* CerebusRetcon: The entire reason the Illuminati decide to send the Hulk into space is because he accidentally killed some civilians during a fight with the Thing. The fight in question occurred in ''Comicbook/FantasticFour'' #533-535, and actually came to a peaceful resolution, with no civilian casualties mentioned at the time. There were even jokey moments showing civilians ''placing bets'' on the outcome of the fight, a far cry from the tragic incident the event would later be painted as.

The ending of ''Planet Hulk'' led directly into the ''[[ComicBook/WorldWarHulk]]'' storyline. ''ComicBook/SecretWars2015'' features a ''Planet Hulk'' mini-series in which [[ComicBook/CaptainAmerica Steve Rogers]] and Devil Dinosaur journey into Greenland, a region of Battleworld populated by Hulks.

The storyline centers on [[ComicBook/IncredibleHulk The Hulk]], naturally, as he is sent into space by [[ComicBook/IronMan Tony Stark]], [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Reed Richards]], ComicBook/DoctorStrange, and [[ComicBook/TheInhumans Black Bolt]]. After a fight with the Thing left Las Vegas in ruins and about two dozen dead (later {{retcon}}ned), it was decided that he was too dangerous for Earth, and that they would send him to a peaceful planet with no intelligent life so he couldn't hurt anyone, and finally [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor get his wish of being left alone.]]

Of course, [[UnspokenPlanGuarantee everything goes horribly wrong.]] The Hulk, understandably upset at this turn of events, damages his space ship, sending it off course and into a wormhole. He then crash lands on the alien planet Sakaar, which is very full of intelligent life, and none of it is friendly. Weakened by his trip through the "Great Portal", as the locals call it, the Hulk is implanted with an obedience disk, which forces him to obey commands and sent to the great arena to fight for his freedom.

The storyline is very popular among Hulk fans as it gives the green giant some very real character development for the first time in years, whereas previously the focus had been on Bruce Banner (or Banner in the Hulk's body).

Planet Hulk was later adapted into [[WesternAnimation/PlanetHulk an animated film]]. The film was very condensed, changing several aspects of the story and removing a few characters completely, but is still considered one of the better Marvel Comics animated adaptations, receiving considerable critical praise. It's also notable for being one of the more violent Marvel movies, depicting blood and fairly graphic deaths.

''ComicBook/SecretWars2015'' features a series of the same name and inspired by it, in which [[ComicBook/CaptainAmerica Steve Rogers]] and Devil Dinosaur journey into Greenland, a region of Battleworld populated by Hulks.

** The Brood is an especially vivid example of this: she looks ''incredibly'' evil and monstrous, arguably more so than a xenomorph, yet is one of Hulk's staunchest, most reasonable allies, and one of only two who never starts shit with him in any way. She even plays with some kids.
