Marvel Introduces first Korean-American Hulk, Amadeus Cho
The Marvel comic-book world is still expanding into new realms and this week the publisher announced that the new “Totally Awesome Hulk,” will be Amadeus Cho. Set in the new Marvel Universe, Amadeus Cho will be taking on the role starting this December in TOTALLY AWESOME HULK #1.
Legendary and storied Hulk writer Greg Pak (Planet Hulk) returns to the fan-favorite character he created as he powers up to become the newest green goliath. Pam will be joined by the popular artist Frank Cho (Mighty Avengers, Savage Wolverine) in the series.
Marvel went on to describe the new Hulk by stating, “The mystery behind the new Hulk’s identity has been revealed! But what has happened to the original Hulk, Bruce Banner in the previous eight months? All will be revealed – and the answers will surprise you! But one thing is for certain – Amadeus Cho is a completely different kind of Hulk. Not tormented, not conflicted. Just a giant green wrecking machine who loves being the Hulk! What could possibly go wrong?”
“Come December, the one true Hulk will be a 19-year-old Korean-America “Boy Genius” who is going to carry the burden of being the Hulk like it weighs a feather,” says Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso. “He’s going to love every minute of it. In this new series, we are going to lean hard into the fantasy aspects of being the Hulk. It can’t be all bad, can it?”
TOTALLY AWESOME HULK #1 will hit stores in December, written by GREG PAK with Art & Cover by FRANK CHO. The Variant Cover will also be created by FRANK CHO.
