Hulk Burns in Marvel Teaser: "The Best Defense"

Old Marvel is at it again, releasing vague teaser images to promote an upcoming comic book series, event, or reboot. This time, it's a flaming Immortal Hulk taking the spotlight in a teaser making clever use of the default setting for Photoshop's "emboss" text layer effect, captioned: The Best Defense." No other information was provided in the press blast from Marvel, other than to say the teaser features art by art by Ron Garney and Richard Isanove.

If we're assuming this will be a Hulk-centric comic/event/reboot/whatever, then perhaps we can look to the most recent Immortal Hulk solicits from November for clues:

IMMORTAL HULK #8

• Bruce Banner is dead. His corpse has been dissected, his organs catalogued, and his inner workings are being studied by the scientists of Shadow Base.
• Bruce Banner is no longer a threat.
• That just leaves the IMMORTAL HULK…

IMMORTAL HULK #9

32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events. Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
