HulkThis popular Marvel Comics’ character initially appeared in the first issue of The Incredible Hulk in 1962. He went on to feature in other titles, such as The Fantastic Four in 1963 and, in the same year, he became a founding member of the Avengers team of superheroes.
A successful television series in the 1970s broadened the character's appeal beyond comic-book aficionados to mainstream audiences. This eventually led to the character’s appearance on the big screen in 2003’s The Hulk and 2008’s The Incredible Hulk.
As one of the most recognizable Marvel characters, Hulk has generated a wide variety of toys, including the popular kids’ gift, LEGO® playsets with Hulk action minifigures.
Hulk, uncontrollable green monster and scientist, Dr. Bruce BannerDr. Robert Bruce Banner is a quiet, reserved and rather feeble physicist. Following exposure to gamma rays, he is transformed into the Hulk, an excessively muscular, green-skinned giant with extraordinary strength.
Banner and the Hulk exist in the same individual, with the latter only manifesting itself when the former is subjected to high levels of stress. Once Banner becomes Hulk, he embarks on destructive rages, using his seemingly limitless physical strength to wreak havoc.
