Background: Physically and mentally abused as a child, Bruce Banner managed to live a fairly healthy life, becoming a noted scientist and expert on gamma radiation. Commissioned by the U.S. Army to create a gamma bomb, Bruce was inadvertantly caught in an explosion of gamma radiation. Miraculously surviving, Bruce soon learned that when he became angry he would change into an enormous green-skinned creature of unlimited strength and rage. Now hunted and pursued, Bruce seeks to make his way in the world and to control the raging beast inside of him.
