The Black Hulk Revisited

Last year I wrote a post about the possibility of a Black Hulk. It was all comedy because I kinda figured that no one would really publish the Hulk as an angry Black man. It seemed kind of redundant. I mean, if there's a Black Hulk then what happens to Luke Cage? Now it seems that Marvel Comics has decided to...in their Ultimate Universe Comics. The issue in question, ULTIMATE COMICS AVENGERS 2 #3, written by Mark Millar,  is not out yet but the cover is. I'd be interested in hearing what you think about an African-American Hulk. Doesn't he kind of look like a cross between Mr. T and Luke Cage in this picture?
It also looks like half the Ultimate Avengers are African-American now.

This looks pretty interesting but he does look like Mr T

I will admit that I have my reservations about this. I will give it a try to see what they do with the Black Hulk. But I am not too keen on the idea. Maybe it's my general aversion to the Ultimate Universe on a whole.

They didn't have to hood him out. And what's with the Spike-Lee-Do-The-Right-Thing-Radio-Raheem-Ring? I'll give it a look though.

yea, he didn't need to be hooded out, but let's see if there's a reason for that

Mike Tyson. LOL There's no way Bulk could be a brutal hulk without being a stereotype. Which means he's just going to be a big, strong black guy. As you said, Marvel already has enough to be redundant. Why not make a super-smart black superhero like Mr. Fantastic? I do love the Ultimate series though.
