|Real Name||Bruce Banner|
|AKA||The Incredible Hulk|
Hulk is a fictional character from the popular Marvel Comics title called The Incredible Hulk. He is a monster and a superhero. He was even a member of the Avengers. He is a very popular character, and one young boy even had a poster of him hanging on his wall. The character known as Wolverine made his first appearance in issue number 180 of Hulk's very own comic book series.
As the fictional story goes, Dr. Bruce Banner was exposed to a massive amount of gamma radiation which caused him to transform into a hideous and terrifying green creature known as "The Incredible Hulk," whenever he would experience negative emotions such as fear or anger. He was constantly pursued by General Ross, who was the father of Betty Ross, the love of Bruce's life. As the Hulk, Bruce had no control over his own actions, so he could be at times dangerous, although typically he was quite heroic. Over the years Hulk made several enemies aside from General Ross. Among his worst foes were the Leader and Abomination. Hulk even finds his way into the ranks of the Avengers, as a valued member. In the late '70s, a television version of the character was adapted starring Bill Bixby and Lou Furrigno. Ted Cassidy was the narrator.
