''Hulk Vs.'' (2009) is a DirectToVideo animated film from Marvel Animation and Creator/LionsGate, featuring the ComicBook/IncredibleHulk in two short film battles, one against ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}, the other against ComicBook/TheMightyThor.


[[folder: Hulk vs. Thor ]]

In ''Hulk vs. Thor'', Bruce Banner is abducted by Loki and brought to Asgard with the help of the Enchantress. Loki angers Banner to induce the Hulk transformation, at which time the Enchantress magically separates the Hulk from Banner, giving Loki control over the Hulk. With his newfound pawn, Loki charges the gates of Asgard to try to claim Odin's realm during the week when he is resting. Only Thor has a chance of stopping him...


[[folder: Hulk vs. Wolverine ]]

In the segment ''Hulk vs. Wolverine'', Department H sends Wolverine to hunt down a mysterious beast known by the US Military as the Hulk, who is rampaging across the Canadian wilderness. Tracking the beast by a distinctive toxic scent left at the wreckage of a small town, Wolverine soon finds Bruce Banner sitting and crying at the edge of a small lake. Noticing the same toxic scent clinging to Banner, Wolverine starts to violently interrogate him, [[YouWouldntLikeMeWhenImAngry ignoring Banner's warnings until...]] oops. Hello, Hulk. And this is only the ''beginning'' of Wolverine's problems.

This is also the first time SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} has a speaking role in an animated appearance, as well as his first non-cameo role in an animation.

!! Both segments contain examples of:
* Creator/{{Madhouse}}: Did the animation for both shorts with [[UsefulNotes/SouthKorea South Korean]] subsidiaries Creator/DRMovie and Creator/MoiAnimation.
* OhCrap: Two when dealing with the Hulk and dealing with Thor.
** Sabretooth when Bruce [[HulkOut hulks out]].
-->Sabretooth: Oh, no! *{{screams like a little girl}}*
** The standard response to any Hulk-based rampage, "Hulk tear off talking-man's head!," got a very straight usage from Deadpool.
-->"''My'' head? OhCrap."
** Loki when Thor arrives at his sanctum.
--> Thor: [[SayMyName LOKI]]!! I would have words with you!
* VersusTitle

!! The "Wolverine" segment provides examples of:

* AdaptationalVillainy: While not necessarily a very moral person, comic!Deadpool has standards he won't break. In this film, he's more AxCrazy than usual, even suggesting shooting babies, [[FriendToAllChildren something Deadpool would never do]].
* AdaptationDistillation: Wolverine's origin from ''Weapon X'' is included through small snippets of every major scene and it's just as rich in horror as the original story.
** X-23's three second cameo ignores pretty much everything about her comic origin.
* {{Animesque}}: Jeff Matsuda, who did most of the character designs for ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'' did the design for the ''Wolverine'' segment and thus, like those shows and [[http://www.jeffmatsuda.com/ his stuff in general]], falls into this trope.
* AssKickingPose: After Wolverine and Bruce Banner escape captivity, the Weapon X team all strike {{Ass Kicking Pose}}s before running off to hunt them down. Deadpool lampshades this by shouting "Strike a pose!"
* AntiHero: Wolverine is a Type IV, in the height of his pre-X Men days and NotSoDifferent from the Weapon X stooges. Hulk is a Type III. He saves passersby and only fights back when provoked, but Lord help you if you make him angry...
* BodyHorror: People are stabbed, arms are ripped and sliced off, and other assorted not-so-BloodlessCarnage. Made funny when Deadpool ''[[spoiler:spends about a minute re-attaching his Logan-severed arm pieces!]]''
* BloodlessCarnage: Averted. The Wolverine segment is the first non-comic appearance of the character to ''not'' use it.
* ChildHater‎: Deadpool states babies creep him out and expresses a desire to kill the infant Weapon X clones.
* ContinuitySnarl:
** According to WordOfGod,[[invoked]] the ''Wolverine'' short takes place in the same universe as ''WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen''. However, a number of things contradict each other. [[spoiler:In the series, Wolverine doesn't remember Weapon X or Sabretooth when he runs into Sabretooth after years, whereas in the short, he does remember them and Deadpool, Lady Deathstrike, and Omega Red well. Also, on ''[=WatXM=]'', Bruce Banner, after transforming from the Hulk, has no idea who Wolverine is, whereas in the short, Wolverine's first meeting with Bruce is while he's Bruce and Wolverine is the reason for his two main Hulk-outs in the short.]]
** It gets worse as ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' is apparently in the same universe with no proof except Wolverine having sporadic appearances. ...Well ''some'' of the staff say that, whether or not they ''all'' agree is up for debate.
** Plus, in the DVD commentary they explicitly say at the end that [[spoiler:Sabretooth is dead]].
* CurbStompBattle: The Hulk versus most of the characters he fights - some put up a decent fight at first, but once Hulk gets a single hit in they are very soundly and brutally beaten down. Omega Red gets the worst of this.
* EmpathyDollShot: A single lonely teddy bear is left behind after the Hulk's rampage... [[spoiler:though it's shown later that it's thanks to the Hulk that the girl and her father weren't made into Swiss cheese by Deadpool.]]
* EvasiveFightThreadEpisode: We never do get to see who wins the titular match in ''Hulk vs. Wolverine''.
* FeedItABomb: Deadpool tries this on the Hulk. [[HilarityEnsues It ends badly.]]
* FragileSpeedster: Lady Deathstrike can run circles around the Hulk. He ends the fight with a single ShockwaveClap.
* GoodThingYouCanHeal: A very good thing for pretty much all of the major characters.
* HulkSpeak: "Hulk smash little man!" Okay, Wolvie's only 5'2, but there's no reason to go ''on'' about it.
* InfantImmortality: X-23 survives the Hulk ripping the Weapon X facility apart.
* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: Anytime somebody shoots at Wolverine, though he's shown to be ImmuneToBullets when Deadpool shoots him in the head at point blank, though that would be a given since he could also get back up after a beating from the Hulk.
* LaughablyEvil: Deadpool, as a result of AdaptationalVillainy (sorta).
* LeanAndMean: Deadpool's incarnation in the Wolverine segment, whom fans have dubbed [[FanNickname "Skinnypool"]].
* LetsGetDangerous: After Logan receives a major asskicking from the Hulk, he wakes a few seconds later, says, "Ok bub, let's try that again" and proceeds to open his own can of whupass.
* MomentKiller: Deadpool in general, really.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Its the only way Wolverine can get an even fight with Hulk.
* OrgasmicCombat: Lady Deathstrike seems to orgasm as she's tearing into Wolverine.
* OnlySaneMan: Ironically enough the Hulk. Considering that everyone else is a AxCrazy BloodKnight (Wolverine included) whose in it only for the sake of violence or revenge, the Hulk looks positively saintly in comparison, given that he goes out of his way to save people from Weapon X. The worst thing he does is attack Wolverine, and given that Wolvy threatened to gut him and stabbed him in the chest, it's hard not to argue that he had good reason.
* PeopleJars: The Weapon X cloning program.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl:
** The normally deep-voiced Sabertooth gets a noticeably higher voice when being charged by the Hulk.
** It also happens when Deadpool [[spoiler:loses half an arm]].
* TheStarscream: Sabretooth expresses lasting distaste for The Professor's decision to keep Logan alive, which eventually leads him to betray him to take over Weapon X himself, in part because he really wants to help Deathstrike kill Logan. Amusingly, when he attempts to lie to the others about who attacked the Professor in order to deflect blame onto Wolverine and keep their loyalty they don't buy it for a second, but join up with him anyway because they really like the idea of killing Wolverine.
* TheStinger
* ShootingSuperman: Deadpool tries shooting Hulk with his guns, which works as well as you would expect.
* TheWorfEffect: A rare variation where it's the villains and ''not Wolverine'' who suffers from this. Probably helps that he can actually stab people. Wolverine is shown to kick Deathstrike, Sabretooth and Deadpool around with relative ease (in the comics one is normally enough to slow him down at least, and the only thing that stops his fights with Deathstrike being complete stalemates is her lack of a healing factor). Omega Red is the only one really capable of holding his own, but that's at least true to the comics.

!! The "Thor" segment provides examples of:

* BalancingDeathsBooks: Hela eventually sends Bruce Banner back to the mortal plane after claiming him. She eventually takes Loki instead (since he tricked her in the first place.)
* BloodlessCarnage: Played straight. Possibly due to the Asgardians being immortal.
* TheCameo: You can spot classic Thor villains like Malekith and Surtur in the hordes attacking Asgard.
* HelloNurse: The Enchantress.
* IntimateHealing: Amora heals Thor with a kiss.
* {{Jobber}}: All of Asgard takes this role.
* MagicPants: The Hulk always has these, but this time it's taken to an extreme: When Banner and the Hulk are separated, ''both'' are wearing the trademark purple pants. Of course, gods and magic ''were'' involved.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Sadly, the Hulk vs Thor fight is ruined by turning into this from the very start. The rest of the segment features the Hulk delivering this to all of Asgard.
* OneManArmy: Hulk.
* OnlyTheChosenMayWield: Even with the Hulk's strength, Loki can't claim the Mjolnir for himself.
* SmokeShield: Following Thor's only major attack.
* TheWorfBarrage: After getting the crap beat out of him repeatedly by the Hulk, Thor finally decides to get serious and launch a powerful lightning attack complete with a hammer throw. After the smoke settles, the Hulk gets up unharmed and wipes the floor with Thor.
* TheWorfEffect: Thor is stated to be Asgard's greatest warrior who can crush entire armies and if he cannot defeat something then the rest of Asgard doesn't have a chance. In both his battles with the Hulk he barely fights back and in the first literally lays there as the Hulk SLOWLY pounds on him before trying to fight back and once again starts running into the Hulk's fists forgetting the basics of fighting.
