X. PROFESSOR HULK STRENGTH


The Professor Hulk. Originally thought to be a merger of the Banner, Savage Hulk and Gray Hulk identities, it was later revealed that this persona was a wholly distinct fourth one.

(please log in to view the image)

The Professor Hulk possessed all of Banner's intellect, the Savage Hulk's strength and Mr. Fixit's attitude. Due to brain damage caused by shrapnel, the Professor Hulk persona would warp into the Maestro, a self-styled villain for the rest of the world to unite against. In terms of strength, the Professor Hulk actually started off much stronger than the Savage Hulk. He also could ramp up his strength at a rapid pace. The only limiting factor to his strength was a mental fail-safe he created: should he completely lose control and become overly enraged, he would revert back to puny Banner.


LIFTING

It bears repeating that Professor Hulk was stronger than Savage Hulk, and various authorities were acutely aware of this, "Actually, he's bigger, greener, and stronger than ever." From Incredible Hulk #391:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...espect09391.jpg

Professor Hulk is strong enough to toss around Dr. Octopus despite the latter's adamantium tentacles, from Spider-Man #23:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Spiderman23.jpg

Even at a standstill, he can easily drag around Dr. Octopus in an almost casual manner, from Incredible Hulk #396:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ifting02396.jpg

A cliffside's worth of rubble poses little obstacle to Professor Hulk in Tales to Astonish #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...fting03TTA1.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...fting04TTA1.jpg


PRESSING

(please log in to view the image)

In a friendly match of arm-wrestling, Thing visibly and audibly strains to gain an edge... and completely fails to budge him to the casual amusement of Professor Hulk in Incredible Hulk Annual #18:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...g02Annual18.jpg

The Toad Men's magnetic repulsion weapons designed to lock onto the hemoglobin in his body fail to hold back Professor Hulk in Over The Edge #3:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...verTheEdge3.jpg

Professor Hulk can exert so much pressure that he can press straight through an all-out Vector's attack even when he's literally reduced to a near skeletal state in Incredible Hulk #398:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...essing01398.jpg


FLEXING

The lack of leverage poses little problem to Professor Hulk. Here he easily breaks out of a reverse bear hug from Ajax in Incredible Hulk #381:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...lexing01381.jpg

Professor Hulk clowns X-Factor's Strong Guy with a swift headlock in Incredible Hulk #391:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...lexing02391.jpg

When he wrestles with his old foe, Glob, Professor Hulk states matter-of-factly that he's now much stronger... and Glob clearly believes it in Incredible Hulk #389:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...rength01389.jpg

The monstrous Man-Thing attempts to smother Professor Hulk with his body but is violently flexed off in Incredible Hulk #428:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...lexing03428.jpg

The Toad Men's magnetic cage forced tremendous pressure but even without any sort of leverage, Professor Hulk manages to flex and exert sufficient counter-pressure to overload the machine and free himself in Over The Edge #3:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...verTheEdge3.jpg


TEARING

Poor Spider-Man, his webs are quite literally useless against Hulk. And that includes Professor Hulk, who tears right through two cartridges worth of em with a single hand in Amazing Spider-Man #382:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ing01ASM382.jpg

Even Venom's stronger webbing is about as useful as spit as shown in Incredible Hulk Vs Venom #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...2IHvsVenom1.jpg

The very bedrock underground is easily tunneled through with his bare hands, from Incredible Hulk #411:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...earing03411.jpg

X. PROFESSOR HULK STRENGTH (cont'd)


STAMINA

Professor Hulk possesses extraordinary endurance. His capacity for gaining a second wind is on full display here when he gets brought down by Troyjan weaponry and recovers with an angry start in Incredible Hulk #413:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...tamina01413.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

Goading the world to attack him, the Maestro backs up his challenge by combating a Thor in the throes of Warrior Madness for an hour without giving any ground in Incredible Hulk #440:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...tamina03440.jpg

One of the most impressive feats of stamina of any Hulk incarnation, Professor Hulk single-handedly fights the hordes of Hel for hours, then for days on end in Incredible Hulk #423:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...tamina02423.jpg


STRIKING POWER

Professor Hulk can dish out punishment at a top tier level. Here, Ironclad charges him like a raging bull and is topped hard in his tracks with a stiff palm to the chest in Incredible Hulk #397:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...gPower04397.jpg

Thing realizes the painful way that Professor Hulk "still packs a heckuva wallop" when he piledrives him straight down several floors in Fantastic Four #374:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ower09FF374.jpg

Reinforced blast doors designed to withstand a nuclear strike don't bar Professor Hulk's way in Incredible Hulk #410:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...gPower08410.jpg

A small flick of the finger knocks Electro out cold in Spider-Man #19:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Spiderman19.jpg

Dr. Octopus gets the finger as well, swiftly ending his crime spree in Incredible Hulk #396:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...gPower02396.jpg

Even the New Warriors' strongman Rage gets sent flying with a casual knuckle to the face in Night Thrasher #15:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...tThrasher15.jpg

Doc Sampson amped by a gamma virus is nearly beat to death by Professor Hulk in Amazing Spider-Man #381:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...wer11ASM381.jpg

It bears repeating. Professor Hulk dishes out punishment at a top tier level. With a pair of punches, a livid Professor Hulk knocks off Juggernaut's helmet and brings him to his knees in Incredible Hulk #404:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...gPower06404.jpg

Even the Immortal Hercules begrudgingly recognizes his power in Incredible Hulk #404:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...rength02404.jpg

Here, Professor Hulk lays out a Power Gem-wielding Drax the Destroyer with a punch in Warlock and the Infinity Watch #12:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Power10IW12.jpg


SHOCKWAVES

Professor Hulk amped by a gamma virus send Doc Sampson flying helplessly with a leaping stomp in Amazing Spider-Man #382:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ave01ASM382.jpg

Moments later, Spider-Man gets the wind completely knocked out of him by a shockwave caused by fist to the ground:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Shockwave02.jpg

Even a careless snap of his fingers causes shockwaves staggering those around him in Incredible Hulk #438:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...gPower13438.jpg


THUNDERCLAPS

Johnny Storm's flames can't withstand Professor Hulk's thunderclap in Fantastic Four #374:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...clap05FF374.jpg

Venom suffers mightily due to the sonic concussions caused by two point-blank thunderclaps in Incredible Hulk Vs Venom #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...7IHvsVenom1.jpg

Here he sends Ironclad, Hotshot and Ogress flying with a vicious thunderclap in Incredible Hulk #398:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...erclap03398.jpg

He stuns Black Knight, Crystal, Sersi and even Immortal Hercules with another thunderclap in Incredible Hulk #404:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...erclap04404.jpg

XI. PROFESSOR HULK DURABILITY


Professor Hulk's durability also started off much higher than Savage Hulk's. And his capacity for shrugging off attacks of physical force, energy projection, temperature extremes, piercing, chemical and mental attacks is equally, if not moreso, impressive.


BLUNT FORCE

Professor Hulk's ability to withstand blunt force easily ranks among top tiers. Here he isn't budged by a rumbling train and protects a small boy in Hulk/Pitt #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...15HulkPitt1.jpg

Captain America's pressure point move meets with spectacular failure in Incredible Hulk #406 and later, a shield bash to his head from behind barely registers:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...kBlunt05406.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...HulkBlunt06.jpg

Rage's blows come off as rather pathetic as he can't even manage to make Professor Hulk blink with free shots to the face in Night Thrasher #15:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...tThrasher15.jpg

Thing can't even interrupt Professor Hulk's lecturing with a clean shot to the gut in Fantastic Four #374:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...lunt07FF374.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

Wonder Man doesn't make Professor Hulk flinch despite throwing a tank directly at his face in Wonder Man #26:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...WonderMan26.jpg

An ambush from above by an amped Doc Sampson is quickly shrugged off in Amazing Spider-Man #381:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...unt09ASM381.jpg

In a rare display of reasonability, Professor Hulk stops fighting and casually permits an unaware Iron Man in his Hulkbuster armor to get in a few more ineffectual shots in Iron Man #305:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...3Ironman305.jpg

Professor Hulk doesn't even miss a step after taking a haymaker from Namor in the driving rain in Namor, the Sub-Mariner Annual #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...amorAnnual1.jpg

He's traded punches with the Juggernaut in Incredible Hulk #402:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...kBlunt03402.jpg

Same with Immortal Hercules in Incredible Hulk #404:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...kBlunt04404.jpg

Same with Drax the Destroyer w/ Power Gem in Warlock and the Infinity Watch #13:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...nityWatch13.jpg

Professor Hulk barehands a hammer swing from Red Norvell and stops it easily in Incredible Hulk #422:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...kBlunt14422.jpg


PIERCING

(please log in to view the image)

Like all other Hulks, Professor Hulk is completely bulletproof. From Incredible Hulk #379, 391, 396, and 400:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ercing01379.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ercing04391.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ercing06396.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ercing08400.jpg

Punisher even manages to land a bullet directly onto his eye and even assuming it bounces off his eyelid, Professor Hulk still doesn't flinch in Incredible Hulk #395:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ercing05395.jpg

A well-aimed shot into his ear by Sabra's energy quills only throws off his balance briefly in Incredible Hulk #387:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...olverinev27.jpg

A helicopter's spinning rotor blades don't penetrate his thick hide in Incredible Hulk #396:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...kPiercing07.jpg

Speedfreak's adamantium blades cause superficial damage in Incredible Hulk #388:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ercing03388.jpg

Robotic jaws that purportedly "can crush adamantium in 7.3 seconds" do not do much at all to Professor Hulk's exposed neck in Incredible Hulk: Future Imperfect #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...eImperfect1.jpg

XI. PROFESSOR HULK DURABILITY (cont'd)


EXTREME TEMPERATURES

Professor Hulk can withstand great variances in temperature. Engulfed in alien-borne fire does little more than singe him in Incredible Hulk #443:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...rature04443.jpg

Most burn at the touch of the Man-Thing, but Professor Hulk can withstand it long enough to fight back in Incredible Hulk #428:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...rature03428.jpg

Here, he shrugs off being frozen solid in Incredible Hulk #396:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...rature01396.jpg

Indeed, he professes that he never feels extremes of temperature (not the case when he confronts the cold of Hela's realm), from Incredible Hulk #423:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...rature02423.jpg


ENERGY

Professor Hulk possesses a greater resistance to energy than the average Savage Hulk. Here, he easily shrugs off Electro's blasts in Spider-Man #19:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Spiderman19.jpg

He makes a joke at the expense of X-ray's barrage of blasts in Incredible Hulk #397:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...shAvengers4.jpg

He shrugs off blasts from the Mindless Ones in Dr. Strange, Sorcerer Supreme #50:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...erSupreme50.jpg

Sersi's eyeblasts manage to knock him over but not much else in Incredible Hulk #404:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Energy05404.jpg

A barrage of ultra sonics doesn't slow Professor Hulk down in Incredible Hulk #436:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Energy07436.jpg

A lightning bolt only makes Professor Hulk's hair stand on end in Incredible Hulk Annual #18:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...y06Annual18.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

And a barrage of lightning from Thor only stuns Professor Hulk in Incredible Hulk #440:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Energy08440.jpg

Later, after an hour of fighting Thor gripped in Warrior Madness, he survives a ground-zero atomic blast:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Energy09440.jpg


MENTAL

Mentallo finds that controlling Professor Hulk is much harder than he anticipated in Incredible Hulk #403:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Mental01403.jpg

Eventually, his rage powers him past Mentallo's control even with Red Skull's machinery at full power. The psychic backlash would be so powerful that it would knock out Avengers like Sersi and the Immortal Hercules, from Incredible Hulk #403:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Mental02404.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ulkMental03.jpg


MISCELLANEOUS

The mutant Havok reveals that he can forcibly drain the gamma rays empowering Professor Hulk but that doesn't stop his advance, forcing him to threaten him with a fullpower blast in Incredible Hulk #391:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...aining01391.jpg

XII. PROFESSOR HULK SPEED


AGILITY

Professor Hulk could stand toe-to-toe with the best of em, but he's also displayed surprising agility in his fights. Here he easily weaves beneath Abomination's punch and deftly puts him into an armbar in Incredible Hulk #383:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...gility01383.jpg

Here he dodges Speedfreak's attacks until he sets him up exactly where he wants him in Incredible Hulk #388:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...gility02388.jpg

He flips over the bestial Pitt and performs a takedown from behind in Hulk/Pitt #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...03HulkPitt1.jpg


LEAPING

Professor Hulk literally chases down a jet with his leaps in Incredible Hulk #409:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...lkLeap01409.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...rHulkLeap02.jpg

He soars through the sky Superman-style to get some alone time in Incredible Hulk #409:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...lkLeap03427.jpg

He jumps so high he breaks through cloud cover with a single bound in Incredible Hulk #431:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...lkLeap04431.jpg


XIII. PROFESSOR HULK POWERS


TRANSFORMATION

As noted earlier, the Professor Hulk persona was a distinct fourth personality. Doc Sampson was partially responsible for its emergence during a psychological session where he attempted to resolve the increasingly unstable conflicts between his Banner, Savage Hulk and Gray Hulk personalities. From Incredible Hulk #376-77:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...mation01376.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...formation02.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...mation03377.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...formation04.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...formation05.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...formation06.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

However, this merger turned out to be a farce. Angela Lipscombe, an old colleague of Bruce Banner, calls out Doc Sampson when she notices that the Professor Hulk persona was too macho, narcissistic ... and left-handed. Doc Sampson had hoped that this new persona would mesh with Banner's, but it never did. From Incredible Hulk vol.2 #16:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ation07v216.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...formation08.jpg

One of the more interesting twists of the Professor Hulk persona was revealed when he went berserk at the scene of Betty Ross crushed by rubble. It turned out that if he went too overboard with rage, he would revert to puny "Savage Banner." In other words, a childlike uncontrollable monster in the body of a 98 lb. weakling. From Incredible Hulk #426-27:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...mation11425.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...formation12.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...mation13426.jpg


AMPING

While this mental fail-safe might suggest that Professor Hulk's ability to amp off of increased anger was crippled, that proved rarely the case. For the most part, Savage Banner only emerged a handful of times when he went utterly berserk, usually when Betty Ross' life was endangered. Accordingly, Professor Hulk could still amp his strength in times of great stress and anger and he did so at a far greater rate than Gray Hulk. From Incredible Hulk #413:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Amping03413.jpg

Bruce Banner's calculating mind did not inhibit his anger building either, as he explains to Ajax, "The old Bruce Banner, when he had the Hulk's body, couldn't get madder and stronger. But this is the new Bruce Banner. And the new Hulk. Getting madder isn't a problem with me. Neither is getting stronger." From Incredible Hulk #379:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Amping01379.jpg

As per usual, all physical traits of Professor Hulk increased when he amped, including his durability. Here, a previous blast from Trow-Mah had blown a hole clean through his torso, but the second time around his blasts are easily tanked. From Incredible Hulk #394:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Factor01394.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Amping02394.jpg


HEALING FACTOR

Some of Hulk's greatest healing feats have occurred during his stint as the Professor Hulk. As noted earlier, Professor Hulk's healing factor proved capable of healing his guts being blown straight through by Trow-Mah in Incredible Hulk #394:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Factor01394.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

Here, Vector literally sheers the flesh off of Professor Hulk with an extended barrage and within a few panels, Professor Hulk grows it all completely back in Incredible Hulk #398:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Factor02398.jpg

Professor Hulk gets several holes blown right through his body by a cannon invented by Forge and in the space of pages he heals enough to renew his fight against his evil future self, the Maestro in Incredible Hulk: Future Imperfect #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...eImperfect2.jpg

A gaping wound caused by Speedfreak's adamantium blades heals so quickly, that it literally heals around Professor Hulk's hand in Incredible Hulk #430:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Factor04430.jpg

In the space of panels, damage to his brain stem caused by Ant-Man is healed. Indeed, the healing factor works so quickly that Ant-Man can barely travel through the incisions he makes and has to resort to shrinking himself even further to make it past, from Incredible Hulk vol.2 #32:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...actor05v232.jpg

XIV. MINDLESS HULK STRENGTH


The Mindless Hulk is mostly a catch-all category for the number of times the Banner personality was either deeply sublimated within or physically separated apart from the Hulk itself. The adjective, "Mindless," is actually a bit of a misnomer as the base Hulk identity always possessed some intelligence and a personality of his own.

(please log in to view the image)

There have been several extended episodes where Banner was separated from Hulk. The first occurred when Banner committed mental suicide with the help of Dr. Strange to free himself from the cycle of violence that had peaked when Nightmare unleashed him on Earth. The second episode occurred when Doc Sampson used an experimental nutrient bath to separate the two. The third episode came when the eruption of Onslaught's reality-warping powers split Banner from Hulk. The most recent episode occurred when Dr. Doom surgically separated the two. Each occurrence proved detrimental as one (or both) would eventually deteriorate physically or mentally. In any event, the Mindless Hulk would rarely restrain himself and having no human element within him, would demonstrate feats of strength surpassing the previous Hulk incarnations covered so far.


LIFTING

Here, Mindless Hulk literally lifts the ground from out beneath the army's feet in Incredible Hulk #300:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ifting01300.jpg

Mindless Hulk does the same to Doc Sampson in Incredible Hulk #317:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ifting02317.jpg

Mindless Hulk lifts and tosses ships, cars and any other debris lying around to create a dam to protect a town from tidal waves in Incredible Hulk #452:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ifting03452.jpg


PRESSING

At the peak of his powers, Vector quite literally repels reality to force back Mindless Hulk, but even this is not enough to hold him back in Incredible Hulk #299:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...essing01299.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...kPressing02.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...kPressing03.jpg

Iron Man's Silver Centurion armor is quite literally crushed by Mindless Hulk's grip in Incredible Hulk #316:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...essing04316.jpg

The Thing's own hide is reduced to nothing but dust in Mindless Hulk's crushing hands. From Incredible Hulk vol.3 #12:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...kPressing07.jpg

Mindless Hulk amped by Apocalypse's technology manages the impossible, he forces Juggernaut's charge to a complete stop in Incredible Hulk #457:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...essing05457.jpg

FLEXING

A Hulkbuster's arms are completely torn off when Mindless Hulk flexes his arms forward in Incredible Hulk #320:

The Mindless Hulk wrestles off the combined effort of Iron Man, Wonder Man, Namor and the Immortal Hercules to restrain him in Incredible Hulk #321:

Without any leverage whatsoever, the Mindless Hulk flexes and tears through castrodinium bonds in Incredible Hulk #446:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...lexing03446.jpg


TEARING

Prison bars might as well be made of putty to Mindless Hulk. From Incredible Hulk #452:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...earing03452.jpg

"He's shredding laser-honed high-tensile cobalt steel like confetti!" From Incredible Hulk #320:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...earing01320.jpg

Mindless Hulk tears apart Iron Man's armor to pieces in Incredible Hulk #321:

XIV. MINDLESS HULK STRENGTH (cont'd)


STAMINA

Mindless Hulk possesses endurance is nearly limitless. Here, despite having no food, he travels across a landscape for the better part of a week to reach a gigantic mountain located in one of the Crossroad dimensions. But that's not even the end of it. Once he reaches the mountain, he climbs it "for days without number, weeks without end." From Incredible Hulk Annual #13:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...a01Annual13.jpg

This near limitless stamina shows in fights as well. Here he battles Doc Sampson "for almost six full hours" without showing any side of tiring in Incredible Hulk #317:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...tamina02317.jpg

Here, Mindless Hulk tags along underneath a cargo ship and doesn't even come up for air for six whole days. From Fear Itself #7:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...tamina03FI7.jpg


STRIKING POWER

(please log in to view the image)

A Mindless Hulk literally tears Nightmare's Realm apart in Incredible Hulk #299:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ckwave01299.jpg

Because he rarely restrained his incredible strength, Mindless Hulk was capable of delivering devastatingly powerful blows to his foes. Here, he sends Luke Cage flying across Manhattan through several buildings and knocks him unconscious with a single shot in Incredible Hulk #300:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...gPower01300.jpg

Later on, despite increasing his molecular density to that of a diamond and bracing himself, Mindless Hulk pounds Vision straight through the ground:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...kingPower02.jpg

His blows against Onslaught were tremendous. "The air rang with atomic thunder. For miles in every direction, windows shattered... ground trembled." From Onslaught: Marvel Universe #1:

Indeed, it was his pure strength that released his final form, a shot delivered from the ground without any leverage:

As Apocalypse's Horseman, War, he sends Juggernaut careening into Cairo in Incredible Hulk #457:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...gPower08410.jpg

Despite being miles underground in the Earth's mantle, he sends one of Banner's strongest gamma-irradiated minions flying straight through miles of solid rock, miles of ocean floor, miles of ocean water and finally, miles of air where he eventually lands in a mountain. From Incredible Hulk vol.3 #3:

SHOCKWAVES

In the Crossroads, the shockwave produced when he clashes with Ironclad is so devastating, it "reverberates along the pathways leading from the Crossroads to an infinite number of dimensions... causing cataclysmic upheavals and unimaginable destruction." From Incredible Hulk #305:

(please log in to view the image)

As his fight continues against Banner's minions, seismologists register 5.6 earthquakes with readings "like there's a whole series of bombs going off in the Earth's mantle." The catastrophic effects are felt across the globe as sinkholes form in the Middle East's deserts, fissures form in the West, seas churn, icebergs split and volcanoes erupt. Simply incredible:

THUNDERCLAPS

Infantry are rendered helpless by a Mindless Hulk's thunderclap in Incredible Hulk #447:

Johnny Storm's flames can't withstand Mindless Hulk's thunderclap any better than he could any other Hulk's. From Incredible Hulk #300:

Vapor of the U-Foes is completely dispersed by one of his thunderclaps in Heroes for Hire #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...oesforHire1.jpg

Gladiator of the Shi'ar Imperial Guard is utterly stunned by a thunderclap to his head with "[o]nly the thinness of the atmosphere sav[ing] Gladiator from deafness..." From Incredible Hulk Annual 1997:

XV. MINDLESS HULK DURABILITY


It goes without saying that Mindless Hulk's durability was just as seemingly limitless as his strength was. He was nearly impervious to physical force, energy projection, temperature extremes, piercing, chemical and mental attacks.


BLUNT FORCE

A semi truck crashes into Mindless Hulk and doesn't budge him in the slightest in Incredible Hulk #459:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...kBlunt06459.jpg

The speedster Northstar rains a hundred blows in the same spot on Mindless Hulk, just managing to hurt him in Alpha Flight #29:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...phaFlight29.jpg

A full-powered Iron Fist is squelched in Mindless Hulk's hand and driven back into Danny in Incredible Hulk #300:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...kBlunt01300.jpg

Later on, Mindless Hulk withstands an all-out Thor raining blow after blow on him:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...HulkBlunt02.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...HulkBlunt03.jpg

A combined assault by Namor, Iron Man, Wonder Man and the Immortal Hercules doesn't stop Mindless Hulk in Incredible Hulk #300:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...kBlunt05321.jpg


PIERCING

(please log in to view the image)

It should go without saying that Mindless Hulk is completely bulletproof. From Incredible Hulk #447, 450, and vol.3 #8:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ercing02447.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ercing03450.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ercing06v38.jpg

A "600 caliber elephant gun loaded with gamma-dipped, armor-piercing ammo" doesn't stop Mindless Hulk in Incredible Hulk vol.3 #6:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ercing05v36.jpg

Explosive arrows that can stop tanks don't even slow down Mindless Hulk's charge in Incredible Hulk #324:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ercing01324.jpg

Wolverine's bone claws don't leave a scratch on his exposed throat in Incredible Hulk #454:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ercing04454.jpg


EXTREME TEMPERATURES

Napalm does little more than char his flesh in Incredible Hulk #300:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...rature01300.jpg

Human Torch's flames don't do much against Mindless Hulk and even he knows it. From Incredible Hulk #300:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...mperature02.jpg

Neither does Banner's liquid lava cannon in Incredible Hulk vol.3 #6:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...rature04v36.jpg

Mindless Hulk literally wades through molten magma without issue in Incredible Hulk vol.3 #3:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...rature03v33.jpg

The atomic fires from a gamma bomb serve only to burn away his hair in Incredible Hulk vol.3 #7:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ature04av37.jpg

Indeed, such extreme temperatures like molten lava serve to only soothe Mindless Hulk in the fashion of a hot bath. Sitting around in icy mountains doesn't bother him either. From Incredible Hulk vol.3 #7:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ature05v371.jpg

XV. MINDLESS HULK DURABILITY (cont'd)


ENERGY

In the past, bombarding Hulk with gamma rays sometimes served to revert him back to Banner. Vision and Captain Marvel attempt the gambit and fail in Incredible Hulk #300:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Energy02300.jpg

Reverse polarity tactics don't work either. Here, Mindless Hulk no sells antigamma bursts in Incredible Hulk #299:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Energy01299.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

The varieties of energy he can withstand are aptly illustrated here when infrared, ultraviolet, cosmic rays, and every other deadly form of radiant energy that Captain Marvel tries do nothing to Mindless Hulk. From Incredible Hulk #321:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Energy04321.jpg

Iron Man's repulsor rays are insignificant to Mindless Hulk, from Incredible Hulk #321:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ulkEnergy06.jpg

Banner's "drum-magazine shotgun firing 40-million volt vibranium flechete taser rounds" are shrugged off by Mindless Hulk in Incredible Hulk vol.3 #6:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Energy08v36.jpg

Mindless Hulk survives a gamma bomb detonation blast at ground zero in Incredible Hulk vol.3 #7:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Energy09v37.jpg

He's even taken on the Silver Surfer's blasts in Silver Surfer #125:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ergy07SS125.jpg


MENTAL

As a being of pure rage, Starfox's mental powers are useless, from Incredible Hulk #300:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Mental01300.jpg

Mindless Hulk's emotions are so overpowering that they overwhelm Vision, who attempted a desperate gambit and merged with his psyche in Incredible Hulk #323:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Mental02323.jpg

XV. MINDLESS HULK DURABILITY (cont'd)


DRAINING

Because Mindless Hulk was so unrestrained when he first emerged, numerous individuals attempted to drain his gamma energy. All met with failure. Rom's neutralizer drains another gamma-irradiated being but does nothing to stave Mindless Hulk's strength in Incredible Hulk #296:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...aining01296.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

Energy draining chains are snapped by Mindless Hulk in Incredible Hulk #307:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...aining02307.jpg

Energy lances that drained Klaatu, a monstrous entity that could feed on planets and stars, are torn free from him by the Mindless Hulk who resists their energy draining in Incredible Hulk #307:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...kDraining03.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...kDraining04.jpg

An energy-draining field created by missiles fail to siphon enough gamma energy and he shakes them off in Incredible Hulk #454:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...aining05454.jpg


CHEMICAL

Vapor morphs into searing acidic gases and enters Mindless Hulk's lungs. Mindless Hulk expels her with a mighty heave in Incredible Hulk #305:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...emical01305.jpg

The X-Men's attempts to use sleeping gas to calm him down fail in Incredible Hulk #455:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Mental03455.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

Banner's "anti-tank grenade launcher with anthrax-laden shrapnel" doesn't even slow Mindless Hulk down in Incredible Hulk vol.3 #6:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...emical02v36.jpg


MISCELLANEOUS

Vision's phasing powers fail to stop Mindless Hulk in Incredible Hulk #300:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...hasing01300.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

In fact, the Mindless Hulk's form is so powerful that he's actually rebounded the phasing effect back onto Vision causing feedback and actually entrapping Vision within his body in Incredible Hulk #323:

XVI. MINDLESS HULK SPEED


AGILITY

(please log in to view the image)

The Mindless Hulk was just as fast as any Hulk. Iron Man and Wonder Man experience his speed for themselves, with Wonder Man exclaiming, "How can anything so big move so fast?!?" From Incredible Hulk #316:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...gility03316.jpg

S.H.I.E.L.D. pilots don't even "dream that the Hulk would be swift enough to snatch a speeding hoverflier from the air," but he obviously is. From Incredible Hulk #298:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...gility01298.jpg

Here, Mindless Hulk hurtles himself through a riot squad in Incredible Hulk #299:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...gility02299.jpg


LEAPING

(please log in to view the image)

Mindless Hulk, separated from Banner by the Unipower, leaps straight up hundreds of miles into outer space with a single bound to catch a nuclear warhead in Incredible Hulk Annual #10:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...p01Annual10.jpg

And these leaps only require "scarcely more than a twitch" of his muscles in Incredible Hulk #314:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...lkLeap03314.jpg

Remember those transcontinental trips Savage Hulk would make? Here, Mindless Hulk uses his leaps to travel from the Florida Keys all the way to Mole Man's Monster Island... which is in the Sea of Japan. From Sensational Spider-Man #14:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Spiderman14.jpg

Another time he uses his leaps to travel from an island in the South Pacific all the way to Latveria to confront Dr. Doom. Afterwards, he leaps back. From Incredible Hulk vol.3 #7:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...lkLeap05v37.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...sHulkLeap06.jpg

XVII. MINDLESS HULK POWERS


TRANSFORMATION

As referenced earlier, the Mindless Hulk isn't exactly a persona but the lack of one. Through various causes, this has happened several times for extended periods of time. The first time, Banner committed mental suicide to stop Nightmare's exploitation of his monstrous side. This led to Dr. Strange famously banishing this Mindless Hulk to the Crossroads. From Incredible Hulk #299-301:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...mation01299.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...formation02.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...mation03301.jpg

Banner eventually re-emerged after experiencing an emotional catharsis in the Crossroads in Incredible Hulk #312. Afterwards, Doc Sampson separated Banner from the Hulk using an experimental nutrient bath in Incredible Hulk #315. However, this split was unstable and was killing both Banner and Mindless Hulk by effecting their molecular cohesion. Mindless Hulk was unable to amp due to this, as revealed in Incredible Hulk #321-23:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...mation05312.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...mation06315.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...formation07.jpg

http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ation08a321.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ation08b322.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ation08c323.jpg

The third time they were separated was when Jean Grey used her telepathy to shut down the Banner side and in a twist, Onslaught's reality-warping powers effected the banishment of Banner physically in Onslaught: Marvel Universe #1. Despite feeling stronger at first, one of the side-effects of this split was that the dimensional energies of Franklin's pocket dimension were channeled into Mindless Hulk's body. This weakened his body's physical durability and was actually slowly killing him as discovered by Dr. Strange, from Incredible Hulk #349-50:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ughtMarvel1.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...formation10.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...formation11.jpg

http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...mation12449.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...mation13450.jpg

The most recent separation occurred as recently as Fear Itself #7. As revealed in Incredible Hulk vol.3 #5, the operation was performed by none other than Dr. Doom. This separation, however, also had another side-effect: it drove Bruce Banner insane. From Incredible Hulk vol.3 #13:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...FearItself7.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...formation15.jpg

http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...mation16v35.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...formation17.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ation18v313.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...formation19.jpg


AMPING

(please log in to view the image)

Except when separated by Doc Sampson's nutrient bath, Mindless Hulk did amp. When banished to the Crossroads, he amps against a N'astirh demon in Incredible Hulk #308:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Amping02308.jpg

Here, he amps against Onslaught for the coup de grace that released his psionic form in Onslaught: Marvel Universe #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ughtMarvel1.jpg

After Doom separated them, Mindless Hulk went after Banner and his island of horrors. "They say the angrier I get. The stronger it makes me. And I was way past angry a long time ago." From Incredible Hulk vol.3 #5:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Amping03v35.jpg


HEALING FACTOR

Mad scientists note, "There's not a microbe on Earth that could live more than half a microsecond in the Hulk's bloodstream." From Incredible Hulk Annual #14:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...r01Annual14.jpg

In one of the more gruesomely impressive feats of healing, Mindless Hulk literally rips off half his head and heals it back. From Incredible Hulk #446:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Factor02446.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ingFactor03.jpg

Being weakened by the dimensional forces flowing through him, Mindless Hulk gets shredded by a berserk Wolverine and Wendigo. But before Wolverine can even catch his breath, Mindless Hulk is back on his feet and uncharacteristically spares the two a severe beating. From Marvel Fanfare vol.2 #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...lFanfarev22.jpg

The speed he heals at is shown here, when Mindless Hulk heals a cut from Deadpool's sword in the space of two panels in Deadpool #4:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...05Deadpool4.jpg

Here, Gladiator pierces Mindless Hulk's chest with eye beams burning through to his insides. Mindless Hulk powers past the pain and defeats him anyway in Incredible Hulk 1997:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...6Annual1997.jpg

When Apocalypse transformed Mindless Hulk into the Horseman War, he had to tear out the full body implants that were bonded to his very flesh. From Incredible Hulk #457:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Factor07457.jpg

Here, Dr. Doom is able to perform open brain surgery when separating Banner from Hulk... while he's conscious, from Incredible Hulk vol.3 #5:

XVIII. WORLD WAR HULK STRENGTH


Haarg. Green Scar. Harkanon. Eye of Anger. Holku. World Breaker. He went by several different names but the crossover event bears the name used here: World War Hulk. While not so much a wholly different persona, it refers specifically to a Hulk defined and driven by the rage he experienced on Sakaar.

(please log in to view the image)

"During his time on Sakaar, I think he finally found a place where he belonged, a community that embraced him, and he rose to the occasion, taking responsibility for the welfare of an entire nation, drawing radically different groups of people together, forging a hard-earned peace and, on an intensely personal level, opening himself up to love and family. Now all that's been taken away from him. And his rage is incalculable. But what makes this raging Hulk different from all the others that came before is that his time on Sakaar gave him a community, a mission, an ethos. He comes to Earth not merely as a blindly raging monster, but as a righteous king seeking vengeance. And that utter certainty of the justice of his cause makes him the most dangerous Hulk his opponents have ever faced." - Greg Pak


LIFTING

World War Hulk is the most powerful Hulk ever -- even before his ascension to Worldbreaker levels. And he's proved that time and time again with his feats of strength. Here, he lifts an entire section of the ground and hurls it at a mountain in the distance, breaking it in half. From Incredible Hulk vol.2 #105:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ting01v2105.jpg

He tells Rockslide that he's just thrown his legs to Connecticut. Who doubts his word? From World War Hulk: X-Men #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...02WWHX-Men1.jpg

Here he takes an enormously amped Wendigo tail and starts swinging him around in Incredible Hulks #631:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ifting03631.jpg

World War Hulk amped by Nul, manages to lift himself up despite gravity generators holding him down with gravity 100x that of Jupiter in Fear Itself: Hulk Vs Dracula #3:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ulkDracula3.jpg


PRESSING

Green Scar manages to hold his ground against Black Bolt's whisper for a time in World War Hulk #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ssing01WWH1.jpg

Cyclops' max power blast doesn't stop World War Hulk from advancing on him in World War Hulk: X-Men #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...02WWHX-Men2.jpg

Here, he literally squeezes Juggernaut's helmet in World War Hulk: X-Men #3:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...03WWHX-Men3.jpg

He even stalemates Juggernaut's advance causing that unstoppable force to be driven downwards into the reinforced foundations of the X-Mansion:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...HPressing04.jpg

World War Hulk powers straight through Hiro Kala's Old Power blast in Incredible Hulks #616:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...essing05616.jpg

While trying to force him out, an amped World War Hulk take the mystic uru hammer of Nul, Breaker of Worlds, and crushes it between his hands in Fear Itself: Hulk Vs Dracula #3:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ulkDracula3.jpg


FLEXING

World War Hulk wrestles Colossus and bends his arms back onto themselves, crippling him in World War Hulk: X-Men #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...01WWHX-Men2.jpg

When his deltoids are stabbed by vibranium knives, he simply flexes them out in World War Hulk: X-Men #3:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...02WWHX-Men3.jpg

A vaporous entity from Pandora's box measured to possess 133.45 Hercs (a unit equivalent to the maximum amount of energy Hercules could expend in one blow) is forcibly inhaled by World War Hulk's lungs in a single mighty breath and destroyed. From Incredible Hulks #627 and 629:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...lexing03627.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...lexing04629.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...WHFlexing05.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...WHFlexing06.jpg


TEARING

Green Scar easily tears Rockslide's limbs off in World War Hulk: X-Men #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...01WWHX-Men1.jpg

He tears tanks apart in World War Hulk #3:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...aring02WWH3.jpg

Here, he tears a mystically shielded vault off its hinges in Incredible Hulks #626:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...earing03626.jpg

And an amped World War Hulk literally tears apart adamantium netting in Fear Itself: Hulk Vs Dracula #3:

XVIII. WORLD WAR HULK STRENGTH (cont'd)


STAMINA

World War Hulk's stamina was virtually limitless -- far above that of even Savage Hulk. Whereas Savage Hulk exhausted himself in six minutes "dealing" with Umar, World War Hulk was running strong after three hours. From Defenders vol.3 #3 and Incredible Hulks #633:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...efendersv33.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...tamina01633.jpg

There isn't really anybody in comics who gets a second wind like World War Hulk. After Bruce and Bob beat the alter-egos out of each other, a spike of anger just brings back a seemingly exhausted World War Hulk to full power... and beyond. From World War Hulk #5:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...mping02WWH5.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...WWHAmping03.jpg


STRIKING POWER

World War Hulk hit harder than any previous Hulk, and his striking power is nearly unparalleled in comics. A double-fisted pound on Iron Man in his Hulkbuster armor brings down Avengers Tower in World War Hulk #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...gPower03397.jpg

Invisible Woman's forcefields crumble after only three shots in World War Hulk #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...kingPower09.jpg

Afterwards, elastic durability means nothing as three shots lay Mr. Fantastic out in a sprawling mess:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...kingPower10.jpg

Here he literally extinguishes Ghost Rider's flame with a vicious stomp in Ghost Rider vol.4 #13:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...stRiderv413.jpg

A defenseless Immortal Hercules is brutalized by the Green Scar in Incredible Hulk vol.2 #107:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ower03v2107.jpg

Strong Guy can't even handle the kinetic force of World War Hulk's punch in World War Hulk: X-Men #3:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...04WWHX-Men3.jpg

World War Hulk was a virtual parade of one-shots. With a single shot, he drives She-Hulk into the ground and incapacitates her completely in World War Hulk #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Power05WWH2.jpg

He does the same to Ares, God of War in the next page:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...kingPower06.jpg

Later, he brings Thing to his knees with a single shot to his head:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...kingPower07.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...kingPower08.jpg

World War Hulk was powerful enough to match an all-out Sentry blow for blow in World War Hulk #5:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Power12WWH5.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

That catalog is impressive on it own, but everything seen above is World War Hulk holding back with his punches. Amadeus Cho confirms that with his abilities in Hulk Vs Hercules: When Titans Collide #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ansCollide1.jpg

Knowing all this, here are further examples of World War Hulk pulling his punches. A casual flick of his finger sends Deadpool flying from New Mexico, hundreds of miles away, to Arizona in Deadpool vol.5 #37:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...eadpoolv537.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...eadpoolv537.jpg

And when he loses patience, he splatters Deadpool. Literally. It would take days before he even came back, despite his near unparalleled healing factor. From Deadpool vol.5 #39:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...eadpoolv539.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...kingPower18.jpg

He punches Skaar nearly out of orbit from West Virginia to Maryland in Incredible Hulk #611:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...WHLeap03611.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...s/WWHLeap04.jpg

Korg professes that Thor hits almost as hard as the Green Scar does... almost. From Incredible Hulks #620:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...gPower14620.jpg

A mutated Miek is punched across a landscape straight through a volcano in Incredible Hulks #625:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...gPower15625.jpg

He punches a platform underneath a gigantic Wendigo and Bi-Beast so hard, he sends them to outer space in Incredible Hulks #631:

So what happens when World War Hulk begins unleashing more of his strength? He becomes the Worldbreaker. And this label is about as literal as you can get. In this state, he takes a simple footstep and threatens the Eastern seaboard. From World War Hulk #5:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...kwave03WWH5.jpg

The Worldbreaker strikes Arm'Chedon straight through one of his own massive ships in Incredible Hulks #632:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...gPower20632.jpg

And the thing is, even hits like that are still examples of him holding back. From Incredible Hulks #634:

XVIII. WORLD WAR HULK STRENGTH (cont'd)


SHOCKWAVES

Some of the strongest punches in comics will inevitably be accompanied by tremendous shockwaves. A fist pound tosses away Korg, Red She-Hulk and A-Bomb like they were leaves in Incredible Hulks #613:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ckwave06613.jpg

Another double-fist pound sends shockwaves rippling across a town in Deadpool vol.5 #39:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...eadpoolv539.jpg

Here, the shockwave produced by his collision with Iron Man in his Hulkbuster armor reverberates throughout Manhattan, shattering windows for blocks around and tossing about helicopters in the air. From World War Hulk #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Power01WWH1.jpg

Even when weakened by a custom toxin, he slams Mister Gideon to the ground and shatters more windows for blocks around in World War Hulk: Gamma Corps #3:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...GammaCorps3.jpg

The shockwaves his blows produce have leveled entire landscapes. Here, he destroys what remains of the capital city on Sakaar in Incredible Hulk vol.2 #105:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...wave01v2105.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

As he ascends towards Worldbreaker levels, the shockwaves from even a single footstep are felt for hundreds of miles around, tossing helicopters in the air, and causing nearly irreparable damage to the bedrock of the Eastern Seaboard. From World War Hulk #5:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...kwave03WWH5.jpg

Even after he allowed the heroes to drain his gamma away, the damage he caused would have split Manhattan Island in half. From World War Hulk: Aftersmash #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Aftersmash1.jpg

This wasn't a one time feat. When he's pushed towards Worldbreaker levels again, the shockwaves produced are felt once again throughout the Eastern Seaboard mirroring his previous footstep. From Incredible Hulk #610:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ckwave05610.jpg

The consequences of the Worldbreaker's shockwaves are unequivocally continental in scale. Amadeus Cho reminds Red She-Hulk, "I know. I'm not worried about you... just the rest of the freaking continent." From Incredible Hulks #632:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ckwave08632.jpg

Dr. Strange reinforces Cho's concern, "... yesterday he came within seconds of triggering the San Andreas fault." And that was from hundreds of miles away in New Mexico. And, again, this is all when he holds back. From Incredible Hulks #633:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ckwave09633.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

So what happens when he finally meets an opponent who can match his physical strength and he stops holding back? The shockwaves produced from their collision annihilates an entire planet. From Incredible Hulks #634:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ckwave10634.jpg


THUNDERCLAPS

It should go without saying that World War Hulk's thunderclaps are nothing short of devastating. While holding back, a thunderclap stuns Namora, Angel and the Immortal Hercules in Incredible Hulk vol.2 #107:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...clap01v2107.jpg

Here he tosses back Beast, Kitty Pryde, Colossus and Emma Frost in diamond form. From World War Hulk: X-Men #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...02WWHX-Men2.jpg

With another thunderclap, Green Scar sweeps away Ghost Rider "[l]ike [he] was nothin'." From Ghost Rider vol.4 #13:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...stRiderv413.jpg

Despite the Red Hulk having forcibly absorbed some of World War Hulk's gamma energies, he is defeated by a final thunderclap in Hulk #24:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...lap04Hulk24.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...underclap05.jpg

World War Hulk tosses Fin Fang Foom backwards with such force that Umar's enchanted shields are shattered in Incredible Hulks #634:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...erclap07634.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

World War Hulk's also saved lives with his thunderclaps. Here he blows away enough sand to support a crumbling parking garage in Incredible Hulk #611:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...erclap06611.jpg

XIX. WORLD WAR HULK DURABILITY


World War Hulk was the strongest Hulk ever. He was also the most durable and could easily be described as practically invulnerable to harm, whether it involved physical force, energy projection, temperature extremes, piercing, chemical or mental attacks.


BLUNT FORCE

World War Hulk tanked tremendous amounts of physical force during his attack on Manhattan without missing a step. Here, he takes a flush shot to the face from She-Hulk in World War Hulk #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Blunt02WWH2.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

Later, Thing draws little more than a dismissive grunt with a haymaker:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/.../WWHBlunt03.jpg

Ghost Rider brings an entire building down on him and it fails to even slow him down in Ghost Rider vol.4 #13:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...stRiderv413.jpg

On a microscopic scale, the Irredeemable Ant-Man breaks his hand and finds out "he's solid steel on the inside, too." From Irredeemable Ant-Man #10:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...01Ant-Man10.jpg

It is always difficult quantifying just how powerful certain punches are. Nova Prime, however, delivers a shot here with an "impact force of 765,000 psf." Needless to say, World War Hulk was able to shake it off in Incredible Hulks #614:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...HBlunt10614.jpg

Rulk absorbs World War Hulk's own gamma radiation and delivers a vicious blow to him with spectacular results: a mushroom cloud and... an unharmed Hulk. From Hulk #24:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...unt08Hulk24.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/.../WWHBlunt09.jpg

Sentry revels in the fact that World War Hulk is the only one he could unleash his power on and strike without restraint. And despite being sent through buildings, World War Hulk has no problem with this. From World War Hulk #5:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Blunt05WWH5.jpg

What are the upper limits of World War Hulk's tolerance? We might never know. Here, Reed Richards warns that Skaar is "seconds from commanding the kinetic power of a hundred trillion tons of shifting lithosphere..." And that power is packed into a punch Skaar delivers straight to the gut of Worldbreaker Hulk. He isn't even close to being knocked out. From Incredible Hulk #611:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...HBlunt06611.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/.../WWHBlunt07.jpg

And what about the concussive force capable of destroying a planet with shockwaves? An unleashed Worldbreaker literally revels in it. That's right; a time-stop at the moment of impact reveals that he isn't even hurt. From Incredible Hulks #634:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...HBlunt11634.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...HBlunt12635.jpg

PIERCING

(please log in to view the image)

Wolverine discovers that his "skin's harder to cut" in World War Hulk: X-Men #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...01WWHX-Men2.jpg

Wendigo's claws are no sold by the Worldbreaker in Incredible Hulks #634:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ercing05634.jpg

A bullet fired at his eyeball doesn't stop him in World War Hulk #3:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...rcing02WWH3.jpg

Bulletproof? The Army doesn't even bother with regular bullets and artillery. They resort to adamantium ammo. At least a rain of adamantium shards renders him a mess when distracted. From Incredible Hulk vol.2 #109:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...cing03v2109.jpg

A barrage of "adamantium shrapnel propelled by Starktech fusion nukepunchers" within his ear canal manages to rupture his vestibular system. From Incredible Hulks #614:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ercing04614.jpg


EXTREME TEMPERATURES

A rain of napalm only reminds World War Hulk of Caiera's death. From World War Hulk #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ature01WWH1.jpg

His insides aren't even singed despite O'Grady's best efforts in Irredeemable Ant-Man #10:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...02Ant-Man10.jpg

A full-force nova blast from Human Torch that leaves him extinguished is no sold. From World War Hulk #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ature03WWH2.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...mperature04.jpg

Fin Fang Foom's fiery breath poses no obstacle to World War Hulk in Incredible Hulks #634:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...rature09634.jpg

An eruption of pure hellfire from Zarathos doesn't sear Green Scar. He just stands there in defiance. From Ghost Rider vol.4 #13:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ostRidev513.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...mperature06.jpg

Both Boreas and the Sun God Apollo fail to stop World War Hulk's climb of Mt. Olympus with their godly cold and heat in Incredible Hulks #621:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...rature07621.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...mperature08.jpg

And the death throes of a planet which incinerate Fin Fang Foom, Wendigo, Bi-Beast and Arm'Chedon can't even harm an unleashed Worldbreaker. From Incredible Hulks #635:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...rature10635.jpg

XIX. WORLD WAR HULK DURABILITY (cont'd)


ENERGY

(please log in to view the image)

World War Hulk was born in the very blast that incinerated Caiera of the Oldstrong and destroyed his capital. And it is arguable that the only pain he feels is emotional. From Incredible Hulk vol.2 #104-05:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ergy01v2104.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ergy02v2105.jpg

A nuclear blast set off by Deadpool makes World War Hulk angrier but not angry enough to kill him (Wade's goal) in Deadpool vol.5 #37:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...eadpoolv537.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...WWHEnergy13.jpg

Later, a mouth stuffed with C-4 and grenades doesn't even stun World War Hulk senseless... it actually stuns him back to his senses:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...WWHEnergy14.jpg

One nuke obviously wasn't enough to piss off World War Hulk enough... Deadpool thinks, "How about another?" Wilson's gettin closer, at least:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...WWHEnergy15.jpg

Cyclops' max power optic blasts don't serve him any better against the Green Scar than they have in the past in World War Hulk: X-Men #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...05WWHX-Men2.jpg

Storm's lightning strike combined with a full nova blast blows away all onlookers, and leaves World War Hulk wanting in World War Hulk #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...nergy06WWH2.jpg

A Skrull Black Bolt's whisper only throws Green Scar backwards. It doesn't stop him, from World War Hulk #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...nergy03WWH1.jpg

And to anybody doubting how the Skrull's power compared to his Inhuman counterpart, Namor reveals that the forces unleashed on the Moon in their battle caused "unprecedented gravitational aberrations." Iron Man reinforces this and describes how the imposter "knocked a divot of Moon rock the size of Rhode Island into space." From Incredible Hulk vol.2 #104 and World War Hulk #4:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ergy04v2107.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...nergy08WWH4.jpg

Hiro Kala unleashes the Old Power on his father and finds out even his power can't keep an enraged Green Scar away in Incredible Hulks #616:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Energy10616.jpg

The "power of a million exploding suns" is finally unleashed in a tornado of energy at the climax of World War Hulk. The Green Scar survives it in World War Hulk #5:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...nergy09WWH5.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

Here, Skyfather Zeus unleashes a godly torrent of energy and Green Scar manages to hold his ground. From Incredible Hulks #622:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Energy11622.jpg

Clearly, the power World War Hulk possesses is nearly peerless. Can he withstand his own power harnessed and thrown back at him? The answer is a resounding yes to a shocked Arm'Chedon in Incredible Hulks #632:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Energy16632.jpg

Needless to say, an Arm'Chedon blasting the back of his head is literally beneath the Worldbreaker's notice in Incredible Hulks #634:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Energy18634.jpg

And revisiting it for the last time, the explosive energies released by a planet's annihilation don't stop an unleashed Worldbreaker in Incredible Hulks #635:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Energy19635.jpg

XIX. WORLD WAR HULK DURABILITY (cont'd)


MENTAL

(please log in to view the image)

In the past, Hulk's rage proved a formidable obstacle to attempts at mental control or submission. And the Green Scar's righteous rage only made him more resistant. Professor Xavier recounts, "Im-impossible... the Hulk's mind has always been unique... difficult to control. But I've never encountered anything like this. The rage... like an elemental force. I can't overcome it." From World War Hulk: X-Men #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...01WWHX-Men1.jpg

Siryn's attempts at hypnotizing him with subsonics fail. Emma Frost tells her she shouldn't have bothered since Xavier and her "couldn't control his mind," from World War Hulk: X-Men #3:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...02WWHX-Men3.jpg

Dr. Strange attempts to penetrate World War Hulk's subconscious in World War Hulk #2. He is expelled by his rage:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ental03WWH2.jpg

His rage even thwarts benign telepathy. "I had our Esper unit try to read his mind. The Hulk's always been resistant to that... and at his current level of rage, it's like trying to pick up radio signals through heavy interference." From Iron Man vol.4 #20:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Ironmanv420.jpg

Trauma finds out his powers don't work on World War Hulk because he has no fear. From Avengers: The Initiative #5:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Initiative5.jpg

He remains immune to Xemnu's telepathic control, from Hulk #30:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...tal06Hulk30.jpg


DRAINING

(please log in to view the image)

World War Hulk's increased power was a result of him harnessing more gamma energy. And Darwin -- a mutant who acclimated to Hela's and the M'Kraan Crystal's power -- cannot drain his energy off in World War Hulk: X-Men #3:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...01WWHX-Men3.jpg

He walks right through gamma inhibitor cannons being fired on him in Iron Man vol.4 #20:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Ironmanv420.jpg

Rulk's completely absorbed the Savage Hulk's gamma radiation and reverted him to Banner. He fails to drain enough gamma radiation from World War Hulk to even knock him unconscious, from Hulk #24:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ing03Hulk24.jpg


CHEMICAL

S.H.I.E.L.D. agents unleash nerve gas on him and they only endanger themselves in Iron Man vol.4 #20:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Ironmanv420.jpg

Gamma-irradiated Thallium brings the Green Scar to his knees but is burned out by his rage. From Heroes for Hire vol.2 #13 and Incredible Hulk vol.2 #110:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...forHirev213.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ical03v2110.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...HChemical04.jpg

XX. WORLD WAR HULK SPEED


AGILITY

Would such a dramatic increase in power compromise World War Hulk's agility? No. Here, Green Scar is blown back by a Skrull's Black Bolt whisper. Before he knows it, World War Hulk is already on top of him, from World War Hulk #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ility01WWH1.jpg

The feral X-23 is swift enough... to be caught in his clutches in World War Hulk: X-Men #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...02WWHX-Men1.jpg

The vampire, Nighteyes, begins lecturing World War Hulk (possessed by Nul) on the importance of agility, "Such a strong hunter as you may underestimate the value of speed and--" She doesn't get to finish. From Fear Itself: Hulk Vs Dracula #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ulkDracula2.jpg


LEAPING

His leaping ability hasn't lessened either. With a leap, he speeds past Angel and Namora to intercept a bomb in Incredible Hulk vol.2 #109:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Leap02v2109.jpg

He punches Skaar from West Virginia to Maryland and with his leaps reaches him before he lands in Incredible Hulk #611:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...s/WWHLeap04.jpg

After flicking Deadpool from New Mexico to Arizona, World War Hulk is hot on his heels with his leaps in Deadpool vol.5 #37:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...eadpoolv537.jpg

Dracula's minions measure a "one point two mile vertical leap" by him possessed by Nul in Fear Itself: Hulk Vs Dracula #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ulkDracula1.jpg


XXI. WORLD WAR HULK POWERS


TRANSFORMATION

Few characters in comics grow more powerful when attacked. "But the madder Hulk gets, the stronger Hulk gets." And he's never been angrier than when his wife, his home and his unborn child were destroyed by the Illuminati's spaceship in Incredible Hulk vol.2 #105. Thus, World War Hulk was born. And he remained at these heights because he learned to harness his rage by mastering techniques taught by Hiroim in World War Hulk Prologue: Worldbreaker #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...tion01v2105.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...formation02.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...WHPrologue1.jpg

Eventually, World War Hulk was subdued by the Cathexis Ray draining his energies. When those energies were manipulated by the Intelligencia, Banner knew he eventually had to reabsorb them all. And so, the Worldbreaker returned in Incredible Hulk #610:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...mation05610.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...formation06.jpg

But the Worldbreaker wasn't a level that could only be accessed rarely. It turned out that the Worldbreaker emerging was a choice. And in Incredible Hulks #632, he revealed he could flip it on and off like a switch:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...mation07632.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...formation08.jpg


AMPING

(please log in to view the image)

Could World War Hulk get even angrier and further amp? Yes. And when he did, he would ascend to Worldbreaker levels. Instantly. From World War Hulk #5:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...mping02WWH5.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...WWHAmping03.jpg

And later in Incredible Hulks #634, it turned out that there was an even stronger level of Worldbreaker he had suppressed... one that literally lived up to the title, "Worldbreaker," in the most convincing manner:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...mation09634.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ckwave10634.jpg


HEALING FACTOR

Another reason why World War Hulk was so unbeatable was his advanced healing factor. Despite being subjected to Elixir's death touch, his healing factor would return in only minutes in World War Hulk: X-Men #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...01WWHX-Men1.jpg

Even having his limbs directly phased into (and merged with) the ground by Kitty Pryde, his healing factor permits him to pull them out and expel the phased matter in World War Hulk: X-Men #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...02WWHX-Men2.jpg

Zom Strange literally blew gaping holes through World War Hulk and he'd heal them in the space of panels, from World War Hulk #4:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...actor03WWH3.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ingFactor04.jpg

Red She-Hulk would hack Green Scar from behind and it only pissed him off, from Incredible Hulks #634:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Factor08634.jpg

In fact, the only enemy that dealt enough damage to overwhelm the healing factor outright was the Skyfather Zeus. Even then, he could still heal from being eviscerated day after day. From Incredible Hulks #622:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Factor05622.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ingFactor06.jpg
