Marvel.com interviews Pak, Parker, and Loeb about “Fall of the Hulks”

Marvel.com has interviewed writers Greg Pak, Jeph Loeb, and Jeff Parker about which of the Hulks is the greatest as they prepare for the upcoming “Fall of the Hulks” event. An excerpt, in which the writers pick unexpected champions:

Which Hulk is the greatest there is?
Jeph Loeb: It’s ironic, but it’s Banner who makes the Green Hulk the greatest. The idea of a man who was at the top of his field, had people who listened to him, was respected, and lost it all by sacrificing himself for another-Rick Jones-makes the monster all that more tragic. He lost everything. His job. The woman he loved. His family.
While the Hulk has had many different personalities, they are all really different voices in Banner’s head. The child, the angry teenager, the concerned adult-all of them. It makes him complex, even though sometimes he talks like he isn’t and just smashes things. And sometimes complex is the most dangerous Hulk of all.
Jeff Parker: I call Skaar! And Skaar is easily the most metal of all Hulks. He slays dragons, he has an axe, and whenever faced with a dilemma, he will always make the most metal decision possible, like throwing Juggernaut off the planet or dooming billions to Galactus. He’s like a UniMind composed of Ronnie James Dio, Ozzy, and all of Judas Priest.
Greg Pak: Look, I know Jeph and Jeff are whispering sweet nothings into your ear about the mightiness of the Green Hulk and his savage son Skaar. And I can appreciate their wishful dreamings-after all, the Hulk’s my favorite comic book character of all time and I’ve spent the last couple of years lovingly chronicling the insane adventures of his bouncing barbarian boy. But let’s face facts: the contest is already over. And the Red Hulk won. In INCREDIBLE HULK #600, he took down the Green Hulk-took down the “Strongest One There Is!”-by touching him. Okay? He grabbed the guy and drained him of all his insane gamma-fueled power.
Red wins.
