Legacy can be an impediment in finding one’s own path in life. It can be something you try to live up to because it always has been great. It can also be something because it is great, that the pressure becomes too much. Then there is one whose legacy, they are trying to escape.
Family can certainly be a burden, one whose presence outlives its mortal coil. As there are family members who are no longer with us, whose imprint on the family is so strong, you cannot break from them. AS their presence on Earth was more than a presence in your life, it changed who you became. In Planet Hulk: Worldbreaker #1 we find one of Hulk’s descendants in the far reaches of the universe, where those looking for him will either find friend or foe.
We are taken to the Planet Sakaar, where a large crowd has gathered to talk about the legend of Hulk, who they fear, as his ancestors are amongst the inhabitants, but stay in hiding. So when one of them gets kidnapped by a crazed they search fro one of banner’s descendants but instead finds Amadeus Cho, who reluctantly helps .Meanwhile in New Mexico, She Hulk and Skaar are looking for Bruce, as they are looking to get back to Sakaar. By the issue’s end, Amadeus must fight his way out and Skaar looks to find his own way.
Overall, Planet Hulk: Worldbreaker #1 is an excellent debut issue that the shows the vastness of this saga that started with Planet Hulk. The story by Pak is exciting. The art by the creative team is gorgeous. Altogether, a story that will have readers running to grab the second issue.
