This eventually led to Banner [[TookALevelInBadAss taking a level in Badass]] and the next event -- ''ComicBook/FallOfTheHulks''. Afterwards, inspired by the positive reception of the character in ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'', the Hulk was given a new, more heroic direction in ''The Indestructible Hulk'', working for ComicBook/{{SHIELD}} in exchange for using his Hulk persona to attack enemies, and once again a member of the Avengers.

For the 2015 ''ComicBook/AllNewAllDifferentMarvel'' initiative Hulk was relaunched as ''ComicBook/TotallyAwesomeHulk'', with Amadeus Cho [[LegacyCharacter taking on the role of his favorite hero]] following Banner's death.

However, Hulk/Banner's deaths never stick... and it turns out there's a reason for that beyond just the HealingFactor. Banner returned in ''ComicBook/AvengersNoSurrender'' with a new dimension to his eternal curse, and a new ongoing spinning out of the event, ''The Immortal Hulk''.

This however, led to one of the best depictions of grief ever seen in comics, the issue following her death encompassed an entire year-and-change of Bruce's depression as told to Peter Parker by a forty-year-old Rick Jones.

** Although he was only actually around for one issue before dying, old homeless man [[MagicalNegro Crackajack Jackson]] made a huge impression on the Hulk in the 70's by teaching him to read a little bit, and just by being a genuinely loving and nonjudgmental friend. The Hulk mourned his passing for years afterward. When the [[SufficientlyAdvancedAliens Shaper of Worlds]] briefly created a perfect world for the Hulk, one of the most heartwarming parts is the Hulk's sheer joy that Crackajack is there. The memory of their friendship also gave rise to a minor RunningGag for a while that the Hulk's absolute favorite food was canned beans.
