Even if Ewing wasn't planning on ending the one below all stuff by then, which it seems like it's building towards anyways, it seems like it wouldn't be hard for the next writer to just like, not intentionally kill the hulk at least once per issue, if they don't want to deal with it

The first time.

That makes it so much more satisfying when they try again and Hulk beats it like a baby seal.

I'm pretty sure the first time it was ever used it was against Smart Huilk who was like "lol cute" and then proceeded to de-escalate the situation, because he didn't want to fight anyway

It MIGHT have worked but considering how little he seemed to be worried about it, it didn't really make a strong impression other than looking really cool (Which is why anything comes back, see also; Venom)

It can always be undone. Could probably get an event out of it if you wanted. Another "rights of Banner against rights of everyone else on the planet" argument before you pull the trigger on a reality manipulator while Uatu stands in the background face palming.

This sentiment is probably the biggest problem I have with Big 2 comics

He does immediately threaten death to all who aren't pure-blooded Britons so it might be a tiny downgrade from the current government.

But does he threaten death by killing or death by letting them die? Not much difference if it's the latter.

No hes going to put them to the sword.

Im really enjpying Once & Future. Stories and myth as a product of collective thought is a theme I love. Especially how its done here where Arthur is so hosed up from the retellings of his story that hes lost a lot of himself.

Once & Future is the most Kieron Gillen story that has ever been and it definitely does start to drag (like I said, it's a Kieron Gillen story) but it's also definitely worth a look. The joke that Arthur's Britain was Celtic instead of Saxon is still the best one but it's just full of so many great moments and little references that I really hope it's doing well. The art is absolutely lovely as well.

If you're having a goof and I'm missing it, my apologies, but from context I think Rigged Death Trap meant Glorantha Heroquest, not the board game.

In the Glorantha setting - maybe best known from King of Dragon Pass and its sequel, though there was and is like a whole ttrpg system - you can perform a ritual known as heroquesting, where you re-enact stories about the gods, and by doing so become in some way the gods. If the god you are larping as is wounded in the story, you may die of their wounds. If the god comes out of the story with a neat sword, or a new wisdom, your larp sword might become a magic sword, or you might gain insight into an intractable problem. And, if you gently caress up the larp badly enough, you can change the myth. For everyone who has heard of it.

This is real bad if the myth involved something like how people learned to speak language, or make maps.

Yeah thats what I meant. The comic reminded me of Gloranthas Heroquesting since characters in the comic assume the roles of the stories by renacting their actions and taking on their traits, and not in a symbolic sense, same as in glorantha.

Though there is a lot of BROAWDSWOAD swinging in Once & Future so it has that in common with tbe board game.
