The Incredible Hulk is a Marvel Comics character created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1962. Bruce Banner, a scientist, is accidently exposed to gamma rays during a nuclear test. Originally conceived as "Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde" type of character, the Hulk has changed much throughout the years. One theme, however, has stayed the same: the more angry the Hulk gets, the stronger he becomes. A being of pure rage, he's misunderstood and feared by everyone.
