I wasn't going to say anything about this, but... OK. Just for the record? You can't jump to the moon.
Moon
Earth and moon
The moon is, averaged out, 238,857 miles away. You would have to travel at 1000 miles an hour, 24 hours a day, to get there in 10 days. On top of that, you would have to travel at terminal velocity just to escape earth's gravity. And even then - even then? The moon would have to be in exactly the right place. It's not just "up". It's up and over. Or down. Or you know, in orbit. So, what have we learned? We've learned that the current run of Hulk comics is not being written for people who want even hints of vague realism in their comics. It's pure magical speculative fantasy, where you can jump to the moon and possibly even ride a talking unicorn who farts out rainbow-coloured balloons filled with cream pudding. Now, there's nothing wrong with that. Really, there isn't. Hell, one of the later Star Wars movies had a sonic bomb that sucked up all the noise in space, and nobody complained about that. Some people like realism, some people enjoy worlds of pure escapist fantasy. Some people even enjoy writing in italics. But just, for the record? So future generations can know that this issue was thought about by the minds of our time?
You can't jump to the moon. Unless you're a cow, and you have the assistance of a cat and a fiddle.
