* Bruce Banner is the premier human expert on radiation - specifically, gamma radiation - in the entire Marvel U, with Reed Richards and even Doctor[[InsufferableGenius freaking]] Doom admitting his superiority in that field. Not a ''power'', as such but still pretty impressive, given that the former discovers new universes regularly and the latter invented ''time travel''. Bruce invented a time machine by accident, back when he was still employed as a weapons designer. One of the places his intelligence is taken advantage of is in the LighterAndSofter ''ComicBook/MarvelAdventures'' continuity, where he and Tony Stark are the scientific minds of the Avengers. It has also been emphasized in recent issues of The Incredible Hulk where Banner (temporarily) lost the ability to transform and made up for it with a bag full of gadgets.

* BadassBookworm: Although there are plenty of people smarter than him, most famously [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Reed Richards]] and SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom, Banner ''is'' one of the most brilliant people on the planet, and in his primary area of expertise: radiation, he is totally unsurpassed on Earth, with even Dr. Doom admitting that he doesn't know as much as Banner does on the topic. When he sets his mind to it very little can get in Banner's way.

** The Merged/Professor Hulk and Bruce Banner especially, since the Hulk's attractiveness always depends on the artist, but these two personas are always drawn as considerably good-looking and in good shape, with Banner being left shirtless due to the transformations. Banner has been acknowledged in-universe to be quite attractive by several woman, and the Hulk has has multiple admirers in alien worlds

Removing sink holes. Trope misuse. Pillars of Moral Character is about a specific Japanese set of morals, not just about being a good person.
** Savage Hulk: KnightInSourArmor or PragmaticHero. Extremely noble, well-intended, loyal, heroic, constantly persecuted without understanding why, only wants to be loved and have friends, but cannot understand the society around him, protector of all oppressed peoples around the universe, will be inconsolable after watching ''Bambi'' or seeing a dead bunny, and strictly a force for good as long as somebody (like his former father figure Comicbook/DoctorStrange, or own, as opposed to Banner's, "greatest love of his life" queen [[FriendToAllLivingThings Jare]][[PillarsOfMoralCharacter lla]]) gives him a comprehensible direction. Basically the most pure-hearted and genuinely heroic version, and seen in TheSuperHeroSquadShow, but non-constructively constantly hunted like an animal due to his sheer scale of power without the maturity to handle it properly. Nowadays, tends to usually be treated more kindly by other heroes when he shows up .

* ThePowerOfLove: It turns out that since Hulk's power is emotion-based and quasi-mystical in nature, the love he felt for Jarella makes her even more powerful after dying than his father's spirit turned from his rage. His mother also said that she by far prefered his PillarsOfMoralCharacter wife Jarella to his other wife, the BloodKnight Red She-Hulk.

* ReallyGetsAround: Although far less than [[ComicBook/SheHulk his cousin]], Hulk does get more affairs than expected for a giant, hulking ball of pain. From [[UglyGuyHotWife Betty]], [[FriendToAllLivingThings Jar]][[PillarsOfMoralCharacter el]][[UndyingLoyalty la]], [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe Be]][[DoingItForTheArt re]][[RealityWarper et]], [[HotScientist Kate Waynesboro]], [[ValleyGirl Marlo]], [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Caiera]], and [[ForgottenChildhoodFriend the college girlfriend]] [[UndyingLoyalty that he saved from being unlawfully contained]] in an ''Amnesty International'' condemned US prison; to being desired by [[StrawFeminist Thundra]], the other college fling [[EvilutionaryBiologist Monica Rappacini]] and [[EldritchAbomination Umar]] (''TWICE'')... Not to mention [[TheHedonist Joe Fixit]] who probably had ten times as much sex as all the other incarnations put together. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by Red She-Hulk, in those ExactWords. He even has a couple of kids as a result of this (at least Jen uses birth control, it seems).

** During WorldWarHulk, he also managed to beat Zom, arguably the most powerful known demon in the Marvel Universe, although later issues somewhat retconned this by stating that Doctor Strange was holding it back. He also matched the full power of the GodModeSue TheSentry.

The two-year-long epic ''PlanetHulk'' by Greg Pak was a major game-changer. A secret superhuman council called ComicBook/TheIlluminati decide to send the Hulk away, to a planet with no sentient life but plenty of plant and animal life. The Hulk is tricked into boarding a spaceship that will automatically travel to, and crash-land on, this place of exile. However, the ship goes off-course, and the planet he lands on is most decidedly ''not'' devoid of sentient life. It is a savage world, where slavery is common: the Hulk is put to work as a gladiator. With this as his jumping-off point, he soon [[spoiler:ends up ruling the world]], with a group of fellow freaks and exiles at his side and a beautiful warrior woman as his queen. However, this is [[DysfunctionJunction Marvel - and even more so, the Hulk]]: happiness is transitory. Soon after his victory, the ship that brought him to the world self-destructs, killing the Hulk's wife and causing widespread ecological damage that will destroy the planet's ecosystem. Unknown to the Hulk, his unborn son survives [[spoiler:(and his wife manages to come back from the dead for a while)]]. The enraged Hulk and his surviving allies prepare another spaceship - intending to return to Earth to destroy the Illuminati. This part of the story is called Planet Hulk, and took place during the ''ComicBook/CivilWar'' (conveniently leaving the Hulk out of the registration debate.)

** Invoked in an issue of ''SecretAvengers'': Banner is dropped onto a squadron of rampaging Iron Patriot drones, and when he reverts to Banner, he's arrested by SHIELD as part of a plot to recapture the Patriots. He doesn't remember being recruited or fighting. This is partly due to the usual amnesia and [[spoiler:partially because SHIELD has memory-altering technology]].

* FredTatasciore: Ever since he first voiced the Hulk in the 2005 video game ''VideoGame/TheIncredibleHulkUltimateDestruction'', Marvel has hired Tatasciore [[RoleReprisal numerous times to voice him and continues to do so]]. Quite notable, considering that every other Marvel character (except for SteveBlum as ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} and NolanNorth as {{Deadpool}}) has had his/her/its [[TheOtherDarrin voice changed]] with almost every new appearance.
