Mark Waid On The ‘Hulk’ Relaunch: ‘You’re Not Sure Which Banner You’re Going To Get’ [Interview]

Indestructible Hulk #1, Marvel Comics

When Mark Waid and Leinil Yu launched Indestructible Hulk as part of the Marvel Now initiative, they took the relationship between Bruce Banner and his giant green alter-ego into a new direction. Instead of struggling against the rage-fueled monster inside him, Banner chose to use the Hulk as a directed weapon, trading off his destructive services for the chance to focus on making the world a better place as a scientist. Now, just as we're getting used to the new status quo and Banner's position as S.H.I.E.L.D.'s greatest asset, things are set to shake up again, with the book relaunching as Hulk, with Mark Bagley providing art and a whole new set of challenges.

For more information, I spoke to Waid about the shift in the focus, the relationship between Banner and the Hulk and how it's changed over the past fifty years, and his process for writing a first issue -- a must-read look at crafting an introduction from one of the masters of the form.

The big announcement at Friday's Ultimate Universe panel at San Diego Comic-Con was a new series by Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley with the modest title, Cataclysm: The Ultimates Last Stand.

The arrival of Galactus in the Ultimate Universe will initially be explored in Hunger, by Joshua Hale Fialkov and Leonard Kirk, but what Galactus's arrival means for the Ultimate version of Earth will play out in Cataclysm -- and with a name like that, it doesn't sound promising. Comics Alliance spoke to series editor Mark Paniccia to get more background on the series.

Fraction, Bagley and Allred Rein In ‘Fantastic Four’ and ‘FF’ [Double-Review]

One way creators try to leave their stamp on company-owned characters is to raise the stakes of a story. "I told the biggest ________ story ever," they want to say as they move on to other work. Of course, raising the stakes in a Fantastic Four book, considering that the original creative team of Jack Kirby and Stan Lee put the heroes in a situation in which Earth was threatened by a planet-eating demigod with a device that could destroy the universe, is a particular challenge. Yet recent creative team
