Issue Review

Opens with a (deliberately) inconclusive - but still very enjoyable - battle between Hulk and Thor. I feel Hulk should have won. I think the Hulk should hand Thor his balls on a plate, frankly. 8/10

  This was my favourite issue of the crossover so far. It's too bad the Hulk/Thor fight was interrupted though.

  Definitely the best of the crossover to date. The last 2 issues were definite improvements over the first several. I laughed out loud when Hulk spun Thor and screwed him into the sidewalk. Not realistic but entertaining!

  Thor has learned the hard way the "No Cape" rule!

  I'd have to think after an hour of wrestling with Thor that Hulk would be so mad.

  I give 5 stars for the Hulk/Thor standoff alone! Can't wait to see conclusion to this epic.

  Okay that was a ton of fun, and it was good to see them grow a brain between them all and figure out they were being used. Would have been a definite 5 star if they hadn't wimped out on the end of the Hulk/Thor fight.

  Well, that escalated quickly.

I'm with you all; I wanted to see more Hulk vs. Thor, for no other reason than to see them lower L.A. property values. Or, to at least piss off one guy there, I think his name is Sam Andreas or something like that.

Bonus: we get to really see Dormammu's endgame; rarely does a plan go this far up to this point. And it'll take two more issues to resolve this, too. This is probably the funnest arc so far in the Order.

4 stars; docked one star for the unresolved Hulk-Thor throwdown. But still, only a minor hiccup in this fantastic arc.

  Imagine being the people watching the Hulk and Thor fight when they got into their stalemate.
Honey, have they done anything yet?
No dear, they're still standing there.

  4 stars for Thor and Hulk settling their differences the old fashioned way...with a staring contest!!!

Cover Me - Great image of the boys roughhousing!!!

Kinky - Hulk screwing Thor into the sidewalk could've went in a whole other direction...

Splash - So nice, they show the image twice!!!

Splash II - It would've been better if all the guys were standing around Valkyrie!!!

Wax Off - I think the Surfer was really trying to keep Hawkeye off his board!!!

Blast From The Past - Good to see Asti again!!!

The Gang's All Here - All that last panel needed was Irving Forbush!!!

'Nuff Said - "But, Clint, you're just as dumb as ever!"-Wise Ol' Swordsman
