|Real Name||Bruce Banner|
Bruce Banner is a hero from Earth that becomes the green giant Hulk. As Hulk he has virtually limitless strength that increases with his anger. On Earth his battles were legendary, and tales of them stretched even to Asgard. He fought alongside other superheroes such as Thor, Iron Man, Mister Fantastic, Doctor Strange, and Black Bolt. Thor went back to Asgard where his tales reached Beta Ray Bill.
However, Hulk grew too powerful causing the other heroes to fear his strength. The Illuminati captured Hulk aboard a S.H.I.E.L.D. Space Shuttle. Iron Man left a message apologizing to Bruce. Unfortunately, Bruce had transformed into Hulk who heard the message. Hulk damaged the ship and they fell through the Great Portal while bombarded with gamma rays.
