I have been having a great time so far getting into The Fall of the Hulks series that Marvel has just launched. One reason in particular is their choice of villains they’ve got teaming up against the Hulk, or should I say Banner since technically he can’t change into the Hulk anymore (that’s not going to last for long though). But aside from awesome old school villains like the Leader and Egghead appearing the one that always gets me pumped is MODOK! Yeah that’s right the Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing. He’s just one of those weird ass villains I think everyone adores! His involvement in the Fall of the Hulks inspired me to re-read one of my favorite Hulk storylines which transpire in issues #287-290. If you haven’t already read these I suggest you run down to your local comic shop and pick up these back issues asap! It will give you a little more insight on his hatred for the Hulk.
As you may already know I am huge Incredible Hulk fan yet It has been at least a year since I have followed the comic book. I will admit I was hooked on Planet Hulk & World War Hulk. Infact I must admit those were some of the best Hulk stories I’ve read in years. Then what happens to my Hulk title that Greg Pack had so magnificently written? Well for some reason the title tuned into The Incredible Hercules and we start following the exploits of Hercules instead of the Hulk. Um ok…then a new title simply called Hulk emerges written by Jeph Loeb. Well I have to be honest about Mr. Loeb, he’s pretty hit or miss. Usually a miss in my opinion. I read maybe the first two issues of this title and was less than impressed. In fact so unimpressed I never picked up an issue again.
