Although i love Savage Hulk i am currently reading Bill Mantlo's run with the Intelligent Hulk and it's brilliant.

Think i still slightly prefer Savage but Intelligent has been a pleasant surprise as i didn't know whether i'd like it.

@ZombieBigfoot: I actually Kinda liked that arc it was something different & some what creative in my opinion

@z1co80: I hear you but its just idk... he was having convos with banner & dooms daughter & now...

I liked Greg Pack's Hulk, I really did. Hulk finally found a compromise with Banner, he finally accepted who he was. But the other day I read Avengers Assemble with Thanos as a major threat and I was greatly disappointed. The Hulk speaks like 4 year old again(((( Why they make him retarded again is beyond me..... I like him smash things without taking then

Most people who watch movies don't care to pick up a comic.

Lots of writers are going green

they recycle everything

I findes well that the old Hulk does not disappear.

It meant waiting even once the over 1000 Hulks in Banner subconscious.

I'm concerned he could ruig often weckseln personality.

The Hulk-the-beast could come ruig sometimes free.

Think it would be intresting if a good hulk Semite himself in the fight would turn into an evil Hulk weckseln and then the sides would.

Needs but a good author. After all, to the Hulks yes differ not only in the look and the attitude. The-beast-Hulk one may like to note the joy-be finally free. Or the despair he must resist in Banner head.

Maybe they made him dumb because Red Hulk is too smart. So they have to balance it out a bit.

Even though both are genius' in their fields.

Scew it, Marvel dropped the ball on this.

Hulk just wasent meant to be smart. His main quality is strength when the accident happened. Something had to be sacrificed or it just wouldnt work.

I don't really like Hulk being dumb, but dumb Hulk is better for heart-warming stories. Does that make sense? Lol.

#19 Posted by BiteMe-Fanboy (8589 posts) - - Show Bio

YES!!!!!!!!! Hulk is dumb again.

Best Hulk = Savage Hulk.

Smart Hulk is boring.

#20 Posted by Overseer (458 posts) - - Show Bio

And so once again Marvel undos character development for the sake of iconografy. Spoony was right. NOTHING IN COMICS EVER CHANGES!

Smart Hulk = Better, more respected Hulk.

I feel he appeals to more people who may not even like Hulk when he's smart.

He doesn't even need to be smart, just not retarded. Let him form sentences and have more personality for a while.

.....Comic books are a lot like soap operas or Pro-wrestling sometimes you have to job out so others can shine..

Intelligent hulk is over powered. He might as well be "Beast" With stronger powers.

"Stupid" Hulk allows writers to write a complex character where as Bruce he is a genius but frail and as the hulk he is powerful and stupid.

I prefer a dumber Hulk it which allows a better dynamic with Bruce Banner. 
I hate it when they make Hulk smart. I also absolutely hated it when they tried to make Banner the bad one. 
Hulk should be the result of Banners suppressed rage and shouldn't be treated as two separate beings even if Hulk thinks he is.

Because, due to the popularity of the movies and the corporate mantra of trying to make the most money right now, this very moment, that's how the public knows, thinks of, remembers and want the Hulk to be: Stupid.

It's a sad, shameful thing, really.

They'll change him back to a smart one. I have faith. This dumb personality won't last long, trust me :D

I don't think of Hulk as dumb, just relies on animal instinct and is to busy being angry to care about making complete sentences

I find smart Hulk stories incredibly stupid in their beginning premise. As Hulk only gets strong when he is mind numbingly angry... He is not supposed to be stupid. Just blindly raging

A stupid Hulk makes no sense please bring back the smart hulk one that can defend himself and at least fight on the right side. Yeah the childish tantrums get old fast.

Because the popular characters are not allowed, in essence, to evolve. Every so often they have to revert to their most popular version.

Superman is the most popular DC yet nobody remembers that at one time he was faster than a speeding bullet, leaped over tall buildings and was stronger than a damn train (locomotive). Hulks most popular version (which never changed) is he gets stronger the more angry he gets. His intelligence isn't really cared about (by me atleast) because I know he's driven by rage
