The Rundown: Hulk discovers a society based around him and an even darker secret is discovered.
Bruce has become more integrated with the Hulk and continues to think back to his past and fear associated with it. Monolith decides to visit with him and show him the world that his actions and battles helped create. After she tells him about the creation of their world, he sees the role he played in it and wants to do something to help.
He also realizes that he is worshipped on the planet. Something that makes him uncomfortable as he finds himself being included in activities by the local who see him as a god. Unfortunately, there is a darkness beneath his new utopia that he is unaware of.
The Story: The story has some great moments with Bruce confronting his past and dealing with how it affects his present. The mystery within the story regarding what is happening to Bruce is interesting as well. Beyond that, the story felt too short. I read on waiting for something to happen, but it seemed to end abruptly and didn’t really give a sense of necessity to the arc.
The Art: Ottley delivers some impressive visuals in the past moments with Bruce and the history of the planet, but the story doesn’t really give him much to do visually beyond that to enhance the overall story.
