Guide to the Hulks please!

#1 Edited by Bezza (4031 posts) - - Show Bio

to someone still re-aquainting himself with the comic world, 30 years after he regularly read DC/Marvel comics (and fairly new to Comic Vine), I'm confused by all these Hulks. I know who WW Hulk is now, but please, who was "World Breaker Hulk" and what comics can I find him in and also, what or who is "savage Hulk" and the "Grey Hulk". Is Savage Hulk just the word for the normal Hulk?

Final question, what sort of power level is the current Hulk at? Assume its below WWH levels. Thanks and sorry if this is all meat and drink to you Hulk experts!!

Savage Hulk is the hulk most commonly seen. barely makes words out but is crazy strong but more or less wants to be left alone or trying to powderized whoever/whatever made him mad. world breaker hulk is a prophesy from planet sakaar, that is the planet that from planet hulk that leads up to world war hulk. it was prophesied that he would destroy the world, hence the world breaker title. basically green scar hulk, the hulk with a cunning mind that focuses his rage and thinks tactically, became so angry that he was releasing massives amounts of radiation, he took a few steps and the world was shattering and if he did anything more the world would have been destroyed from the power output. Grey hulk is another incarnation of hulk. while savage hulk represents his anger Grey Hulk also known as joe fixit represents the wild teen that banner never really got to be and he's usually concerned with making money and being generally devious, not evil per se but kinda like a guy you would expect to run into if you were in vegas. Hulks power level is in the 100+ class, he's been seen lifting several billion tons, smashing planets, fighting Sentry which is the marvel version of superman only crazy and with telepathy and ressurection powers and his power only increases with rage as im sure you've heard thousands of times

i wrote what you asked on the wiki page a long time ago so i hope you don't mind me copying it. So basically you have to know that some specific events led to banner creating new versions of the hulk that would represent different parts of his personality.

The Gray Hulk/Joe Fixit (Mr. Fixit)

The first appearance/emergence of the Hulk was gray and only transformed from Banner to Hulk during the night. Later,Thinking the Hulk dead, this incarnation of Hulk was able to escape to Las Vegas, working as a 'leg-breaker' for a casino owner. He remained free of Banner for months and developed a life all his own until the transformations returned and he was fired from his job. He is capable of lifting 70 tons. The Grey Hulk is cunning, intelligent , arrogant , crafty, hedonistic, and distant with a hidden conscience. The Leader once stated that the Grey Hulk was strongest during the night of the new moon and weakest during full moon. However, this was removed when the Hulks night based transformation was removed. even though having the weakest base level. the grey hulk represents the wild teenage side of bruce banner, which might explain his perverted and deviant personality.


This is the 'traditional' Hulk personality. He has been compared to a child and resembles sometimes the intellect of a person with a really low IQ, talking of himself in the 3rd person, mostly in fragmented sentences. This Hulk typically only wants to be left alone. This is one of the most powerful incarnations of the hulk. The savage Hulks strength is near-limitless, but at a calm state he can lift up to 100 tons. In appearance, The savage Hulk is a giant heavily muscled ape like creature. The Savage Hulk represents the anger of the abused child when banner was a little kid.

King Hulk/World War Hulk

This version of the Hulk was a combination of efforts between Banner and the more intelligent of the green personalities. Working with Banner's intelligence and cooperation, Hulk took control of the planet Sakaar, bringing peace to the land, marrying and even conceiving two children, Skaar and Hiro-Kala. After his kingdom was demolished, he returned to Earth to wage war on the Illuminati. The Green Scar is a very skilled fighter since on Sakaar he used various weapons as a gladiator in the arena. This particular version of the hulk also works with banner, and they use many strategies to bring down his opponents, which makes him a much more formidable foe and a great leader. The Green scar or The world War Hulk has displayed his brute force through many feats, he is by far the strongest hulk there has ever been, He was able to defeat the Fantastic Four, the X-men/X-force (simultaneously), the members of the illumination (although Black Bolt was revealed to be a skrull), Red Hulk, the unstopable Juggernaut, the Sentry himself and he even held planet Sakaar from falling apart with brute strength.

World Breaker Hulk

When this Hulk reaches a certain level of anger, he enters world breaker mode. In this state, the Hulk emits mass amounts of gamma radiation and becomes very, very strong. The World Breaker hulk Power was deployed during his war against the earth, he became so mad that he multiple earthquakes in North America and almost completely destroyed the eastern seaboard along with the earth with a few steps. We saw the return of the World Breaker Hulk in Vegas, when he was fighting against Armageddon, but fortunately the Hulk was able to hold back his power. Without holding back, Hulk was able to easily destroy the planet in the dark dimension and absorb gamma radiation to the point where he became 80 feet for a short period of time.

Reed Richards later states that Banner is actively suppressing the aspect of himself dubbed the Green Scar (later renamed by the Green Scar persona himself as the World-Breaker).

Thank you all, so basically WB Hulk was WW Hulk, it was a phrase coined in the Planet Hulk and WW Hulk novels (I've re-read them now).

This edit will also create new pages on Comic Vine for:
