Marvel’s Top 10 Hulk Villains, More ‘Incredible Hulk’ Video
As part of "Hulk Month" on Marvel.com, the publisher’s online crew recently put together a list of the Top 10 villains to test the Green Goliath’s mettle throughout the character’s long history.
While I disagree with the assertion by Marvel.com’s "spy on the wall" blogger Agent M that the publisher does Top 10 lists "better than other feeble comic sites," I did enjoy this list of Hulk villains. If nothing else, it reaffirmed my belief that the Jade Giant (yes, I’m trying to use every possible nickname for Hulk in this article) has one of the most bizarre rogue’s galleries in comics.
Case in point: Bi-Beast
"You know the old saying, ‘two heads are better than one’? Nowhere is that more true than in the case of Bi-Beast. With one head containing knowledge of warfare and combat, and another head containing knowledge of history and culture—stacked on top of a body containing immense power—this android packs a formidable one-two punch. Though defeated by Hulk time and again, he remains one of the Hulk’s toughest sparring partners to date."
Head over to Marvel.com for the rest of the list. Oh, and one suggestion, Marvel.com crew: If you’re going to offer readers "a special spotlight comic" to go with each entry on the list, it would help if you didn’t need a paid subscription to view them.
And one more thing to note for fans of ol’ Green Genes, there’s a great, action-packed clip from the upcoming Incredible Hulk film now available on Marvel.com. I’m fairly certain it’s been available for a while now, but I hadn’t happened upon it until this week.
The clip features a great little battle between Hulk and Emil Blonsky (played by Tim Roth), and is the sort of wild, speed-vs-power action sequence I can imagine happening if Bruce Banner’s alter ego ever encountered Spider-Man (minus the gunplay, of course).
I’ve embedded the video here, but you can also check it out on Marvel.com, where they have all of the previous Hulk previews leading up to the film’s June 13 release.
