Stan Lee answered this question in an interview with Eric Spitznagel of Vanity Fair (March, 2011). You can read the transcript on ComicBookMovie.com. VF: If it weren’t for the Comics Code, would the Hulk’s pants have ripped off like his shirt? Stan Lee: I guess it probably would have. So occasionally the Code did some good things. VF: Did you ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

It depends on what form of adamantium. Proto-Adamantium - present in Captain America's shield, considered the absolute most invulnerable item in all of existence. True Adamantium - present in Wolverine Secondary Adamantium - Hulk can break/warp it. Beta Adamantium Adamantium (Earth-1610) - Hulk breaks a needle made of adamantium here. Adamantium (Earth-691) ...

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, ...

Jeff Parker, the current writer of Marvel Comics' Hulk, replied to this question via Twitter by saying: The explanation I use: during transformation he pulls in ambient gamma energy and converts it to mass. So that's the reasoning that Jeff Parker uses when he writes the Bruce Banner Hulk.

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 ...

Their conversation is (paraphrased): Hulk: Lucky I didn't hurt anyone. Guard: Luck had nothing to do with it, you were awake and aiming away from them. That is the last we see of the Hulk before

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 painful heart ...

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....

Yes, there are important differences between the two characters despite their similarities. At the basic level, both the Red Hulk (former General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross) and the Green Hulk (Dr. Bruce Banner) are very similar. They both have vast superhuman strength and are arguably two of the strongest mortals on Earth. They have an incredible rate of ...

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 ...

The basic premise of Hulk is that when Bruce Banner becomes angry, harmed, or life is in danger, he turns into the Hulk. At the end of the Incredible Hulk (2008), it is shown that Bruce can willfully turn into the Hulk. The scene below we see Dr. Banner meditating, at peace. Soon after, his eyes turn green. He's starting to turn into the Hulk. This shows ...

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 ...
