The Unlikely Hulked Out Characters We Want To See
With Marvel's "Hulked Out Heroes" just over the horizon -- and one of its stars, Hulkpool, introduced in this week's "World War Hulks #1 -- we here at ComicsAlliance are pretty excited about the possibilities. But even in the face of a series whose covers promise hulked-up versions of the Thing, Spider-Man and even Devil Dinosaur, we can't help but acknowledge that there's no way we're going to get everyone, be they villains or just obscure heroes. It's just not possible.
But that won't stop us from dreaming! So today, ComicsAlliance's Chris Sims brings us the six unlikely characters we want to see as Hulks!
What's more, out of everything on our list, this one actually has the most chance of happening. Not only has MODOK been a crucial part of the "Fall of the Hulks" storyline so far, but "H.O.H." writer Jeff Parker has been a key creator in the post-2000 MODOK Renaissance thanks to his work on "Marvel Adventures Avengers" #9, which featured a MODOK'd version of the Hulk.
And c'mon, how hard would it be to reverse that to give us the Hulked Up Lifeform Knowingly Designed Only for Killing?
#5: ROCKET RACER
#4: HYPNO -HUSTLER
At this point, giving him Hulk powers might seem like gilding the hypnotic disco lily, but it'd be worth the overkill just to see what kind of music the Hulk would pound out on a hot pink guitar. I'm guessing thrash metal.
#2: J. JONAH JAMESON
Plus, much like the regular Hulk, Jameson has spent quite a bit of time yelling for a woman named Betty, although his reasons had less to do with romance and more to do with light filing and getting his coffee. So the question isn't "will J. Jonah Jameson become a monster fueled by rage," but "why haven't they been coloring him green for the past forty years?"
#1: HULK HOGAN
Over the course of the past few years of Hulk stories, we've seen Green Hulk, Red Hulk, She-Hulk, Red She-Hulk, Cosmic Hulk, Sons of Hulk, New Hulk, Dark Hulk, and Space Hulk. So really, the only thing left is HULK HULK.
The best stories ask questions that the readers aren't sure how to answer, and for my money, there's not a lot you can say about a question like "Whatcha gonna do, Marvel Universe, when Doublehulkamania runs wild on you?"
