First and foremost, the Hulk is my favorite Marvel character. That being said, I hate it when threads pop up like Hulk vs Superman, who would win? Or Hulk Vs Thanos, who would win? The reason I hate these threads is because of course, in the comics and the way the writers have developed these characters, of course the Hulk can't beat either Superman or Thanos. Guess what? The Hulk also can't beat Mighty Mouse or Goku either. I despise these ridiculously amped up power level characters with a passion, which puts Superman #1 on my list because he is the granddaddy of ridiculously amped up characters. When a writer creates a character like this it is the the equivalent of setting your character in a video game to INVINCIBLE and walking through all the levels and stages until you win the game and then claiming yourself as a bad ass afterwards.
The reason why I love the Hulk as a character is the same reason why I love the Undertaker character as a wrestler or Godzilla as a monster. It is the same reason why all of those characters appeal to young children probably more than any other character; they are relentless and they will not quit until they beat you. The abomination was the first person to T.K.O. the Hulk. What happened in the rematch? The abomination got his ass kicked. What makes the Hulk so popular and what makes him resonate with his fans is not just him being the strongest there is (we all know there are other characters who have a base strength level higher than the Hulk). What makes the Hulk resonate with fans is they know the Hulk will always come back at you HARDER and STRONGER after you beat him. Hulk fans are not afraid of or ashamed to see the Hulk take a loss just as long as it fits the story and at the end the Hulk comes back and overcomes. In comparison to Superman, Thanos, Mighty Mouse and Goku fans who assign their characters "cosmic" and "eternal" or "omnipotent" powers and then claim them as bad asses when they just stomp through everything and everyone. Those characters are BORING and UNINTERESTING.
When you grow up you are dealing with all kinds of fear and insecurities. How can a character like the Hulk not appeal to kids like this? You knock him down but he always gets back up and when he does he comes back even stronger!
So, to all the Hulk fans, don't waste your time in these threads going back and forth with these dudes.
Let Mighty Mouse win.
