Immortal Hulk: Great Power is a one shot book that was released February 5th 2020. As I pull the Immortal Hulk from my local comic book shop, this was in my pulls for the week and I really had no idea what this was about. Going into this blind probably made it a little bit more enjoyable for me as the Immortal Hulk book is a bit more serious of a book and this was a light hearted change of pace.
The concept of this book is what happens if Spider-Man were to gain the powers of the Hulk. Without going into the plot itself Taylor does a fine job telling a story from start to end. It has a lot to do with the relationship between Peter Parker and Bruce Banner (or for those who don’t know Spider-Man and the Hulk). It was cool seeing the Hulk do some web slinging, and how he would break the walls off buildings as he sticks to them.
This also has two other pretty interesting cameos in it with Loki and Fantastic Four. Loki causes the mischief that transfers the Hulk’s powers to Spider-Man. The Fantastic Four are brought in to help as the Spider-Hulk is running around town. This leads to a pretty epic fight between the Thing and Spider-Hulk.
The art in this book is fantastic. It’s what you should expect in a book released from the big two, but really puts together this book. I am sure this is the type of book an artist has to love doing as its something you don’t see all the time, and get to do a lot of cool details.
WILL THIS BE ADDED TO THE PULL LIST: While this book is a one shot, I would recommend looking into the Immortal Hulk by Al Ewing. Also, it looks like Jeff Lemire is also doing another Immortal Hulk one shot in April called Immortal Hulk: The Threshing Place #1, which will be worth a look as Jeff Lemire is one of the top writers out right now. If they make more of these One Shots I will probably be sure to grab them.
SHOULD I READ THIS: This book is fun. I dont think it’s for everyone, but if you like weird combos / team up superhero books this is a good one to check out.
