My enjoyment of The Incredible Hulk of late has been limited to the semi-recent movie starring Ed Norton which I really enjoyed, then again I enjoyed the Ang Lee Movie prior to that one. The nerd in me felt complete with the more recent of the two fitting in to the up and coming avengers storyline. Although recent news leads us to a new Bruce Banner without Ed Norton revisiting the role. The only other Hulk I have read in the past 2-3 years is Planet Hulk which happens to be fantastic and takes Hulk out of the context of earth and puts him on another planet conveniently partaking in slave keeping and gladiator style wars. Something Hulk was meant to do for years!
I digress, my point is I haven’t been reading much Hulk so I was really pleased to get the opportunity to watch Season 2 of The Incredible Hulk which introduced She Hulk. Much like my watching of The Super Hero Squad last week I was looking forward to sitting down and watching some cartoons, particularly something I would deem more ‘classic’ from Marvel.
The series really hits with a great first impression, during the 90′s the animation standards of our favourite comic heros went up a gear and this is no exception. With voice acting from Hulk actor Lou Ferrigno this Hulk adventure should be one of your favourite comic book DVD’s in your collection.
The storyline is great and you would consider to be classic hulk. Bruce Banner is still on the run from the military and caught up with his dual identity, but this time he has to deal with two new personas the Grey Hulk and the Dark Hulk.
As for villains the Leader, Doctor Doom and Abomination all play major roles and obtaining the Hulk’s power becomes an obsession with them.
If you are a Hulk fan or at least curious whether you should be, this is a fantastic entry point for you and a title worth picking up. Introducing She-Hulk is an added bonus and an enjoyable character in the mix. Along with award winning audio work on this 8 part series this is hard to beat.
