Mark Waid‘s new take on the Hulk is a little different. Now he’s an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.
“Banner’s a changed man. No more stooping under the weight of ‘woe is me,’ no longer bespectacled, no longer a fashion victim in purple,” explained Waid in an interview with Marvel.com. “For decades, Banner’s felt like he’s no more than the Hulk’s helpless puppet. Now Banner’s using Hulk to his own mysterious ends.”
It seems that Banner has fully weaponized the Hulk, and has joined S.H.I.E.L.D. According to a Marvel press release, the two “have become the strongest, smartest weapon alive.”
Indestructible Hulk drops this November as part of the Marvel Now! initiative.
