Zaki Talks Hulk!

Here's one I meant to post a few weeks back, but hey, better late than never! As many of you already know, the Hulk has been in my personal top tier of comic book heroes going back to when I was a wee one watching Bill Bixby get glassy-eyed and turn into Lou Ferrigno whenever he got angry. Thus, it was with great enthusiasm that I joined J. David Weter, curator of the Incredible Hulk Homepage and host of the excellent PADSmash podcast, on the occasion of the Green Goliath's 50th anniversary to answer the question of whether the Hulk is a hero or a menace. Given my longtime affection for Mr. Greenjeans, I had plenty to say, and we got a solid hour's worth of conversation out of pondering that question. One might even say it was...wait for it...smashing! You can stream the episode here or download it from iTunes. Enjoy!

I recently saw the Avengers film and really liked this treatment of the Hulk. I thought the "... I'm always angry" line was an interesting interpretation of the character which I'd never seen before.

It's a smart way to move the ball forward while still preserving what makes the character who he is.
