Hulk #11 Review by (August 20, 2019)

Review: Yes, I actually wrote “3-D printing a giant toilet.” And now that you're done giggling, blame the writer, Gerry Duggan. Anyway, Hulk, excuse me, Doc Green has outsmarted himself: he created a back up for his mind in an AI but now the AI considers itself the smarter one—and able to second guess Doc and override his wishes. It was nice to see Lyra again; I had almost forgotten how much fun this angry warrior woman was; she faces off nicely with Doc Green, the mild-mannered Hulk these days. Looking back to the 1960s, I never would have guessed that the big green guy in purple pants who wanted to smash everything would turn out to be so versatile in the hands of various writers, most notably Peter David and continuing to Greg Pak, Mark Waid, and now Gerry Duggan. No wonder he's a classic.

Comments: Lyra a/k/a the Savage She-Hulk was introduced in HULK: RAGING THUNDER and she played a major role in the WORLD WAR HULKS era.


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Hulk #11 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

Doc Green vows that there is one possible future which he cannot allow to happen: one in which the Red Hulk, Thunderbolt Ross, wins....

Doc Green and his assistants Daman Veteri and Randall Jessup have taken up residence in the abandoned Baxter Building where Daman and Randall have finally gotten the temporal gauntlet to work, sending a shackle ahead in time. Doc is unimpressed as he is 3-D printing a giant toilet to replace the one that was destroyed. While waiting for the shackle to reappear, Doc fills the guys in on what happened to Melinda Leucenstern (see issue #8). And now Doc Green is ready to hunt down his daughter from the future, Lyra....

Lyra is in Kansas, trying to stop a Roxxon fracking operation by smashing machines and chasing away workers. Doc Green arrives and they fight; he clamps the shackle onto her arm and she is drawn into a vortex back to her homeworld—except she calls out that it isn't as she vanishes. Doc heads back to the Baxter Building where his AI alter ego explains that he had Lyra teleported to a more uncomfortable place [and here we see Lyra fighting a giant tentacled monster] to neutralize her threat. Green AI tells him that Extremis is failing and Doc's intellect has begun to diminish so the AI is the one who needs to make the decisions. Doc discovers the AI was building a synthetic version of Bruce Banner as a fail-safe. Doc destroys the fake Banner and the AI departs to another body...

...which turns out to be a Life Model Decoy aboard the SHIELD Helicarrier....
