|“||You're making me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry.||„|
|~ Bruce Banner|
Hulk is the form taken by Bruce Banner whenever he is stressed or enraged. This is due to exposure to gamma radiation coupled with childhood trauma. His father David Banner is a geneticist who experiments on himself in his efforts to improve human DNA. His modified genes are passed on to his son, Bruce. Eventually one of his experiments exploded, killing Bruce's mother. David was arrested and Bruce was raised in foster care, with no memory of his true parents.
As an adult, an accident in the lab leads to a radiation bath which interacts unexpectedly with Bruce's altered DNA. Soon after he becomes the Hulk, and destroys the lab. He is captured by the military but easily escaped. His father, now entirely crazy, bites an electrical cord and fought the Hulk. Ross deploys a bomb, and both are assumed dead. However, he is actually still alive deep in the Amazon forests.
