Mark Waid doesn't think humor can work with the Hulk's action

USA Today wrote about Mark Waid's plans for the Hulk, such as changing the "Incredible" part of his title to "Indestructible" for the sake of the Marvel NOW relaunching, and he said that:
"There's not a whole lot of room for humor with Hulk smashing things. It's not as cerebral a book as Daredevil can be," the award-winning writer says.
He clearly never read Peter David's take on the green goliath at the time he was still a talented writer himself, which did find plenty of room for humor and if it involves the Hulk smashing up the headquarters of villains while wisecracking, I don't see what's not entertaining about that. David's run only fell apart towards the end when he killed off Betty Banner, apparently taking out his anger over personal problems he was going through at the time using Betty as the means of doing it. She may have been revived later on, but since it was within the time Joe Quesada had become EIC, it was still a botch.

What Waid says makes me wonder if he's never even watched an action-comedy movie, where humor can be found in knocking up the bad guys and their HQs if done right. All the same, he's gone downhill fast in past years, and I wouldn't expect him to deliver any talent on the Hulk's book either.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
