The last teaser of the week from Marvel for its Fear Itself panel at San Diego Comic Con.

What does the lack of special characters mean for the Hulk?

So far, the previous four images reveal the phrases:


The other images had the word Defender buried in the text, this one has Offender instead.

  1. It means that he gets replaced by a red-skinned guy with the same powers that used to be a villain….

    Wait a minute…sorry, that’s Hal Jordan not Bruce Banner. Or is it?

    Anyway, teasers aside, if this means a return of The Defenders then I would be one very excited old fanboy. I have more Defenders issues in my old collection than Avengers. I especially miss the very odd combination of the “original” Defenders (Silver Surfer, Hulk, Namor and Doctor Strange). But apparently there’s some kinda weird curse that would destroy the world should the “original” group ever get back together or somesuch thing.

    • I’d love a new Defenders book, Moon Knight can drop in occasionally too. I’d also like to see a new Champions book too.

  2. Silver Surfer came a little later… pretty sure Herbe Trimpe drew the trio together either in a Hulk or Avengers comic. I bought the first “Marvel Feature” and was hooked! They have done HORRIBLE things and truly WONDERFUL things over these years. Nighthawk was always my favorite and Valkyrie was a nice touch. But, the “Big Three” and Silver Surfer are the core of the Defenders! Imagine Avengers without Cap, Ironman, and Thor! I hope this works out. Subby and Hulk ALWAYS wanted to kick the crap out of each other… and Dr. Strange and Silver Surfer balanced things out nicely!

  3. ~wyntermute~ on

    This says things like “Son”, “Hunter”, “Nomad” and “Breaker of Worlds”…. Maybe this isn’t “Bruce-Hulk”… Maybe it’s “Skaar-Evil Hulk”, with a new haircut to fool us all?
