The Incredible Hulk (comic book)

The Incredible Hulk is an ongoing comic book series featuring the Marvel Comics superhero the Hulk and his alter ego Dr. Bruce Banner. First published in May 1962, the series ran for six issues before it was cancelled in March 1963, the Hulk character began appearing in Tales to Astonish. With issue #102, Tales to Astonish was renamed to The Incredible Hulk in April 1968, becoming its second volume; the series continued to run until issue #474 in March 1999 when it was replaced with the series Hulk which ran until February 2000 and was retitled to The Incredible Hulk's third volume, running until March 2007 when it became The Incredible Hercules with a new title character. The Incredible Hulk returned in September 2009 beginning at issue #600, which became The Incredible Hulks in November 2010 and focused on the Hulk and the modern incarnation of his expanded family; the series returned to The Incredible Hulk in December 2011 and ran until January 2013, when it was replaced with The Indestructible Hulk as part of Marvel's Marvel NOW! relaunch.

The original series was canceled with issue #6. Lee had written each story, with Jack Kirby penciling the first five issues and Steve Ditko penciling and inking the sixth. A year and a half after the series was canceled, the Hulk became one of two features in Tales to Astonish, beginning in issue #60; this new Hulk feature was scripted by writer-editor Lee and illustrated by the team of penciller Steve Ditko and inker George Roussos. Other artists in this run included Jack Kirby from #68–87, doing full pencils or, more layouts for other artists; the Tales to Astonish run introduced the supervillains the Leader, who would become the Hulk's nemesis, the Abomination, another gamma-irradiated being. Comics artist Marie Severin finished out the Hulk's run in Tales to Astonish. Beginning with issue #102 the book was retitled The Incredible Hulk vol. 2, ran until 1999, when Marvel canceled the series and restarted the title with the shorter-titled Hulk #1. The Incredible Hulk vol. 2 was published through the 1970s.

At times, the writers included Archie Goodwin, Chris Claremont, Tony Isabella. Len Wein wrote the series from 1974 through 1978. Nearly all of the 1970s issues were drawn by either Herb Trimpe, the regular artist for seven years, or Sal Buscema, the regular artist for ten years, starting with issue #194. Issues #180–181 introduced the character Wolverine, who would go on to become one of Marvel Comics' most popular; the original art for the comic book page that introduced Wolverine sold for $657,250 in May 2014. Key supporting characters included Jim Wilson and Jarella, both of whom would make few appearances outside of this decade. In 1977, Marvel launched The Rampaging Hulk, a black-and-white comics magazine; this was conceived as a flashback series, set between the end of his original, short-lived solo title and the beginning of his feature in Tales to Astonish. After nine issues, the magazine was retitled The Hulk! and printed in color. A nine-part "continuity insert" that in many ways contradicted the original comics stories was retconned as a movie made by an alien movie producer, Bereet who portrayed her people as warmonger shape-changers.

Following Roger Stern, Bill Mantlo took over the writing with issue #245. Among the adversaries Mantlo created for the series were the Soviet Super-Soldiers. Mantlo's "Crossroads of Eternity" stories, which ran through issues #300–313, explored the idea that Banner had suffered child abuse; the Incredible Hulk writers Peter David and Greg Pak called these stories an influence on their approaches to the series. After five years, Mantlo left the title to write Alpha Flight, while Alpha Flight writer John Byrne took over the series and left it after six issues, claiming, "I took on the Hulk after a discussion with editor-in-chief Jim Shooter, in which I mentioned some of the things I would like to do with that character, given the chance, he told me to do whatever was necessary to get on the book, he liked my ideas so much. I did, once installed he changed his mind—'You can't do this!' Six issues was as much as I could take." Byrne's final issue featured the wedding of Betty Ross. Byrne had done a seventh issue, consisting of one-panel pages.

It was published in Marvel Fanfare #29. Al Milgrom succeeded Byrne before new regular writer Peter David took over with issue #331, the start of an 11-year tenure, he returned to the Stern and Mantlo abuse storyline, expanding the damage caused, depicting Banner as suffering dissociative identity disorder. In issue #377 he merged Banner, the green Hulk, the grey Hulk into a single being with the unified personality and powers of all three. David claimed he had been planning this from the beginning of his tenure on the series, had held off so that he could make the readers have an emotional attachment to the grey Hulk. David worked with numerous artists over his run on the series, including Dale Keown, Todd McFarlane, Sam Kieth, Gary Frank, Liam Sharp, Terry Dodson, Mike Deodato, George Pérez, Adam Kubert. In 1998, David followed editor Bobbie Chase's suggestion to kill Betty Ross. In the introduction to the Hulk trade paperback Beauty and the Behemoth, David said that his wife had left him, providing inspiration for the storyline.

Marvel executives used Ross' death as an opportunity to push the idea of bringing back t
