* DorkAge: Many readers regard the period after Peter David first left the book, or even after Peter Jenkins run, as this leading up until just before Planet Hulk. There was a clear lack of direction of where the Hulk was going, and every shift made to the book would be undone as own as the next writer came on board. It got so bad that when PAD came back, [[ArmedWithCanon he pretty much erased the run of three different writers with a single line up until the time he first left]]. Which was six years prior. Likewise, Jeph Loeb's run on the book is often regarded as one: mainly known for relegating the Hulk into a ''guest character'' in his own book, a VillainSue EvilCounterpart running around beating up half of the heavyweights in the MarvelUniverse, before ''killing'', reviving, then de-powering the Hulk (in a ''MilestoneCelebration'' of all things), a number of Hulk derivatives abound (even putting aside Red Hulk), a random FaceHeelTurn of Doc Samson, and every one of them received as much an explanation for the twists and turns that occurred during Loeb's run. Which is to say not much of one. Eventually, Greg Pak, the writer of ''Comicbook/PlanetHulk'' and ''Comicbook/WorldWarHulk'' was brought alongside Loeb to write a concurrent book building on Loeb's storylines, but in reality, [[AuthorsSavingThrow likely to try to make sense]] of the sheer insanity that Loeb brought in his run.

** An early issue has the Hulk getting sent to a BadFuture by a ray-gun, whereupon he's attacked by a futuristic army working for someone. After a brief fight he's transported back to the past, and this strange sequence of events is never mentioned again.

** It's generally accepted by fans, that like Batman and his prep-time, given enough time for the Hulk to get mad enough, he could take down anything and anyone. Monsters, Gods, CosmicEntities, you name it, the Hulk can smash it.

** "Puny X!", borrowing Hulk's oft-phrased reference to humans as "[[PunyEarthlings Puny humans]]!". This meme was elderly until ''Film/TheAvengers'' rejuvenated it with the Hulk's ''only'' line of dialogue.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Re-reading the original Lee-Kirby issues of Hulk from a certain point of view, it can be easy to interpret Banner as being gay, and the Hulk as straight. Banner's heterosexuality has been firmly established the decades since, but still. This illuminates the way General Ross keeps calling him a milksop, why Banner seems indifferent to Betty but the Hulk is obsessed with her, and why Banner ''really hates'' being transformed into a caricature of he-man heterosexuality.

** Post-[[Main/Onslaught]], the Hulk, literally half the ma-err, monster he used to be due to being separated from Banner again, starts giving off an unusual and deadly amount of radiation. He was also brain-damaged during this time, and given his usual temperaments, this was a recipe for disaster. One attempt from the army to contain him had him ''melt'' the lead containment shield designed to capture him, and the Hulk ''tearing half his face off''. A soldier in a special radiation-resistant suit [[NauseaFuel felt nauseated seeing that]] [[TooDumbToLive and attempted to take his helmet off to throw up]], [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath but himself received a horrifying death where his eyes]] ''[[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath melted]]'' [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath as his skin burned from the radiation the Hulk gave off]].

** Where does the Hulk's hatred of humans come from? Is it because he hates Banner, either for containing him or being weak, and sees humanity as an extension of him? Is it because of the mistreatment Banner suffered throughout his life? Is it just because he is different from them? Or is there a more specific reason stemming from his origin story? eg. Banner only became the Hulk because while attempting to rescue Rick Jones, he ordered his colleague to halt the countdown, but said colleague was a Soviet spy and tried to indirectly kill him with the bomb.

Or is there [[http://marvel.wikia.com/wiki/Igor_Drenkov_%28Earth-616%29 a more specific reason stemming from his origin story? eg. Banner story?]] [[note]]Banner only became the Hulk because while attempting to rescue Rick Jones, he ordered his colleague to halt the countdown, but said colleague was a Soviet spy and tried to indirectly kill him with the bomb. Given that the Hulk regards the bomb as an attempt to kill him, and the cause for much of his misery, rather than his "creator", it would be understandable why he'd come to hate everyone involved in its creation, including Banner, and the incident that led to his emergence.
