Marvel Announces Brand new ‘Planet Hulk’ Series
It is undeniably one of the most important and memorable stories from the iconic Marvel hero, and it will receive a brand new follow-up, as Marvel has announced that they are releasing brand new Planet Hulk series.
There are few Marvel characters that are so entrenched within the lore of the Marvel Universe as much as Bruce Banner; a hero who is intertwined with the company as one of its premiere creations and containing on as one of its premiere characters for its entire existence.
He has been the subject of a plethora of stories that all examine just what makes Banner the intriguing, interesting, and unpredictable Marvel hero that has routinely toed the line and continuously established himself as a cornerstone of the comic book universe.
Yet, with all the tremendous stories that he has been the centerpiece of, one of the absolute coolest is the Planet Hulk storyline; one that will be returning in a certain way, as Marvel has officially announced a brand new Planet Hulk series!
The news first arrived via a press release from Marvel.com that stated that famed comic book writer, Greg Pak would be returning to the same title that he crafted all the way back in 2006, to bring forth a brand new Planet Hulk storyline that takes the iconic hero further than he has ever gone.
The press release states that “this November, Pak will return to this storyline in Planet Hulk: Worldbreaker!” continuing to state, “This five-issue limited series will take place a thousand years into the future and present a shocking expansion and culmination of the mythos of Sakaar.”
For fans familiar with the work Pak first orchestrated in Planey Hulk, you will be familiar with the planet of Sakaar and why it is so important to the character of Hulk; as it was the planet that housed Hulk following his exile from Earth at the hands of the Illuminati.
The story was the precursor to World War Hulk, and with Pak taking that original story- and the planet of Sakaar- that far into the future should be an immensely compelling story that we cannot wait to read.
