Immortal Hulk #10 Review by (December 5, 2018)

Review: On a plot level not much happens: everybody goes to Hell. But that is a major leap in terms of theme and character for the title as we wonder what surreal experiences the cast will go through in upcoming issues. So to sum up the issue...more body horror with a skeletonized Hulk and a bifurcated Crusher Creel throwing punches, leading to a final page of the skeletonized Hulk's face glowing red with the fires of Hell. I'm shaking, how about you?

Comments: Inking credited to Ruy Jose, Le Beau Underwood, Rafael Fonteriz. The title character is from the Kabbalah, one of the Qliphoth, chaotic forces which are unleashed when one of the Sephiroth is not in balance with the others and ruled by Satan; for further information consult Wikipedia.


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Immortal Hulk #10 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

Gamma Flight is able to locate Hulk from his Gamma signature, the strange thing is...there are two identical signatures. Walter Langkowski invites Jackie McGee to join him and Puck as they head to New Mexico to find the Hulk....

Absorbing Man's soul is trapped in Hell, leaving him able to say only “I'm sorry.” over and over....

On Earth, the emaciated Hulk, drained of much of his energy, is facing Crusher Creel's mutilated body, the flesh of his upper torso ripped to either side with the fanged skull and spinal column standing up in the center, also mumbling it's sorry. Meanwhile, Bushwacker is a short distance away, aiming a sniper rifle (made from his own hand) at the Hulk, reporting this latest development to General Fortean at Shadow Base who advises him to wait for the shot. As Creel continues to absorb energy from Hulk with each blow, Hulk responds by ripping off the spinal column and swinging the skull like a weapon against its (former) owner. The Gamma Flight ship arrives with Langkowski calling to the Hulk to listen. Bushwacker takes the shot, a cyanide hollow-point bullet hitting Hulk in the eye. Hulk, assuming Langkowski shot him, smashes the craft to bits. Hulk pursues the diminished Creel to the site of the original bomb test, pausing briefly to be shot by Puck. Creel absorbs radiation from the soil and is able to open the “Green Door.” It glows brightly then subsides leaving them all in a grim wasteland with an evil red sky. Asked where they are, Hulk replies, “Welcome to Hell.”
