Good in that Hulk will be at the center of the MU, and Cates style of storytelling works well with events. Bad in that, well, Cates style of storytelling prioritizes spectacle over substance, and events only worsen that.
    Yep even early on Marvel pressured him to end it in an event, but he refused, luckily he had the final say in it. With Cates obviously it's gonna end in an event... that isn't even a question, still i wont mind that with Cates because the whole run will likely be a giant spectacle, like people are not prepared to experience the shift from Ewing to Cates, it's gonna be jarring guys, you are gonna experience a completely different run. Anyway i am personally not a big fan of Cates, i was not happy that he is doing Hulk, with that said it was about time we had a Hulk centered event, there are so many gamma related characters and lore in the universe now it would be quite a shame if Marvel didn't at least showcase it, as long as Cates tries to make it fun i guess i will take it. As i said i already prepared myself to expect a giant spectacle when it comes to this run, all flash no real substance, my only hope is that Cates does not retcon or damage characterization irreversibly or goes back to status quo which he seems to be kinda doing although on twitter he claimed that he is not, so we will see....

    Man Iím kinda hoping 49 isnít just twenty pages of prose, but thereís so much to wrap up with only two issues to go I can see why Ewing might be going that route.

    Hulk was briefly involved in the recent symbiote events, and the Carnage crossover issue was kind of interesting in that it really kind of established the Hulk dynamic for a good chunk of his run and also gave a look at how the Hulks appeared in the mindscape-Savage Hulk/Big guy in his regular form, but Joe having be Banner with sunglasses, mustache and tacky fashion sense instead of the Grey form, and Devil basically how he appeared in the Jenkins issues (apart from the 'thin' version that John Romita Jr. did) as a big yellow reptilian. Banner in his usual scientist look etc.

    Well if we're repeating cycles with Cates as well (Ewing pretty much hit all of them during his run) then we're at the point of 300/Crossroads/Exile or Planet Hulk.

    Given that we're getting a Hulk in space arc, maybe Cates will take it somewhere paralleling Planet Hulk with the inevitable return to Earth storyline.

    Hulk going off into the Multiverse would provide similar themes, and it’s never been done. I’m hoping that’s the plan.
