Bruce Banner, David Banner… some sort of Banner has been the “main” Hulk for quite a while but Marvel is switching things up. Amadeus Cho takes over as the first Korean-American Hulk and we'll learn about Banner's fate as part of the series.
Not thrilled that the title is actually “Totally Awesome Hulk” but suppose it's better than Totally Tubular Hulk or Totally Gnarly Hulk. Will be interesting to see if the change of pace takes off for Marvel or not and how it will affect the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
