Off My Mind: Why Doesn't Hulk Ever Have a Mustache?
by Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero on
Have you ever seen him shave?
You might say that since Bruce Banner doesn't have a mustache, Hulk shouldn't either. I do recall a period of time when Bruce was on the run and started getting pretty scruffy (back when he was calling himself "Mr. Green" and was talking to "Mr. Blue" on his computer). When Bruce changed, Hulk was as clean shaven as our intern Lemon.
Also, let's take Red Hulk into consideration. Hopefully this won't be a spoiler for you but Red Hulk's identity has been revealed. In Hulk #23, there was even a two-page spread showing the transformation.

Where does Thunderbolt Ross' mustache go? You can't say that Hulks can't grow facial hair because in the future as the Maestro, Hulk has a pretty full beard going on.
What makes Hulk grow facial hair. I've never seen Hulk shaving. Is his hair stronger than normal hair? Would he need a special razor in order to shave (maybe Wolverine could use his claws to help out).
Since Hulk's transformation has a lot to do with his emotional state and psyche, there could be something there involved. Mustaches and facial hair are sometimes seen as representing an evil character. Could it be that Hulk and Red Hulk don't see themselves as "evil" and Maestro knows he's a mean son of a bitch?
What are your thoughts on mustaches? Do you think Hulk should ever have one? Would you like to see other characters sporting them?
(A special thanks to Joey and Tom Selleck for making that first image possible and for bringing tears of laughter to my eyes).
