‘Took the Hulk’s manhood, gave it to a woman’: Hulk Fans are Fighting Back She-Hulk, Brand MCU as ‘M-She-U’ for Nerfing Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner Beyond Recognition

The Hulk is counted as one of the most powerful and well-established characters in Marvel history. This character carried his whole journey and has accomplished the defeats of super-powered beings that are stronger than him. Other characters have not accomplished what the Hulk has if we talk about his powers and character development. Having said that, it seems like Marvel has greatly disrespected the Hulk and the Hulk’s fan base.

Now the mostly asked question all over the internet is “Why has the Hulk been nerfed so much in the MCU since the first Avengers movie when he could one-shot the Leviathan?” and now fans are not supporting this purposeful nerfing of The Hulk.

Why Is Hulk So Weak in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law

We can see that the green beast is noticeably weaker in She-Hulk: Attorney At Law, but why? Marvel Studios revealed more information regarding the character of Hulk since the end of the Infinity Saga and this includes a road trip with his cousin leading to her becoming a Hulk following a car mishap. The She-Hulk: Attorney At Law episode “A Normal Amount of Rage” shows us, Bruce Banner training the basics of being a Hulk.

During their fight scene, Hulk gets overpowered by his cousin later getting straight up railroaded by a Jeep and thrown into a boulder. Even during their training session, Marvel made She-Hulk noticeably more powerful than Bruce Banner even if she is new to this. And this particularly made fans mad, for making Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner look weak beyond recognition.

Some fans also pointed out the fact that Russo Brothers didn’t like him because they turned all the unnoticed characters into more powerful beings such as Thor, Captain Marvel including others. But the one character which stays behind the spotlight is Hulk.

It is sure that Hulk fans and even fans of Marvel in general are looking forward to the Hulk serving a good role instead of getting overpowered by other characters especially She-Hulk because she is still in her training phase.

Hulk’s Anger Is the Key Factor of His Strength

The Hulk’s full strength and power completely depend on his emotional state and mood so it is acceptable because of his nature. His defeat of the Leviathan in The Avengers was possible just because of how much anger he carried himself to do that. Right before the fight with the Leviathan, he even admitted to the team that his control of the Hulk depended on the fact that he had stopped trying to keep his anger in check. So technically he is not nerfed. If we look into the comics, the original Hulk’s powers always depended on how angry and out of control he was.

New episodes of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law are released on Disney+ every Thursday.
