Marvel Comics has been instrumental for the creation of greatly entertaining fictional superheroes, notably the X-Men, in which Wolverine is one of the members. Aside from the venerated team of mutant in the X-Men, Marvel Comics also have a brawny, earth-smashing, chest-beating, destruction and mauling specialist in the name of Hulk.
First appeared in 1962, Hulk, as we know him, actually is Robert Bruce Banner. Over the years of the comic series, Hulk has been portrayed differently by different writers but there tends to be a common theme among them. Chief among them is the fact that Banner was exposed to radiation from a gamma bomb explosion. Later he found himself in a hospital but he seemed to have been unscathed. That night however, he was transformed into a heavily muscular giant who tore down walls and escape. After that a search party was assembled and a soldier dubbed the otherwise unknown creature as a “Hulk,” and since then he was known by such moniker.
Basically, it has been portrayed that Banner would transform into Hulk, a green, mutant, humanoid, monster when he is fuming with rage. This however, is involuntary on his part. For the length and duration of the Hulk series, the character has been depicted to have battled with villains in a classic action filled mauling and smashing method. The concept put forward by Marvel Comics found itself to have been deeply endeared to the people around the world and this is why there are lot of remakes and different takes and portrayal of the superhero character by some artists. Here are some of the incredible Hulk illustrations and digital paintings courtesy of different creatives around the world. Check them out and enjoy!
