Savage Hulk v2 #1-6

Post by Col_Fury » Mon Apr 17, 2017 3:07 am

SAVAGE HULK v2 #1 (August 2014)
By ALAN DAVIS!

APPEARANCES:
Leader, Hulk, Professor X, Angel, Beast, Cyclops, Havok, Iceman, Marvel Girl, Polaris, Abomination, Jeb, Dorothy, Hulkbusters, Maj. Talbot (bts)

FLASHBACK:
Recap of X 66, no new information.
SYNOPSIS:
Leader watches news reports of the Hulk’s encounter with the X-Men. Meanwhile, the Hulk escapes from a Hulkbuster unit. Professor X wants to use the device Banner created that got Xavier out of his come to cure the Hulk. Hulk calms down and reverts to Banner; he meets two RV-ers and they feed him. The X-Men return to Banner’s cave lab, but they’re attacked by the Abomination.

NOTE:
Xavier was awoken from his coma “hours ago.” X2 94/2 (the lead-in to X:HY) happens “30 hours” after X 66 (while X:HY 1 takes place during then after X 66). So, this should happen before X2 94/2.

SAVAGE HULK v2 #2 (September 2014)
By ALAN DAVIS!

APPEARANCES:
Hulk (also in fb), Professor X, Angel, Beast, Cyclops, Havok, Iceman, Marvel Girl, Polaris, Abomination (also in fb), Jeb, Dorothy, Hulkbusters, Maj. Talbot (also bts in fb), Leader

FLASHBACK:
Abomination attacks the Hulk, but when the Hulkbusters arrive he runs away (right before last issue).
SYNOPSIS:
The X-men fight the Abomination. Meanwhile, Bruce changes into Hulk and leaps in to fight the Abomination. Hulk throws the Aboination at the Hulkbusters and Maj. Talbot decides to imprison Aboination instead of going after the Hulk. The X-Men start the process of curing the Hulk while the Leader spies on them. Marvel Girl ants to help Professor X telepathically guide the machine to cure Banner, but an explosion turns her into a Hulk.

SAVAGE HULK v2 #3 (October 2014)
By ALAN DAVIS!

APPEARANCES:
Hulk, Professor X, Angel, Beast, Cyclops, Havok, Iceman, Marvel Girl, Polaris, Leader

SYNOPSIS:
Marvel Girl’s mental abilities have been amplified, and Professor X thinks she’s controlling the other X-Men. Suddenly, they’re all attacked by robots. Bruce tries to get Xavier away from the fighting, but Xavier quickly discovers the two of them are inside Bruce’s thoughts. Bruce explains whenever Bruce tries to fight the Hulk, the Hulk becomes stronger; he must have developed mental abilities to fight Xavier’s telepathy. They wake up and find they’ve been tied up by the Leader, who plans to sap the Hulk’s strength for himself.

NOTE:
TECHNICALLY speaking, Leader is just -BTS here (or -VO I guess), controlling a robot of himself as revealed next issue. Essentially, though, it’s him, so I’ll just say he appears here.

SAVAGE HULK v2 #4 (November 2014)
By ALAN DAVIS!

APPEARANCES:
Hulk, Leader, Professor X, Angel, Beast, Cyclops, Havok, Iceman, Marvel Girl, Polaris, Jeb, Dorothy, Hulkbusters, Maj. Talbot

SYNOPSIS:
In an effort to stop being trapped by Banner’s device, Hulk develops telekinesis and defeats the Leader and his robots. Hulk destroys a mountain and burns off his excess energy, losing his telekinesis, then leaves. Professor X surmises that Banner is still in the Hulk somewhere, controlling his actions.

NOTE:
And we’re basically back to where we were at the end of X 66, so SMF2 9-FB is still fine after this.

Of course, the Abomination poses a small wrinkle here. In TTA 91/2 (his first story), Abomination is sent off to the Stranger’s world. In SS 12-FB, Abomination is upset at being imprisoned. In SS 12, Abomination is freed from imprisonment, then is sent back to the Stranger’s world. In T 178, he’s still on the Stranger’s world. In IH2 137-FB he ends up on a spaceship, and in IH2 136 he’s on that spaceship.

After T 178 is too late. Hulk appears in X 66 then SMF2 9, after which Spider-Man appears in A 82, after which Thor appears in T 178. No good.

It looks like after SS 12-FB and before SS 12 is our only spot. We’ll have to squint a little; in SS 12 Abomination is freed from imprisonment and it’s fairly clear he was transported in from the Stranger’s world. BUT, Abomination is imprisoned by the Hulkbusters in SAVH2 2. Maybe he was freed from THAT imprisonment? Besides, he found a way off to appear in IH2 137-FB somewhere else, maybe he did whatever that was to appear here. In theory:

ABOMINATION/EMIL BLONSKY
IH3 25-FB
{TTA 90/2}
TTA 91/2 (sent to Stranger’s world)
SS 12-FB (upset at being imprisoned)
<somehow gets off Stranger’s world>
SAVH2 2-FB (attacks Hulk)
SAVH2 1 (fights X-Men & Hulk)
SAVH2 2 (imprisoned by military)
SS 12 (freed from imprisonment, sent back to Stranger’s world)
DEF2 10 (time travel shenanigans)
T 178 (still on Stranger’s world)
IH2 137-FB (already got off Stranger’s world somehow again, gets on a spaceship)

SAVAGE HULK v2 #5 (December 2014)
By Gabriel Hardman & Corinna Bechko

APPEARANCES:
Doctor Strange, S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Becerra, Congressman Balsam, Ebbin (Sorcerer Supreme of his dimension), Puffball Collective (from IH2 301!), Korv (Ebbin’s “Wong,” basically), Hulk

FLASHBACK:
Recap of H 300, no new information.
SYNOPSIS:
Doctor Strange testifies at a Congressional hearing to see if he made the right decision by banishing the Hulk to another dimension. A Sorcerer Supreme from another dimension appears and accuses Strange of genocide. He follows the creature (and a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent tags along) to find the Hulk. Strange wonders why his failsafe to send Hulk to another dimension when he’s unhappy didn’t work, or the other failsafe where Hulk wasn’t supposed to go to an inhabited world didn’t work either. Strange learns this dimension ages at an accelerated rate, and generations have been fighting the Hulk; this Sorcerer Supreme dies of old age in front of Strange.

NOTE:
The Puffball Collective appears here, so this is after IH2 301 (it’s first appearance) and before IH2 308 (where it’s killed). Between IH2 307-308 seems like as good a place as any for this to go.

SAVAGE HULK v2 #6 (January 2015)
By Gabriel Hardman & Corinna Bechko

APPEARANCES:
Hulk (also in fb), Doctor Strange, S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Becerra, Korv (now the Sorcerer Supreme), Puffball Collective, Congressman Balsam

FLASHBACK:
Hulk arrives in this dimension (before issue #5). Recap of IH2 300 & last issue; no new information.
SYNOPSIS:
Doctor Strange figures out that the Hulk hasn’t left because a spell has been cast to keep him here. He deduces that Korv is responsible; he reveals that he plans to hit Hulk with a Gamma bomb to kill the creature, cull his species and turn the survivors into super monsters like the Hulk. Doctor Strange convinces Hulk that if he stays everyone will die, So Hulk decides he wants to leave and the spell kicks in, taking him to the Crossroads (where he’s greeted by the Puffball Collective). Doctor Strange returns to the Congressional hearing, but it’s been two days since he left. The S.H.I.E.L.D. agent vouches for Strange and everyone’s happy.

NOTE:
Doctor Strange says Hulk has been in this dimension for at least a few weeks, so it’s been longer than that since IH2 300. If this is before IH2 308 for the Hulk than it should also be before M/FAN 20-21 for Doctor Strange (Hulk appears in M/FAN 20 after IH2 308).

At the supermegamonkey website, fnord points out that we don't see the Abomination disappearing at the end of SS 12, so it's possible that it took a couple of days for the spell returning him to take effect, and he appears before the spell sent him back to the Stranger's world:

Thanks!
