Joe Fixit #3

Joe Fixit #3 continues to explore the time when the Hulk became a Las Vegas enforcer in a pinstripe suit. Picking up events following last month's cliffhanger, Fixit (dosed with mind-control drugs from the Kingpin) runs wild in the casino only to stop suddenly (far more suddenly than one might have guessed) at one point be it from Spider-Man pleading with him or the inner monologue between the current Hulk persona and Dr. Bruce Banner. Either way, the rampage stops but things don't necessarily turn out better for Banner.

The comic also offers an example of an early run-in between Spider-Man, the Hulk, and the Absorbing Man with a simple attempt at breakfast for the scientist goes horribly wrong. Enjoyable enough, even if we don't get much movement on the main arc here and the focus feels a bit all over the place in terms of the flashback, the suddenly resolved (at least for now) storyline, and the inner battle within Banner's mind.
