Marvel Teases a New Hulk - The Deadliest One Ever

A deadly new Hulk is about to enter the Marvel Universe -- the deadliest, in fact.

Hulk #6, written by Donny Cates and illustrated by Ryan Ottley, sees a new titan rise, and while details are scarce, Ottley's artwork offers a glimpse of the terrifying monster's clawed black hand emerging from Hulk's back.

"This new threat is basically the Hulk’s Knull, but just like Donny and Ryan’s run on Hulk overall, it’s crazier and more dangerous than you can imagine," editor Will Moss said. "The heroes of the Marvel Universe may think Hulk is the problem, but he’s not -- THIS is the problem. And after Hulk #6, there’s no stopping it…"

In June 2021, it was announced that Cates and Ottley would serve as the creative team for Hulk's relaunch following the conclusion of the acclaimed Immortal Hulk series. "Marvel just gave me the keys to the strongest one there is," Cates said at the time. "Haha... oh boy. You guys are just not ready for this. You’re about to find out what happens when Ryan Ottley and I get angry....and guess what? Well...pretty sure you’re gonna like us a lot when we’re angry."
