Are You Contagious?: A Year’s Worth of Cringe-Worthy Hulk Moments: Week 20

Let’s have a little fun and discuss some of the more graphic, violent, sad, or just plain awkward moments that have plastered the Hulk history.  Be it a passing meeting between spouses of a gruesome scene that nobody saw coming – this year I’ll have you squirming in your seat!

I can’t even describe what I was feeling when it happened.  One of the best written issues of Hulk history that still burns when read.  The final arc of Peter David’s 12 year writing career for the Hulk had the Hulk face down one of the biggest nightmares.  His wife… the woman he loved from the day he first laid eyes on her… was dying.

Dying from gamma radiation poisoning.  Not even the strength of the Hulk could not save her.  Banner’s brilliant mind could not stop the inevitable.  Betty was going to die.  In an issue that simultaneously infuriated and saddened you, you watched the love of Bruce Banner’s life collapse and never get back up – and for months we were under the impression that it was the constant exposure to gamma radiation from the Hulk.  It was hard to read – and truly one of the most ‘incredible’ Hulk comics written.
