Planet Hulk - Part 6 - Armageddon

Incredible Hulk (1999) 104 & 105

~ Peace has come to Sakaar and rebuilding. Hulk is not sure that he should stay among the people because he still fears that he is the Worldbreaker prophesied. Caiera convinces him that he still has a place here. As a king, a husband, and a father.

Miek does remind Hulk of his anger toward those who exiled him here but he feels he can do something on Sakaar.  He sets to the beginnings of peace and making treaties with the surrounding peoples sending Korg, Hiroim, and the newest ally Arch-E. The capital is being rebuilt after the destruction of the fighting. 

Hulk takes Elloe and Miek to relieve the problems of the Spikes. They tow their ships back into space and release those still captive on the moon. With the Spikes return to space, the spirits of those consumed by them are released and many on the surface get catharsis.

There appears to be peace for Hulk now, and love. But that peace is fleeting. The shuttle that brought Hulk is now being used as a float of sorts to commemorate Hulk’s arrival to Sakaar. The message from the Illuminati begins to play as well as an ominous alarm indicating the the warp core is compromised. Hulk attempts to hurl the shuttle away and protect his wife, Caiera.

The capital city is destroyed. And the detonation of the warp core combined with the previous damage to the tectonic plates has caused an upheaval of the world that the people will not survive. As most of the Warbound were off on missions when the shuttle exploded they are unharmed but they all have lost people close to them. Elloe and Miek use the stone ship to recover survivors. Korg, Hiroim, Brood and Arch-E make it to the ship with contingents from every people of Sakaar. 

Caiera did not survive the blast and Hulk is the only survivor of ground zero.  Hulk can feel that the blast has made him stronger than he ever has been. But all he wants to do is die. He wants his people back, he wants his queen back. The anger that Miek tried to kindle is now aflame. The Illuminati have destroyed his adopted world. “The only way to be sure.” Hulk is angry.

Hulk has a ship and Arch-E knows how to reach Earth. Hulk and his Warbound will know vengeance. Hulk will declare War. 

"...Men of stone grasp hands...
...And sear them together in the lava of mount Krona
They sit for days...
...Fasting and singing...
...Until their hands crack apart.
And new rocklings spill forth.

I would have...asked you for this honor..."

Hiroim had the enormous strength of trained Shadow Warrior and could lift up to a ton. At the time of his death he possessed the Old Power which was passed onto him by Caiera. This power has yet to be fully revealed, although it is known that the wielder of the Old Power could render their body more durable than stone and draw increased strength from the planet itself. Hiroim’s skills in hand-to-hand combat ranked him among Sakaar’s top warriors while his strategic abilities made him one Sakaar’s most formidable field commanders. Traditional Shadow weapons include the javelin, and a seven-foot-long staff with blades running along its entire length. #marvel #hulk #hiroim #hiroimtheshamed #warbound #worldwarhulk #planethulk #priest #shadowwarrior #teamoftheday

And on the last words I screamed and stood up and exclaimed that this is my ultimate ship and I gonna sink with it. Why didn’t I read Warbound yet?! *goes to do so*

Anyways, Hiroim and Korg are really gread, even if this pairing never came to my mind.
