Now that we've seen the entire Hulk Vs. Wolverine animated movie and a trailer for Hulk Vs. Thor, we're wondering, why stop there? Who - or what - else should Marvel's less-popular-than-Iron Man character take on in any potential future episodes of this direct-to-DVD series? We take a look at some unlikely candidates under the jump.Thinking about it all, the possibilities are endless. Why should the Hulk be stuck fighting other Marvel superheroes when he could do so much more? Below are just four ideas of how Marvel could better use their unstoppable jade muscle machine and take the character to a whole new level.
Hulk Vs. Superman: Sure, they belong to different comic book companies, but that doesn't mean that it's never happened before. And what could be more epic than a clash of the titans where an alien represents the best in humanity faces off against a monster that personifies the destructive horror of man's creativity? They could even call it "When failed movie franchises fight!" Hulk Vs. Hulk: No, I'm not talking about an animated version of Jeph Loeb's current "Red Hulk" storyline - although that might be fun, come to think of it - but instead a sensitive look at the psychological issues that have fragmented Bruce Banner's mind to such an extent that he feels the need to create alternate personalities that happen to be green and monstrous. Bring Dr. Phil in to make that long-awaited breakthrough or something. But with additional punching. Hulk Vs. The Beyonder: The closest that we'll ever get to "Hulk Vs. God" without the religious right trying to destroy Marvel Comics, bringing back the omnipotent being behind Secret Wars and Secret Wars II in order for him to get the cosmic crap beaten out've him could be the ultimate capper to the series. And for an additional plus, Hulk can then go after Galactus, who was once rumored to have started out as another stand-in for the Almighty. And then he could take on Jesus, just for fun.
Hulk Vs. Institutionalized Racism:This is the one what will win awards, trust me. Hulk comes face to face with the prejudice rampant across America, as Marvel can finally answer the oft-asked question "Which is more destructive? A giant green monster tearing apart real estate in a blind rage, or the hatred hidden deep in man's heart?" head-on. It practically writes itself, as well; who wouldn't want to see the scene where the Hulk stares down some old rich white guy and says, "Puny human hates people who aren't white like him? Well, Hulk is green! What is puny human gonna do about that?" before, well, smashing something. And once he's taken care of that problem, the sky really will be the limit. Think about it: Hulk Vs.
