Major rumble happens, but the dams burst and flood anyway... BUT!... Hulk and mythical bird crash out up through the earth, leaving a giant plug-hole, and the water drains away. D'Oh!
Well, I've looked and looked, and can find NO redeeming features in this story. OK, firstly, so major issues to do with reality.
- A dozen reporters are allowed inside the SHIELD cordon, and suddenly Spider-Man appears for all to see. All the other journalists are accounted for under armed protection, and Peter Parker is the only one missing. Clue? Perhaps!
- Hulk and the bird travel half way round the world in a day? Crashing through underground tunnels at 500 miles an hour, as fast as a 747? Not!
- Enough water to flood the Savage Land just drains away in minutes, without ripping away all the trees, top-soil, animals. No way!
- Peter spends his time rescuing goats, rather than bothering to first take a look at the 'refrigerating' dams built (in very quick time) by Roxxon, who he knows all along are a bunch of crooks. In fact, no-one from SHIELD can tell a fridge from an ice melter! Wow! I figure that if the melting rate increased when the devices were turned on, I'd want to check them out first!
One half-web. Sexy Shanna deserves better.
