The New Hulk Is A Korean-American Dude
Boy genius Amadeus Cho will start hulking out in December's Totally Awesome Hulk.
When Marvel first announced their new Totally Awesome Hulk series as part of their line-wide "All-New All-Different Marvel" relaunch, they deliberately kept the new Hulk's identity a secret.
But Marvel Comics announced today that the forthcoming Totally Awesome Hulk comic will feature Korean-American super-genius Amadeus Cho as the title character rather than Bruce Banner.
This will be the first time in Marvel's history that they will publish a series starring a Korean-American character made by Korean-American creators – writer Greg Pak, and artist Frank Cho.
The key difference between this new Hulk and the traditional Bruce Banner version is that Amadeus Cho is going to actually enjoy becoming the Hulk.
"[Amadeus] is going to be a very different kind of Hulk. He's 19 years old, he's on top of the world, he thinks he's right about everything…and he might be," Pak told Entertainment Weekly. "Or he might not be. But this is a kid who's got a ridiculous amount of confidence. A lot of it has been justly earned, but he may be in over his head, and he's going to come in here and he's determined to be the best Hulk there's ever been. He loves being the Hulk. And that may cause massive trouble for everyone else in the Marvel Universe. It's just a great recipe."
