While cinematic Hulk battled Iron Man in Hulkbuster Armor and a legion of Ultrons, his comic book counterpart has been on a crusade that comes to a Hulk-sized finale this week.

Bruce Banner evolved into the Extremis enhanced “Doc Green” and began a mission to take out all other Gamma powered heroes and villains in the Marvel Universe.

Doc Green may go down in Marvel history as “the strongest and smartest there is” but will he survive?

Omega Hulk by Gerry Duggan and Mark Bagley has brought a ton of guest stars including Deadpool and Kitty Pryde and fights with A-Bomb and Red Hulk.

As you can see from the Hulk #16 cover, it comes down to Doc Green to Maestro – the tyrant Hulk from Future Imperfect.

It’s Doc Green vs. Jen Walters, the fate of Lyra the She-Hulk and return of Betty Ross.
