The future of the Hulk hasn't been clear... until now.
Ever since Marvel announced that they would be rebooting their universe after the current story arcs are wrapped up, fans have been wondering what the future holds for their favorite characters. We already know that Captain America will be Sam Wilson instead of Steve Rogers, and that Kamala Khan will be Ms. Marvel.
Marvel has finally announced that Totally Awesome Hulk is none other than Amadeus Cho.
Amadeus has a long history with the Hulk.
Like the original Hulk (Bruce Banner), he's a genius with difficulty controlling his emotions. Co-created by Greg Pak almost ten years ago, the character has been a sidekick to both the Hulk and Hercules. "He basically started out as Hulk’s number one fan because he’s a crazy teenager with as little impulse control as the Hulk, so he kind of identified with him." (Via). But there's another reason fans are excited about this new version of the character. It will be the first Marvel series in history to feature a Korean-American lead character, writer, and artist.
"When I had the opportunity to create this new character, I realized there aren’t specifically that many Asian-American characters at this time in the Marvel Universe, and it was sort of a niche. I also wanted to write a character who talks a lot. I was writing a lot of Hulk stuff, I was writing very closed-lip surly characters. But it’s been tremendous. I go to cons and people come up to me dressed as Amadeus Cho, and that blows my mind.”
Totally Awesome Hulk sounds... well, totally awesome!
Is anyone else totally looking forward to reading these comics?
