Hulk – Gray | Comics

Physicist Bruce Banner pays a visit to world's renowned psychologist and long time friend Leonard Samson, who is also a gamma powered superhero of his own rights. For years, Doc Samson has been the most supportive friend that Banner ever had and despite their differences; they always watched each other’s back in every awry situation.

And mostly, he is one of the few people Banner knows who could actually understand the Banner/Hulk dilemma. As he stopped by at Samson’s place, he re-collects the old memories of that time when his life was turned upside down after the accident that caught him in the middle of the experimental explosion of the Gamma Bomb while trying to save the teenager Rick Jones, who had no idea of the experiment.

Initially, his superiors and all the military personnel thought him to be dead for credible reasons yet he miraculously survived the nuclear holocaust. But after a couple of hours he transformed into the incredible monster that always lived in the deepest corner of his psyche and instead of being green he was gray at first.

He went on a wild rampage and tried to seek redemption to his love of life Betty Ross, the daughter of General "Thunderbolt" Ross, which did not went very well since the army was already in search of him and General Ross believed him to be a huge threat. After having a brief skirmish with the armed forces, Hulk faces an Avenger member simply known as the Golden Avenger; Iron Man.

Batman – Dark Victory | Comics

Janice Porter has become the new District Attorney in Dent's absence and working alongside Commissioner James Gordon. A mysterious serial killer called the "Hungman" starts terrorizing the Gotham City by hanging corrupt police officers. Batman interrogates Edward Nygma but even The Riddler has not the slightest idea about who the killer is or who it might be.

At some point in the beginning, Two-Face was the prime suspect but even he was not responsible for these murders. A young circus acrobat Dick Grayson, who lost his parents to a mob battle that started due to circumstances of the "Hungman" killer, is later adopted by Batman to be his crime-fighting partner.

So, young Dick becomes his new trusty sidekick; Robin, The Boy Wonder. At the nick of time Commissioner Jim Gordon is saved by Two-Face from being hanged by the killer, who in fact was not a corrupted cop. Harvey Dent recruits The Joker, Scarecrow, The Penguin, The Riddler, Poison Ivy, Mr. Freeze, The Mad Hatter and Solomon Grundy to his gang and instead of being clear, the mystery grows even gritty and darker by each passing moment.
