Format: Paperback
After reading Planet Hulk and World War Hulk, I picked up this book to see what happened to Skaar, the son of the Hulk. The previous stories were very interesting and I was looking forward to seeing what kind of powers the son of the Hulk would have and how he would interact with his father who is now de-powered and can no longer turn into the Hulk that we all know and love.

I was surprised to find out that he wanted to kill his father and that he essentially blamed him for what happened to his home planet, however that seems to be everyone's response to Banner or the Hulk, just blame him for anything that's wrong in your life even if you aren't really sure that he ACTUALLY caused it or not.

What's even stranger is that Banner seems perfectly okay with the fact that his own son wants to kill him, and is actually TRAINING HIM to kill him when he finally turns back into the Hulk.

What's even stranger STILL is that this comic seems to break the 4th Wall. All the big brains of the Marvel Universe tell Banner that he's gamma free and there is no chance that he'll ever turn into the Hulk again, but Bruce says "Yeah I've heard that before," and "He'll come back, he always comes back." Which is something we all know, since you can't have a book called the Hulk without the Hulk in it. It's like the writers are just whispering to the readers and are saying, "Don't' worry, we'll bring the Hulk back, we just wanna tie up a few loose ends first, just hang in there for like 10 or 15 issues and the Hulk'll be back."

It was pretty cool to see Bruce and Wolverine watching their sons beat the crap outta each other and taking bids on who will win, both claiming the other's offspring is crazier than their own.

All in all the story wasn't too horrible. The artwork was kinda up and down, it wasn't a total waste of time. Just don't pay full price for it, it's not worth the $16.00 cover price.
