    Question about the Red Hulk

    I'm sorry to even bring up this retarded character all over again, but I need a question answered.

    So I guess Red Hulk is Thunderbolt Ross, which is all well and good, but I just finally read the fourth volume of Loeb's run on Hulk today, which happened before the reveal. It's the one where Hulk and his merc crew fight X-Force because Dom saw his real identity. Anyway, wasn't that Thunderbolt giving Rulk his orders earlier on?

    I'm sure it's explained later in the series, but it's just so asinine that I don't feel like reading about it any more. Could someone just give me a quick answer as to how that was possible?

    It was probably the Ross LMD robot. Yeah, the whole thing sucks.

    No, it's Loeb so it was never explained. It was dumb.

    Um... no, for seriously, it was robits. I read that explanation issue, and I have the blood soaked comic to prove it.

    Robots doubles posing as the real thing should be banned from comics for five years.

    Ross, toyman, braniac.

    I like Robots.

    LMDs get used by Marvel as often as DC uses Crisisesesseses

    Heh, so damn true.

    Someday I hope that they really lay out a simple chronology of the entire Hulk/Skaar/Rulk mess beginning from after WWH ended, so that I can actually read it and try to understand and got caught up on the entire damn mess, just out of curiosity, as opposed to really being fully interested in the characters involved.

    Plus, with RULK about to join the Avengers, I feel like I should know a bit more of the character so I'll know what the heck is going on, or at least a little bit of it. Lord knows Bendis can't screw up Rulk based on the character's origins, etc.

    I've got nothing against using robot duplicates in principle. It's when it's a retcon to try to cover up a terribly unorganized, ill-conceived, and gargantuan mess of a storyline that I have a problem with it.
