She Hulk vs Hulk (kinda)

I’ve been reading the Acts of Vengeance series from Marvel just recently.  The series came out in 1989 which was right in my wheelhouse of youthful comic reading.  A large cross-title storyline in which the villians attacked heroes that they wouldn’t normally fight.  Since I was following several titles at the time I had read most of the series when it came out.  Well, going through it recently I read several issues of Cloak and Dagger that were part of the story.  And the Green Hulk was on the cover.

Wait, the Hulk was grey at the time.  What the crap?  So the Avengers show up and Dagger is blind and Cloak has powers and I don’t remember them and…  Well, the Hulk’s cousin, She Hulk, takes on her angry family member…

Yep, a robot.  The same robot that gets used all the time by by random villians to make you say: “Oh, no.  The Hulk’s really lost it now!  Will (fill in the Marvel title you’re reading) be able to survive?!?”  Then they notice everytime this Hulk hits them it feels the same (which how does that work?)  So the hero fighting the Hulk realizes the madder Hulk gets the stronger Hulk stays…  Oh, it’s a robot.  Something about cosmic energy and then questioning which foul super genius sent this after me.

Well this time RoboHulk has some new weapons.

Yes.  Tickling.  Wouldn’t work on Iron Man.  I think.  Tony Stark may have a Mark 19 fetish armor somewhere.

The battle continues!

She Hulk gains the upper hand and saves the day.  All while wearing capri pants!

I wonder what 13 year old me would have thought about this whole ordeal.  I’m surprised I didn’t buy the Cloak and Dagger issues with the Hulk on the cover, but I don’t even remember seeing them.  If I did maybe I passed up on them since I was buying 32 different Spiderman titles since I was so excited he had COSMIC POWERS! Yeah, maybe more on that later…
