    Yes, and your screen name is an Uhura quote from Search for Spock.

    Now if you had tried to make a cricket joke, that would have been hard to follow.

    Look's like they're mostly behind the scenes shots, so on film he may not end up being quite so bright a shade of blue as he appears. Not that it matters either way since, as has been noted there are several Kree ethnic groups and I imagine there's as many shades of blue in their genome as we have shades of pinky brown.

    A bit more than that, Grey Hulk was:


    Which is a whole lot less sketchy compared to a 2,000 year old genie in love with a guy in this 30's in I Dream of Jeannie starting in 1965.

    Cricket jokes can be sticky wickets.

    The Gray Hulk did have a gentler side. The Night transformations, and later monopolization, allowed him space to grow emotionally, but Betty and the Gray Hulk did it, obviously Joe and Marlo had an ongoing relationship, but The Gray Hulk knocked up Betty.

    I think the government stole their baby that they tricked her into think ing was miscarried and what happened after that was eventually touched upon by a late 90s annual.

    Gerorge Perze art, Future Imperfect, we see a wasteland of spent whores... Concubines? OH! Betties! He called all his sex slaves Betty! But yes 80 years in the future (guessing, shut up.) the Maestro, an intelligent Hulk is the ruler of a lot of America after World War III, but yes we see the exhausted aftermath of a team of woman trying to pleasure the Hulk.

    Later in issue two, we see a Betty "rape" a young modern day Hulk who had had his neck broken by the Maestro, to become a more perfect house guest.

    Even a hulk penis going in is not larger than a baby coming out, and frankly if Gamma radiation is anything like steroids, Banners penis could shrink when the rest of him hulks out.

    However, the pounding motion might powder bones, and the incredibly high pressure semen might be able to cut through oak for a while, so it's really a question of how considerate the Hulk is feeling.

    Sometimes I think you are actually Garth Ennis in disguise.

    So, back to Agents of Shield, I don't think Glenn Talbot will be there because Hulk had sex with someone... Well, I hope not.





    ... Kinda.

    Glenn was a contender for the Red Hulk until the Rhulk's identity was finally unmasked as Thunderbolt Ross.

    But what if this time around he actually made the cut?

    (Anyone thinking of a weird version of the Bachelor, where the Bachelor is trying to weed out who is the Red Hulk from a bunch of middle aged desperate women and one big burgundy behemoth?)

    Naw, he's our Brodie.

    If anything Talbot will be like Sif, a way to reference the Avenger, without having to get them on the show. Perhaps they could tie the Blue Alien and the Hulk into the Super Soldier project. Rapid healing like that would be a useful thing for a Super Soldier.

    Isn't the Hulk already tied into the super-soldier project? I'm pretty sure it's mentioned in the film that Banner was experimenting with a sample of it, under the impression it was some cancer cure or some-such when he tested it on himself.

    Yes, as you can see from the screen grab below, the serum they use on Blonsky is labelled "Weapons Plus," which, in Grant Morrison's New X-Men was his attempt to tie Weapon X into the Super Solider Project. The "X" was never meant to be a letter, it was meant to be a Roman Numeral, showing that Wolverine was the 10th experiment in trying to create a super solider, as they started with homo-sapiens and expanded later on to homo-superior test subjects. The program was called "Weapons Plus."

    I doubt we'll see more mention of "Weapons Plus," as I'm not sure who owns the trademark to that. I didn't mean in my post that tying the Hulk into the Super Soldier program would be a new idea, I meant tying the Alien into it, through Talbot, would be.

    ^They covered a few bases. Vita-Ray, Stark Industries, and Weapons Plus.

    And of course "Dr. Reinstein" was the code name of Dr. Alexander Erskine.
