A Walk Through Time With Hulk

June 11, 2008 09:34:54 GMT


This coming Friday, June 13, Universal Pictures will debut their latest superhero movie, "The Incredible Hulk", to the public. Bringing a strong team of filmmaker to develop the latest green-beast-turned-hero, the studio promise to present a new, explosive and action-packed story about one of the most popular superheroes of our time. Yet, before rushing down to the theaters to be blown away by it, it seems to be appropriate to walk back through time and revisit the facts and fads about Hulk himself.

Throughout the years, key details about this temperamental fictional character have been evolving along with the changing of time. Be it in the characterization, the trigger of his transformation, and even the story plot, they all have undergone several adjustments and all due to the involvement of numerous people handling the development of Hulk. Still, regardless the necessity to synchronize between the comic and this movie adaptation, the evolution of Bruce Banner and his alter ego is worth getting a special highlight.
