy that has been on tv for years,tearing up places,fighting monsters,gods,superheroes etc,when seeing him up close,& personal.

To be fair Hulk did pretty much ninja the group, not sure many if any of them got a clear sight apart from the one he crippled and put into a coma who obviously isn't talking any time soon.

But I do get what you mean and I'm glad Ewing isn't going to drag out the "is Hulk back?" thing for too long judging by the solicits for the next few issues.


Cheers.

So is Hulk speaking, does he remember the events of Sakaar through Doc Green? Or is this the Brooding - "Rarghhh" monster?

Hulk is speaking a lot. He's extremely intelligent (he's at least genius-level according to Banner) but also extraordinarily brutal and monstrously calculating. Somewhere between the more sadistic portrayals of Joe Fixit and the Punisher personality wise so far basically.

No idea if he remembers the events of Sakaar, not sure why you'd expect those to come up in the first two issues of a fresh title launch. I've no doubt Al Ewing remembers though, he's a continuity buff and has already included some incredibly obscure Hulk continuity references in the first couple of issues.


Cheers.

Not too worried about a lack of smashing. It's only two issues and we've had plenty of Hulk screen time, I don't need a rampage or a big fight every issue.

Based on the Hulk smashing Ewing wrote in No Surrender and the solicits for upcoming issues (a fight with the Avengers and some big fights promised) I'm happy to give Ewing plenty of time to build.


Cheers.

Anyone read the first two issues?

Solid start I think. Moody and atmospheric. Hitting some nice horror notes. I was a little worried from Ewing's interviews that this would end being too Bruce Jones-y, and whilst it does have *some* of the vibe from that run it's not got the stuff that made that so awful (no Hulk and completely shitting on established characters and continuity - Ewing has loads of Hulk and is an absolute continuity buff).

His Hulk is absolutely brutally violent. Ewing has said he wants readers to really question whether Hulk is the guy they should root for and he's doing a good job on that front so far.

Interesting tidbit from the second issue - Banner isn't a super genius anymore thanks to the arrow through the head. He's still smart but can't build Banner-tech force fields or any of that kind of super science stuff anymore. He suggests that this Hulk is actually smarter than he is now which makes his brutality all the more disturbing.

Art is really good for the most part but I'm not a fan of the Hulk's face in close-ups, he looks a bit retarded. I can see what he's going for but it doesn't quite work for me and removed some of Hulk's menace.


Definitely on-board with this for the foreseeable, nice to be excited about a Hulk book again. Aside from a brief spell under Duggan which was okay the Hulk book has been awful since Pak left and that was 7 years ago now.


Cheers.

The list of Hulks that are above Thor just keeps getting longer and longer.

Liam I think it’s time you made me Happy

The Sentry feat? I don't have scans. Basically he one-punch obliterated the moon. It looks more like an EP blast from the art actually but they say he punched the moon in half on the next page.

It is in an alternate reality type thing though so questionable although I think the clear intention was to show that Sentry would be capable of that (the alternate reality is one set up by Dr Strange, Bob Reynolds interfaces with it as it allows the Sentry and Void to manifest where they can't do any real damage as everything in that dimension just rebuilds itself when he finishes).


Cheers.

When is it released

Came out yesterday FYI.

Was actually quite interesting, better than I was expecting. Also a power showing that'll make you moist.


Cheers.

It was okay. It just felt identical to basically any Slott Spider-Man issue in the Peter Parker is rich period so it didn't really do much for me as an Iron Man book.

Food and Fitness / Re: Dehydrating to make weight
« on: June 28, 2018, 08:18:49 AM »
Ulf. I hate that dehydrating is a thing in boxing. It so often results in one guy who is a healthy, legit example of that weightclass, and another guy who is a gigantic potato chip. Which in turn leads to one of two results: the giant potato-chip just ragdolls the bonefide little guy and smashes him a in few rounds. Or the little guy hangs on for dear life for a few rounds and then the potato-chip is completely exhausted. Either result is dangerous, with a little guy taking punches he isn't built to take, or the giant potato-chip being completely exhausted and helpless as the little guy bounces his dry brain around his skull.

This, hard.

I always made weight legitimately, but I boxed at cruiser or light heavy which were usually only a dozen or so pounds beneath my walking around weight at the time so it wasn't super difficult

I'd be all in favour of same-day weigh ins to stop it but the problem is every other fucker is doing it now so it can be a big disadvantage not to. Especially at lower weights a few lbs can make a difference.


Cheers.

Same day weigh in, or do you have a day to rehydrate?

The weigh-in is at mid-day on the Saturday and the fight itself is the Sunday evening so a good 30+ hours in between.


Cheers.

Food and Fitness / Dehydrating to make weight
« on: June 25, 2018, 05:30:31 AM »
Anyone ever do this before a weigh-in for an event?

I've got a boxing fight coming up and fighting at a lighter weight than I have in the past (previously I've fought at Welterweight (147lbs) but this time I'm coming down to Light Welterweight (140lbs)). I could probably make the weight legitimately if I really tried but I'm thinking I might give the dehydration strategy a try instead as it'd probably be a really grim few weeks otherwise.

The weigh-in is about 30 hours before the event give or take so a decent amount of time to rehydrate. Bearing in mind I'm not a professional so don't want to be killing myself dehydrating excessively, what's a reasonable amount of water weight to lose by dehydration? And does anyone have any tips on the best ways to do it without knackering yourself too much before the event?

Thanks in advance!


Cheers.

ICT / Re: Immortal Hulk vs two Gods
« on: June 22, 2018, 12:14:17 PM »
He was clearly a lot stronger than Thor/Herc level in that scene, but then, he is the Hulk after all. We've known that the Hulk is significantly stronger than Thor and Herc for years now. Even Cho-Hulk is portrayed as comfortably stronger than Thor these days.

More importantly it's nice to be excited about the Hulk book again. The first issue of Immortal Hulk had a nice horror vibe and I really like the menacing portrayal of the Hulk without making him a mute/idiot. The solicits for the first 6 issues sound really interesting I think, and it's about time because the Hulk book has been absolutely awful for years now.


Cheers.

Daredevil beats the absolute shit out of him and any other top tier if he has time to adjust to his powers. The only thing that holds Creel back from being an elite threat is him being a moron.


Cheers.

To be fair Juggy looked WAY beyond Thor in raw strength there. Almost a Hulk level showing.

Also from those scans Thor basically admits he hit Juggy and ran away so it's not like he was KO'd.

Is this still Aaron? He's really going out of his way to piss Thor fans off now with some of that dialogue if so. "I'm the worst Thor ever!"


Cheers.
