Yeah, the whole scene was too confusing to read.

As a feat it's weird and probably not really calc-able or anything, but the story was really cool IMO.

Yep. The whole run has been absolutely brilliant and this issue was great. Suitably epic and had some great character moments (the Hulk/Banner interaction in particular was a great twist on the dynamic).

Prob related to absorbing man closing the door too. Hence why Brian was freaking out and that was Pucks plan all along to bring  creel to that specific location to absorb back the gamma

Then again wouldn’t shock me if they intended it to be his pure POWAR!!!!

Absorbing Man didn't close the door. All he did was give Hulk back the gamma energy that he had earlier taken from him.

Hulk is the one who closes the door after thunder clap-dispersing the One Below All.

I wouldn't say "fucked up" is an appropriate word.

He dispersed him, which is still an insane feat (considering that the One Above All is significantly
above everything in Marvel, and this thing is apparently his exact opposite =/ in strength in power,
this could be one of the most bullshit feats to ever be bullshitted). Unless of course, its explained
that this was some kind of weak avatar/not the "exact" real entity/etc.

He did say afterword though that his attack was there to buy time to seal it away, implying that
he didn't actually kill, much less harm it. And considering how it continued to narrate everything
that was happening, even as it was and had been dispersed, it didn't seem to feel threatened either.

So tl;dr, he didn't fuck it up. But he did do something highly impressive, that could be bullshit.

Yeah, I was being more than a little tongue in cheek with the "fucked up" line. But hurting/dispersing a peer to The One Above All for a minute or so (Hulk's estimate of how much time he bought them) is still a helluva feat.

As an aside, I don't believe that it is the One Below All narrating this (and the preceding) issue(s). I'm not sure who it is yet, there's some interesting discussion about it over on Alvaros Hulk board.

Immortal Hulk fucked up a being who is apparently the evil inversion of the One Above All with a thunderclap this week   :o

Also why the fuck are they so reluctant to let him wear the skull? They let DD run around in full devil suit for a whole season+, Frank painted his skull (which is iconic as most any superhero look) two seasons ago and has probably worn it for a total of about 20 minutes screen time since.

Yeah basically exactly that.

Pretty disappointed, nowhere near season 1 level and a million miles from peak Daredevil quality. Fight scenes were good but I never felt that engaged with either storyline. Acting was good but I didn't like the characterisation of most of them, especially Frank.

We've had 2 seasons of him umm'ing and ahh'ing about embracing the Punisher gig, did we really need a third one? Would have been nice to get more than 10 seconds of him in full Punisher mode knowing we won't be getting another series.

Looking back he got progressively less and less Punisher-y with each new series. DD2 he was waging a concerted, military precision war on organised crime groups, and killing individual criminals as the opportunities arose (the guy offering him underage porn). At the end he turned his back on Karen (representing his humanity), painted the skull and seemed ready to go to war. Punisher S1 undid most of that and really in the two solo series the only guys he went after were purely personal crusades, people that he was connected to or came after him. Seemed like a fairly illogical leap to go from that to the final scene with him targeting unrelated crime groups (though it would have fit the end of DD2).

I liked Bernthal's portrayal of an early Frank Castle, the action scenes were brutal and great, but reflecting back on the three series as a whole this feels like a missed opportunity.

The fights are really good, it's delightfully brutal, well-acted, well written etc and I am enjoying it for what it is.

It really doesn't feel anything like The Punisher though. I know some people have said that about Bernthal Punisher before, but I thought Punisher s1 and especially DD s2 had the right vibe for an early, angry, pre-full war Punisher. Here (or up to the end of ep 5 at least), he's just a guy who happens to be called Frank Castle.


ICT / Re: Thor's Godblast vs Immortal Hulk
« on: January 15, 2019, 08:42:37 PM »
It would definitely hurt Hulk but I don't see how it would stop him for more than a few moments. This Hulk regenerates almost instantaneously from being cut into dozens of tiny body parts, vital organs removed and cut up etc. He remains conscious, aware, and in total control of his scattered body parts while just a disembodied head in a glass jar. If UV light wasn't a factor he explicitly would have regen'd in moments from being force-reverted to Banner and then reduced to a charred skeletal husk. He literally no-sells having enormous holes blown clean through his torso etc etc.

There is basically no level of physical damage that stops him for more than a few moments, and the Godblast ultimately deals physical damage (albeit at an extremely high level).

It doesn't matter because this isn't Indestructible Hulk.
it does as I said his feats are comparable.

They aren't remotely comparable. Waid's Hulk barely had a healing factor of note. Immortal Hulk isn't even KO'd by being cut into thousands of pieces and can still control his limbs despite being in glass jars 20 feet away. He instantaneously heals from anything. Waid's Hulk wasn't clearly stronger than Thor (his Banner said the question of who was stronger was up for debate), Immortal Hulk treats Thor-level guys (including Thor himself) like a minor nuisance. Waid's Hulk wasn't an energy drainer etc etc.

Immortal Hulk would run an absolute train over Indestructible Hulk.


Assuming his durability scales as well he'd beat the shit out of almost every version of Hulk.

Hulk has had some very decent energy resistance feats in recent years, particularly the gravage incarnation. That particular Hulk (amongst other examples) no-sold an all-out energy drain from Loeb Rulk, who had previously drained the savage Hulk completely and killed the Surfer himself with the energy drain. I wouldn't give Surfer much chance of pulling that tactic off against that Hulk, he had a pretty consistent run of showings against that tactic (going right back to PAD's first run through Pak/Loeb).

Current Hulk can still have his energy drained, but it's not a game-ender because he's a potent energy absorber himself and can just take the energy straight back:


Yeah wasn't expecting much from this but legit fucking loved every minute of it. It's glorious, like a brilliantly animated 2-hour unashamed love letter to the Spider-Man universe.

Also watched it in 2D and regretted that choice about halfway through, might have to go again in 3D.

Some Uncanny X-Men stuff that Gree will like:

- X-Man is back and he's holy crap powerful.
- he has easily enslaved Magneto, Omega Red, Blob and Angel and converted them into his horsemen.
- he has kidnapped Apocalypse and keeps him pinned to an X-shaped crucifix just to remind him of what hell looks like
- he shuts off Shadowcat's powers with a word
- he easily connects to every mind on the planet at once (a feat that isn't always that impressive for psis depending on who is writing, but here it clearly is intended to be... Jean says that Xavier couldn't have done it on his best day)
- Legion claims that Nate is beyond Omega level

Not sure I like what they are doing with Nate's character (he is insane and trying to remake the world in his own image, eliminating war, industries that pollute the earth, bringing back extinct species etc while accepting that many lives will be lost in the process... a bit like Uber Cable but much more aggressive with how he goes about it) but it's nice to see his power-level get mad props at least.


Marvel Zombies / Re: Immortal Hulk

Yeah it was great. Loving it.

Also loved the Best Defense Immortal Hulk one-shot that came out today. Some really great moments in that. It's mostly a Banner story and Ewing uses a cool technique where he drops in panels from the earliest Hulk stories that mirrors Banner's actions in this book.

I love how much of a continuity buff he is. Even the little things... there's a moment in this one where the villain of the piece justifies himself by saying "I just wanted to make them pay." To which Hulk responds: "never stop making them pay... we're real understanding about that." Brilliantly subtle little nod to Planet/World War Hulk.

Finally, it's a great time to be a Hulk fan again.

Hulk vs upgraded (and now possessed by One Below All) Absorbing Man round 2:

This book is so fucking great at the moment.

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.
