Totally Awesome Hulk #2 Review by (October 21, 2019)

Review: More comical action featuring a hero who can’t quite tell who the villain is. Charming plot and goofy dialogue by Greg Pak, solid art by Frank Cho (who really knows how to draw attractive women) equals a highly entertaining comic.

Comments: Letters page includes an essay from Greg Pak on his creation of Amadeus Cho, a request for a name for the letters column, and a few teases of upcoming plot developments.


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Totally Awesome Hulk #2 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

Lady Hellbender is trying to smash Hulk (Amadeus Cho) but he is dodging as he can’t bring himself to hit a lady (especially an attractive one)—then Lady H’s dinosaur steed chomps on Hulk’s head and shakes him around. Maddy Cho brings around the flying base and sprays the two combatants with a foam that quickly hardens. But now Lady Hellbender is atop the base, tearing the roof off. Spider-Man (Miles Morales) webs the craft but is pulled upward; She-Hulk grabs his ankle and heads up. The threat to his sister makes Hulk angry and he leaps up, seizes Lady Hellbender and slams her down to the ground….

Kenya, four months ago: After absorbing the energy from the nuclear meltdown, Hulk has been placed in a containment pod by Dr Monica Rappaccini as the big green guy battles the radiation mixing with his own. Iron Man is at a loss for how to help his old friend, while Black Panther suggests sacrificing Hulk to save fifty million Kenyans….

Hulk squares off with Lady Hellbender; She-Hulk intervenes and is knocked out of the way by the Monster Queen. Spidey does likewise but Hulk seizes him by the head. It is Maddy who can calm the Hulk into changing back to Amadeus. Lady H calls a truce with Maddy, pointing out that she was hunting a monster when Jen and Spidey attacked her. Some checking of instruments reveals to Maddy that there was something else in the area earlier. Lady H spots the shrunken monsters in the van and demands they be restored to their right size; she calls down her huge box-like ship Destromundo containing numerous captive monsters to be released in the gardens of Seknarf Nine; Maddy doesn’t trust her, thinking the Monster Queen is actually building an army. Then Lady H’s quarry appears: Fin Fang Foom. She challenges Amadeus to join her in battling it and he Hulks out and goes with her—to Maddy’s dismay….
