  1. Marvel really needs to get rid of the back up stories and drop thier prices back to $2.99 – this $3.99 “experiment” has obviously been a failure since books are at an all time low!

    • I agree. I have a hunch Bruce’s father is going to come back soon. The dead can now come back in Chaos War and Pak said the Hulk’s all time worst enemy will appear. I wonder if Brian Banner himself may have a semi magical origin. He could be a child of Nightmare or Dream queen. One possible reason Nightmare has been so interested in Hulk over the years. I have other theories on why Nightmare targets the Hulk but I will save them for later.

    • The reason why the experiment is here to stay is that even with losing readers (as it happens every year anyway), Marvel is making a sizeable profit. Sales are low, but due to the higher price point on select books, they are more than breaking even.

      • Dailypop,I am surpised you did not do a review of the new Alpha Flight one shot. I know you like that team. And the recent issue has the original John Byrne line up.
        Do you know what issue Snowbird was brought back life?

  2. Don’t be to surprised if they use the old (but very popular idea) of putting the brains of an intelligent villain inside the body of a musclebound villain.

    Examples of theis include The Leader’s mind inside the body of The Rhino, Tyrannus’mind inside the body of The Abomination and lastly Thuderbolt’s mind inside the body of Zzaxx.

    Brian Banner’s mind inside the body of The Abomination has already been suggested by another fan. It would definitely be exciting to see.
