On 25 April 1962, the first issue of The Incredible Hulk comics debuted on newsstands. The series, about Dr. Robert Bruce Banner who is accidentally exposed to gamma radiation, was written by Stan Lee and drawn by Jack Kirby.
In 1978, CBS premiered The Incredible Hulk television series, loosely based on the comic character and starring Bill Bixby as mild-mannered Dr. David Bruce Banner and Lou Ferrigno as his fierce alter ego.
A full length feature film called The Hulk was released in the Summer of 2003. Great Hulk videos include Death Of The Incredible Hulk, Return Of The Beast, and Origin Of The Hulk: The Power Of Bruce Banner.
The Hulk was again revived in 2008, this time with Edward Norton playing Dr. Bruce Banner (Hulk). Lou Ferrigno made his third appearance, this time serving as the Hulk’s voice, as he had done before in the 1996 animated series. The film also starred Liv Tyler, Tim Roth, William Hurt, Ty Burrell, and Robert Downey Jr., who makes a cameo appearance at the end of the film.
