Warning! Spoilers forward for Thor #25
Marvel Comics is teasing an enormous twist about Bruce Banner’s new Hulk standing within the newest challenge of Thor. Whereas the Jade Large and God of Thunder are presently duking it out in a battle the likes of which has by no means been seen, Hulk and Thor’s Banner of Conflict occasion can also be unveiling the reality behind Banner’s weird new type because the Starship Hulk which has put Bruce extra in management over the Hulk following a devastating occasion in Texas. Nevertheless, a brand new improvement means that Hulk’s new standing is even darker than followers have to this point been led to imagine.
Moderately than being revealed in Banner’s personal Hulk collection by author Donny Cates, this main secret is being hinted at in Thor #25. As Thor confirmed within the earlier Hulk vs Thor: Banner of Conflict Alpha #1, it is extensively believed that Hulk went on a killing spree and killed 17 individuals in El Paso, Texas. Whereas the Avengers wished to carry him in to face justice, Banner underwent a serious restructuring of his total psyche earlier than escaping right into a pocket dimension, upgrading Hulk’s physique with know-how and turning him right into a starship the place Bruce is in cost, captaining the Hulk’s rage in his personal psychological manifestation of a ship’s bridge.
Whereas the spirit of Thor’s father Odin enters Bruce’s thoughts on this new challenge to get solutions, they’re much more weird than the Starship Hulk. Though Banner and Hulk had been resolved to work collectively to avoid wasting the world, the occasions of El Paso modified all the things. Moderately than Banner turning into the Hulk, one thing modified inside Banner the place he was infecting these close to him with gamma radiation, giving them Hulk-like rage of their very own. To make issues worse, Bruce was the one who killed the 17 in El Paso as an alternative of the Hulk, turning into helpless as one thing new and much darker took over his physique. Whereas that is what apparently motivated Banner to construct the brand new Starship Hulk type to maintain this mysterious darkness underneath management, Thor #25 ends with one more giant twist: some a part of Banner thinks he is in a simulation, not understanding that he is truly experiencing actuality. The problem is written by Donny Cates with artwork by Martin Cóccolo, because the Banner of Conflict occasion’s subsequent chapter.
Whereas this might both be referencing Hulk or this new darkish power inside Banner, neither is nice because it pertains to the arrival of Tony Stark in a Celestial-sized and equally highly effective Iron Man armor. Contemplating the high-tech helmet Hulk has been carrying, it may very well be a part of an ongoing facade the place a part of him has been led to assume he is in a digital surroundings. As such, he won’t maintain again towards Iron Man (or Thor for that matter), one thing that has by no means been the Hulk’s robust go well with to start with. It also needs to be famous that the means by which Banner restructured his psyche concerned highly effective magic, an unusual observe for a scientist like Banner which has mystified each Physician Unusual and now Odin himself.
The truth that Banner turning Hulk right into a spaceship will quickly be the least attention-grabbing factor about his new type is astounding. It appears as if a mix of science, magic and a fragile wall of deception have all been used to manage the Hulk. How far will the Jade Large go if he thinks he is in a digital house presumedly devoid of penalties? This is to hoping the precise nature of the Hulk’s new type might be fleshed out extra in his personal collection past this shocking new challenge of Marvel’s Thor.
