Indestructible Hulk #1 Review by (February 12, 2019)

Review: A new series, a new premise, a new creative team, and everything clicks. “Hulk, Agent of SHIELD” is a clever premise and this issue really sells it. The clever dialogue is another of Mark Waid's specialties and Leinel Yu is an offbeat choice, lending his very solid, very serious style to keep the matter from becoming too light. And it's always good to see the Mad Thinker get clobbered.

Comments: “Marvel Now!”--Cover. The Avengers versus X-Men event is said to have been “last month.”

Indestructible Hulk #1 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

At a diner in Manchester, Alabama, SHIELD Director Maria Hill enjoys a meal while she takes a call from Agent Phil Coulson explaining how they lost track of the Hulk; to Hill's surprise, Bruce Banner walks in and sits down at her table. He explains he has been giving thought to his legacy and doesn't want to be remembered only as the Hulk. Knowing that he will always be the Hulk, Banner wants to do good in the time he has left so he has a proposition for her: if SHIELD will provide him with a state-of-the-art lab and support, he will make Hulk available for their use. And so he is here, offering his help with the current situation: SHIELD is set to raid the Mad Thinker's hideout and Banner would like to audition for the job. They head out to the scene and when Banner isn't looking, Hill clobbers him with a plank....

Within his lair, the Mad Thinker sits, waiting to spring his trap on SHIELD and glorying in his superior intellect—and then the Hulk comes through the wall. As the villain recalculates the odds, Hulk smashes his robotic servants to junk. The Thinker, wearing a huge armored battle suit, unleashes blasts from a cannon based on Ultron's Quantum Molder, blasts designed to melt adamantium. Hulk seizes the cannons and points them upward, triggering a roof collapse and the shocked discovery by the Mad Thinker that Hulk's strength is incalculable...and then Hulk rips his suit apart. The building collapses into rubble, Thinker is arrested, and Banner pulls himself from the wreckage. Hill tells him he's hired and takes him off to sign the official paperwork....
