Comparisons with Other Hulk Cartoons
The Incredible Hulk
The Incredible Hulk is a gamma mutated creature who is
Bruce Banner in a primal state. He exhibits a childlike
nature and does not know why he is being persecuted in
the manner he is. He desires to be left alone, but he
is forever loyal to those he believes are his friends. The
Hulk relishes in the fact that he is the strongest mortal
on Earth and despises the 'weakness' of his alter-ego.
The Hulk possesses an almost unlimitless strength that
increases with anger. His powerful legs allow him to
leap great distances, and his durablility makes him
impervious to conventional weapons. In a relaxed state,
however, the Hulk turns back into Bruce Banner.
How He Differs from the Comic Book Version:
In the comic book, there are actually two 'Hulks' which
represent Bruce Banner's other personalities (see
Bruce's profile). The first Hulk
that appeared is a grey behemoth who called himself
'Mr. Fixit' at one point. Mr. Fixit represents a side of
Bruce Banner whose emotions are left unchecked. He retains
most of Banner's intelligence and is very cunning in
battle. Whereas Bruce is selfless and noble, Mr. Fixit is
selfish and desires all the luxuries he thinks he
deserves as one of the strongest beings on the planet.
The familiar green-skinned Hulk is Bruce's other
personality. He is virtually identical to his animated
version. The more primal green-skinned Hulk is actually
stronger than Mr. Fixit. When Mr. Fixit was the more
dominant personality, Bruce's transformations were
triggered by the sun rising/setting. Bruce would turn into
the Hulk only at night, except for those occasions where
he would actually 'let' Mr. Fixit be the dominant persona.
Like the animated series, the transformation into the
green Hulk is triggered by extreme stress. Other powers
that the Hulk is known to possess include rapid healing,
homing ability, and the ability to see astral forms.
