Does a lot of stage-setting stuff, will have to read sequels or hardcover compilation to judge how it goes.

A bunch of superheroes band together to form a sort of corporate/government defense team, including Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Wasp, Giant Man... Very slick with tons of references to this real world, circa early 2000s. Features cameos by Bush Jr. & Shannon Elizabeth (remember her?). Have never read a Hulk comic -- is he always so much like Hyde in League of Extraordinary Gentlemen? And new favorite dude is the Ultimates version Thor -- former mental patient/radical activist/son of Odin.
