Because Thanos is simply stronger than the Hulk. That statement is not made without controversy, but according to the film's writers in a MovieWeb article he didn't even need the stones, Avengers: Infinity War has brought up more than a few debates, but screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have now revealed that Thanos would've beat the Hulk ...

Yes, Stan Lee said he was inspired by Jekyll/Hyde and Frankenstein's Monster Lee explained this in an interview with Rolling Stone When you read the first issue of the Incredible Hulk, it doesn’t seem like a superhero title at all – it feels more in the vein of the monster comics you had been writing beforehand. How conscious was that direction? I was ...

They appear very evenly matched in terms of raw strength, unfortunately for Hulk, strength wasn't the deciding factor in this fight. Hulk lays out Thanos initially, and Thanos isn't able to push him off - until he's got something to brace against. In a contest of strength between two opponents of approximately equal strength, the winner is going to be the ...

No. The Hulk is not a mutant. He is a mutate. The distinction is subtle and for all intents and purposes more a matter of how a metahuman acquired their abilities, not necessarily a marker of power, puissance or capacity. The Hulk, a mutate, is one of the most powerful beings on the planet. Magneto, a mutant, has a vastly different power, but no less ...

I challenge the premise: The Hulk was created in a fairly mundane way. Just take one human, add a load of gamma radiation and you get a hulk. There were additional factors involved with Bruce Banner and other hulks that are not at all well understood. The Hulks we know about were all flukes, and you'd be thousands of times more likely to kill any subject ...

Ed Norton spoke to this issue in an interview with NPR. The very short answer is that he deeply disliked the "roadshow" aspect of marketing a major tentpole film and wasn't willing to compromise. “My feeling was that I experimented and experienced what I wanted to. I really, really enjoyed it. And yet, I looked at the balance of time in life that one ...

I was surprised to learn that there actually is some official word on this. Why no Hulk sequels? CinemaBlend.com reports on some commentary made by Joss Whedon on the set of Age of Ultron. According to Whedon, it was a decision made by Marvel Studios to keep Hulk an Avengers-exclusive character: The writer/director was discussing the use of Hulk in the ...

Because, quite frankly, it's a terrible idea. It would work against their intentions. Bruce Banner changes into The Hulk when he becomes angry. He can also change into The Hulk effectively at will (because he is always angry). Attempting to forcibly acquire or lock up Bruce Banner will only piss him off resulting in two things: Forcing a change into The ...

It depends on how you count. There are four separate characters called "Hulk". However, there have been several very different incarnations of The Hulk (Bruce Banner); there are also a few other gamma-powered characters that aren't called Hulk but have similar powers. The Original The original Hulk is, of course, Bruce Banner. His most popular, familiar, ...

Loki isn't a god. Odin says this explicitly in Thor: The Dark World: Odin: We are not Gods. We are born, we live, we die, just as humans do. Loki: Give or take five thousand years. Thor: The Dark World (2013) However, a more intuitive answer to the question would be: sure, but Hulk is also a god. The Asgardians are the source of Norse mythology on Earth; ...

TL;DR: The two DID fight in at least 3 different comics. Superman had 2 clear victories and one sorta-clear victory on points. Fight #1: 1981 "DC and MARVEL present: #28: SUPERMAN and SPIDER-MAN". That comic featured a fight between Hulk and Superman. Hulk gets all hulked-out... but can't hurt or move Superman. In the end, he's so exhausted, he converts ...

The simple answer is yes, but it varies how it is possible. In the one-shot comic "Hulk: The End" written by Peter David, Hulk is almost invincible. He survives a nuclear holocaust when no one else does. Although, Bruce Banner is not invincible. He dies and hulk realizes he cannot transform without dying also. From the synopsis: Suffering a ...

How do you control your Hulk(s) once you've created them? You ask why people seeking power don't create Hulks to increase their power. And it seems obvious that having an army of Hulks under one's control would do just that. But you're begging the question. Anything I can think of to control a Hulk would by definition have to be more powerful than a Hulk....

He allegedly didn't get along well with others We have made the decision to not bring Ed Norton back to portray the title role of Bruce Banner in the Avengers. Our decision is definitely not one based on monetary factors, but instead rooted in the need for an actor who embodies the creativity and collaborative spirit of our other talented cast members. ...

In a word, yes. In "Future Imperfect #2", the Hulk's neck gets snapped by the Maestro. He requires several days to fully recover. He also suffers a broken leg during the Secret Wars crossover event, fighting against Ultron

I believe it was the Reality Stone that he used.

Looking at the image below of Professor Hulk in Endgame, the strength of his glasses is very low, as there is no visible displacement of his temple as seen through the lenses. This means that (a) the glasses are purely ornamental, meant to provide a less frightening countenance, or (b) they are very low-strength reading glasses. The fact that he doesn't need ...

According to Ruffalo, the entire acting piece (voice, facial motion capture and body motion capture) was done by him with no outside assistance. The Hulk. That's all me that's me and and the animation team all working together but it's all I shot all. That's me acting, that's my voice, that's my face and it's my body moving around ...

Well as per Marvel's Ultimate Wolverine vs Hulk comic book series, when Wolverine is hired to kill Hulk (who is in Tibet), Hulk tears Wolverine in half (thats right). He throws the legs 4 miles up the mountain. Even with this amount of huge physical damage Wolverine is still alive and using his keen senses finds his missing body parts. He does so by ...

I disagree that it's new footage. The argument about different actors is null here, as the Hulk is facing away from the camera in the looped footage, probably for that reason. I took snapshots from both The Incredible Hulk (2008) and The Avengers to compare them side-by-side, and it's the same shot. The only difference is the one shown in The Avengers is ...

No; he's taking a stand against being used for fighting only Banner and Hulk have a complex relationship. This has been explored and developed in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Avengers 1: Banner must learn to control The Hulk Avengers 2: The Hulk realises he's being used and that he's seen as a monster, decides to hijack his being and runs off to Sakaar ...

As we see in the 2012 Avengers film, SHIELD wants Bruce Banner's scientific expertise, and it also wants Hulk to be available to smash any threats to humanity. On both counts, they need Banner's willing cooperation. They are not likely to get it if they permanently lock him in some sort of high-tech dungeon -- leaving aside the question of whether they can ...

There are roughly 180 gamma powered mutates in the Marvel universe... If we have a look at the Marvel wiki for Gamma Ray Exposure, we can see a list of 176 individual characters who received their powers through exposure to gamma radiation. But to be fair, a lot of these characters are from alternate earths and timelines and such (mostly Banners and Blonskys)...

No. Hulk doesn't respect the rules of physics, true - he grows in mass without any intake of matter. His muscles (and again, mass) change in tensile strength, power, and size based upon his emotional state. His pants, though none of his other clothes, are invulnerable. Hulk has no need for 'physics'. He can even regenerate significant portions of his ...

No, he does not depend on oxygen to survive. Or more correctly, he does not require an external oxygen source to survive. According to Marvel Universe The Hulk's body also has a gland that makes an "oxygenated per fluorocarbon emulsion", which creates pressure in the Hulk's lungs and effectively lets him breathe underwater and move quickly between ...

In my answer to another question about vibranium here (about vibranium boots allowing you to jump from greater heights) there is a quote about how vibranium can absorb kinetic energy. So in that sense it would be a better cage. But the one flaw is that it can only absorb a finite amount. With many of us knowing that the Hulk's strength is incredible (and ...

In Old Man Logan (which is kind of a What-If? story, although it’s probably got its own universe number by now), Wolverine So if we take that as canon, yup, Wolverine can beat the Hulk.

Failure is a relative term. The Super Soldier program in the Marvel Cinematic Universe did create notable successes including Captain America. He was everything the military wanted in a soldier; Smart, strong, fast, durable, an asset both tactically and strategically. Unfortunately, they were only able to produce one. The military will spend money on ...
