There have been multiple Hulks over the years, smart, dumb, professor, Joe Fixit, world breaker amongst others but what do you prefer? I was sad when I read the Indestructible Hulk and current Avengers series to see that they dumbed the Hulk down again.I like my Hulk talking, not the dumb childish one that only says smash. I have loved Hulk my whole life but when Planet Hulk happened and Hulk was actually talking and was in tandem with Banner I had never been happier with my Hulk. From Planet Hulk through World War Hulk it was awesome. Seeing this talkative more individual Hulk carry over into The Incredible Hulk, which became The Incredible Hulks was my favorite time reading a Hulk series. Events like Chaos War and Dark Reign had great tie ins and arcs that really shaped the books like Fall of the Hulks, World War Hulks and Dark Son were great. This is a great run not only because Hulk was an actual person and not a dumb, voiceless brute but because Skaar, the She Hulks and A-Bomb were part of the cast. The Jason Aaron Incredible Hulk series was great too sadly it only lasted 15 issues.
Planet Hulk....he showed a tenderness in that story I never knew existed. World War hulk started to annoy me near the end. A total disregard for the safety of anyone around him, he was arguably more menace than hero in that particular storyline. My other favourite is ruffalo Hulk from the Avengers. He pulled some seriously impressive stunts!
