This is pretty much Fred Tatasciore doing Smart Hulk. We talked at D23 how in his mind he sees more of Banner's intellect within this Hulk and he plays that side of him. In the earlier shows he would do, Fred was doing Savage Hulk, and now he's the smarter, more heroic Hulk
The plot with the Leader and Skaar is HEY AN ONGOING PLOT! Something hating fanboys won't admit the show has. Hulk actually has a plan on dealing with Skaar. He's well aware on Skaar's dealings with the Leader, but he's planning to win Skaar over or Skaar will ultimately lead them to the Leader. Hulk being cunning and trying to one-up his attackers who would not expect this of him is cool.
Hulk's reaction to the Hulkbusters was actually very cool and interesting. Hulk does not resent Iron Man for doing it and on some level agrees with it.
Those are all good points, Vile. The way I see it, the MCU and DVDs like Planet Hulk are for teens & adults. But Marvel has to make something appropriate for young kids too.
That doesn't mean adults can't look past the corny elements (mainly A-bomb's constant shenanigans) to see the things you mentioned. The fact that viewers are getting to see an older, Professor-like Hulk's thoughts and feelings is a big deal.
