Joe Fixit #2

The exploration of the Hulk's time living in Las Vegas as Joe Fixit continues in the second issue of the series where the Kingpin's second interaction with the super-powered leg breaker goes better than the first when he uses a bit of mind control to send the Hulk rampaging through the casino. Yeah, that's probably not going to be good for business. Thankfully there's a web-crawler in town.

The issue spins its wheels for the first-half, including a superfluous interaction between Peter Parker and the Kingpin (and later a more impressive Spidey punch on the big man), before setting up Fixit's brainwashing (which it doesn't attempt to explain) and finally giving us Spider-Man versus the Hulk which goes through final panel of this issue still yet unsettled. Fans might get a kick out of certain panels, but this feels mostly like fluff pushing out the story into more issues than needed.
