Marvel’s the Hulk is all about change, and this August the green goliath’s Hulk comic series is getting some change – in the writing department. Series writer Mark Waid is stepping aside and the series will be piloted by Nova and Deadpool writer Gerry Duggan, with series artist Mark Bagley staying on board for what the new scribe says will have “big, big action.”
This August’s Hulk #5 begins Duggan and Bagley’s first arc together, titled “The Omega Hulk.” This arc will see Banner/Hulk hunting down the other men and women in the Marvel U who, like him, have special powers as a result of gamma radiation. Duggan promises that every character with Hulk in their name will play a role in his expansive arc, and will result in a new status quo for the Hulk and his associated characters.
In an exclusive first interview, Newsarama spoke with Duggan by phone about Hulk, transitioning from Mark Waid’s current run, as well as the big science ideas he has planned for the green goliath. SOURCE: CHRIS ARRANT, NEWSARAMA
HULK #5 by GARY FRANK
The events of Original Sin with Hulk versus Iron Man and the murder mystery of ‘who shot Banner?’ will leave both Hulk and Bruce very changed. The storyline is called ‘The Omega Hulk'. It’s going to run eight to ten issues, and at the end of it there will be a new status quo for many of the characters. Part of this is going right back to the beginning; I think the thing that always concerned Banner, and a lot of other people in the Marvel Universe, is the proliferation of gamma-irradiated powers to people and gamma weapons. Hulk’s aim in ‘The Omega Hulk’ is to take some of them off the board.
SHE-HULK WILL BE INVOLVED...
