Hulk #33 Review by (June 1, 2022)

Review: A very evocative issue, first with General Ross among the old military craft, reminding us that he is an accomplished officer in the US Army. And then the sinister fog rolls in and we can almost choke on the dust along with Rulk as the ghastly Black Fog attacks from all sides. And the story is bookended by the Norrak’s attack on Omegex and their failure and extinction. It will get here soon enough. Fine issue.

Comments: Zero/One and Black Fog return in issue #37. Omegex arrives in issue #39 after a brief flyover in #35.


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Hulk #33 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

In deep space, the last of the Norrak race spy Omegex traveling through the stars and determine to destroy it to prevent it from reaching Earth….

In the truck shielded from the Thunderbolt’s sensors, LMDs Annie and Gus try to remove the mines implanted in the Red Hulk’s brain by General Fortean; it doesn’t work as Rulk’s antibodies destroy their seekers. They head to a place in the Mojave Desert where decommissioned aircraft have been dumped, many of which Ross is familiar with, as Gus had hoped to learn something of their history from Rulk. Then a fog rolls in—which is impossible in a desert but it’s the Black Fog, dispatched to destroy Red Hulk by Zero/One. The monster moves around in the fog, attacking Red Hulk from behind several times, inflicting damage with his sword and knife. Zero/One and Jacob Feinman watch remotely as Rulk tries to escape with the LMDs but Black Fog slices Chuck in half vertically. Rulk hurls a plane at Fog and knocks him down. Black Fog is transported into the sky where it encounters the Thunderbolt, coming as it has detected Rulk’s signature once he left the shielded truck. Black Fog fires on the craft and then vanishes from view. Rulk and Annie return to the truck to find Gus sliced in half horizontally; the dying LMD has a capsule containing a virus that should work against the nanites in Rulk’s brain and allow him to sleep. Gus dies and dissolves into dust as all the Gamma Base LMDs are programmed to….

In their separate bases, General Fortean and Zero/One both realize that destroying Red Hulk is going to be a long process but they are determined to see it done….

Red Hulk wakes up after 48 hours asleep without changing. He then receives a call from Steve Rogers telling him he is needed for a mission in space….

The last of the Norrak, now dying, send out a final message that they have failed to stop Omegex and now nothing will prevent him from reaching Earth….
