Cartoons Comics & Toons
HulkThe Hulk, often called the Incredible Hulk, is a Marvel Comics superhero. Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, he first appeared in Incredible Hulk v1 #1 (May 1962).
The Hulk is the alter ego of Dr. Robert Bruce Banner, a genius in nuclear physics. As a result of exposure to gamma radiation, Banner often becomes one of a number of large, superhumanly strong green or grey creatures.
Although the Hulk is classified as a superhero, he and Banner share a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde-like relationship. In his most well-known incarnation, the Hulk has little intelligence or self-control and can cause great destruction. As a result, he has been hunted by the military and other superheroes and Banner considers the Hulk a curse.
In recent decades, comic book writers have portrayed the character as a symbol of inner rage and Freudian repression. The Hulk's existence has been explained as an after-effect of child abuse and latent multiple personality disorder.
HulkHulk (2003) is a movie based on the comic book series The Incredible Hulk published by Marvel Comics. It was directed by Ang Lee and stars Eric Bana, Jennifer Connelly, Sam Elliott, Josh Lucas, and Nick Nolte. The movie was not well-received by audiences and experienced a second-weekend box office drop of 70%, the second-largest drop ever recorded for a movie that opened as the top box office draw its opening week. This was reportedly due to negative word-of-mouth in response to what many considered a misleading advertising campaign and the use of a CGI Hulk. Others praised the film's action sequences and technical effects, but felt the overall pacing was much too slow and dramatic.
Many fans of the comics also felt that the filmmakers reimagined the Hulk character in a manner that failed to grasp his appeal, changing him from a symbol of frustration and pent-up anger into the passive victim of parental abuse. While the abuse aspect had been present in the comic since the 1990s under writer Peter David, there it was building on an already well-established character and was part of a much more complex storyline. While not a box office bomb, the film fell well short of Universal's financial expectations. Despite this, however, the movie was given positive reviews by a thin majority of critics. The website Rotten Tomatoes currently provides a 60% "Fresh" rating for the film.
