    Honestly? I liked all of them. And it's a shame that his entire rogue's gallery has been ignored because they're all pretty solid antagonists to have around in the MU. Unfortunately, too many creators/editors are stuck in a mindset of doing cover stories for their old favorites instead of making and utilizing quality characters.

    Black Fog for example would be a challenge for any street-leveler.

    Zero/One could easily be an Avengers level threat.

    Omegex vs Thor or Surfer would be nuts.

    Dagan Shah?

    Come on! Parker did an excellent job with these characters and Marvel just dumped them into limbo. What a waste.

    My favorite is Zero/One!

    @Ceebiro-I agree, most of the Red Hulk's rogues gallery have lots of potential. I'd love to see Ghost Rider fight Black Fog, or The Unseen or The Avengers take on Omegex. But my favourite is probably Fortean-because of the irony, his character, and how it bought Ross' journey as The Hulk full circle, knowing how The Hulk felt when he hunted him.

    I agree, Rulks Rogues Gallery was awesome. Dagan Shah, reminds me of Dr Doom and Magneto. Zero/One was good, I thought that she would have shown up in Thunderbolts.

    Talking of Rulk's Rogues Gallery, here's my thoughts on Red Hulk #30.1:

    Red Hulk #30.1
    'The Whale'
    What Happens: Red Hulk is violently beaten by General Reggie Fortean, a US Army General, and former comrade of Thunderbolt Ross, who The Red Hulk 'murdered'. Soon, Fortean issues an ultimatum: Red Hulk must surrender himself to the US Army, or Fortean will begin to hunt him down...
    What did I think of it: This was one of Marvel's Point One issues, which are designed as a jumping on point for new readers, which starts a new story or direction for the title. Red Hulk does this by introducing a new villain: reggie Fortean, and introducing Red Hulk via him. However, this doesn't give potential new readers a very in-depth view of Rulk himself-in fact he seems more like a villain in this issue (or at least he does from Fortean's point of view). Also, this issue introduces Annie. She doesn't appear much in this issue, but soon becomes a great recurring character. This issue also expands on another irony of Ross being stuck looking like his greatest enemy-being hunted down by a General who thinks he's a menace. In fact, Rulk's speech to Fortean, saying that hunting a Hulk makes you lose focus on what's really important, shows how much Ross has developed as a character-from a 2D villain to a full, sympathetic character.
    In summary, this issue shows how much Ross has changed, and introduces a great villain with an interesting new motive. Another great issue.

    Next, I'm going to read Incredible Hulk #600, the story that introduced me to The Red Hulk. When did you guys first encounter The Red Hulk?

    I love RULK too. One of my favorite villian/hero.
    The hunt of Fortean was the tragic one.
    Fortean remind Rulk as him in the past. Endless hunt.

    Hi Freddie, Welcome to CBR, and to the IncREDible Appreciation thread!
    I definitely found the similarities between Rulk and Ross to be very ironic, especially how Fortean was hunting down Rulk for the 'murder' of Ross.

    Thank for warm welcome.
    It was too complicate to explain everything to Fortean in RULK form.
    Unfortunately, he cannot face Fortean in human form too.

    However, thanks for Fortean and Omegex to make RULK realized how important of being human more than Hulk. After that event, he tries to keep himself in human form as much as he can.

    I absolutely loved Parker's run. Zero/One was my favorite character seconded by Annie. I was going to put that in the Unpopular Opinions thread, however it's nice to see I'm not a loner.
    I make love, you make me sick.

    I wish that the same could apply to Jennifer Walters as everyone wants to keep her as the She-Hulk instead of her human form, which is important as well. Professionally and socially, Jennifer should stay in her human form and use the She-Hulk for the more important battles.

    What did you guys think of Jeph Loeb's run? I wasn't a fan of Rulk hitting the Watcher, but other than that I thought it was great read. Ross had a lot of character growth. I love Ed McGuinness' art.

    I actually enjoyed parts of Loeb's Hulk run.

    Yes, Loeb did stretch out the mystery for too long (and jobbed the hell out of established characters) but all in all, it was just crazy, silly fun.

    Firstly I'd like to welcome everyone to the IncREDible thread. Glad to see that there are so many Red Hulk fans here. Personally, I really enjoyed Loeb's run. It was very action-movie fun (especially the fight with Thor in space). Plus, the series had some great artists. Also, I liked how Parker later made the Watcher punch lead into the Omegex story.

    I thought the introduction of the Red Hulk was absolutely amazing as he was a menace unlike anything the Marvel Universe had seen before: a Hulk that was more than just crazy powerful, but cunning, intelligent and utterly vicious. I also enjoyed Jeph Loeb's run (just started re-reading it) and Mighty Roman's description of it as "action movie fun" (Rulk's throwdown with Thor was classic) was right on target, and while it could be argued that Loeb unnecesarily stretched out the mystery of Rulk's identity, when it was finally revealed, it shocked even me, and I like to think I'm old enough not to surprised by anything that happens in super hero books. All in all, a great character who deserves more exposure.
