Rulk

Ok is his name really Rulk? If so am I the only one who refuses to call him this dumb sh#t?

#2 Posted by pixelized (62883 posts) - - Show Bio

He should have been Black so we can call him Bulk

#3 Posted by AtPhantom (14521 posts) - - Show Bio

Yes, his name is rulk, he's been referred by that name in the hulk comics.

Yes, the name is incredibly stupid, but it's easier than to type red hulk.

wait, so he appeared in hulk #1, but i have that issue. i don't see him anywhere in the comic...O_O

He needs a name of his own now. Just calling him Red Hulk or Rulk for short is dumb. Even if the name is something cheesey like Fury or Rage or something, at least its a name.

Blue Hulk. Look forward to it in 2010 only how Jeph Loeb can bring it to you.

How is Loeb still working at Marvel?

I think they're still hoping he'll produce some great story arcs like he did 10 years ago before he went off his nut. I think they're a bit more optimistic than I am.

His reputation as a legend in DC along with his rule to work with only popular artists makes him someone who sells well, quality is the second thing most important

I think it's just stupid.I don't see how people can be that lazy that they can't write out Red Hulk.I've even seen Ragnarok called Clor in comics when they've already named him.What's with this lame nicknaming system? I've even seen She Hulk called Shulk..or Shulkie.It's disgusting!

1.I'm not pissed.I just don't like the name.
2.He's not a clone.Red Hulk is a Hulk but his powers are actually slightly different from Hulk's and he's not Bruce Banner.
3.I don't care whether YOU like the character or not.He deserves a better name.He's already created so he's stuck there.They could atleast give him a name that's not stupid.
4.Nobody makes any character to annoy fans when they are trying to sell books...that's completely retarded.

People say stuff like this as if Uatu or the Grandmaster haven't been owned by people who would have no chance against Rulk.

EEEEEAAAASSSSSY there! Maybe it is lazy, but...who really cares? Is that really something worth getting mad about? Honestly? Come on, now...

Oh, and She-Hulk's been called Shulkie for YEARS. Hawkeye I believe first named her that.

@Cezar_TheScribe: Yikes. So calling the character something his own creator calls him in interviews is "lazy"? Again...was it worth it? It's just a nickname. Does this mean you MUST call everyone named Ben, "Benjamin" if that's their full name? Or Tony, "Anthony"? Frank, "Francis"? Etc., etc., ad-infinitum...

I'd rather be called by my full name. My name is five letters long and people like to shorten it to four.

And that's a no no.

Those don't sound absolutely retarded.Also those are nicknames given by people they know.I'm asking if Rulk's name is actually Rulk and not Red Hulk to begin with.I've only seen him called Rulk in the comics.

Well, OK, but that's a personal preference. My name's Ben, and it's pretty irritating to hear "Benjamin", because that usually means someone is mad at me. So it obviously goes both ways. Doesn't mean someone is lazy, which is pretty uncalled for, anyway.

abbreviation come up with readers that Loeb adopted at conventions, ect, as a hat-tip and because readers were familiar with it.
really, i cant see why one would expect anything else from him, much like expecting Bay to not make a movie centered around special effects. falls suit with things like Clone Thor being called Clor. not really out of laziness, people generally think its fun or cute i guess. as for someones mention of Blue Hulk, no, purple.

Smash! <---? yeah, like A-Bomb too. theres a trend there with Loeb. expecting more would be rhetorical.

So Red Hulk and Thundra seemed have hit it off well. Is that weird that he is picking up banners left overs? Then he goes on to talk about thinking he could be Lyra's father but its not likely since she is green. It almost sounds like he is coming accustomed to being the red hulk and sounds like he is going to end up going down the same path as banner

Rulk being Lyra's father isn't likely because she's not from Earth-616 and as far as we know there is no Rulk in Earth-8009 and Earth-616 Rulk being her father wouldn't make a bit of sense.

I didnt say that Rulk was her father. I stated that He seems to think she is more like him then Banner. Also she is the daughter of Earth -616 hulk not Earth-8009 so it would be just as likely they would have Chosen him instead of Banner if they had chosen a Later time period from Earth-616. I in no way think she is the daughter of General Ross tho
