I am really a sucker for Marvel, besides to the dynamic story line, the twist in every character they create in the Marvel Universe. It’s interesting to know how it all began, on how they build up their character in different episodes of the story.
Just like the pure strength brute hulk, if you would think of it, he is just super strong nothing fancy, just hardcore strength nothing else. How simple his powers it may seem but there is a lot of twist under that green skin of his. Actually there is a lot of discoloration happened with this guy. He has two variations of Grey and the normal Green (if that’s normal). Wondering who’s the Red? We will get to that.
Grey Hulk – He is the alternate of the green (obviously). In alternate future where Bruce Banner was not exposed to Gamma Radiation he was within a High Council of scientist where he was a weapons designer. However on that alternate future, Bruce wants to be a mutant so he sold himself to Mikhail Rasputin, one of the Horsemen of Apocalypse wherein he conducts experiments which turned him to a Grey Hulk.
The Hulk – This is the normal hulk we see in the comics and even in movies. Banner was exposed to gamma radiation and became a mad green brute called hulk whenever he is under stress and circumstances that the other guy doesn’t want. Technically it is not due to gamma radiation why he became a Hulk, it is within Banner ever since. It just unleashed when he was radiated by gamma. There was a clue to this story, in the Marvel’s Avengers. This is when Tony and Bruce talking about what happened to Bruce, Tony is giving sentiment that with that amount of radiation Bruce could have been killed, but the Hulk saved him.
Who is the Red?
It is the Hulk busting general, Gen. Thunderbolt Ross. The one in the movie was Abomination a hired soldier assigned to eliminate the Hulk. In the TV series Ross wants the Hulk to be out of the way and claim the fame of a “good” Hulk but Captain America saved our Green Goliath friend when he discovered that Hulk became ravaged due to an implant in Bruce head. The creators of the character decide to keep the identity secret. Then it was revealed in the World War Hulk series that it was Thunderbolt Ross.
Now you know who are these Hulks are, the question where we will start reading?
