Marvel’s god, the One Above All, is the final villain of Immortal Hulk

Al Ewing’s Never-ceasing Hulk ended up out its run today with an additional-long 50th concern in which numerous of Bruce Banner’s alternate characters came in person with the series’ supreme cosmic bad guy: The One Below All.

If that doesn’t sound a bell for you, well, the Marvel Comics universe has a great deal of gods, whether they’re Norse, Eternal, or huge robotics. Above all those, it has The One Above All, presented in a 2004 concern of Wonderful 4. Ewing’s Never-ceasing Hulk presented the One Below All as, get this, the huge, green, hate-filled equivalent of God, and the developer of all gamma-mutated characters in the Marvel Universe.

So, naturally, the climax of the last concern includes the Hulk actually chewing out God, requiring to be informed why he was made, if it’s simply to suffer.

What else is occurring in the pages of our preferred comics? We’ll inform you. Invite to Monday Funnies, Polygon’s weekly list of the books that our comics editor enjoyed this previous week. It’s part society pages of superhero lives, part reading suggestions, part “look at this cool art.” There might be some spoilers. There might not suffice context. However there will be terrific comics. (And if you missed out on the last edition, read this.)

One substantial mark of a superhero’s value within their setting is that they have a recognized supporting cast that stays constant with time and various imaginative groups. So among the important things that makes me the most fired up about Marvel Female over the next year is that there will quickly be 3 continuous books under her umbrella — 4, if you count Justice League.

That’s a lot of development of her supporting cast, and this weekend we found out something even more exciting: All those books are winding up for the first crossover event spinning out of the Marvel Female mythos because 1991.

6 Partners of Trigger Keaton #5

“I don’t want to die,” says Skippy. “We’re not going to kill you. We’re just going to beat you up real bad,” answers a burly man. “Well, I don’t want that, either! Shit shit shit shit shit,” yelps Skippy as he runs out of the room, leaving his friends behind in Six Sidekicks of Trigger Keaton #5 (2021).

6 Partners of Trigger Keaton continues wonderfully on every level. Here, we see the running gag of the Sidekicks coming across a threatening scenario and Skippy right away beating feet. However it’s the concept of his duplicating “SHIT SHIT SHIT” in a string of linked word balloons that follows his retreat like footprints in a Household Circus comic — that’s what keeps it amusing whenever. Simply the very best work.
