Immortal Hulk - Above Top Tier?
« on: October 05, 2018, 06:21:38 AM »
Given the Hulk's performance relative to Vision, Thor, Lady-Thor, Hercules, Wonderman, Sasquatch in Avengers 684-686, and the self titled book. Is Immortal Hulk operating above top tier?

Based on the way he treats Thor in that preview he is *easily* above and beyond Kurse level at present (but is likely amped beyond normal levels by absorbing Sasquatch energy and/or possession by the One Below All).

It'll be interesting to see what is said about any potential power up in the full issue.

Will also be interesting to see how the current amped She Hulk fares as she is supposed to be above the Hulk at present.


Cheers.

Given what i’ve seen in previews and read in the Immortal Hulk thread here, i’d say yes, w. context as described above.

As an Avengers reader, i’m also looking forward to seeing a She-Hulk face off.

POW! SCOURGE! BREAK! THWACK!

Yes, he's above top tier and c'mon, let's face it, he's going to come out ahead of She-Hulk if they fight. He's the Hulk and that's just the way it goes. Even when Shulkie proved stronger than Hercules and was shown to be more than twice as strong as the Thing in the past, the best anyone would give her was that she was 'nearly as strong as the Hulk'.

She'll have to settle for being the second strongest Marvel hero. Hulk's in his own league.

This sounds like the dumbest incarnation of Hulk yet.

Is She Hulk going to present for the Avengers showdown?

Good question. She’s on the current roster. Maybe they’ll have her be absent though, if they dont want that can of worms opened.

No she’s 100% there. But they prob won’t fight and if they do it will be brief

Perhaps he absorbs her making him even stronger

If they want that return to status quo, it would escalate Hulk's situation and fix hers.

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

That would work. Nice call!

Indeed. But will this be a newer status quo? Hulk has lead the pack at Marvel for years, but this might be a simple way to cement that status.
