Indestructible Hulk #3 Review by (February 26, 2019)

Review: Nice done-in-one story (you know, the original kind) is a bit of an echo of issue #1 with Hulk facing a boasting megalomaniac with a supersuit and crunching it to bits. The real interest of the issue is the introductions of Banner's new team, each of whom has a reason for wanting to work with the world's most volatile scientist. The groundwork is being laid for the bulk of this series and the new characters have a lot of potential.

Comments: “Marvel Now!”--Cover. The Quintronic Man first appeared in INCREDIBLE HULK #213. First appearances of Daman Veteri, Randall Jessup, Melinda Leucenstern, Patricia Wolman, and ROB.

Indestructible Hulk #3 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

SHIELD Director Maria Hill interviews a number of candidates applying to work with Bruce Banner, showing them pictures of the Hulk at his worst and asking them why they would risk that to work with Banner; the applicants' answers are varied and show great dedication to their work....

At a dilapidated house in a run-down part of town, black-clad AIM Agents seize a Professor Burke and force a helmet on him to shut out all outside sights and sounds. SHIELD Agents arrive to battle AIM but the baddies scoop up their prisoner and get away. Returning to AIM's volcano base in the South Pacific, they hand over to their leader, Colin Thirty-Three, their captive, who is unmasked as Bruce Banner, switched during the battle at Burke's home. After Hulk softens them up, more SHIELD Agents arrive and a full-scale battle breaks out. Thirty-Three, with some loyalists, rushes off to the labs to activate the Quintronic Man, a robot operated by five humans inside the giant framework; Burke was to be the last of the original operators but Thirty-Three will have to take his place. It should be noted that the other four are dead, their corpses having the right neural chemistry to run the monster machine. Hulk smashes it to pieces anyway....

As he recovers from the mission, Bruce Banner receives an update on the Quintronic Man from Maria Hill who also tells Bruce about his new team: Daman Veteri, Randall Jessup, Melinda Leucenstern, and Patricia Wolman. He is also introduced to ROB (Recording Observation Bot), a floating orb designed to monitor everything Hulk/Banner does. Bruce rejects the idea, Hill tells him it is non-negotiable, Hulk fragments the thing with one punch....
