!!''Dr. Elizabeth [[ComicBook/BettyRoss "Betty" Ross]]''
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/betty_ross_hulk_4685.png]]

->'''Portrayed By''': Creator/LivTyler
->'''Film Appearances''': ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk''

->''"In the cave, I really felt like it knew me. Maybe your mind is in there, it's just overcharged and can't process what's happening."''

Daughter of General Ross, and Bruce's confidant and love interest. She was one of the leading scientists on Bruce's experiment, and feels partially responsible for his condition. Has an understandably terrible relationship with her father.
----
* ActionSurvivor: Inevitable when one follows a DestructiveSavior.
* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Somehow, all that fire after [[spoiler:the helicopter she was in crashed]] never touched Betty's long, beautiful hair. Maybe ''she's'' [[MythologyGag the one with a hair based superpower]]?
* BrainyBrunette: She's a scientist.
* CooldownHug: Provides one for the Hulk during his rampage at Culver, though unlike most instances in the comics it doesn't cause him to start turning back to normal.
* DatingWhatDaddyHates: Her dad has a low opinion of scientists. It's incredibly ironic when you think about it, considering that Betty herself is a scientist.
* DeadpanSnarker: Downplayed but present. When Bruce turns out her purse and says they can't use anything in it because it can be tracked she responds, "Can they track my lip gloss?"
* LongHairIsFeminine: [[BeautyIsNeverTarnished It also may or may not be fireproof]].
* HotScientist: Worked with Bruce on the gamma project.
* HotTeacher: Teaches at Culver University.
* MoralityPet: To the Hulk. She's the only one that he won't attack, and feels she still sees Bruce in him. After they reunite, she invokes MoralityChain by keeping his attention focused on her because she knows he isn't going to attack ''her''.
* NiceGirl: She's the opposite of her dad in that she is tolerant and forgiving.
* PutOnABus: She has been replaced by Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow as Bruce's love-interest.
* ThereAreNoTherapists: Averted. She's dating one, Dr. Samson.
* TwoFirstNames: Betty and Ross.
* ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend: Normally not, but when the two end up in a taxi driven by [[DrivesLikeCrazy the world's most reckless cabbie ever]], she ''EXPLODES'' at the driver for endangering them.
-->'''Betty Ross''': Are you out of your mind?! What is wrong with you?
-->'''Driver:''' It's nothing, baby. You don't like my driving?
-->'''Betty Ross:''' ''[screams and kicks the taxi door]'' ASSHOLE!!!
-->'''Bruce Banner:''' You know, I know a few techniques that can help you [[HypocriticalHumor manage that anger very effectively]]...
-->'''Betty Ross''': ''You'' zip it. We're walking!
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: There's no mention of her when Bruce takes up with Black Widow in ''Age of Ultron''. Considering that Bruce had been on the run for ''years'' by the time he met up again with Betty, that he has a less-than-ideal relationship with her father, and that he has a genuine fear of the Hulk hurting those he cares about, it's likely that he's deliberately staying away and/or he's completely given up on her for her own sake.
* WideEyedIdealist: Everyone, including Bruce, thinks the Hulk is a monster. Betty is the only one who thinks it can be tamed.

[[folder:Dr. Samuel Sterns]]
!!''Dr. Samuel Sterns''
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/samuel_sterns_hulk_1617.png]]

->'''Portrayed By''': Tim Blake Nelson
->'''Film Appearances''': ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk''

->''"I've always been more curious than cautious, and that's served me pretty well."''

A scientist who helps Bruce under the moniker "Mr. Blue". Bruce communicates with him wirelessly while in Brazil in hopes of developing a cure for his condition, but necessary ingredients for the formula require him to return to the United States. There, he discovers that Sterns has more than just curing the Hulk on his mind.
----

* AdmiringTheAbomination: Well, not the ''actual'' Abomination, who he's pretty horrified by, but Sterns is in complete awe of Banner as the Hulk, calling it "god-like" and "Olympian", and comparing Bruce to Prometheus giving man fire.
* AdaptationalHeroism: Samuel Sterns is an eccentric and careless, but mostly harmless scientist in this movie who tries to cure Banner, while in the comics, he is one of the more diabolical villains in that universe. The comic tie-in shows he eventually turned evil, so it's more like his origin story than a true morality shift.
* AdaptationalIntelligence: Instead of working at a nuclear facility as a mentally handicapped janitor, he's already a science genius and university professor.
* AlliterativeName: First and last names starts with S.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: He's an odd scientist to be sure.
* CassandraTruth: When Blonsky demands to have the Hulk's blood and gamma radiation applied to him, Sterns argues against it, claiming that the gamma-blood combined with Blonksky's experimental super-serumed body might turn him into "an abomination". Blonsky doesn't care, and holds Sterns at gunpoint to transform him anyway.
* CodeName: Mr. Blue.
* ForScience: Downplayed. While he is fascinated by Hulk blood he is ''thrilled'' by its practical applications.
* {{Keet}}: ''Very'' hyperactive, especially when it comes to science.
* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate: [[spoiler:He wants to cure Banner and find similar cures for diseases but wants to use gamma-irradiated blood to do so which always has unfortunate consequences.]]
* MotorMouth: He can get carried away discussing the merits of Hulk Blood; the result is a fast-flowing stream of science.
* MyBrainIsBig: [[spoiler: Caused by Banner's irradiated blood falling into an Abomination-caused head wound.]]
* NiceGuy: Other than Bruce, he knows how dangerous Hulk blood is better than anyone but instead of treating Bruce like a menace he's 'hail fellow scientist! Well met!'
* WeCanRuleTogether: [[spoiler:To Black Widow when she finds him in ''Fury's Big Week''. She responds by shooting him in the knee and taking him into S.H.I.E.L.D. custody.]]

[[folder:Dr. Leonard Samson]]
!!''Dr. Leonard Samson''
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/leonard_samson_hulk_6035.png]]

->'''Portrayed By''': Ty Burrell
->'''Film Appearances''': ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk''

->''"You know, it's a point of professional pride for me that I can tell when somebody's lying. And you are."''

A psychiatrist and Betty Ross' boyfriend while she is away from Bruce Banner.
----
* BadassBookworm: Lets General Ross know exactly how big a jerk he is.
* BrainyBrunette: A brunette who's a psychiatrist and takes a personal pride for being a LivingLieDetector.
* IWishedYouWereDead: He admits to Bruce that he secretly hoped Bruce was dead, because then he could keep dating Betty and wait for her pining for Bruce to fade. Now Bruce is back, though Leonard knows better than to hold a grudge.
* LivingLieDetector: It's personal pride for him to be able to do this.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: He's aware that Betty has been keeping something secret from that's been the reason for Bruce's exile. This also happens when Bruce tries to explain his condition to him, but the little he gives Leonard makes it sound like mere anger management issues.
* TheMole: [[spoiler:He gives Ross Banner's location so the General can capture him.]]
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: [[spoiler:When he sees the Hulk and Ross's ruthlessness in hunting him down.]]
* NiceGuy: He's friendly, reasonable, doesn't hold a grudge; no wonder Betty rebounded on him.
* OnlySaneMan: He can certainly understand how and why others think, and for his on-screen time he is not prone to overreacting.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Mixed in with the WhatTheHellHero below, he rebuffs General Ross' attempts at cooperation after seeing his military forces in action, and goes so far as to say that ''Bruce'' is essentially protecting Betty from ''Ross''.
-->'''Leonard''': I used to wonder why she never talked about you. Now I know.
* RomanticRunnerUp: Loses Betty back to Bruce.
* ThereAreNoTherapists: Averted, considering his own profession. However, Betty won't share everything with him.
* TwoFirstNames: Leonard and Samson.
* WhatTheHellHero: A short but pointed one to General Ross. "He protected her. You almost killed her."

"''

A General scientist who hunts down helps Bruce Banner claiming under the moniker "Mr. Blue". Bruce communicates with him wirelessly while in Brazil in hopes of developing a cure for his condition, but necessary ingredients for the formula require him to be a threat - in truth, he's after his blood as it contains answers return to perfecting the SuperSoldier serum. After his failure to capture Bruce, he has since become the United States Secretary of State.States. There, he discovers that Sterns has more than just curing the Hulk on his mind.



* AdaptationalVillainy: In the comics, Ross considers the Hulk a threat, and hunts him in order to stop him. In the movie, he knows perfectly well that Banner would prefer not to fight, but wants to weaponize the Hulk.
* BigBad: All the conflict of ''The Incredible Hulk'' is because he wants to dissect Bruce and all the soldiers attacking Bruce answer to him.
* TheBusCameBack: While he was never really put on a bus to begin with due to ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk'' never receiving a sequel (one could say the whole franchise was PutOnABus), his return in ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' marks the longest gap between appearances by a character in the MCU at 8 years.
* CompositeCharacter: His desire to capture and dissect the Hulk echoes that of General John Ryker, another Hulk villain.
* TheDeterminator: For better or worse, he does ''not'' know when to give up.
* DrowningMySorrows: In TheStinger of ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk'' after he had a '''really''' rough day: [[spoiler:his star soldier Blonsky went psycho and became the Abomination, his daughter severed her ties with him, and he was forced to release Banner to defeat Blonsky]]. As ''[[Film/MarvelOneShots The Consultant]]'' reveals, his day will only get worse.
* EnemyMine: [[spoiler:Temporarily releases Banner from custody and allows him to become the Hulk in order to fight off the Abomination and save the city.]]
* EvilutionaryBiologist: Of a sort. While he claims to be hunting down the Hulk just for the public's safety, he's more interested in dissecting Banner in order to discover the ComicBook/CaptainAmerica formula.
* GeneralRipper: Hunting Banner and bringing helicopters to a college that, until that point, was not experiencing Hulk problems.
* GodzillaThreshold: Is willing to use an uncompleted serum on his star soldier in order to take down the Hulk. When that goes wrong, [[spoiler:he sets Banner free to become the Hulk in order to save Harlem from the Abomination]].
* InspectorJavert: An outside observer would see a general tracking a defector/monster in order to bring him in for custody.
* {{Jerkass}}: Treats Banner like property and disrespects others.
* JerkassHasAPoint: During ''Civil War'' he rhetorically asks Captain America where Hulk and Thor are now and brings up that if he lost 2 nucnlear warheads, he would surely not get away without consequences.
* KnightTemplar: As noted by Samson, despite what Ross himself thinks, he's a bigger threat to Betty's safety than the Hulk.
* NeverMyFault: The experiment that turned Bruce into the Hulk was headed by him, but refuses to take responsibility for what happened to him or his daughter. He didn't even tell them what they were actually doing, creating a new Super Soldier instead of radiation resistance. Betty calls him out on it.

* AdaptationalHeroism: Samuel Sterns is an eccentric and careless, but mostly harmless scientist in this movie who tries to cure Banner, while in
the comics, Ross considers he is one of the more diabolical villains in that universe. The comic tie-in shows he eventually turned evil, so it's more like his origin story than a true morality shift.

* BunnyEarsLawyer: He's an odd scientist to be sure.
* CassandraTruth: When Blonsky demands to have the Hulk's blood and gamma radiation applied to him, Sterns argues against it, claiming that the gamma-blood combined with Blonksky's experimental super-serumed body might turn him into "an abomination". Blonsky doesn't care, and holds Sterns at gunpoint to transform him anyway.
* CodeName: Mr. Blue.
* ForScience: Downplayed. While he is fascinated by
Hulk a threat, and hunts him in order blood he is ''thrilled'' by its practical applications.
* {{Keet}}: ''Very'' hyperactive, especially when it comes
to stop him. In the movie, he knows perfectly well that science.
* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate: [[spoiler:He wants to cure
Banner would prefer not to fight, and find similar cures for diseases but wants to weaponize the Hulk.
* BigBad: All the conflict of ''The Incredible Hulk'' is because he wants

* TheBusCameBack: While he was never really put on a bus to begin with due to ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk'' never receiving a sequel (one could say the whole franchise was PutOnABus), his return in ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' marks the longest gap between appearances by a character in the MCU at 8 years.
* CompositeCharacter: His desire to capture and dissect the Hulk echoes that of General John Ryker, another Hulk villain.
* TheDeterminator: For better or worse, he does ''not'' know when to give up.
* DrowningMySorrows: In TheStinger of ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk'' after he had a '''really''' rough day: [[spoiler:his star soldier Blonsky went psycho and became the Abomination, his daughter severed her ties with him, and he was forced to release Banner to defeat Blonsky]].

* InspectorJavert: An outside observer would see a general tracking a defector/monster in order to bring him in for custody.
* {{Jerkass}}: Treats Banner like property and disrespects others.
* JerkassHasAPoint: During ''Civil War'' he rhetorically asks Captain America where Hulk and Thor are now and brings up that if he lost 2 nucnlear warheads, he would surely not get away without consequences.
* KnightTemplar: As noted by Samson, despite what Ross himself thinks, he's a bigger threat to Betty's safety
blood is better than the Hulk.
* NeverMyFault: The experiment that turned Bruce into the Hulk was headed by him,
anyone but refuses to take responsibility for what happened to him or his daughter. He didn't even tell them what they were actually doing, creating a new Super Soldier instead of radiation resistance. Betty calls treating Bruce like a menace he's 'hail fellow scientist! Well met!'

[[caption-width-right:310:[[labelnote:Click here]]http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/abomination_hulk_3559.png[[/labelnote]] to see The Abomination]]

->'''Portrayed By''': Creator/TimRoth
->'''Film Appearances''': ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk | Film/MarvelOneShots''

->''"I'm a fighter, and I'll be one for as long as I can. Mind you, if I took what I had now, and put it in a body that I had ten years ago, that would be someone I wouldn't want to fight."''

A British Royal Marine assigned to a team headed by General Ross to capture the Hulk, and quickly becomes obsessed with bringing him down, to the point of being injected with a sample of the original super-soldier serum to enhance his strength. After a painful encounter with the Hulk, he becomes even more driven and has Samuel Sterns infuse him with Banner's blood, transforming him into an abomination.
-----
* AccidentalMisnaming: In ''The Consultant'', Coulson notes that the World Security Council and Blonsky himself do not like the name he has been given.
* TheAce: Considered to be one of the best seasoned soldiers around. (He's referred to as "an ace" by the guy who refers him to Ross.)
* AxCrazy: [[spoiler: After he transforms into The Abomination, his BloodKnight tendencies push him off the deep end and goes on a destructive rampage.]]
* AppropriatedAppellation: Averted. He was given the name of "the Abomination" after his full transformation. He doesn't like it.
%%* ArchEnemy: To the Hulk.
* BadassNormal: Pre-serums. He led a platoon in close combat against the Hulk and was the only person to survive.
* BaldOfEvil: As Abomination.
* BarbieDollAnatomy: The Abomination is too big for MagicPants but doesn't have genitalia anyway. Given [[BodyHorror the nature of his transformation]], it's likely they're inside his pelvis now.
* BloodKnight: Ross asks why he doesn't have a higher rank given his age and experience. He replies "I'm a fighter". This increases as he's augmented, to the point when he stopped giving a crap about orders and just wanted to duke it out with the Hulk.
* BrokenAce: Even before he starts dabbling in PsychoSerum, he's a sadist and a thug. Afterwards...
* CallForward: His [[DrunkOnTheDarkSide descent into madness]] is an early hint of what Dr. Erskine explained in the ''Captain America'' movie that came three years later: with the serum, "[[{{Jerkass}} bad]] becomes [[OmnicidalManiac worse]]".
* TheCaptain: Blonsky is a Captain in the Royal Marines.
* ComicBookMoviesDontUseCodenames: Sterns alludes to the name "abomination", but otherwise he is referred to post-transformation as Blonsky. Averted in ''The Consultant'', where SHIELD agents indeed call him the Abomination, with a mention that the World Security Council ''really'' doesn't like it when he's called that. Later on, when he gets a shoutout in ''Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'' he's referred to as "Blonsky" instead of "Abomination".
* CursedWithAwesome: He's twice as strong as Hulk usually is and keeps his intellect. The downside? He can't change back and his strength doesn't increase like Bruce's does. The transformation also pushes him further into insanity.
* DeadpanSnarker: Tim Roth can't help himself from giving him a snarky line or two.
* DragonInChief: Ross's champion against the Hulk. [[spoiler: The serum drives him to become a DragonWithAnAgenda and, by the climax, becomes a greater danger than Ross, who he tries to kill along with the Hulk.]]
* DrunkOnTheDarkSide: After he turns into the Abomination, he starts tearing up New York City just because he can.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: Post-serums, he's a super soldier. After a transfusion of Banner's blood, he's ''ABOVE'' the Hulk's level.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: He shoots Banner's dog with a tranquilizer dart because it annoyed him. This establishes him [[KickTheDog as a bully]].
* EvilBrit: On loan from Britain, though in a nod to the comics he's mentioned to have been born in Russia. In either case, he has an accent from Britain and he is a villain.
* EvilCounterpart:
** Born of a combination of the super-soldier serum and The Hulk's blood; while Blonsky sacrifices his ability to be empowered by rage, he retains his intelligence.
** Before becoming the Abomination and after taking the imperfect Super Soldier serum, is easily one to Captain America. His abilities are roughly the same, but he has none of the honor or heroism Steve has.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Upon turning into the Abomination, his voice deepens similar to the Hulk's.
* FallenHero: At least InUniverse, he was considered a war hero before his transformation.
* FragileSpeedster: After taking the first imperfect Super Soldier serum but before becoming the Abomination, he is faster than the Hulk and any normal soldier, but is taken down with one kick into a tree from the Hulk that breaks all the bones in his body.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: After he becomes the Abomination.
* HealingFactor: The imperfect Super Soldier serum gives him one that allows him to survive (but not necessarily in good condition) full on blows from the Hulk.
* HumanoidAbomination: After taking in Banner's blood. Dr. Sterns lampshades this before the transformation itself.
* HumanPopsicle: ''Agents of SHIELD'' reveals he's being kept on ice in Alaska.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Once he discovers he's no longer the toughest guy around. The Super Serum turns this UpToEleven.
* {{Jerkass}}: See KickTheDog.
* TheJuggernaut: As the Abomination nothing can stop him. He marches down the streets of Harlem despite the military throwing ''missiles'' at him. None of it has any effect. [[spoiler: This is why Ross had to [[SummonBiggerFish release another juggernaut]]; the Hulk]].
* KickTheDog: Almost literally. He shot a dog with a tranquilizer dart just because it annoyed him.
* LightningBruiser: After becoming the Abomination he's faster and stronger than before.
* NeckLift: He raises Sterns above his own head, when he demanding that Sterns helpes him gat the Hulk's power.
* PersonalityPowers: As a result of the CallForward, Blonsky's transformation into the Abomination can be considered this as he mixed an imperfect Super Soldier serum with the Banner's irradiated blood, and thereby turned into the as-far-as-is-known permanent monstrosity that Samuel Sterns calls "an abomination".
* RaceLift: An interesting case, he's still a Russian and born in Russia. But he is raised in England as an Englishman, and eventually served the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Marines Royal Marines]] (while his comics counterpart served [[UsefulNotes/MoscowCentre KGB]]). This change is to explain Creator/TimRoth's accent.
* RemovingTheEarpiece: Before his second "fight" with the Hulk to show that he doesn't care about Ross or the chain of command anymore.
* RevengeBeforeReason: Disobeys orders and demands to be injected with Hulk blood without caring about the consequences just so he can become strong enough to beat the Hulk.
* SealedEvilInACan: ''Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'' notes that SHIELD is keeping him in cryogenic stasis in a facility in Alaska.
* SpikesOfVillainy: The Abomination has [[BodyHorror bones that have grown outside his skin]]. Even before he becomes the Abomination, he observes his own spine in a mirror and notes with strange fascination that his vertebrae have begun to poke out a bit.
* SuperSoldier: Unlike every other attempt to replicate Cap we've seen, it worked - if he wasn't on the same level, he was pretty close. The only apparent flaw had more to do with his personality than the serum itself: [[spoiler: after taking it he cared about nothing more than fighting.]]
* SuperSpeed: After taking the imperfect Super Soldier serum, he is able to jog faster than soldiers decades younger than him. When he finally stops he acts as though he was taking a calm stroll through the park.
* SuperStrength: As a SuperSoldier he can lift Sterns high above his own head with one hand. After becoming the Abomination he becomes twice as strong as the Hulk. However, it's set and won't increase with rage as he does.
* TokenEvilTeammate: Nearly became part of the Avengers, but SHIELD [[DefiedTrope put a stop to that.]]
* TooDumbToLive: For future reference, aspiring villains, getting within three feet of the Incredible Hulk and stopping your fight just to taunt him is not a good idea. If it wasn't for the super serum in his system, he certainly would have died.
* UnskilledButStrong: As the Abomination, he is stronger than the Hulk, but doesn't have his tricks (like using two halves of a car as a pair of clubs or smashing the ground to create a shockwave).
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Even after turning into The Abomination, the WSC still considered Blonsky a war hero and the Hulk at fault, and was close to getting him into The Avengers. Thankfully, saner minds prevailed.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: His descent into madness started when he took the super-soldier serum. Then he got himself injected with Hulk blood and [[DrunkOnTheDarkSide went completely off the deep end]].
* YoungerThanTheyLook: He's 39, but Ross estimates his age at 45 (Tim Roth was 46 at the time of filming, for what it's worth). This is due to constant battle stress.
