Wolverine. Never really liked the Hulk. Logan just seems more interesting.

Hulk because he's used more sparingly so I look forward to seeing him whereas I can come across Wolverine without even trying or wanting to.

Plus, Waid's run on Hulk is just so much fun with Hulk time traveling, fighting dinosaurs and just generally having a "SMASHing" good time. Also, Wolverine is a bit too serious sometimes. I kind of get sick of him being a jerk all the time.

They're both very interesting/complex characters though.

I've never liked the concept of Hulk. I didn't used to like Wolverine either, but he's grown on me. The only arc I've read where I enjoyed Hulk was Planet Hulk, but I enjoy-ish most of the Wolverine showings I've read.

Wolverine, but both are two comics most complex, nuanced, and tortured characters.

I'd pick up Wolverine comic before a Hulk one honestly. Love both of them but Wolvie always appealed to me more.

Hulk, personally. I've always liked Bruce Banner.

It is hard to pick whom they both have respectable qualities. I can't compare them, but I can say that if I were to pick a costume I'd choose wolverine.

"Origin" by Paul Jenkins, Wolverine by Chris Claremont, "Weapon X" by Barry Windsor Smith, and "Logan" by Brian K. Vaughn are the stories I'd recommend for someone getting started with Wolverine. For a current series, get Savage Wolverine.

Hulk is Much more interesting, diverse and cool IMO

Wolverine(when written well, which is rare these days) is very cool too.

Also i'm very happy that most users say they prefer wolverine while giving credit to hulk for being cool too, a few mouths back and there would have been A LOT of 'Hulks Sucks" comments.

I don't think Hulk is more interesting as Wolverines origin is a million times better than Hulk's as Wolverine has always had mystery surrounding him while Hulk is what you see is what you get kinda like Superman ,Which is no knock on either character as all three have had great story's about them .

The only main problem i have with Hulk is how often he is upgraded (world breaker) plus the Hulk clones like Rulk & so forth really makes Hulk seem less important .Also the whole strongest there is annoys me to no end since its clearly not true lol .

Wolverine's origin is never defined and it gets ridiculous over some time. Hulk is one of the best fictional characters ever created IMO, and not because of his Strongest there is Thing(which is true, potentially hulk is physically the strongest).

I'm tried of explaining, so here's my sum up.

Hulk is one of the greatest fictional characters ever.

at first glance Hulk might seem like a boring character, people often confuse him with a plot devise too, i mean a big green man who smashes things? sounds kinda repetitive, but really, it's not. Truth be told, you can't like hulk without liking banner, because it's the dynamic that really draws you to the character. Banner is a a wimp, he is really weak physically, yet he is put in charge of one of the most powerful beings on earth, and how does one deal with that? I mean how can this weakling control such a powerful beast ? thing is, banner is the personification of Will and Strength of character.

Hulk is everything banner has locked up his entire life, and the funny thing is, he never gives in, he always knows that giving in to the rage might cause some harm to others around him. this shows how powerful he really is, the "Strongest there is" line which hulk frequently uses is tied to banner, because it's his will power and Raw emotions which gives the Hulk power. We've all been there, we've all wanted to cut loose before, there is always that voice that keeps telling you that you really want to punch someone in the face. now imagine that only multiply it by a 100, and you might understand banners situation. Banner and Hulk hate each other, which means that in reality Banner hates himself, or at least This "aspect" of himself. Hulk could fight the biggest baddest villain in the Universe, and still the greatest Foe he ever had is himself, this "jekyll and Hyde" concept doesn't always work, but it does here, because Banner's Sympathy is what makes hulks rage so awesome, and it's hulks rage what makes banner sympathetic.

But the greatest thing is that Hulk himself isn't a monster either, he never hurts the innocents, and there have been multiple times where he has protected the people who had called him a monster, this shows that even at his worst, hulk is by all means a hero. This all comes from bruce banner. you can imagine his mind as a huge hallway of doors, with each door holding it's one secret(aka Hulk). did that image since in? good, because it's important. Hulk is a type of character you can't get bored with, which is funny because most people would disagree with me, but then again most people haven't read his stories and have no idea what they are talking about.

The writers did a very good job of giving Banner and personality disorder because that way we can have many versions of the hulk which manifests based on the different aspects of banner, therefore giving each hulk his own distinctive look and personality. We have Joe Fixit who represents banners wild, Brash teenage self, and we also have the traditional Savage Hulk who has a heart of gold yes is always angry and misunderstood. My personal favorite would be Green scar, a Noble hero who would sacrifice himself for his family and friends any day of the week. This brings me to my next point, with a character like hulk, he can be written in any genre. it could Be dark and gritty or it could be light hearted and fun. and IT would work, because when you have a character like superman, he best works best in fun light-hearted stories, but with hulk, that doesn't matter.

i've gone a bit of track here but the point is that hulk is an awesome character, the kind that has substance and depth. People can say hulk is boring but if that were true he wouldn't have had an ongoing for 12 F*cking years.

"Then why do you suddenly look scared? Maybe you see that you could be ten times stronger than Hulk, and it still would not matter. Not when all Hulk has to do is become ten times as mad!!"

@theacidskull:

Wolverine's origin is never defined and it gets ridiculous over some time.

His childhood was pretty definitely explained in Origin by Paul Jenkins. Only things that are loose are parts of his adulthood.

But there are always new wrinkles added in by writers. Like what Gillen's doing in his Origins take on Wolverine.

Oh and Hulk for me. He's made my top 10 favourite heroes list for numerous reasons whilst Logan does make it into the top 50 but that's not close to Hulk's position.

If I remember what I've read correctly, Origin II is supposed to explain the mysterious part of Logan's early adulthood right after he killed his first girlfriend in the mining camp he grew up in and how he first met Sabreotooth. Logan's history is well defined for the most part, but you can't explain it all. Being mysterious is part of the character (though not a huge component for me.)

Don't get me wrong Man, I love logan and i think he is great, but Marvel is doing all the wrong moves with him

Imagine if hulks origin kept changing with tiny tweaks. something like " Banner was dosed by gamma radiation...Or was he? Find out next in an all new adventure that reveals hulks new origin! and his true love! who is no in fact betty!"

see what I mean?

Being mysterious has always been a component to Logan, so Marvel does tend to play around with his background to try keep that mystery enticing. But yeah, I can see how it can be a little aggravating at times.

They should just keep it as a mystery, not need to keep revealing small specks of it you know? it makes it more interesting.

@lvenger:

Yup. They are trying to fill in historical gaps, but their success with it is iffy at times. Origin by Paul Jenkins was a poignant and very well written origin for Wolverine's childhood in my opinion, but then you have utter disasters like Daniel Way and Jeph Loeb's Origin series. Honestly hope Marvel doesn't mess up with Origin II.

I think it's fine that parts of his origin have been revealed, but Marvel should just leave the origin thing alone for a good while. Play with other aspects of his character for a change. Being mysterious wasn't the only thing that got Logan so many fans, and you can't keep recycling the same stories with him all the time.
