Storyline

The Incredible Hulk is often viewed as being similar to the story of Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. The tale begins when top scientist Bruce Banner is accidently hit by gamma rays. He is conducting an experiment and needs to save a youngster who has wandered into the testing area; he saves the teen but pays the price for his heroics.

The gamma rays change Bruce Banner in a way that nobody could have predicted. In the original stories it was sundown that caused him to transform into a hideous monster with super-strength; in later versions of the story his transformation is triggered by emotional states. Thus you have the Hulk’s most famous catchphrase, “don’t make me angry, you wouldn’t like me when I’m angry”.

The Hulk would usually use his powers only for good but occasionally he would lose control of his emotions and he would be unable to stop the transformation into the Hulk. In most versions of the story the Hulk is far less intelligent and reasonable then Bruce Banner; he is the type of monster that likes to hit first and ask questions later. The fact that his strength almost has no limits means that he is not the type of character who you want to get on the bad side of.

The Good Guys

The main good guy in the Incredible Hulk is a physicist called Dr Bruce Banner. He becomes exposed to a gamma bomb during an experiment and this means that he now turns into a mutant who has incredible strength. This change is triggered initially by the sun going down but in later stories it occurs when he is Bruce is experiencing high emotional states.

Betty Ross Banner is the Bruce Banner’s wife. She was later transformed into Mr. Blue and was able to assist her husband who was now the Hulk.

Doc Samson is Bruce Banner’s psychiatrist. He became exposed to some of the Hulk’s gamma rays and this meant that he too has some superhuman powers.

Doctor Strange is leader of the Avengers and he looks upon the hulk as if he were his son. Doctor Strange is described as the greatest sorcerer on Earth.

She-Hulk is Bruce’s cousin and she developed similar abilities after he needed to provide her with an emergency blood transfusion.

The Bad Guys

It is hard to believe that anyone would be silly enough to become an enemy of the Incredible Hulk; such people do exist though.

The Absorbing Man is able drank a special liquid created by the god Loki. He is now able to absorb the properties of anything he touches. This ability to become anything he touches makes him a scary dude, but luckily he is no match for the Incredible Hulk.

Hulkbusters are a special military outfit which has been created for only one purpose; to capture and kill the Hulk.

Abomination was originally created by a witch’s coven. He is able to heal himself and has great strength and speed. The Hulk does not find Abomination to be much of a challenge.

The Collector is an ancient being who travels the universe looking for things to collect. He decides that he wants to add the Hulk to his collection and that was his first mistake.

John Ryker believes that the Hulk’s blood can somehow cure his wife who is dying. He ruthlessly chases after the Hulk hoping to somehow capture him. The fact that he is a military general makes the task a bit easier, but not much.
