The Incredible Hulk

This comic book character was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1962. Lee said that the Hulk’s creation was inspired by a combination of Frankenstein and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.  While attempting to save a youth who wandered into the test range, physicist Dr. Bruce Banner gets caught in a laboratory experiment using a blast of a gamma bomb he invented. He is then transformed into the Hulk, a creature with amazing physical strength.
