Mister Fantastic, Getting It Wrong Again in Amazing Spider-Man #42

Oh Mister Fantastic, When you get it wrong, you really get it wrong. Today's Immortal Hulk #33 reminds of us a certain Planet Hulk, a result of Mister Fantastic sending Hulk off to a peaceful planet, to live out his days in harmless solitude, only for him actually to end up on a warlike planet, have to fight his way to the top and return to Earth with a brethren of warriors to declare war on those who would exile him.
