Do you think it was an accident that the Watcher showed up today? Two of the strongest beings in the universe--at odds against each other--cracking the earth down to the core. Don't pass out on me yet. I'm not interested interested in that milksop Banner. I want the Hulk!
The line in the sand between man and beast gets very blurry during war. You don't get to hold your moral ground when 'thou shalt not kill' is no longer an option. That doesn't make me uncomfortable. Never has.
It's over. I never should've put my faith in Banner. I might die, but worse than that, this country -- which I gave an oath to serve -- will fall in a military coup that I designed. The Intelligencia has won.
I always suspected that Talbot was an L.M.D. Like with the Ross L.M.D., the Leader wasn't going to let anyone assume command other than himself. This Talbot probably didn't even know he was just a thing. The Glenn Talbot I knew and respected was and will remain dead. In the end, everything is as it should be. I won.
No, I figured this out before I ever changed. But now I really get it. Hulk is every part of yourself you don't let out. The ugly truth any decent human tries to hide. I'm a soldier. Was. My whole career was about acknowledging that side and letting it do what only it could. To survive. To kill.
Fight smart! Fight the fights you can win! Don't pick a fight beyond your power grade! Don't think of it as a fighting of friend or an X-Man... think of it as saving the world! Put you opponent down because they will do likewise! If we are not successful the world won't exist tomorrow! Be successful!
Karen, my commander's daughter, years later. And then...my wife. Karen came with me to every post until Betty was born. Then I pulled every string I could to get assigned to the nearest base so we could come back here to live.
He's used the Rigellian resources to manipulate hydrogen -- create a new water supply and terraform the desert. It harnesses geothermal power to run the city and protect it with the impassable dome. I only cannot see why the Rigellian program wasn't successful at imprinting its protocol in his brain.
Really? That's the easiest thing to figure. The alien program never had a chance. It was made to work with a bunch of clean slates, not a warrior who's gone through hell for years to stay alive. The kinds of things a man has to do to become...to keep his people alive in the desert, even without always being hunted? You're not going to change that man's mind. Ever.
Let him go, Red! ... The Arab League came to an agreement earlier. They recognize new borders as defined by the man you're holding. He's agreed to stop trading arms, and a majority of the member nations accepted. Sharzhad is now a legitimate country, and you're on their ground.
