The Leader's appearances, (as per Warbound mini-series)

Post by Kevin W. » Tue Apr 01, 2008 11:43 pm

In the last issue of the Warbound mini-series, the Leader references the series of transformations he's undergone over the years. As the Leader speaks, in one panel, we see the giant brain and eyes floating in the jar, (as shown in the final issues of Bruce Jones' run on the Hulk). So this would seem to undo Peter David's claim that Bruce Jones' run was all an illusion created by Nightmare.

Though I still have no clue how this ties in with the Leader's recent appearance in the pages of She-Hulk from a few months back...
Keeping track of Bendis References since 2001!

In She-Hulk v2 #18, the Leader's claim was that he faked his death twice. He never said that it wasn't him as the brain in the jar, though, so there's some wiggle room.

And I'm glad that whole "hey, maybe the Bruce Jones run was a dream!" bit is being discredited. That seemed a really poor way to whitewash those stories.
