On the positive side, Waid's smart writing and sense of character really helps establish this new take on Bruce Banner coming to grips with his "chronic incurable condition" and trying to go to work for SHIELD to mitigate the damage he does whilst Hulked-out. The art didn't do it for me, however, and not due to any lack of talent for the lead penciller, it's just I felt his gritty style didn't really complement the larger-than-life aspects of the main character or the huge set-piece battles.

The Marvel NOW! Hulk book is titled Indestructible Hulk, and it is a great new status quo for the character.
The 3 main premises of the character are:
* Hulk Smashes, Banner builds: being one of the smartest characters in the Marvel universe, Bruce Banner is set to create world changing/Nobel price worthy technological advances as a way to compensate all the destruction the Hulk causes.
* Banner has accepted that the Hulk is an chronic condition that must be managed, just as diabetes, cancer, or multiple sclerosis (his words).
* Hulk should no longer be seen as a bomb set to explode at any time, but as a cannon that can be directed.
To accomplish the above, Banner offers his services as The Hulk to S.H.I.E.L.D. in exchange for an equipped lab, access to the latest research and technology, and a team of researchers to work for him.

The premise is amazing, the delivery is not as great. We don't get to see much of the "Banner builds" side of the equation, and the Iron Man encounter seems to fulfill no role other than give the fans a battle to talk about. However, I did enjoy the book and am reading volumes 2 and 3 with the expectation that the writers can do more with such a good character state.

I wanted to like Bruce more than I did. A couple of gratuitous butt shots that need to Hawkeyed. O wells.
