The Week in Villainy: April 8-14, 2007
Who's Up and Who's ThwartedVapor and X-Ray: This entry is a little overdue, but with the next issue of She-Hulk coming out next week, TWIV felt it imperitive to get this one out there.
Siblings Ann and Jimmy Darnell (Vapor and X-Ray, respectively) were the only two Hulk foes to escape the Hulkbusters stronghold on the S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier last month in She-Hulk #17.
[MARVEL] After spending days hunting down and capturing some of the Hulkâ€™s toughest foes, She-Hulk and the Hulkbuster unit are returning to the SHIELD Helicarrier for some much-deserved rest. The new SHIELD director, in fact, is there in person to debrief them. However, not all of the foes theyâ€™ve rounded up are going to sit quietly in their cells.
Thanks to something called Project Achilles, every other Hulk baddie was neutralized-- including Abomination, Wendigo, and the Darnell sibs' other U-Foes teammates.
Writer Dan Slott took special care to make it clear that these two were the only two to escape. That's a very good indication of Big Things planned for these two villains.
Another major movement of note in the same book was Zzzax, who was thwarted by a lame device on loan from a twenty-three-year-old movie.
