was born in 1962 by the duo of wonders such as Stan Lee on the subject and Jack Kirby on the drawings. The name Hulk in the original American means big, clumsy, grotesque individual and in fact this character is the very symbol of brute force. The story of Hulk it begins
when the American scientist Bruce Banner is commissioned by the American defense minister to test a gamma-ray bomb in the New Mexico desert. It happened, however, that during the countdown, before the explosion, the young Rick Jones, unaware of everything, wandered around that area, so with a heroic gesture, the scientist Bruce Banner, threw himself on the boy's body, throwing him into a moat and exposing yourself to the explosion of gamma rays. Bruce Banner, despite the violence of the radiation, survived, but something incredible happened to him. During the sunset, Dr. Banner turned into the incredible Hulk, a giant with gray skin and superhuman strength, while at the first light of dawn he returned to take his human form. Initially, therefore, the transformation only took place at sunset, but with the passage of time, at any time of day, if Dr. Banner suffered some strong emotion, like a fit of anger, he lost consciousness of himself and transformed into the incredible Hulk this time with the color of green skin, exploding in all his brute strength a hundredfold with anger. Due to this transformation, Hulk he is considered a danger to society, so the scientist Bruce Banner keeps secret what he considers his strong handicap (even here the superhero has super problems). Hulk is then persecuted by men and in particular by the military forces commanded by the relentless general Ross.
Hulk, as mentioned, it has various transformations. It can be green or gray. In its transformation with gray skin it reaches a height of 2,00 meters for a weight of about 400 kg, while in its transformation with green skin it reaches a height of about 2,15 meters and a weight of about 475 Kg of muscles.The superpowers of the Incredible Hulk are given by an extraordinary physical strength, superior even to that of the Thing, the man of stone of the Fantastic Four. Thanks to the enormous power in his legs, the Hulk can make prodigious leaps, managing to cover distances of several kilometers in a short time. In addition, the wounds that could be fatal for us, for him can heal in a short time as it has a high healing power.
For a short time the scientist Bruce Banner was able to control his split personality, managing to enter the consciousness of the Hulk even during his transformation, so he managed to reach a truce with the American armed forces who have stopped chasing him. In this time Hulk was part of the Marvel superhero group "The Avengers". But it happened that Dr. Leonard, a psychiatrist, expert in gamma rays, managed to capture the Hulk and separate the psyche of Bruce Banner from that of the green-skinned giant, profoundly changing his ego. This caused very serious damage to the Hulk's personality which, regressing, has returned to become a huge danger for humanity. Another psychiatrist instead, Dr. Samson managed to integrate Bruce Banner's intelligence with that of Hulk, thus creating an intelligent Hulk called "professor" Hulk.
Hulk together with Dr. Strange, a sorcerer expert in magical arts and Namor, the prince of Atlantis, form the group of defenders and periodically unite to oppose the forces of evil and in particular Yandroth, a powerful wizard who threatens existence. of the earth.Although defeated by the trio, the perfidious Yandroth on the verge of death has placed a curse on their heads.
In the 80s, the incredible Hulk he had a great notoriety above all thanks to the American TV series dedicated to him, but which had a different plot from the Marvel superhero. In fact, Dr. Banner, (played by the talented Bill Bixby) is a scientist who tries to study how gamma rays can affect the strength of an individual in a state of anger. However, it is hit by a radiation and then turns into the green-skinned monster, the Incredible Hulk (played by the legendary and hypertrophic Lou Ferrigno, award-winning bodybuilder).
After the accident, which also causes the death of his wife, Bruce Banner is deemed dead, therefore obsessed with his split personality, he decides to flee and change his name, calling himself David.The only one who suspects his true identity is journalist Jack McGee, who pursues him in search of a passable scoop.
