New Evidence Supports Red Hulk Theory

SPOILER WARNING: Spoilers for HULK #6 below!


My Red Hulk theory got a real shot in the arm with this weeks HULK #6 featuring Green Hulk's showdown with Red Hulk, as Thor and A-Bomb stand by on the sidelines. Hulk ultimately wears out "Rulk" (ugh...really?!?) and knocks him out. Green Hulk leaves, A-bomb reverts to Rick, and tries to shout out Red Hulk's identity to the receding figure, before being stopped by none other than Doc Samson:


Then General Ross shows up to chime in as well, eliminating two suspects at once:

Finally, a telling comment from Red Hulk:


Exactly what an arrogant military thug with an abiding contempt for a milksop scientist might say upon a reunion with said milksop's emerald alter-ego. Glenn Talbot is the Red Hulk. You know I'm right.

I think you are right. But there's no call for Doc Samson to be written so far out of character! Ugh. I hate this title. I wish everybody else would stop liking it so much. You're only encouraging Loeb to write more of this crap.

You're right and that comic was totally kickass. Later to the haters.

You also forgot to mention that the madder Red Hulk gets, the HOTTER he gets. That's a big clue, I think, since Talbot supposedly died in a volcano.

I said once, Red Hulk is Ares. Quesada said that, Nuff' Said. : )

Red Hulk is Ares? Then what's Ares doing at the end of issue #5?

Insulting Namor and then not getting his punk ass beaten?

This book is so damned stupid. But hey, at least its not Loeb's Ultimates...

*shudder*

My kid loves it. This is definitely more his comic than mine, but its okay. Loeb's Ultimates is awful, tho.

Seriously, what was the build up with World War Hulk if they're just going to disregard continuity again?

Yeah but there is still no explanation for Doc Samson's shirt being all torn and stuff.

i actually think its Talbots brother "Grey" from the Gamma Group...the retinal scan would have identified him and in wikipedia it talks about how he used to get beaten up all the time by his older brother driving him crazy....may explain the "rage" factor?
