The landmark story redefined Bruce Banner and his big green alter ego, with the origin story revealing Bruce had been the victim of abuse at the hands of his father, who dubs him a monster as a young child. The tragic tale suggests that the Hulk’s rage actually has its roots in Bruce’s childhood rather than simply being the product of gamma radiation.
