The finale of a Indestructible Hulk’s “Agent of T. I. M. E.” story arc is here. The question now is, is it as epic as the final pages of last issue would lead you to believe it should be?
I’ll say this upfront, I’m not the biggest fan of time travel stories these days. I feel there have been entirely too many of them in superhero comics recently. That said though, Mark Waid may have just brought “Agent of T. I. M. E.” To an Incredible place.
Last month it was the Wild West. And dinosaurs. This month, the fate of Camelot hangs in the balance. What does that mean for Hulk and the Bannerbot? Nothing major. Only that they have to deal with the Black Knight, Merlin and King Arthur. And a new Chronarchist. Simple, right?
Who’s ready to follow the Hulk as he goes gallivanting through time? Well, ready or not, that’s what’s happening, and if you don’t see the potential for awesome in that, then you aren’t looking closely enough.
Bruce Banner says it best; this is a jackhammer solution to a thumbtack problem. But let’s be real here, after ten issues of this series we should all have the utmost confidence that Mark Waid will make this a very fun ride.
Taking a fresh-eyed look at the cover of this issue after having actually read it, you will realize what a beautiful and frankly brilliant image it really is.
I’m going to just admit we talk a lot about DC this episode but that’s not a problem since we make up for it by discussing Age of Ultron and its potential fallout, Indestructible Hulk and more.
