Both Hulk and Spider-Man have had their hands full during the Absolute Carnage event this year. It looks like The Immortal Hulk will be having some more adventures alongside the Web-Slinger as Marvel announced a new title featuring the hero today. Immortal Hulk: Great Power #1 will hit store shelves in January. It seems that Venom and Carnage are not the only entities that can switch hosts when the mood strikes them. The Hulkis positioned on the upcoming cover for the issue in Spider-Man’s costume. He’s swinging along on what looks to be some Gamma-radiated webs and he means business if that scowl is any indication of what’s coming next. Poor Spidey’s mask doesn’t even escape this whole thing unscathed. As one would expect, The Hulk is literally burning out of the costume’s seams.
The image looks a lot like Web of Spider-Man #70 from 1990 in fact. That issue was titled “Are You Ready for Spider-Hulk?” So this isn’t a completely new avenue for the company. But, it is a chance for the creators to explore what each character is with their powers and how those abilities actually factor into their personalities. What is Bruce Banner like if he doesn’t have the balancing act with The Hulk? In the same way, what does introducing such a rage-based persona do to everyone’s favorite Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man? Apparently, Immortal Hulk will let us get a glimpse of what that will be like.
