Incredible Hulk #714 Review by (March 21, 2018)

Review: Well, I'm worried. We knew nothing good could come of this but we're leading up to the end of Amadeus Cho's tenure as the Hulk. He's not the first person who isn't as smart as he thinks he is (Tony Stark, are you listening?), with the bad Hulk out of the trunk and Amadeus locked away. Okay issue but no classic.

Comments: “Marvel Legacy.” Issue features a “Where is Wolverine?” medal on the cover, plus its special feature at the end of the issue, Ryan Stegman artist. Prince Phalkan previously appeared in TOTALLY AWESOME HULK #15-18; the Protectors, a team of Asian-American heroes, were from the same issues.

Incredible Hulk #714 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro
Image from Incredible Hulk #714

Returning from Sakaar, Hulk (Amadeus Cho) crash-lands his ship in Central Park; Thor Odinson makes his farewells and goes off in search of mead. Amadeus' sister Maddie Cho arrives on a flying disc and explains how everyone was worried about him since he disappeared. Amadeus explains that he has learned how to deal with his dark side (the Hulk in the trunk) by applying his intellect to difficult situations. Maddie notes that he is still in his Hulk form; Amadeus thinks that is who he is and goes to take a nap, the Amadeus locked in the trunk crying for help....

Later, there is a bridge collapsing on Staten Island; Spider-Man (Miles Morales) is trying desperately to hold it together with webbing. Hulk arrives, to everyone's horror, and offers to help. By calculating all of the engineering factors, Hulk makes four blows of varying severity and, having knocked out the damaged bits, the bridge is in no further danger. He is cheered as a hero...and then an alert comes in....

Phalkan of Seknarf Seven escapes from the prison satellite and steals a ship; Hulk contacts him and warns him to go back; the villain threatens to eat everyone in revenge. Jimmy Woo contacts Hulk but Amadeus is already assembling the Protectors. Ms Marvel (Kamala Khan) arrives too and everyone is surprised when Phalkan steps through a wormhole—Amadeus reveals that he gave the villain his location, and also called the news media to cover the epic battle. After a few preliminary punches, the Totally Awesome Hulk applies his strength to hurting Phalkan where it will cause the most damage and then the fight is over. Hulk's friends, watching from all over the world (including Black Panther in Wakanda), are shocked at this uncharacteristic behavior from Amadeus Cho. He challenges his enemies, saying “I'm coming for you...every last one!” And Amadeus, locked in the trunk cries, “Nooooooo!”

The crowd in Times Square watches the Hulk's challenge to his enemies on television; one of them is Wolverine, who says, “No way this ends well.”
