Zarquon's Flat Tire: Digitalstrange: Precision Boobery: The Hulk logic of that movie kind of bothered me.  I thought the point of Hulk was that he was uncontrollable rage, but then (after Banner just happens to putt-putt right up to where everyone is) he just decides to have it under control?  Then what's the trigger to his becoming Hulk, and why doesn't he come back down if he's not raging?

I'm sure one of you nerds has an answer. (^_^)

Banner is a seething pile of rage, he tried to disappear and learn to control it and has to some degree. When hurt or injured as happened on the Helicarrier it can slip out accidentally and that Hulk is bestial and uncontrollable, however he can choose to let the anger out and transform. That version of the Hulk recognizes friends and has some cognitive function. It's still somewhat violently impulsive (like when it punched Thor for no reason) but far less so.

I thought that was friendly "hell yeah buddy" shoulder tap. Just from the Hulk.


Or a, I remember you sucker punched me on the helicarrier. So ill just sucker punch you here.

Still a funny scene.

That recent trailer of IM3 does make me wonder about why Stark would make the Hulkbuster armor if he didn't intend to use it later though. Does he also have a ThorBuster armor in case he needs to take Thor down?

/yeah good luck with that
//remember the comic where he tried
///Thor was holding back in the past

Precision Boobery: Brainsick: when he 'Hulked Out' the first time, he'd been enraged (through the magic of the spear) to the point he lost control and the transformation started

I don't remember that.  Granted I was pretty blazed, but I thought the floor collapsed due to Hawkeye's attack and the pain and anger made Banner Hulk out.  He has such a lack of control that he tries to kill his allies.  Later on, he's actually pretty gentle.  All that still doesn't explain how he turns back to Banner.  When Stark woke up, it seems like the happiness and relief would have turned him back immediately.  I know they had to find some way to have Hulk on the team, and I understand that Stark gave Banner a new perspective, but the end Hulk seems completely unrelated to the beginning Hulk.  First he has almost zero control, then transforming is as simple as flexing a muscle.

Oh well, whatever, it's just a stupid movie (that I love).


To me it was obvious the spear was making everyone angry. That was Loki's whole plan, get everyone, especially Hulk, on the ship and have them fight. Banner even picked up the spear during the argument.

And Hulks control was clearly set up in the Ed Norton Hulk film, that is in the same continuity despite the actor change, where at the end he chooses to Hulk out and is able to "aim" his/Hulk anger at the baddie. So if he loses his temper and Hulks out he has no control. If he chooses to change he can retain control. It seems perfectly plausible to me, as plausible as anything can be in a superhero film.

Anyone that says "They should just film the story arc/graphic novel X" doesn't have a grasp of how good comic book movies are made. Adaptation is necessary. Bright skintight lycra doesn't film well. Character development must be drastically condensed into a handful of scenes. Good adaptation is hard and used to be rare but it's getting more common now.

It's a matter of controlling anger, rather than letting it control you. In The Avengers, when he 'Hulked Out' the first time, he'd been enraged (through the magic of the spear) to the point he lost control and the transformation started; the second time, he 'let the beast out' and was sort of...piloting it, I guess? When he says "I'm always angry" that's what he's explaining. He always has the potential to Hulk out, but he's learned to control it (usually).


/Just don't call him Mr. Fixit.

They couldn't do World War Hulk anyway.  They don't have the rights to half of the Illuminati
