Marvel’s New ‘World War Hulk’ Is The Complete Opposite Of The Original
World War M has a lot going for it in its name, but the Maestro’s mission is the complete opposite of what Hulk was during the original.
Warning! Spoilers for Maestro: World War M #1 by Marvel Comics
Marvel has a new World War Pontoon event with Maestro like his star. But despite sharing a name, it’s the exact opposite of Bruce Banner’s original revenge mission. The miniseries is the culmination of Peter David’s Maestro trilogy. It is illustrated by German Peralta.
In a war-torn future, the Hulk renames himself Maestro and seeks to conquer all. During the Peter David Trilogy, Maestro cemented his power by trying to destroy Doctor Doom and firing missiles at AIM’s underground base. Unfortunately, an old Hulk rival, the Abomination, was airborne in the base, and the launch of the missile woke him up. Abomination is then recruited by Namor to help take down Maestro. With his enemies teaming up and Doctor Doom still on the run, Maestro seeks to end his threats once and for all.
the original world war hulk was an exciting event as it was the definitive cornerstone of the Planet Hulk story. Fans wondered when the Hulk would join the mainstream Marvel Universe on Earth after being exiled to a gladiator-like planet. He returned with a vengeance, seeking to punish Marvel’s so-called Illuminati not only for banishing him to space, but also for destroying the happy life he had built there. Corn World War M has none of that emotion behind it. Instead, Maestro is on a very different mission, one that’s fueled by a cold logic of world domination rather than emotional rage. This “emotion versus logic” dynamic means that the two events are opposites.
Realistically though, it would be impossible for Maestro to embark on a similar mission to the original. world war hulk. The truth is, Maestro and the mainstream Hulk are two completely different characters. In his timeline, Maestro has moved away from the former Hulk that he was to become something completely different. Anger has become such a fixed part of his personality that he no longer becomes enraged as fans usually think when it comes to the Hulk. Maestro has tyrannical ambitions. He is a cold and calculating character by nature. world war hulk as a story, doesn’t the Hulk embark on a carefully laid out plan. It was a reaction driven purely by emotion, something Maestro is proud to have overcome.
Besides being the opposite of the original world war hulk, World War M is misleading in the title. In connection with world war hulk, that would imply that it’s Maestro against the world. But in this story, the world is practically destroyed. It’s an apocalyptic wasteland. Maestro’s main adversary is not the world at large, but a few remaining survivors he must defeat to complete his conquest. Then again, Marvel and comic books in general are notorious for misleading titles in order to grab readers’ interest. And when it comes to Maestrothe thought of him at war with the world is an easily captivating premise.
