There’s a new/old Hulk in the Marvel Universe.
(She) Hulk SMASH
Jennifer Walters has survived the Civil War, but not unscathed. On December 28th, she rises from the rubble, re-entering the world as a different kind of hero in the brand new HULK #1! Today Marvel is pleased to present your first look inside the debut issue from Eisner Award-winning writer Mariko Tamaki (This One Summer) and rising star artist Nico Leon (Spider-Man)! Be there as they chronicle the ongoing adventures of Jennifer Walters – and bring you a Hulk book for Marvel NOW! the likes of which you’ve never seen before!
Following the traumatic events of Civil War II, Jen is determined to move forward, to go on with her life. But there is something bubbling under the surface. A quiet rage. The physical and mental wounds are still fresh. The pain of the past and all she’s lost is always there – an undercurrent, a pulse, waiting to quicken and trigger her transformation into the one thing she doesn’t have control over…the HULK! Jennifer Walters’ greatest battle is about to begin. One that will pit her against the monster inside. Can she control the rage that consumed her cousin Bruce for so long? Or will she succumb to it? Find out when Tamaki and Leon bring you the can’t-miss HULK #1 – coming to comic shops and digital devices on December 28th!
A Hulk of a different kind
So it looks like there’ll be plenty of smashing in this one, even though Jennifer Walters is the star. That’s pretty far from the She-Hulk that you know and love, as Jen is no longer green (she’s grey, as you can see) and she’s inherited some more of her late-cousin’s traits.
In fact, from the sound of that promo text, she looks to be positively mad. And I mean that in a few senses. Not only will she be transforming in this soft-reboot of the character, but she’ll be seemingly as anger-based as the Hulk of old. It’s different, that’s for sure, but it sounds like it could be a good one. Jen has never been overly able to hold down a solo book in the past, but the new dynamic just might change that. It’s interesting enough to get me interested at any rate, how ’bout you?
