As the second Hulk film screened across the world Marvel quite sensibly released a batch of tie-in books and trade paperback collections to maximise exposure and hopefully cater to fans who want to follow up with the comics experience. Under the Marvel Platinum/Definitive Editions umbrella this treasury of tales reprints some landmarks by name-creators that whilst far from being “definitive”, do provide a snapshot of just how very well that simplistic man-into-monster concept can work.
Taking up a major portion of the book is the complete Future Imperfect miniseries originally released in December 1992-January 1993. Written by David and illustrated by George Perez it has the Hulk travel into the future to defeat his older, nastier self “The Maestro”, a tyrannical despot who has enslaved humanity.
