Hulk 2099 #2 Review by (February 15, 2010)
A truly horrible book that epitomizes the creative wasteland that was the mid-90's at Marvel. Poor artwork and awkward story. It doesn't help that the character is also very visually unappealing. Its only saving grace is a truly eye-catching cover by Kubert and Nowlan that was made into a large size retail poster as well. ~ Peter Kowalchick


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Hulk 2099 #2 Synopsis by Peter Kowalchick

The Hulk (2099) is fighting Draco who has fought with the Hulk's alter ego, John Eisenhart, in the past. John is trying to get out of Los Angeles and its powerful studio entertainment business. Draco is trying to take over the studio John works at called Lotusland. Draco ensnares Keisha, a studio executive rival to John, and the Hulk allows himself to be knocked out, unwittingly as Keisha is aligned with Draco in his bid to take over the studio and eventually Los Angeles.

The Hulk's ally Quirk is captured by Draco’s security but is freed by a group calling itself the Human Tribe, who wear primitive masks and use spears. The Hulk awakens a captive at Lotusland studios and is subject to the torture of the villainous Dr. Phil at the behest of Draco while many studio employees, including the brilliant virtual reality designer Zamora.

Draco is happy to control the Hulk and brags aloud of taking control of various city services. Draco attempts to virtually control the powerful Lotusland studios and finds his access denied by the powerful studio virtual reality system. The Hulk speaks to his fellow workers, convincing the employees and Zamora they will lose their souls if they don't revolt now. They revolt against the security team (who bear more than a passing resemblance to the Marvel Comics b-list villain known as the Melter) as the Hulk gets angry and breaks his bonds. A large security droid controlled by Draco attempts to restore order but is destroyed by the Hulk.

The Hulk fights Draco and gets madder and stronger until Draco strategically withdrawals. In his lair, he plots to take control of Lotusland and destroy the Hulk when a man who calls himself the Golden One appears and offers his help. He has beastly dog things with him.
