Hulk vs Thor promises to be “the most brutal brawl in Marvel Comics history”

While the two heroes have fought before, Marvel says this latest face-off between the Hulk and Thor will be a fight for the ages.

Fight!

Banner of War hasn’t even started yet, but Marvel Comics is already talking about its finale. That’s to be expected though, as the publisher is whipping up a monster amount of fervor for the storyline.

In it, Hulk and Thor will cross paths and come to blows, with the result being… well probably not great for one of them. According to Marvel, the story will crossover into both character’s solo books, and have quite the “shocking” end.

If you like classic tussles between ridiculously-powered characters, this one sounds like it’s for you.

In THOR #26, Odin forces Thor to realize the gravity of Banner’s situation — and its connection to that mysterious, violent incident in El Paso. But when Iron Man’s interference causes more harm than good, our two rivals face shocking changes that change the stakes of the battle…for good.

Then the time for victory comes at last in HULK #8. Marvel’s two heaviest hitters expend their rage on one final, brutal brawl that will answer once and for all which of these heroes is the strongest. But in a fight between gods, monsters and men, what becomes of the victor? The loser? And who really has the authority to decide?
