To most fans of Marvel Comics, the name of The Hulk just brings images of violent smashing and absolute destruction of at least two blocks worth of infrastructure in a matter of seconds, which is exactly the accurate description of the character. When he was first introduced in the MCU, Dr. Bruce Banner was a meek and timid man with an IQ rivaling that of Einstien himself, until you make him mad, in which case, you got to deal with the giant green monster that he turns into.

But with the events leading to Avengers: Endgame, we were given a shock that practically never seemed t be a possibility. In the film, we were introduced to a version of the Hulk that looked just like the raging beast that everyone is familiar with, but his actions and his demeanor resembled Dr. Banner who we were also familiar. This radical and out-of-the-blue surprise was greeted with some very divided opinions amongst the fandom.

The introduction of the Smart Hulk was so controversial that it literally made the fandom split into two teams For and Against this major overhaul of the character in the MCU. This version of the character was both interesting and baffling as this was the first time we saw how Bruce Banner would look in control of the beast, but baffling because this was the first time we saw how the Hulk would look like if he became relatively docile. This was scary in its own right.

Joe Rogan doesn’t seem to like the character all that much either. In an event with Alonzo Bodden, the creator of The Joe Rogan Experience expressed his disapproval of the change in the characteristics of one of the strongest Avengers. He jokes about how he thinks why they did this because the higher-ups just wanted to see more of Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner than his alter-ego. He also states that he likes the divide between the brains and the brawn of the character, which made him so likable in the first place to everyone.

This opinion of Rogan is backed by several fans of the MCU, claiming that the whole “Smart Hulk” thing was a terrible idea and that they should bring the raging behemoth back into the MCU.

We don’t know for certain just yet, but what we do know is the fact that the adventures of the Smart Hulk have only just begun. From becoming the mentor to his cousin Jennifer Walters in She-Hulk: Attorney At Law in the ways of smashing with intellect and not just brute force, we have seen how the new version is depicted as the subtle good fellow. But during the season finale, we also came to realize that he was by no means a weaker version of the Hulk. We saw him go against Abomination, giving him a tough battle, which confirms that he just needs to be pushed off the edge a little to bring the carnage back.
