Al Ewing’s Immortal Hulk completed out its run this week with an extra-long fiftieth challenge by which a number of of Bruce Banner’s alternate personalities got here face-to-face with the sequence’ final cosmic villain: The One Beneath All.

Above all these, it has The One Above All, launched in a 2004 challenge of Implausible 4. Ewing’s Immortal Hulk launched the One Beneath All as, get this, the large, inexperienced, hate-filled counterpart of God, and the creator of all gamma-mutated characters within the Marvel Universe.
So, naturally, the climax of the ultimate challenge includes the Hulk actually yelling at God, demanding to be advised why he was made, if it’s simply to endure.
