    The Hulk
    The Ultimate Universe was an actually good way of getting Marvel back on its feet and pulling in new readers. That is until Mark Millar came along.

    Type: The cannibalistic side of Bruce Banner
    Age: Unknown
    Species: Mutated human
    Status: Alive
    Media of origin: Ultimate Marvel Team Up #2
    First appearance: Marvel Comics

    The Hulk is a fictional superhero appearing in publications by the American publisher Marvel Comics. Created by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby, the character first appeared in the debut issue of The Incredible Hulk (May 1962).

    Unfortunately, in the Ultimate Universe imprint, he was horribly reimagined to the point of being so different than the character everybody knows and loves.

    This article will only be talking about his Ultimate Comics incarnation, who first appeared in the second issue of Ultimate Marvel Team Up. If you have any more reasons, please write them down below because my reasons were not very good.

    Why He Should Be Smashed to Pieces

    1. To get the obvious out of the way, he was horribly reimagined from being a heroic, misunderstood, beloved monster to an over-the-top angry, jealous, cannibalistic brutish creature.
    2. He suffers from a poor grasp to his mainstream counterparts’s source material where he got his powers from a re-created super soldier serum instead of a Gamma Bomb explosion (which meant that Rick Jones (whom Bruce was trying to keep him away from the test site) doesn't encounter him, instead became a light-orange being named Nova (who is also not a helmet wearing spaceman)), and murdered Spider-Man’s parents from that test (while their 616 versions were killed in a plane crash).
    3. He caused the destruction of Times Square and the deaths of 800 people just because he was “jealous” of his ex-girlfriend Betty Ross having a relationship with real-life actor Freddie Prinze Jr.
    4. He actually eats people, making this Hulk a cannibal. Like what the hell was Mark Millar thinking?
    5. He (as the Hulk) actually likes being the monster and hurting people rather than seeing that as a curse and having to fear on losing control much like his 616 counterpart.
    6. He acts like an angry dude who just wants to hurry up and do something while also said eating and killing.
    7. Unlike his 616 counterpart, he doesn't have any split personalities at all and never getting his own self-titled Ultimate Comics series (the closest is the one-shot Ultimate Hulk annual and Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk).
    8. He nearly kill all the Ultimates since he was never a member of it in the first place when the Hulk was going to kill Freddie Prinze Jr. for said dating Betty instead of him/Bruce and almost killing Wolverine by splitting parts of his legs and waist in Ultimate Wolverine vs Hulk.
    9. He often joins Mr Fantastic who had become the villainous Maker to steal the 8 infinity stones and it's 2 equipped gauntlets (the main 616 counterpart were 6 and the infinity gauntlet was 1) in Ultimate Comics The Ultimates, while also joining a female version of Kang as part of her “Dark Ultimates” team.
    10. He killed the Ultimate Marvel's version of one of his arch-nemeses, Abomination by splitting his head open just because he says he was "thinking too much."
    11. He doesn't even fight or encounter his universe’s other archnemesis, the Leader, who is now bald elderly scientist working for The Roxxon Corporation and has the same brute growth powers from him him while controlling it instead of the green skinned villain with a big forehead.

    Redeeming Qualities

    1. His design is pretty cool and staying true to his original first color design (which was gray and later green).
    2. It is understandable why he was the person he was because S.H.I.E.L.D captured him, held him hostage, held his ex hostage at one point, sentenced him to death by literally dropping a nuke on him, and forced him to be apart of the Ultimates against his will.
    3. He at least used to help the Ultimates and the X-Men fight villains like Loki, Magneto, Sabretooth and the Brotherhood.
    4. The Ultimate Avengers direct-to-DVD duology, which was based on The Ultimates 12-issue series, toned the character down and removed certain parts from it despite still not joining the team.
    5. His beatdown by the mainstream Hulk in Ultimate End (one of the tie-ins from 2015’s Secret Wars) was well deserved after the atrocities he committed.
    6. In the final issue of Spider-Men ll (in which he was last seen), the Hulk does recently reform and joined the Ultimates against his universes’ Green Goblin, who is a regenerating monstrous creature (rather than a costume wearing goblin).
    7. He ultimately inspired the MCU incarnation of Hulk (with The Incredible Hulk film from 2008 being the closest)
