to trust the character of the Hulk.
I don't think they understand the book's appeal.
The overwhelming proof of this is the way we are all going gah gah over him saying "Hulk smash".
The Hulk is wish fulfillment of the primal power in all of us.
The Hulk is indomitable.
Humanity - both his own and the outside world cannot stop him.
We want to be indomitable.
We want to overcome our own weakness and the limits society puts on us.
In any Hulk vs Abomination fight their is a pattern.
Blonsky is stronger and more skilled and wins early while verbally villifying Hulk.
Hulk's rage spikes and Blonsky faces true palpable fear as he begins losing.
Blonsky asks "Why?", "How?", "Where did he go wrong?"
The Hulk responds with "Where are your words now? You are weak! Hulk is strongest one there is!"
We all want to say that to our oppressors.
That is his appeal - The Hulk is our wish to batter down life's frustrations.
Toho often makes the same mistake with Godzilla.
They don't seem to understand that we are all rooting for Godzilla not the army.
