Thor and Hulk will, at long last, go on real date in Marvel Comics' Avengers #11.
The publisher's solicitations for December 2018 confirm the issue will be the finale of the “Avengers World Tour” storyline. The main plot will involve Earth's Mightiest Heroes holding a superhero summit, inviting the most powerful nations to help deal with the fallout from Avengers #700. But a subplot will continue the surprising romance blossoming between Thor and Jennifer Walters, aka the Hulk.
Longtime members of the Avengers, Thor and Hulk have had difficult years recently. Thor lost his arm and his original hammer, and only recently regained enough honor to actually go by the name “Thor” again. Meanwhile, Jennifer has had trouble controlling her Hulk form, with the death of Bruce Banner and lingering PTSD making her a more fearsome version of the monster.
The mutual attraction has been a consistent presence in the relaunched series, and now writer Jason Aaron is allowing the two characters to attempt to make a relationship work. Check out the full solicitation text below:
