Marvel's new Hulk is Korean-American character Amadeus Cho
As part of its All-New, All-Different initiative, Marvel is putting a new spin on the beloved Hulk. Starting with Totally Awesome Hulk #1, Bruce Banner will be stepping out of the Hulk role and passing the mantle to Korean-American Amadeus Cho.
Marvel fans are already familiar with Cho, who has appeared as a supporting character in various storylines for the last nine years, including World War Hulk. He is an orphaned genius who is constantly running away from people trying to kill him, which causes him to view the world with distrust. He does, however, view Hulk as an ally.
Cho will transform into the Totally Awesome Hulk with the help of a Korean-American creative duo. Greg Pak, the writer who created the character, will be joined by artist Frank Cho for Totally Awesome Hulk.
In an interview for Entertainment Weekly, Marvel's editor-in-chief Axel Alonso stated that, while Bruce Banner's story will continue, Cho will become the one and only Hulk from this point forward as the green mantle falls onto him.
