I decided to pick up a few of the World War Hulk comics after reading that Joe Carnahan wants to do a World War Hulk Movie. I had to choose between the actual World War Hulk books or World War Hulk: X-Men. I picked up the later because I was hoping to get a glimpse of my second favourite Marvel character, Gambit. Sadly, he did not appear in the issue… At least, I wasn’t expecting to see the Green Goliath transform back into Bruce Banner!
In 2007, three issues were released for the X-Men World War Hulk mini-series. The story was written by Christos Gage and drawn by Andera Di Vito. The duo also worked together for Civil War: House of M mini-series in 2005. I really like Di Vito’s drawing style. It’s very cartoonish. Of course, the occasional scene is sometimes a bit sketchy, but overall the art work is amazing. Laura Villari does great work colouring the panels as well!
In World War Hulk: X-Men, the Green Goliath seeks out Professor Xavier. The Worldbreaker a.k.a. Green Scar a.k.a. the Hulk wants to know whether Xavier would have voted against his exile from Earth. Yet, the X-Men do not trust the Incredible Hulk. They believe the Green Scar wants to kill Professor Xavier! This means that for three whole comic books, you get to see the Hulk fight almost all the top X-Men! I’m surprise how witty the Incredible Hulk is! I actually chuckled a few times while reading the books.
I really don’t have much negative things to say about the World War Hulk: X-Men mini-series. The art is good, the story is really fun but I guess the ending is a bit disappointing…
