World War Hulk was the first major cross over story line to be published by Marvel comics since the conclusion of the Civil War arc. World War Hulk consisted of a five issue main series, written by Greg Pak and illustrated by John Romita Jr., as well as three other limited series, World War Hulk: Frontline, World War Hulk: Gamma Corps, and World War Hulk: X-Men, and appearances in other regular Marvel series.
World War Hulk picks up from where the one-shot World War Hulk Prologue: World Breaker finishes. The plot is a culmination of a series of events spanning the preceding 12-15 issues of Incredible Hulk, in which the Illuminati (Reed Richards, Tony Stark, Black Bolt and Dr. Strange), trick Hulk into being sent into space and subsequently exiled to the planet Sakaar, as seen in the Planet Hulk series.
