Indestructible Hulk Special #1 (HERE BE SPOILERS!)

This arc is starting to remind of the cross-over event that James Asmus wrote for the "Namor:  The First Mutant," "Steve Rogers:  Super-Soldier," and "Uncanny X-Men" annuals.  It's a rollicking good time, with excellent moments of characterization and a good sense of fun.  Plus, Costa keeps us guessing:  I really didn't see Beast's professor becoming the bad guy.  (I can't wait to see Otto-Spidey recant his confession that he was willing to believe that the original X-Men had created a disturbance in the space/time continuum!)  That said, I wonder how Dr. Jude knew that original Beast had come to the present and how he could benefit from exploiting confusion related to that by LMDs of Abomination and Dr. Octopus.  I guess that we'll see next issue!  (Also?  The Hulk cuddling puppies to return to Banner?  Well played, Costa.  Well played.)

*** (three of five stars)
