The Hulk is very interesting superhero. The two personalities that clash, The Hulk and Bruce Banner, make the character very engaging. There isn’t really anyone like him. He’s not a vigilante like Batman or an American icon like Captain America. He’s just a guy dealing with some pretty major internal struggles. Over the years, the character has become pretty popular due to his appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Given his popularity, we figured it would be a great time to pay tribute to the Green Goliath. Here is a list of 10 facts that you probably didn’t know about The Hulk.
This may come as a surprise to most people, but the Hulk was canceled early on in its series run. After six issues, Marvel was forced to cancel the series due to an unenthusiastic fan base. The early stories of the Hulk were not well received, due to the inconsistencies in the storylines. After the cancellation, the character started to show up in other comics, and eventually made a guest appearance in the Avengers series, which led to the characters return to form in the comic book world.
Bill Bixby played Bruce Banner in the original Incredible Hulk show, but when he transformed into the Green Giant, he was played by Lou Ferrigno. The bodybuilder was in the ranks of Arnold Schwarzenegger when he was discovered. His 285lb stature made him the perfect fit for the Hulk. From the original television series to The Avengers (2012), Ferrigno has appeared in all of the Hulk’s on screen adaptations, in one way or another.
