This is a specific time when MODOK made an entire suit. It was humongous, so in return the Hulk stated the obvious: MODOK is “Giant”
Hulk usually does keep his nicknames pretty original and every foe gets a unique nickname that reflects some physical feature. How insulting then is it when Wendigo gets such a generalized nickname? Wendigo is “Monster”
There are insanely monstrous Hulk illustrations but this one might take the cake! The Hulk is looking for Scorpio but man is this shot just bad! Either way we see the Hulk looking for Scorpio but calls him Red Man! Scorpio is Red Man
While we have already covered the Thing before it is worth mentioning that the Hulk has always been able to find a perfect nickname for his foes! The Thing, in this instance, is just a “…stupid pile of rocks…” I love it! The Thing is: A Stupid Pile of Orange Rocks
What else would you do when faced with an opponent sporting two faces, one on top of the other? Call him the most obvious thing you can, of course! Bi-Beast is Funny-Head!
I’ve always loved the stories with Hulk and Woodgod – and even better when the Hulk is tcalling out to Spidey and Woodgod but he calls them his classic names: Spider-Man is Bug-Man Woodgod is Goat-Face
Nothing is worse than getting your ass kicked as the person beating you taunts you with stupid name calling. Not that I would know from experience… Giant Scary Crab is Dumb Shell with Claws
I do love the obvious nature of Hulk nicknames – but also the bluntness and hilarity of each one! Here is another fellow Defender who gets a memorable nickname that I can’t believe didn’t stick! Luke Cage is Fuzzy Hair!
Sometimes the Hulk will pick out a physical feature but if there is none that stands out Hulk will pick out the next best thing – their choice in clothing! Hawkeye is Purple Man
Imagine being one of the Hulk’s oldest and most popular villains yet the Hulk can hardly remember your name: But he does! And then decides to pick on one of your most prominent features: Abomination is Big Ears
Essentially a better Namor villain Tiger Shark came up against the Hulk early in his self-titles series. He fared better than I thought he should but that is nothing compared to Hulk’s A-Game name calling as he lands an obvious one here: Tiger Shark is Fish-Man
Talk about astute! The Beast may have been called a monkey behind his back for years but only the Hulk is brave enough to call him that to his face! Beast is Monkey
Try to imagine you’re the Hulk for a second. You’ve now come across yet ANOTHER costumed hero or villain and you need to come up with ANOTHER new nickname! That can’t be easy! I don’t think the Hulk is given nearly enough credit for his quick wit! 3-D Man is Fancy Man!
Anytime you have to face off against the Hulk be prepared to be hurt both physically AND emotionally! Honestly, I think the Rhino gets off easy here: Rhino is Greyhide and maybe a bit too on the nose here: Rhino is also Animal Suit!
Admittingly, Moon Knight’s nickname might sound racist out of the box – but I don’t think Hulk means anything by it. Moon Knight is Sheet Face
