So a big claim for WWH is that Hulk in the story owned Marvel Earth. Well, it is true. But people tend to forget all the plot devices and the fact that certain people didn't really stand a chance in the first place. Since originally Citizenbane coupled with my scans was going to do this, I'm going to cover the fights that Hulk just walked through and ones where he was saved due to a plot device myself.
Hulk defeated the X-Men.
Yes, Hulk beat the X-Men but considering the whole team was full of people who weren't threats, is it really an accomplishment? The only available powerhouses were Rockslide, Colossus, Strong Guy, Juggernaut and Warpath. And the only other people that was really capable of hurting Hulk was Cyclops and Wolverine.
Rockslide is a 70 tonner so of course he is no threat. Strong Guy got overloaded and Warpath is a 25 tonner. He could do nothing.
Cyclops- Max with visor on was enough to damage Hulk but not enough to stop him.
Colossus being the only 1 of 2 solid class 100 characters didn't do more than lay a few hits which did nothing and in the end got his arms bent.
Wolverine- Severely weaker than the Hulk and could do no lasting damage to Hulk, of course Wolverine would get brain damaged.
Juggernaut- The only real threat here but due to Charles' intervention asking him to stop, not only distracted Cain but then when he ended up running through a wall and not turning around when he could have despite Charles' pleas does not give Hulk the win.
Defeating Black Bolt
Black Bolt was a skrull which are typically weaker than their regular versions. Hulk did not beat the real thing so therefore the feat can be omitted.
Defeating Iron Man
Typically I would say Hulk can beat Iron Man, even in Hulkbuster armor, but here Tony prepped for the encounter and has an actual way to win. But did Hulk beat a prepped Iron Man? Nope. Iron Man's prep involved nanites designed to supress superhuman powers. When they were sabotaged, the opportunity to stop Hulk was altered and Tony then got owned. An outside plot device stopped Tony from defeating the Hulk in the story and allowed the story to move on.
Defeating Reed Richards
So in all of this mess, the best he could come up with is a fake light that imitates Sentry's aura to try and calm Hulk down? So he didn't have a teleportation device to BFR Hulk, a gamma energy siphoner, or some time of containment field lying around or he couldn't have made one? Good job, Reed, you deserved the beat down you got for being stupid. Oxymoron right there considering Reed could have and should have a better device lying around or he could have made a better one, especially if he had T'Challa helping him.
Despite Thing's best efforts he couldn't damage Hulk enough. He walked over him and Thing wasn't a threat.
Defeating She-Hulk and Ares.
More characters that weren't threats, nothing to really be proud of. It was the same for most people Hulk faced. No one could just simply stand up to him.
Defeating Dr. Strange
Then we get someone who can. Zom Strange. So while Zom Strange was battering Hulk beyond belief, a plot device comes in. Strange realizes he is slipping and stops fighting allowing Hulk to beat him. So Hulk beats a guy that was kicking his butt around who stops fighting. Not really a win.
Defeating Ghost Rider
Some even say he beat Ghost Rider. He handled GR at first only due to Blaze acting as a saftey. Ghost Rider went unhinged and then....ran off. He ran off because the Illuminati were guilty. So we build up this epic point to where he would have beaten Hulk...but he rides away. Not a win.
Some say Hulk beat Hercules in WWH....but what happened...wait for it....PLOT SHIELD!!! Hulk beat a Hercules who let him win. Whether you think Herc can't beat Hulk is irrelevant because the point is to show another instance of a fight involving a factor that let Hulk win...yet again.
Here it comes...the infamous Sentry face punching contest. So for starters, Sentry wasn't exactly at full stability. What that means is Sentry's powers wain a bit similar to Gladiator's but not to that degree. Sentry wanted Hulk to actually hit him in the beginning hence why he is saying more. Sentry's primary objective in that fight was to defeat Hulk but also to let go for once. He purposely let Hulk hit him so he could have a chance to let loose. He then proceeded to brawl with Hulk despite having multiple reactionary and speed feats that put Hulk's to shame. If Sentry was actually trying to take Banner down, Hulk wouldn't have had any chance to touch him. So, if you actually think this is a truly legit fight, then think again. Sentry was not only hampered, was willingly let Hulk bash him in the face, he still ended up stalemating him and both burned out, but it was Banner (not Hulk) still standing. That is until another plot device with Rick getting stabbed and Banner Hulking back out to become WBH etc.
So that's it for now. WWH in a nutshell for the big fights. I hope it cleared up any misconceptions about characters and the way the fights went down and if anyone tries to use some of these feats you now have the proper information to counter the misconstrued claims. And I do realize I might get flack for this from the Hulk fans buuuut I don't quite care.
