I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
When Black Bolt, Dr. Strange, Iron Man, and Mr. Fantastic trick Hulk into getting into a spaceship and then shoot him into space, none of them expect him to come back. They certainly don't expect him to land on a world where he becomes a slave, only to rise up and become its king. To have a wife, an unborn child, all of whom are destroyed when the ship they trapped him on explodes.
They assume the heroes did this, despite the fact that he knows they wouldn't. He refuses to entertain any other conclusion. And he desperately wants to break the men who broke him, who took away everything he had to live for, including the peace he had found in having a family.
And so, Hulk and his new compatriots, the Warbound, head to Earth to wreak vengeance on the world that had denied him, and spat him out on Sakaar. It's up to the heroes of Earth to defeat a Hulk who has never been angrier, and who wants to never stop making them pay. Can they defeat a monster who has taken on the identity of The Worldbreaker?
They must if any of them want to survive. If they want their world to survive. This was a pretty epic storyline, and I found myself wanting more when I got to the end.
It doesn't hurt that Black Bolt is one of the four that Hulk targets. He's made to fight to the death:
And he's muzzled to keep his powers at bay:
And it sets up hurt/comfort. I so need to find out if there are some hurt/comfort post WWH storylines out there...
Because part of one of my favorite tropes is done right here. Yay!
