  • Bride of the Incredible Hulk

    Bride of the Incredible Hulk

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Before I review Bride of The Incredible Hulk, I'm going to briefly talk about the first season of The Incredible Hulk series, which I've worked through in the last few days. I've enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would. I expected the premise - David Banner 'Hulking' out in a variety of scenarios - to be stretched to within an inch of its life but it just about works.

With or without context, that will always be hilarious to me but it's also a demonstration of the Hulk's strength within the narrative.

    It's such a shame that Spider-Man has become one giant walking meme because it is a solid superhero adventure from a time when solid superhero adventures still didn't really exist.

    ★★★½

    If nothing else, I think the humour of Thor is really underrated amongst the plague that exists in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: quipping. The humour in this, which is helped out a lot by Thor's fish-out-of water predicament, is really subtle and understated. For example, Thor smashing a mug and shouting "ANOTHER!" is hilarious because he knows this to be a sign of respect and gratefulness for sampling the wonders of the universe, but we Earth people don't like noise and outsiders.
