I don't know why I love Bendis, but he is the one who put Hulk and Cap together for the first time and he did it again in this issue. it's like there should be a team-up book with these two together. I like the Hulk and Cap interacting, so this book gave me what I wanted.
Cap asked for Hulk to follow. Hulk went on a Quinjet with Cap to visit the military and talk to a general. Hulk got out of the Quinjet and they talked to the General. Hulks obedience was the surprising thing here. Why did Hulk do what Cap told him too? But I can see why the Hulk didn't turn up for the Defenders arc. Hulk was too busy with the Avengers in space. it's like Hulk is Caps little lap dog now. In both the movie and now this book, the Hulk and Cap relationship is what I enjoy the most. It's like in the movie, Cap knows already what the Hulk is. - berserker being, but who knows his limits. Yet, in the movie, Hulk took delight in punding Thor and Iron Man around like toy dolls. But here, Hulk is content to tag along and be the muscle. it's something I would have liked to see in the Hulk movies a lot, but never got the chance.
Then already we find out some intergalactic council has made Earth a hands-off planet for everyone, so now we are in a cosmic story that already started somewhere else. Are we going to learn who this council is? Because I would like to know what gives them the right to single out Earth for non-interference, and what makes the Earth so dangerous in their eyes?
The story isn't that much about Thanos trying to take over the Earth as it is some cosmic body telling Earth what to do, and what Earth is. I'd like to see the Earth representatives come face to face with this council and ask what makes Earth so dangerous and how Cap can do something to make that less? I know Cap disagrees with the statement by the council that Earth is dangerous, but I'd like to see Cap argue the point.
And what are all these sexual inuendo's going on here? First it was Hawkeye and Natalia, then, it was Thor and Gamora. I've seen spontaneous love affairs, but the stairs in this story are way more rapid than I'm used too. Are there a bunch of hormones going off I'm not aware of? I remember Cap jumping that troll woman in that 5 issue mini in the 9 realms. Is this some of that going on? Do these super hero types jump the opposite sex if they just look at them? Maybe the Earthers are the most dangerous species out there, if they procreate at the drop of a hat.
Just a little surprised that Tony didn't parade out the Shi'ar Ship the Illuminati used in the attack on the Skrull home world. maybe it was repossessed?
