Suit Up: Hulk Hurts Everyone
Jan 11, 2018
Why not take a tip from the one superhero that makes everyone run for cover? That's right. You heard it here first. When it's time to get angry, the best course of action is to...get green. Why be discriminate when you can smash everyone with a broad fist? It's a tried-and-true method. Ol' Greenskin has been pounding the ground, throwing tanks, and pulverizing opponents since comic books cost less than a quarter, and he's still king of the hill! So let's pay tribute to the big guy who knows how to bring the pain: no one is safe from a good pounding as in this month's edition of Suit Up we tip our hats to the Incredible Hulk!
Incredible Hulk #714
What's the mark of a true hero? Well, that point's up for debate. Saving the town at the end of the day. Staying in touch with humanity. Trying to find the moral of the story. All good points to make. But we think over here at the end of the day that the mark of a true hero is one doesn't rest on his or her laurels. They allow themselves to take in the moment, and then it's back to work, because there will always be a new threat tomorrow. Evil never sleeps. Amadeus Cho is going to be reminded of that lesson quickly, as he leaves his apocalyptic adventure on Planet Hulk behind him to return to Earth with the raging monster inside of him unchained! Evil may very well be inside of himself! Check out the insanity in Incredible Hulk #714 (JAN180909) which you'll find in the February issue of Marvel PREVIEWS!
So, the tagline of the ongoing storyline for Avengers #684 (JAN180900) is "No Surrender," and what it breaks down to is a weekly epic event that explodes in your face via an oversized issue. When we say it explodes, we mean that figuratively, of course, but when you see the lineup of creative talent that are working on this story, you know we're not stretching things too thin. After all, Mark Waid, Jim Zub, and Al Ewing are the writers behind this story. So, "explosive"? Yeah. Pretty much. Hulk is back from the dead, and nothing seems to work when you try to get the big green guy to stop his path of destruction. Just look at the cover. Would YOU be able to put the brakes on this behemoth? Pick up this issue of Avengers, and see how things shake out when the Marvel heroes try to contain The Immortal Hulk. Nuff said.
Thor Vs. Hulk: Champions of the Universe TP
Imagine a contest of champions went something like this: an Elder of the Universe comes to Earth because he wants you to entertain him. He wants a spectacle unlike any other, and what that means logistically is that he wants to see a smackdown from our planet's strongest hero. Can you then imagine how Thor and Hulk would bend at the knee, and admit the other one is the strongest? Like that would happen, right? Well, here's the headline: Asgard's Avenger with the golden locks and the jolly green goliath run a gauntlet of impossible challenges to show their worthiness in order to square off with the ultimate cosmic menace! Bring your headphones, 'cause this one's going to get loud! Check out the Thor Vs. Hulk: Champions of the Universe TP (JAN181037) from the January issue of Marvel PREVIEWS!
One-12 Collective: Thor Ragnarok — Gladiator Hulk Action Figure
You can't make an omlette without breaking a few eggs. That's the law of the land. So by that logic, you can't expect to win a round in the ring when you're up against the One-12 Collective: Thor Ragnarok — GladiatorHulk Action Figure (OCT178172). Look at him. He's larger than life, and comes with a spiked battle axe and war maul. Consider your legs broken...along with the rest of your body. Do you really expect there to be a contest? Put him alongside any of your other puny figures, and watch them melt like they were kept outside in the hot August heat. This movie star may be called "monster" by some, but the massive toned physique and his richly detailed costume will not have him easily dismissed. He's no contender. He's a gargantuan green gladiator! Look for him in the Toys, Statues, Models section of the January PREVIEWS catalog!

What happens behind the scenes when Hulk just doesn't advance his "smash" agenda? Could it be that he's possibly grooming for a new gig in Hollywood?

So just "marvel" at this spectacle! The big guy as seen by this figure represents one of the most dramatic scenes in the film Thor: Ragnarok, and now you can replicate the drama right on your tabletop with Hulk armed with armor, axe, and mace.
