Yes, it has come to this. I have reached the conclusion that Marvel’s last two big events — House of M and Civil War — have actually served their purpose, despite less-than-stellar plotting and shaky characterizations. Their purpose was to get me excited about this summer’s event, World War Hulk, by making me hate the Marvel Universe so much I’ll enjoy seeing Hulk taking his revenge on it.
I also find it interesting that after the eight-issue House of M, and the delays in shipping the seven-issue Civil War, World War Hulk is only set for five issues. C’mon, there’s more smashing to do than that. Hulk Smash Earth-616!!! 🙂
See the trailer.
(I wonder if they’re taking a lesson from DC Comics, where they worked out a lot of their character mistakes by have Superboy punch them?)
