YMMV / World War Hulk

  • Like You Would Really Do It: "The Hulk is back. He's madder than he's ever been. And he's going to kill the Illuminati." By the end of the event, not a single one of the Illuminati was dead.
  • Memetic Mutation: "We're all fucked when Hulk comes back to Earth." The Planet Hulk storyline happened roughly simultaneously with Civil War. This became the third option when asked "whose side are you on" in the war: it's all moot because the Hulk is going to kill everyone soon enough.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Miek did not prevent the bomb from exploding and killing Caiera and the others, because he felt it was Hulk's destiny to be the Worldbreaker. Needless to say, when Hulk finds out, he is not amused.
  • Rooting for the Empire: While not being an actual villain, the Hulk is still the event's main antagonist and several readers were actively rooting for him to make the Illuminati pay. This trope also counts as an In-Universe example: as a soon as the Hulk reveals their actions, several civilians formed cheering mobs for him, in no small part to being annoyed at turn of events involving the Civil War.
