The Hulk's turned into a dismembered entity

It was bad enough Marvel decided to turn the Hulk's solo book into a horror-themed series. Now, things have gotten worse, as Bruce Banner's alter ego is subject to more gruesome abuse:
You can tell that these artists are excited to bring Ewing’s story to life, and as the stakes build, the art team gets to make even bigger, bolder choices. The last issue ended with a wild cliffhanger revealing Hulk’s body broken into parts stored in separate containers in a lab, and even though his physical form has been completely dismantled, the creature still lives. This exclusive preview of next week’s The Immortal Hulk #8 reveals more about the organization that has apprehended and disassembled Hulk, introducing an obnoxious scientist obsessed with unlocking the secrets of Hulk’s immortality.
Gee, this is simply disgusting. And the real obnoxious scientists at work here would have to be the "creatives" who crafted this revolting premise. Apparently, this is what the Hulk's been reduced to, as Marvel's stable of poor scribes clearly ran out of ideas for how else to make use of Stan Lee's green-skinned giant. As I may have noted before, turning the Hulk immortal, whether dismembered or not, defeats the whole premise of his conception, reducing him to a god-like entity in much the same way Wolverine was depicted during the 1st Civil War in the late 2000s. Which doesn't make for organic character focus, and only cheapens it all.

As a result, these are not so much "big" and "bold" choices, so much as they are easy ones.

What, no love for Al Ewing?
