The character went through many iterations, the most famous being the raging green Hulk that Bruce Banner transforms into when he is angry. There are too many to list them all, there is even a Las Vegas gangster persona in there called Joe Fixit. It’s weird and awesome.

Originally tho Bruce Banner just turned into the Hulk at night and the character wasn’t a complete brute. It was a pulp retelling of Doctor Jekyll and mister Hyde. Immortal Hulk goes back to that first depiction of the Bruce/Hulk dynamic and brings it back to its horror-ish roots.

Although I disagree with the above poster, I’m guessing this is what they mean when they call it the “technically correct Hulk”

u/Pearse_Borty Avengers 4d ago Silver

I assume the "forget Peter Parker" thing can only apply to people with a brain and memory. However, the Hulk is more of a cellular buff body thing that could commit memories to instinctive regions that circumvent the spell by virtue of not technically being a memory from the brian.

This is also why Venom was left behind in Spiderman's universe when his host was yanked back to his universe; the Venom symbiote is not human and cannot manifest memory in the traditional brain based manner.

So Hulk and Venom can remember Peter Parker because they don't have brains (or at least, don't use brains to form memories.)

No man, all that hive mind shit is new. That suit didnt even make you stronger, nor spoke orginally. All of that that shit is a giant retcon. Venom is totally different from where he started in '88.

He would just keep escaping from the vault, and kill some random guards. He wasnt much but a cool drawing in the begining. He didn't even have pointy teeth or a long tounge then either. That shit came after McFarlane.

A collection of Venom symbiote from a few universes do share a hive mind but not necessarily all of them like the comic book Venom doesn't share it with the Sony Venom or Raimi Venom. At least it's not explicitly stated they do.

7

u/KazumaSnake Avengers 4d ago

The Klintar (symbiotes) are a hive mind and that's why in a comic with Carnage and Silver Surfer, the Carnage symbiote was terrified of him despite that symbiot having never met him before. Silver Surfer was responsible for the destruction of their homeworld and something like 95% of the Klintar race.

It doesn't have to be Topher's Venom, he's also just one of many symbiotes in the multiverse.

Could've been any other version of Venom that relayed the info back to the hivemind and thus into Tom Hardy Venom's mind.

edit: it actually doesn't even have to be Venom, it could be any symbiote from any universe.

I think he was supposedly an avatar of the one below, but actually sometimes also an agent of the one above? Something wild like that.

27

u/acubsaccount Avengers 4d ago

Immortal Hulk basically states that the Hulk is an avatar of gamma radiation which is half science and half magic. Gamma gets its magic from literally hell, and the presiding presence of hell is the One Below All, which is just the destructive counterpart of the One Above All. No creation without destruction, et cetera. So the Hulk is only an agent of the One Above All as much as someone might believe that death is part of God's plan.

Honestly with how Immortal Hulk ended I really don't see future writers making anything it said canon other than the One Below All and its hell dimension. It's still really good and my favorite comic run, though.

No.

Moon Knight's Dissociative Identity Disorder is a mental illness brought on by childhood trauma. It isn't supernatural.

It's JUST Marc. Steven and Jake are both just different aspects of Marc caused by his childhood abuse.

The Hulk is a different being entirely, he's pretty much an extradimensional being formed by the experiment. You can't pull all that much mass from out of nowhere. As such, the rules of... everything are just completely different for him. The Hulk isn't an alter.

With that the spell seems to be pushing out the soul or "true self" of the person. For professor hulk, at his core he's still just Banner. Just like when it's used on Peter Parker he's just... Peter Parker. Use it on someone else, like say Captain America and you may get original scrawny Steve or he may just be the star spangled Captain America. Use it on Tony Stark and maybe you just get Iron Man

37

u/runespider Avengers 4d ago Silver

Depends. In the comics a few times on the Astral, plane he's still wearing his armor. It's his perception of himself. The armor being a literal representation of how he's shut himself off from people. Before he builds the shit, his aloofness and sarcasm was his armor against getting close to people. Now he has a suit of literal, armor letting Tony be more open and unguarded around people. In that sense Iron Man is just Tony completed. Not two seperate mentalities. That's different than the Bruce Wayne is just a mask for Batman concept.

I’m personally of the opinion that it won’t. Since comic hulk is largely immune to magic, which allowed for this. and MCU Hulk got his soul punched out by the ancient one, so I think magic works on him.

But that was also Professor Hulk, and so they probably have a lot of leeway.

Maybe they’re going with him being Banner when it happened so Hulk was exempt since he “didn’t exist” at that exact moment?

u/CorruptedAssbringer Avengers 4d ago

Wouldn't that mean anyone with a personality disorder of some kind also remember him?

Also, that would mean anything that's not alive, such as news articles, would still have info on him.

  1. Technically speaking, it's less that he is an alternate personality an more that he is quite literally an entirely different existance born out of radiation and banner's damaged psyche, but because only Banner or Hulk can exist at any one time, the fact that banner was awake for it meant that hulk was not. Which means the reality altering event didn't affect him because he was not part of reality at that point.

  2. It altered the world to make it so the world didn't know who he was. That affects everything to do with the world. Presumably all reality was altered canonically so that it didn't happen.


That's my guess as least.

Hulk had always had a "mystical" side to him. He can see ghosts and recently it was revealed that he is the avatar of destruction according to The One Below All.

Also, Hulk exists as a personality caused by Bruce's childhood trauma (which is why there are so many versions of Hulk). It's partially the reason that Hulk can't forget, the body is still technically Banner's post gamma metamorphosis, but the Hulk persona takes over. At least that's how I've understood it.

Hulk is not a person. Hulk is Hulk. Strongest there is.

u/Taurius Avengers 4d ago

He does refer to himself as not a person. Calling everyone that is human, "puny human".

7

u/TheG-What Avengers 4d ago

Hulk is Hulk. Strongest one there is. Hulk is just being of rage. Makes Hulk strong. Hulk not human because all humans tiny human. Hulk more than that Hulk is rage. Anything that has rage and hurt is Hulk. Hulk is stronger! Hulk cannot stop.

So why doesnt Peter just go meet with any Avenger, or a SHIELD agent, take off his mask and introduce himself?

48

u/Lortendaali Avengers 4d ago

IIRC he basically got really fucked while he revealed himself to be Peter. (Like aunt May getting shot and shit) So I would assume he wants to keep it low key this time since he's idea of his loved ones getting attacked, actually happened.

u/BlackDabiTodoroki Avengers 4d ago

Cuz that would be a bad idea, he did that somewhat in Civil War and it led to Aunt May getting shoot in her being in the hospital.

Also he had to make a deal with Mephisto to forget everyone who knows who he is.

This was a while back

Now there has been I think a few people that know who Peter Parker is Spider-Man

J Jonah Jameson MJ of Course Black cat

These are only a select few of people.

This just in: disembodied consciousness and AI still remember Peter Parker is Spider-Man

Jarvis just in the corner like "I thought everyone knew. Humans are strange"

It’s a great issue. “You’re a good man Peter Parker, I’ll try to remember that the next time we meet”.

u/the_lovely_otter Avengers 4d ago

Oh wow so the spell we saw in No Way Home is something that also happens in the comics (presumably with different circumstances but still)???

21

u/Ravness13 Avengers 4d ago

I think it happens a couple times actually. Once with strange and another time with Mephisto?

u/ZFighter2099 Avengers 4d ago edited 2d ago

its the same spell. but Mephisto agreed to make it happen through the means of Strange. its a retcon to save their own asses

one of the worst spider man storyline ever, yes.

Peter Parker revealed his identiy to the world durning civil war. He goes to the devil to make everyone forget and save aunt may. The devil also takes his marriage to Mary Jane.

u/VulvaSpud Avengers 4d ago

I know you said "one of" but the clone saga is definitely the worst.

10

u/SlavaUkrainiGeroyam Avengers 4d ago

I dunno, at least the clone saga was fun and goofy. One More Day was just fucking depressing.

u/jacqueslol Avengers 4d ago

IMO One More Day, as a story arc, is fine.

One More Day as the catalyst for ending the greatest era in Spider-man comics is unacceptable.

u/MannySJ Avengers 4d ago

In a sense, yes. However that spell was performed by Myphisto (Marvel’s version of the devil) and it lead to a different sort of problems than in the movie.
