Hulk Vs. Thor: Banner of War Alpha # 1 first impressions: “Understands what has always made these characters fun”

The Marvel match-up of the year is here. On May 10, the House of Ideas releases Hulk Vs. Thor: Banner of War Alpha # 1, the first chapter of the five-part ‘Banner of War’ crossover featuring the latest mano a mano showdown between Avengers powerhouses Hulk and Thor. But just why are they fighting? And does the series do justice to the epic collision between these two titans? Read on to find out.

Banner of War Alpha # 1 is drawn by Martin Coccolo, written by Donny Cates, colored by Matt Wilson, and lettered by Joe Sabino. It picks up where the Hulk and Thor series (both written by Cates) left off, with Thor as reluctant King of Asgard and Hulk under complete control of Bruce Banner, who “pilots” him much like a suit of armor. Recently, Banner used the Hulk’s body to flee Earth, where he is wanted for the murder of seventeen people in El Paso. The story begins when Thor is notified of Hulk / Banner’s location and decides to pursue it.
