Skaar is a Marvel Comics character co-created by writer Greg Pak and artist John Romita, Jr. Skaar is the son of the Hulk and Caiera the Oldstrong, conceived on Planet Sakaar during the Planet Hulk storyline. After appearing at the end of World War Hulk #5, Skaar starred in the Skaar: Son of Hulk series, launched in 2008 by Pak and artist Ron Garney. After arriving on Earth, Skaar co-starred in the Incredible Hulk series beginning with the Son of Banner storyline in issue #601 and coming to a climax at the end of the World War Hulks storyline in issue #611.

“Big sword, big fists, always angry and ready to decapitate, Skaar is my kind of fellow. Mr. Pak has spun an intense tale to grab Hulk lovers’ attention and fans of a certain muscle-bound Cimmerian. It’s just a matter of time before father returns to see how much trouble his irradiated offspring has caused. I can’t wait.”
— Joseph Szadkowski, Washington Times

Rave reviews for “Incredible Hulk” #611

“Incredible Hulk” #611, written by Greg Pak, pencilled by Paul Pelletier, and featuring the much-anticipated showdown between the Hulk and his savage son Skaar, has already nabbed a slew of rave reviews. Here’s a taste:

“Incredible Hulk #611 was about as close to perfect as a Hulk comic can get. It’s got everything I love, great action, powerful emotions and big scope. Pak is quite simply a perfect writer for the Hulk and his work here is nothing short of brilliant on every single page. He and Pelletier make an incredible team that work serious magic.”

“After two years, I’m ecstatic to have Banner’s King Hulk persona back, one who actually remembers what he lost in his failed quest for vengeance. It makes the rivalry between father and son carry much more meaning than it did during Planet Skaar. But surprisingly, the most emotionally arresting portions of the issue involve Hulk/Banner’s recollections of his father’s abuses. This is hardly a new element of the Hulk mythos, but it’s one Pak mines to excellent effect throughout the script. ”
“The ending was very touching; it was a very satisfying conclusion to the past few years’ worth of Hulk’s stories. Readers on board from the beginning will walk away pleased as events from Planet Hulk, Son of Hulk, and World War Hulk come to a closure not only for us but also the characters we cherish.”
