I was really looking forward to this fight between Thor and (Red) Hulk and it just turns out to be “okay”. Personally, I think Jeff Loeb should keep the fighting between monsters. It’s just more spectacular that way. Sure, Thor’s a heavy hitter – even a god – but once you take away Mjolnir, he’s pretty much dead in the water.
And that happens way too quickly here.
Even weirder is the how the fight ascends into space. Now, I can see Hulk defying some universal laws of physics, but come on, he holds his breath all the way to the moon and back?! This is just a little too over the top – even for me. But I’ll admit, the kicking of Thor’s helmet is hilarious and one that will be long remembered.
I don’t know about you guys, but when I read the conversation between Green Hulk and Abomination it reminded me of the Dinobots talking in Transformers. Anyone else get that vibe? (Grade: C)
