No blatant spoilers from me this time. This one's worth catching on your own, though the tags are below if you want to look at them.

Put your brain away and enjoy a good old-fashioned smash-fest. Hulk and Sentry tear down the house and Tony Stark winds up saving the day once the Hulk's anger becomes too much for the east coast to handle.

You'll also learn the truth behind what destroyed Sakaar and it makes enough to sense for me to wonder why I didn't consider it as a possibility earlier. At the very least, it'll leave the "Come on, Reed Richards isn't stupid!" crowd at ease.


Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
At it turns out, Sakaar wasn't blown up by an errant shuttle core planted by Reed Richards, but by Miek who planted an old core that was kept by Sakaar's Red King. Miek did so in order to keep Banner's Hulk side out.


It's not Crisis or Civil War, but sometimes that's a good thing. Thumbs up.

EDIT: Errant spoiler tag fixed.

I was SOOOO glad this didn't fizzle out like all the other Marvel 'Event Books' of late. I was really worried about this due to the lateness of the book.

Hulk Vs. Sentry was certainly one of the best comic fights I can think of in quite some time. Before this, I'd say it was either the Superman/Darkseid fight from the end of the Supergirl story line in Superman/Batman or Superboy Prime against everyone in Infinite Crisis.

The person who was responsible for explosion on Sakaar, in hindsight, makes a ton of sense and sadly, was telegraphed due to him being the only one of the Warbound to have been allowed to grow as a character. I don't know why I didn't see it coming either. Odd.

I am kinda pissed off over who dies though. He was the best minor character in the Marvel Universe. He's been through so much and his death seemed like it was tacked on at the last minute. I will miss him.

EDIT: What the hell's wrong with this thread?

From the looks of things, while he was impaled, he was seen being loaded into an ambulance a few pages later. I have a feeling he lived, if not a little worse for the wear.

I had a feeling it was Miek all along, especially since he and the Brood were in there the night before.

As far as the death goes...

eh, it's probably a Skrull.

With the Hulk effectively out of commission for the time being, some new series are spawning from the end of WWH.

In January, the Hulk gets taken out of his own book and The Incredible Hulk becomes...The Incredible HERC! That's right, the mighty Hercules gets his own series...the Hulk's series! Here's an IGN interview to explain it all.

And the end of WWH saw life rise from the tattered pits of Sakaar. This turns out to be the Hulk's unborn child, now very much alive. This kid grows up quickly, because he'll be getting his own series: Skaar, Son of Hulk! Here's another IGN interview to give you a sneak peek.

After the solicitations previewed him becoming Red Hulk next year, I certainly didn't see the WWH end coming, nor did I anticipate these new titles. At the very least, it shakes up the status quo quite a bit.

And hey, who doesn't love the Mighty Hercules? He's every bit the god that Thor is, after all.

EDIT: And it looks like next week's Incredible Hulk issue will also be a must-read. The preview summary still reads "Classified", but from the looks of the preview pages, it looks like Zom (who I could have sworn was brushed off as a total afterthought after WWH #4) is still around, after all!

Eh, I didn't love that ending, but I didn't hate it either. The big fight was pretty good, but honestly my favorite part of this issue was the same as my favorite part from the last issue: Hulk dressing down the Illuminati. I love the fact that he totally outlines his plan for them, and his rationale behind it, AND it makes total sense.

A lot of good stuff from DC this week and it's the beginning of the end for Batman: BATMAN #676: It's the official start of Batman R.I.P. in which Tim Drake asks about Damien and we see one of the more frightening takes on the Joker.
