I don't read things that involve the Hulk often, but I had considered reading Planet Hulk. Sadly, the Wizard I purchased, turned out to be old, so by the time I went looking, Planet Hulk was already on issue 3 of 4. However, I was intruiged to see the likes of the Hulk and the Silver Surfer, being combatants on some poor mans War World (at least that is what it seems like). So my question is, how did the Hulk (and Silver Surfer for that matter) become stranded on this planet? And why aren't they dominating it? Hulk and Surfer are ridiculously powerful. I can't fathom many more humanoid beings beaing more powerful than those two.
 
I'm not reading it, but from what I understand 1. they're not dominating because something about the place they're at reduces their powers, and 2. Reed Richards finally decided to do something about Hulk to end his destructive ways, and exiled him by sending him into space
 
Nick Fury recruited the Hulk to destroy a rogue satellite that was threatening the Earth. So the Hulk went up into space and destroyed the satellite and when it was time for him to return Fury revealed that the whole thing was just a ploy to get the Hulk off the earth and Fury proceeded to send hulk drifting off into space with no general direction.

Hulk's ship managed to enter a wormhole that teleported him to another Galaxy where he crash landed on the Gladiator planet. Hulk was weakened by the portal and was captured by the planets military and now he is being forced to compete in gladitorial games for sport.

It hasn't been explained how Surfer was captured.

I really recommend reading this series. It's really good with lots of Hulk smash and the back issues shouldn't be too difficult to find.

It shouldn't be too hard to track down #s 92-94 (all the PH issues so far). #92 and, I think, #93 went into reprint. I don't think many retalers sold out of the last two issues anyway though. So now is a perfect time to catch up.

And I think you'll like it because there is great writing, and no decompression. We're three issues in but it feels like six issues in because so much happens in every issue.

I can not emphasize how good this book is enough. :up:
 
Wait, why in the hell would they want The Hulk off of earth? Did something happen that I missed? Did he go back to being the Savage Hulk? I thought he was in "professor" mode. You know, highly powerful yet intelligent. What would make him so violent, if he has Banners mind? And how come Hulk didn't just come back to earth on his own? Didn't Spidey throw Hulk into space (during his run as Cosmic Spidey), only for Hulk to return?
 
I guess it was finally "enough is enough"

Yet at the same time he's off doing stuff that has to deal with Anniliation. :down

Hulk rules, elija.

IIRC, Spidey flew up there and retrieved him, he didn't come down on his own. I could be wrong though...
 
I picked up issue #3 tonight. Great stuff! I'll have to track down the previous two episodes this week to see what I missed!

I've never been a regular Hulk reader... but this storyline has me hooked!
