    Default Bruce Banner & The Illuminati (spoilers)

    I'm still flabbergasted over the recent Avengers/ New Avengers issue and the fact that the Hulk joined the Illuminati.

    The Hulk, the Green Goliath, joining the very group of people/ friends that banished/exiled him from earth for a year and nearly got Manhattan destroyed when he came back for revenge.

    Does anyone think this is a good idea, especially given the various Hulks in Banner's mind ?

    As Hulk and/or Avengers fans what do you think of this ?

    I think it creates a very interesting situation, which is the point.

    I can see the rationale of Banner going along with this... he's a guy that thinks along the same terms as a Reed or a Tony. But I can also see him POSSIBLY being a big problem for the Illuminati down the line.

    With him it can go either way, and I think that's part of whats makes his presence interesting.

    I like him joining the Illuminati. It makes sense since he's smart enough to know the dangers that the incursions pose. It'll make some good drama and I see him being a huge problem later on if they have to destroy a populated world.

    Well, it isn't the WHOLE group.

    Hank and T'challa and Maximus didn't banish him.

    Plus... now he can keep an eye on stuff.

    Namor didn't banish him either, so he knows he has at least 1 strong ally.

    Even when you consider the words "World Breaker" in his name ?

    Don't really think it will work out very well with him being on the team for the long term but it sure will be fun as hell to watch.

    He's not like the other members. He has a conscience.

    You saw how he looked when he asked Iron Man if they actually destroyed a populated planet. Would he eventually agree to do it? Maybe but we'll see some good drama from it.

    Even Stark indicated he's not entirely sure if he could do it. So it's not just Banner who is necessarily a question mark in that regard. But I do think especially given his own personal experience with the Illuminati he's the most likely of the group to not pull the trigger if it came to that.

    Yeah and that's when the confict will happen. I think he's the least likely to pull the trigger out of all of them.

    The Illuminati itself wasn't such a good idea. You can stick whoever you want on the team and you'd be hard pressed to make it come off as worse.

    All four wanted him gone.

    Strange at least should have remembered that trick never works, even when you send him to a crossroads dimension.
