Bruce Banner is a scientist who is the head of the Gamma Orb Project. In the comic book, he appears as a blond with blue eyes. At the beginning of the film, he has a gravelly complexion and is bald. He was born in Scotland and was trained at Culwall University. He is married to Ellen Grant, but they have yet to meet. They have a daughter named Sarah-Granny, whom he secretly cares for.
Banner is basically an expert on all sorts of Gamma Orb related matters. He knows everything about the history of the project, as well as its aim and ultimate goal. He has great knowledge about genetics and was one of the few people who knew the formula for creating the Gamma Orb. This is why he is such an important character - he knows what must be done, and what needs to be done.
Bruce Banner is also the father of Susanotto Banner - another important character in the comics. Their relationship is very complicated, and it is clear that Bruce is really very deeply in love with Susanotto. The two share a lot of mutual admiration and respect - especially towards their daughter, Sarah-Granny. Bruce Banner is a highly evolved geneticist - he can do incredible things with a simple gene-reversal procedure. He was the one who devised the method used by Dr. Robert Oppenheimer in the first place, and he deserves to be recognized for that.
As a character, Bruce Banner is an icon. He is an optimistic protagonist who constantly keeps himself motivated. His optimism is expressed in his speech to the American people after the World War II: "This time, do not trust man...do not fool yourself. This war will be long, it will last forever, but let us keep our spirit, our faith, our friendship..." He knows that if the scientists of the United States and the United Kingdom get their act together and find a way to defeat the Nazi race, human beings will have a reason to live.
Bruce Banner's life changes drastically after this event. He takes off as a research scientist at the United States Military'sicle. He meets the very attractive Betty Britten, a girl from his past. They are soulmates - with Betty being the only one who knows about his past. Bruce starts to work on some top secret projects involving radiation and gamma radiation.
The third storyline focuses on the ultimate battle between the forces of good and evil. In this issue, General Thunderbolt Ross is killed. Bruce and Betty join the forces of good against the villains. Incredible Hulk trivia - the Hulk's appearance is very similar to the appearance of the Incredible Hulk, as he was the last remnant of the Hulk's home planet. As you can imagine, this made the comic book series look even more ridiculous.
Incredible Hulk is an incredibly fun book to read. It contains so many twists and turns, that it sometimes makes you go back and re-read in a effort to figure out how it all started. And that's the beauty of it. Like with most comic books, you just have to read it a few times. It's that addictive.
If you enjoyed the previous issues, I suggest that you pick up issues #4 and 5-the powerhouse issues of the series. It's absolutely fantastic. And oh so short. Just a five-issue epic story about the last remnant of the Hulk. If you have never enjoyed a comic book series quite like the Incredible Hulk, I highly recommend picking up a copy.
