Joe Bennett and Al Ewing’s run on The Immortal Hulk is about to end with just three issues left in the series. The reinvention of the Hulk’s origins, its mythos, and what demise means to him has catalyzed a range of new concepts and powers to the Marvel Universe. In some way or the other, the Hulk has been powerful than all his versions before; thanks to The Immortal Hulk. In this regard, these are the top 5 reasons why Marvel should use The Immortal Hulk story for its solo Hulk films –
He Is Undefeatable
The former and most prominent upgrade to the Hulk origin and mythos has derived from the Immortal version of the name. Undoubtedly he is immortal. While initially, Bruce Banner used to get killed during the day and restored as the Hulk at night, there has been ways where there remained no surefire way to defeat or kill the Hulk. Precisely, the Hulk has been dismembered and got completely evaporated by cosmic energy. However, he still managed to show up again each and every single time.
The Devil Hulk Is The Best
Out of all the Hulk personalities, the Devil Hulk looked the most prominent one. He is devious, smart, ruthless, intelligent, and above all, he has a complete control over the Hulk’s powers. With that being said, the Devil Hulk’s vision and drive were the major forces behind his quest to destroy the humans. However, at the same time, he is quite protective about saving other Hulk personas as well.
The Communication Between The Hulks
There existed a fine line of communication and a level of understanding between all the Hulk personalities unless the manipulations of the Leader and Xemnu showed up. With that said, it was the Devil Hulk who was in charge along with Bruce Banner, Joe Fixit, and the Savage Hulk as the side kicks. The most prominent sequence came when the Leader infiltrated Bruce Banner’s mindscape into the famous World-Breaker Hulk.
The Hulk Managed To Overcome His Weakness
The Immortal Hulk highlighted the Hulk’s weakness to cosmic radiation. The power of gamma has been unstoppable in the past. And in this regard, cosmic radiation has become his Kryptonite. With that being said, it was Henry Gyrich who exploited this side by aligning the U-Foes with X-Rays on the Hulk. Moreover, Joe Fixit managed to re-emerge as a red/green Hulk hybrid. As a result, the Hulk’s weakness to cosmic radiation is no longer there.
The Hulk Controls His Physiology
Last but not least, in The Immortal Hulk, the Hulk’s greatest ability is the fact that he could control his mind completely. He somehow managed to take on grotesque new forms and shapes and that is how he managed to unite with his body after getting divided into parts. In this regard, as far as the future of Marvel films is concerned, this version of the Hulk could manage to kill every other hero on Earth and even destroy the Metatron as well.
