Editorial: The Psychology of Bruce Banner, A Story That Should Be Told

I am The Comic Critic and I would like to discuss a possible story for the next Hulk adaption

Hello and I'm John Jones aka The Comic Critic,

In a few of my recent editorials I have made opinions on future stories that should be utilized for such characters as Iron Man and Batman. I see these opinions did not fare well with many people and left me publicly humiliated as a joke. Which I should be clear now, these opinions are serious in the matter of careful research and my own intelligent thoughts combined. For I am not a troll but a man with ideas that may change the way you look at comic book characters today. In speaking of this manner might I add, my name is John Jones(could be shortened to Mr.Jones) or John or The Comic Critic and I would appreciate other vulgar/crude names not being typed towards me for respectfull purposes.

Now I shall begin the topic now which involves a character known as Bruce Banner. Bruce Banner's a genius,scientist, and a hero. He has an alter side to him known as The Hulk. A story which should be simple enough to understand but it is not. His recent media portrayal in The Avengers depicted him in his usual stasis as a man trying to over come his anger and way to get rid of The Hulk once and for all. But how about a media portrayal which instead depicts him as a version of Bruce Banner who has finally destroyed his Hulk alter ego once and for all.But instead of a nation at peace they demand to put him on trial for his crimes and destruction. Eventually justice prevails and Bruce Banner is sent to a mental asylum to be refreshed on life. But all things come to an end when an old friend of his makes a visit, Samuel Sterns aka The Leader who needs the control of the hulk to help ravage and destroy the world as part of his revenge like plan. And the perfect way would be to utilize Bruce Banner once again as the victim of torment to become the Hulk once more. 

How this may work, The Leader was already hinted as a possible villain in The Incredible Hulk. And as The Leader he has vast knowledge of gamma radiation. Above all he is an extreme genius.

It would also be the perfect way to explore more of Bruce Banner's past include his history also. There could be flashbacks to his childhood through teens all up to present day being told in these psychological reports and from his own views. 


The first half of this film would depict how Banner has overcome the Hulk, the trial, and him being in the mental asylum while the second half would see the return of Samuel Sterns and his plans of revenge coming in full circle at once. It would be a classic comic book story of falling and soon rising again to become who you are in life. The last solo films depicted the usual running away and trying to be a hero formula where in this one it would make a desperate departure to a more deeper and personal story involving him that would actually make sense at the same time. In general it would make a much darker and violent story which is what this character needs.
I would recommend this theme for the film as it is a right tune that depicts a calming peaceful nature in regards to the "Lonely Man" theme.


If you have any suggestions or comments please write them below and I will try to read and respond to them.

"Jacky Timish" confirmed! John Jones? Really? Have you listened to your own video? I heard an Asian accent. Jones. Really? L O L. Also, icing on the cake — posting "calm" music to get us "thinking". Jacky posted Jeopardy music and recommended Skrillex to score Man Of Steel. It's been really entertaining. "Jacky Timish" was atleast funny. Glad you took my advice with making a new account but will you at least try to hide it better?

Work on your English before trolling English-dominant forums.

Just stop. You're just digging yourself a hole. You call yourself a "ComicCritic" and write articles about comics you've never read!

You're not Asian? What are you? Is "stupid" an ethnicity?

95 - 8/14/2012, 5:41 PM
You really suck now Jacky. I liked your absurd style. Now you suck.

@wearethewalkingdead9 He said in a previous article, and I quote: "I am sorry for the bad quality with the microphone, my dog threw down the cord a day before and kinda stepped all over it. I am sorry if my voice is annoying too, I am not so good at speaking English since it was not really my first language."

Just saw the video

lol. Thomas Wayne raping a bat. Just for pure comedic value, John Jones is a keeper. "Raping a bat" still makes me laugh.

He can form intelligent comments (e.g. IMAX Indy re-release article). But these articles are straight trolling. Jacky Jones, don't push good editorials off Page 1.

@wearethewalkingdead9 His fansite page says: "I am a well known internet critic who reports news and makes editorials to support the fan base above all."

This shit is hilarious.

Don´t remove this guy, at first I was mad, but now I´ve come to understand that this guy is pure comedy gold.
I´m just kinda afraid that he may not be a troll, if so then I think he might be dangerous, to himself and/or to others.

Oh YES! A hulk movie without hulk! [frick] YES! Your making Batman and Robin look like the Dark Knight

they really will let anyone on the internet. i don't think you should be allowed to have internet access, or a computer for that matter. I can only imagine the fd up files you have on your pc
jessepostal - 8/14/2012, 6:55 PM
seek help kid,seek help
95 - 8/14/2012, 6:56 PM
"Rape a bat". Still lol'ing. Must be watching some [frick]ed up movies, pal. Hopefully comic book movies redeem you because you got some problems. Your dog is either imaginary or an alien (I imagined walking backwards in an Independence Day way). Since you compared him to Scooby-Doo, he must be actually genius. I mean, he did "stepped" on your cords. Pretty good attempt at sabotaging your "podcast" goal, if you ask me. lol.

Jacky is quite the comedian. Glad to have the "Jacky" persona back. I adore this guy's stories. Really, I really do.

Respectful, not respectfull.
GoILL - 8/14/2012, 8:46 PM
Didn't read but does this involve Bruce Banner getting molested or being a drug addict?
xcrementus - 8/14/2012, 9:49 PM
dunno bout you guys, but i CANNOT WAIT for this vid.
StormLoganSummers - 8/14/2012, 10:01 PM
@ComicCritic You're welcome. I'll admit, this wasn't as crazy as your other articles.

I have read one of his articles before and this man is beyond an idiot can be, and I am this idiot? And calling me Asian? Such ignorance how I ever would have thought..

You are beyond an idiot can be, Jacky. Such ignorance is all you are ever capable of, and thought is obviously not your strong point.

This isn't too bad. I like the idea of Bruce Banner getting rid of Hulk, and then finding out he really did need it. But cut that asylum BS, that's unnecessary. You come up with good concepts and ideas, but then the story surrounding them is utter shit. Bruce Banner discovering he needs Hulk, Bruce Wayne becoming Batman as a means of embracing something that was tortured when he was a young boy.

But Thomas Wayne shouldn't rape bats.
riddlemethis09 - 8/15/2012, 7:48 AM
@Comic Critic, not that bad of an article. Your spelling and grammar have vastly improved in the past few weeks, which is great to see.
This idea is a decent one, definitely different than most plots of CBMs. But, different also seems a little boring to me. When people think of the Hulk, they want to see SMASHING. A Hulk-less Banner just wouldn't bring in as many viewers and could lead to a slow story for the first half.
As for who you are... you seem lonely and a little twisted. But, Hell, Edgar Allan Poe and Truman Capote both had those traits, yet they are revered as famous writers. The thing is, they used their backgrounds to a different element. Maybe comic book heroes aren't your thing. Why not try out a different vein of comics such as the Punisher or Ghost Rider. These stories have the horror and gore that you appreciate.
Just my two cents. But seriously, the bestiality was a little a weird. Most movie-goers are not into that.

But Ang Lee's HULK lamented so much on the psychology of Banner I honestly thought I was going to fall asleep at one point.

Wow...you guys are trolls and bullies.
boomshuka - 8/19/2012, 8:50 PM
How about a smart Hulk, iniated by the beyonder? Is that now how Skaar hulk become smart?
KAPZ - 8/25/2012, 11:52 AM
i dont see why souch drastic changes need to be made to the story or character like if there was no hulk left to write about im sory but thats all ure idea sounds like like if there wasnt much hulk story left thats movieworthy , well im still waiting for the real hulk to make his debut on the big screen and by that i mean the secondary personality inside bruce banner the one that grows an extreme hatred for bruce but they must somehow manage to coexist i think theres still a lot of hulk needed to be seen in a movie what you propose almost sounds like a reboot
