Bruce Banner is now returning as Hulk for a new start, and this time, he is incredible and immortal.
The Immortal Hulk will be launching by May from Al Ewing and Joe Bennett. This series will follow up Hulk’s return to the pages of Avengers: No Surrender.
“Okay – to begin with, the title character is Bruce Banner, and Bruce Banner is the Immortal Hulk, the World’s Mightiest Mortal, the Green Goliath, the Strongest One There Is, et cetera, et cetera,” Ewing had said.
“A lot of people have been a little wary that we’re actually bringing him back for keeps this time, so I figure this is as good a place as any to confirm that yes, this is Banner, he’s back, he’s got an ongoing solo series and he’s not going to die anytime again soon. In fact, that’s the point.”
“To answer another question that’s going to be right at the top of people’s minds – yes, this is spinning out of No Surrender, and obviously we hope you’re reading that. However, you do not need to have read No Surrender – or any other comic ever published by Marvel or anyone else – to enjoy Immortal Hulk. We take care of all the hows, and whys and wherefores of Hulk’s various resurrections in No Surrender Episode 10, which I believe is Avengers #684 – that has a special additional 10-page prologue story by Joe and me where will deal with all of that. And then we’re free to go into Immortal Hulk with all those questions answered and without any baggage. That was very important to me – to be able to make that promise, from me to you that you do not need to read a single another comic to enjoy Immortal Hulk #1. Retailers – there’s nothing else your customers will need. Readers – I welcome you with open arms. We want every Hulk fan, old and new, to experience this.”
The Immortal Hulk will be the latest series which was announced as Marvel’s “Fresh Start,” and Marvel had announced the relaunches of Avengers, Thor, Black Panther, and Venom and a new miniseries for Multiple Man and Cosmic Ghost Rider.
The Immortal Hulk #1 will be on sale by May.
