    It wouldn't be good if Hulk beats Thor again, given that he has the OF, but i imagine he wont this time, in fact i suspect no one will get KO'd this time around unlike last time, also looks like Betty is there fighting alongside him.

    Some people were VERY upset, i remember them harassing Ewing on twitter for a while, to the point where he was getting pretty fed up with it all.

    Don’t know what issue Bennett is on at this point, but this Act is basically Hulk at his absolute lowest (both physically and mentally) so I wouldn’t really be too bothered if he gets taken down. I don’t expect him too though, Thing kicking his ass will probably be the big physical fight loss Hulk needed to start getting his act together.

    Well, the canon Broly powers hasn't shown to destroy him. The version of Broly is just like the hulk but his fire power is insane. I just don't like how Hulk got destroyed to dust.

    The SKTCHD AWRDS: The Comics of 2020

    The Leader Award: Immortal Hulk

    I would say that, if you polled the broader world of comic critics, the most well-liked ongoing series would be Immortal Hulk, and I donít imagine it would be particularly close. Itís been going for just over two years now Ė which we honestly donít talk about enough, as that means weíve gotten 41 issues (as well as several one-shots tying in to some degree) Ė and almost since it debuted Iíd say it was Marvelís most beloved book. For good reason: itís absolutely incredible, with Al Ewing and Joe Bennett turning a solid start into a modern classic. Thatís why itís the leader here, because thatís what it is for Marvelís line.

    But also, if anything defined 2020 for the series it was the ascent of The Leader as the man behind the curtain, the one who was pulling Bannerís strings and making things bad for him. The pinnacle of the book for me this year Ė because Iím a mad man, as Iíve largely been the only one Iíve seen tout this issue as much Ė was #34, which laid out The Leaderís life and how he got from where he started to where he is now, running the Hulkís life and dominating the world of gamma in the way few have. Thatís been a fascinating wrinkle to add to the mix, because itís given us a third act turn that, in some ways, set the tone for the totality of the run.

    Because my awards know no bounds, just like The Leader in Bannerís head, I do want to tout one other leader-related angle: the fact that Immortal Hulk has become a brand unto itself. The concept works across creative teams Ė Jeff Lemire and Mike Del Mundo did work in Immortal Hulk: The Threshing Place and Declan Shalveyís going to blow people away with Immortal Hulk: Flatline Ė and connected titles, whether youíre talking Immortal She-Hulk or King in Black: Immortal Hulk. Itís a transmutable idea, one that can be applied elsewhere with little magic rubbing off, at all. Itís a heck of a thing, but representative of how the idea behind Immortal Hulk is so solid at the core it translates no matter where you put it.

    The SKTCHD AWRDS: The Creators of 2020

    The Writer of the Year Award: Al Ewing (Immortal Hulk, Guardians of the Galaxy, S.W.O.R.D., We Only Find Them When Theyíre Dead)

    I might have shown my hand earlier, as I touted Al Ewing in my write-up for Christopher Cantwell, suggesting the virtual certainty of the writerís inclusion on this list. But what you might not have realized is the award it indicated he might take, as thatís right everyone! Al Ewing is my writer of the year!

    Itís a funny award to give to someone who was already one of the best in the business. Itís not like Ewing ďgot betterĒ since last year, with that improvement leading him to this apex. Itís that heís now in a position to seemingly define the titles he wants to take on and the corners he wants to own, allowing him to find better fits for his style and ideas that maximize his talents. Al Ewing in 2020 is like a great young athlete who is waiting for their chance to show what they have even though we already knew they were elite in limited time. In 2020, Ewing was given every opportunity to succeed, and instead of just doing that, he thrived.

    Just look at the list of titles I listed above. His year was so tremendous that I didnít even bother to list Empyre, the event comic he co-wrote with Dan Slott, despite the fact it was fairly well liked! But the other titles he worked on were more representative of his strengths, as Immortal Hulk approached its endgame by getting into the meat of its core story with the Leader ascendant, Guardians of the Galaxy tore down and rebuilt some of its key elements, S.W.O.R.D. basically reinvented everything about its identity with a glorious retrofitting onto the current X-Mythos, and We Only Find Them When Theyíre Dead was basically Ewing unfiltered to the max, which is saying something.

    Thatís a lot, and those are all big, sprawling stories on top of it. But the thing that amazes me about Ewing is no matter if youíre talking space gods or internal battles within a Marvel legend, the scribe never loses the characters at the center of them. To be so big and so small at the same time is a tough balance, but Ewing makes it look easy. Even the cosmic scale is character driven, and itís for that reason you canít help but invest yourself in the stories he writes. Theyíre built on majesty and empathy in equal measures, making us care as our jaws drop.

    The question becomes ďwhatís next?Ē for Ewing, as you could say heís gotten to the point that heís arguably Marvelís strongest writer, even possibly out-Hickman-ing Hickman with S.W.O.R.D. #1 (I say that with much love to Hickman, who I clearly have an affinity for). Heís hit a pinnacle for writers in his line of work. Where do you go when youíre already at the top?

    If Ewingís proven anything in his rise to that position, the answer is clearly, ďwherever he wants.Ē Whether itís more of the same or something completely different, Iím here for whatever Ewing has on deck for us in 2021.

    True, but that isn't canon Broly in the pic. Plus, I still think Hulk would win no matter the version of Broly he faces. I do not agree with this video in how easily Broly wins in the end. Even as a Dragon Ball fan, this is one thing I detest about the Dragon Ball Fandom their desire to have their characters essentially crush with ease every opponent from another property. The power-level pissing contest among Dragon Ball fans versus those of other fandoms can get right down disgusting.

    It’s great seeing all the well deserved love for Ewing.

    I had read/in an a interview he’d like to join the queue for Dr Strange at some point after Immortal Hulk. If he can make Hulk this batshit and HUGE in scope, just imagine what he could do with the sorceror supreme!

    A valid point. He did something I thought impossible; make Hulk greater than the character has arguably ever been.

    Should be interesting for Betty and Jennifer to meet again considering the changes they've both gone through.

    Is that Jen on the bottom left? She looks a lot more normal than she did the last time she appeared in the book.

    I'm guessing Carol and Robbie are on the left? Or maybe it's all the girls on the left side with Betty?

    Oh, yeah, it was glorious. I so hard especially when one takes into account the fact that for decades Hulk has been declared one of the most powerful characters in all of comics (in terms of pure strength and having no upper limit to his power increase when he goes into a self-feeding rage-loop).

    Yea it's Jen, Bennett changed her design from how he drew her in Immortal Hulk 7, now she looks more like an actual buff She-Hulk than just a Hulk with a wig, you can go to page 143 of this thread to check it out, he has the Avengers all assemble to fight the Hulk and you can see her much more clearly.

    I think Betty is fighting She-Hulk and Carol to the left, dunno if Robbie is around he was missing from the Avengers assemble line up page.
