This is Kind of Neat: Hulk Vs. Wolverine

Filed under: Comics — Tags: , , , — Durandal @ 11:26 am

This is a little motion comic based on a backup Hulk/Wolverine story by Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness. That explains why Wolverine (who is Canadian born and bred, true north strong and free and all that) says he hates Canada.

And if that doesn’t work (I can’t tell, I’m having Flash issues), try this.

Loeb is a bad writer, see. But still, wicked animating job, I’d love to see a few more of these, though I’m sure it took a hell of a lot of time for even a short.

  1. That was a pretty cool clip. I was never a big fan of either ‘hero’ (not a collector of their series) but Wolverine and Hulk battles still always fascinated me. That short does make you/me wonder if Logan could survive being torn in half and if so, how his healing factor & regeneration would occur. I know he survived being blown up (blown inside-out?) and being burned down to a skeletal state, from which he was still able to fully regenerate, but being torn in two? I won’t say I’d like to see that, but I sure would like to know how the writers would handle him recovering from such an incident. Perhaps it would be akin to some of the more devastating injuries suffered by Manji in the Blade of the Immortal series, where severed limbs could still be reattached as long as he recovered them.

    • Wolverine totally gets torn in half in that Ultimate Hulk vs. Wolverine thing. I forget if it even got finished.

      He also, I am pretty sure, regenerated from a shiny skeleton in his own book. I think everyone is kind of embarrassed by that one and ignoring it though.

  2. I just followed the link to the Aniboom website and the clip is there in its entirety (Youtube version is edited and 2 mins shorter), although the fight still ends with Logan being torn in two by the Hulk, then jerking awake from a bad dream…or a memory?

    I actually read the book where Logan gets blown up and incinerated down to his Adamantium skeleton, and while trying to find out what happened to him discovering that this incident was not received very well by the comic book community, and particularly by fans of Wolverine.
