The Hulk, often called “The Incredible Hulk”, is a fictional character, a superhero that appears in comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, the character first appeared in The Incredible Hulk #1 (May 1962). The Hulk is cast as an emotional and impulsive alter ego of the withdrawn and reserved physicist Dr. Bruce Banner. The Hulk appears shortly after Banner was accidentally exposed to the blast of a test detonation of a gamma bomb he invented. Subsequently, Banner involuntarily transforms into the Hulk, depicted as a giant, raging monster, leading to extreme complications in Banner’s life. Hulk’s creation was inspired by a combination of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and Frankenstein.

While the color of the character’s skin varied during the course of its publication history, the Hulk is most often depicted as green. As the Hulk, Banner is capable of immense feats of strength, which increases with his feelings of rage and anger. Anger is a common trigger of Banner’s transformation. However, any significant emotional stress can do the same; for example, terror when he is in mortal danger. A common storyline is the pursuit of both Banner and the Hulk by the police or the armed forces, due to the destruction he causes.
