Looks like the jade giant is set on a collision course with the Frost Giants and an unexpected team-up with the legendary God of Thunder.
This April the creative team of Walt Simonson (yay!) and Mark Waid will be taking Bruce Banner and his mean, green alter-ego on a trip to Jotunheim. Apparently, the good doctor is on a secret mission for S.H.I.E.L.D. and when he and his team are discovered by some very angry frosty’s, he gets a lil angry.
“The Marvel Universe’s two most powerful heroes — the Hulk and Thor — join forces to quell a centuries-old war between Godlike forces,” says Axel Alonso, Editor In Chief, Marvel Entertainment. “But first, they’ll throw down in a slugfest to prove who’s more worthy to wield that pesky hammer. It’s an epic tale featuring two of Marvel’s most popular characters, told by two creators at the top of their craft.”
“Banner claims that he’s taking his crew to Jotunheim in search of a specific element that exists only at Frost Giant temperatures,” said writer Mark Waid in an interview with Marvel.com. “But Bruce has a hidden motive, as well. The real fun of it is how Bruce and his team get to Jotunheim in the first place; it’s a nifty piece of applied science, if I do say so myself.”
