Good evening! I just finished reading the Tempest Fugit arc in The Incredible Hulk #s 77-81 by Peter David and Lee Weeks and I'm a little confused by what it all meant. I never read Bruce Jones' run but I understand this was a soft retcon saying that maybe his run had all been a dream (or maybe not).
But I didn't get the parts about Nightmare's daughter inhabiting Betty Ross' comatose body or who the blind guy named Ripley was? Or what role Nightmare's daughter played in everything and the final scene with Betty Ross washing ashore into Nightmare's arms? Or if nightmare having his head ripped off but being fine means that all the scenes with Nightmare and Hulk were all a dream too because how else could he survive that? Or why/how Nightmare brought Hulk to the island instead of continuing the subtle attack he had apparently been doing for years? And what was then really going on while Hulk was hallucinating, was that ever discussed? And I'm rambling a bit but I'm really confused by this storyline and shortly after the Hulk ripped a great white shark in half at the beginning it lost me.
I appreciate any input from those more knowledgeable in Hulk lore or who remember reading this arc from '05!
