‘Hulk Vs Thor: Banner Of War’ Smashes Marvel Giants In May
by Tony Thornley
They’re two of Marvel’s most titanic (and popular characters), and in May, they’re going to collide in a massive story that will physically and emotionally shake the Marvel Universe to its core.
Kicking off with April’s Hulk Vs Thor: Banner of War Alpha, the story will continue across four issues of the two heroes’ solo series. It’s a confrontation that’s happened before and will happen again, but not like this. From writer Donny Cates and artist Martin Coccolo, this confrontation is one for the pages of history books.
Check out the newly revealed covers for the event, as well as the solicits for several of the story’s tie-ins:
In May’s Thor #25, part two of “Banner of War,” Banner’s newfound control of his rage is prolonging the fight more than Thor expected, and with Banner holding his own, Thor must get creative. Odin’s breakthrough look into Banner’s psyche seems to slow the violence, but will it be enough?
Later that month in Hulk #7, part three of “Banner of War,” Iron Man interrupts a pivotal moment of Hulk and Thor’s battle to settle a score. Equipped with new “Celestial Hulkbuster” armor of his own design, Tony is convinced that he can ensure Thor’s victory and Hulk’s capture. But sometimes what you don’t know really can hurt you…
Be sure to pick up the Alpha issue when it hits stands April 27th!
