''Hulk: The End'' is a 2002 Marvel comic book written by Creator/PeterDavid and illustrated by Dale Keown. It tells the story of an old Bruce Banner as the last surviving human on an Earth devastated by nuclear war, his only companion being a "Vidbot" left by alien races to document the demise of humanity.

To make things worse, the pair are constantly pursued by swarms of giant evolved cockroaches which feed on the Hulk's constantly regenerating body...
