    The best Hulk I have seen. He did not overplay either character

    That has been part of the Hulk for quite a while as is the idea that Banner is more dangerous than the Hulk is.

    yeah. but i don't think he has much range. i could never imagine him disappearing into a role. his bruce banner was indistinguishable from his character in Red Dragon. either character could have been his character from American History X; post-reformation. that said, i've seen a lot of Ed Norton films and never hated any of them (well except for Death to Smoochie).

So i would have rather seen Banner having be the one outspoken Avengers not really wanting to deal with this because he thinks from the start that they are trying to do some side stuff and he decides to join simply to try and stop it.
    He plays Banner in a very Undertated manner, Banner is not flashy at all.. He plays the character like he was written and lets other chew of the scenery. at least until he turns green.

    That's as ridiculous as Hulk not killing anyone when he rampages.
    Bannerr is utterly ruthless and very damned smart, that makes him more dangerous than the Hulk. The hulk is basically a nice guy with a bad temper, banner is not a very nice guy at all. And the Bomb was not a science project it was a WMD.

    The idea that Banner is evil because he was working with gamma radiation is silly.

    the idea that he was ruthless enough to build a bomb bigger than a h-bomb is not.

    I guess you didn't read any Pak' run on the Hulk?

    That's not why he is considered evil. He is not evil because he worked on bombs. He worked on bombs because he was evil. He killed his father too. Banner has always walked that line. Just look at the Maestro.

    What does reading Pak's run have to do with thinking the idea that studying radiation means you are evil?

    So Banner is Doctor Doom now? He got all his degrees and became hella famous for single purpose of studying gamma radiation because he is evil. So how come he hasnt done any actual evil? Other than this silly story now.

    Umm... off the top of my head Banner has almost killed Rick Jones to protect his secret, hit Betty Ross, killed his father, killed thousands of people with the bombs he's created and used his son Skaar as a decoy while he rescued Betty in Fall of the Hulks resulting in his son being badly wounded. In the new Jason Aron series Banner has turned an entire island into a gamma fuelled version of the Island of Dr. Moreau. He's not exactly a balanced guy.

    Didn't he go all rapey in college one time too? Could have sworn I read a story where he got rough with some chick in college.

    He may have.

    I know there was a scene/memory shown in 377 where Bruce was in his dorm room with a girl who wanted some loving but Bruce was apprehensive and declined. After she insulted his manhood he grabbed her (which the memory shows as him turning into grey Hulk) and she freaked out and took off.

    I read it. And I also remember reading PAD's run. Where he wanted to make a bomb that left anything organic alive, but obliterated everything else. Doesn't sound ruthless to me.
    The flashback issue, as I recall.

    Bruce was on the ground and kicked back in defense of his murdering, attacking father.
    He's only evil if you spin the fact erroneously.
