The long-simmering destiny of Young Avengers' Hulkling will finally be fulfilled in summer event series Empyre, according to Marvel.

In a promotional image released with art by Jeff Dekal, the half-Kree, half-Skrull Hulking is featured - with his parents, Captain Mar-Vell and the Skrull princess Aneke, in the background.

In December's Empyre lead-in one-shot Incoming, Hulking is revealed to have taken up the name Dorrek VIII (taking after his grandfather Dorrek VII), and leads a unified Kree/Skrull force.

For years since his introduction in Young Avengers, Hulking's destiny was to someday unite the Kree and the Skrull (check) and conquer Earth.
