So uh....anybody gonna post the scans of the last few pages of Avengers: No Road Home?

This week's issue was pure awesome. Hulk as a creature of Crom - this is the revelation I have been smashing for.

Well I liked the revelation in issue 15 here...though I think they hinted at it earlier and it may have even been mentioned in this thread

The Immortal Hulk is Devil Hulk.

Whilst also essentially retconning what the Devil Hulk as originally portrayed was. Not actually an evil snake-like creature - that was just Bruce's mental projection as he didn't believe he could trust a word that Hulk said.

I love the way the Hulk's explanation of his goals in this issue times alongside his actions in this week's Avengers: No Road Home. I hope Ewing is around for a very, very long time.

Has Bommie sucked hard in recent appearances? I understood Cain hadn't looked quite so unstoppable in the years since his full power returned.

If nothing else, I'd say Bommie had a modest edge in brute strength.

His last two appearances have been pretty uber actually. He briefly returned from the dead during Chaos War and briefly got the upper hand against Pak's Gravage Hulk. His body (not mind) was then reanimated during Waid's run and he beat the utter fuck out of Hulk and some Avengers who eventually had to resort to BFR to get rid of him (although Hulk had a severe brain injury at the time and Blonsky was emitting enough radiation to weaken everyone there including Hulk which makes no sense but not much Waid wrote did).

Other than those two he's been officially dead since the start of Loeb's Red Hulk stuff so he hasn't had any showings for some years that I can recall.

Another come back was teased recently in Immortal Hulk which should be fun given the quality of that run and its horror vibes.

Blonsky may or may not be a bit stronger than Juggy (both have some excellent high end showings vis a vis the top tier heroes) but I don't think even on his better days Blonsky has enough x-factor to do significant damage to Cain so sooner or later Emil is going to lose unless he punts him into orbit.


I’m hoping it was a speciality bullets as he apparently could kill non-immortal hulk with that shot

Doubt it. I can think of a half dozen times off the top of my head that various Hulks have shrugged off similar damage pre-Immortal with varying degrees of trouble.

In this issue it looks like even Betty survives a full-on headshot.

Hulk went down by a few scratches.

Unless there is more than is shown in your scans, Hulk doesn't go down at all. He's ineffective as a threat, sure.

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.

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:
