The History Of Incredible Hulk

Superhero Comics Marvel DC Entertainment have created some of the most memorable superheros in history. From Incredible Hulk to The X-Men to Batman, DC has a richly rewarding comic universe. In particular, the Batman family of comics has some of my favorite comic book superheros. Whether you’re a new reader or a long time veteran, these Batman stories will make you think back to when you first read comics and relive your favorite moments.

The Basics

When I was a kid, my favorite comic was Batman. He was the dark knight, a vigilante protector of Gotham City, a foul mouthed criminal mastermind, and a love interest for Rachel Dawes. This made him more of a hero to me than supervising superheroes. After reading a few Batman comics, I could not imagine living the life of an average citizen without a Batarang. That, plus the fact that he always seemed to be around when my friends and I needed him, made Batman a much more beloved character for me than supervising superheroes.

Incredible Hulk is another classic comic book superhero. This time, he’s more of an anti-hero than a fighter, but that doesn’t diminish his popularity. In this version, Dr. David Banner creates an android known as Banner. Once created, he goes on a quest to conquer the world but ends up battling the Hulk.

Famous Comics

There are also a lot of Incredible Hulk stories written, with various artists, about the character. It’s always great to see how far science has come and how far artists can push the boundaries of graphic novels. When you combine that with some of the fantastic artwork done by Bill Finger and Jack Kirby, it’s easy to understand why this character has stayed so popular. Unlike other comics of the era, Incredible Hulk is something you can identify with and relate to on a fundamental level.

One of my all time favorite comic book series is Incredible Hulk. This series features one of the most well rounded and colorful characters in Marvel history. Hulk’s personality is often referred to as being angry, big, and tough, but underneath those layers is a glum, gentle giant. It’s this sense of emotion that makes Incredible Hulk stand out from every other comic that the character has been in. The writers have crafted an incredible storyline with a number of characters that are both hilarious and unforgettable.

Best Characters

During the time that the Incredible Hulk was written and penciled, there were literally dozens of other legendary comic books being produced. Incredible Hulk, though, stands out above the rest because of the depth of characters and the writing that puts so much heart into the characters. The Incredible Hulk television show, as well, is an absolutely amazing and clever way to combine this fantastic comic with a large dose of humor.

Other Incredible Hulk stories have included various other characters from the Marvel Universe. Some of these have even been written as stand alone pieces of fiction, which is quite an impressive feat in and of itself. What I’m interested in, however, is the possibility of future storylines featuring other members of the Marvel Family. With the success of the TV show, it seems as though we may see an ongoing series featuring Betty Brissler, Dr. Curt Connor, Dr. Bruce Banner, or any number of other Marvel Heroes.


We’ve recently seen a comic come to life on the big screen in the form of Captain America: The First Avenger. Though The First Avenger is not strictly a comic, it does feature some of the same fundamentals that all great comic book stories use. That means a good story and great visuals. The First Avenger, based on the story of World War II spy agent Sam Ginns, is both gritty and beautiful at the same time. It’s a story that deals with everything you would expect from a modern day super hero like Cap, but also has enough historical detail to make it interesting and unique. If you enjoy reading modern comic books, but are more interested in the visual aspects of them, then The First Avenger is likely a comic book that you’ll want to check out.
