I know ads for totally absurd merchandise are common place in any Marvel comic, but seriously: What is this? No, really? What is it? These are my best guesses. Salad Tongs. Melon baller.

It’s been awhile since I checked in on the comic merchandise at Toys R Us. Look what I found!: HULKEY POKEY! I like that he smashes, spins and “dances.” It’s like “if you can call that dancing.” I need to see this thing in action.

All you guys with your fancy video game systems can keep your GTA 4. The best game to ever hit the market doesn’t require a console: Hell yeah! Who will operate on Hulk? Iron Man and Spider-Man, apparently.
