The Hulk is a superhero published by Marvel comics. First appearing in The Incredible Hulk #1 (May 1962), the character is a human that becomes a large, unstoppable behemoth upon suffering extreme amounts of stress or anger. The Hulk is regarded as one of the most powerful characters in comic books and one of the most popular superheroes in Marvel's catalogue. Available in the Superheroes Unlimited mod since version 1.3, the Hulk's body can be obtained in either the Gamma Containment Unit or the Suit Assembly Unit. While wearing it, the player will granted his powers and abilities.
There have been a number of people whom have been given the abilities of the "Incredible Hulk", but the longest running and most popular iteration is scientist Dr. Bruce Banner. Specializing in Gamma Radiation, he was commissioned by the government to create a new bomb that used it. During testing, Banner saw a bystander wonder onto the test site and attempted to rescue them before detonation. Unable to escape in time, Banner threw himself between the civilian and the bomb to protect them from the Gamma rays.
Despite the odds, Bruce survived and was seemingly unharmed by the Gamma Rays. However, during an argument, he transformed into a large green creature with incredible strength and limited intelligence. Escaping the premises and attacking the military, the creature was chased through the desert before reverting back to Banner. Knowing that he was the creature responsible, Banner went on the run, chased by General Thaddeus Ross and the military. However, when under stress or anger, he would transform into the creature, who was nicknamed by bystanders as "the Hulk".
During his time on the run, Banner would attempt to find ways of controlling or suppressing his transformations into the Hulk, attempting various methods. Eventually, he decided to use it to fight threats that one could not handle alone, ranging from alien invasions to other "Hulks". The Hulk would also become focus or enemy of various others, including the mentally powerful Leader, spy turned gamma monster Abomination, incontrollable beast Wendigo, and the material replicating Absorbing Man. The creature could also be used by some villains to achieve various ends, due to his lack of intelligence. However, Banner and Hulk were also co-founders of various teams, including the Avengers and the Defenders.
In the Mod
Hulk was first added into the Superheroes Unlimited in version 1.3.
4.0 - 4.3.12
In 4.0 to 4.3.12, Hulk's suit can be crafted in the Gamma Containment Unit and worn by the player. As the Hulk, players will be given Speed 6 (8 whilst sprinting), Acrobatics 5, Regeneration 11 (this increases to 12 at 10 hp and 13 at 5 hp), and immunities to Fall Damage and Poison. Hulk also has super Strength, which increases the more "angry" he gets. There is a meter that fills up on the top left hand corner of the player's screen, which increases the more the player fights or attacks. At Level 1 (the default/starting level of anger), Hulk will have strength 18, though this will increase to 19 at Level 2, 20 at Level 3 and 22 at Level 4 (the highest level).
Hulk will also be able to perform his signature "Smash" move (the Suit Ability 2 key). He can also perform long leaps (Suit Ability 1 Key) and the Jump button at the same time. Additionally, Hulk will perform a "Hulk Smash" if the player presses the aforementioned keys and the Shift Key at the same time. If the player has the RenderPlayerAPI mod installed, Hulk will appear taller than before.
When crafting Hulk in versions 4.0 to 4.3.12, you will need:
- Emerald Armor (all four piecies)
- 30 Blocks of Gamma Radiation
- Potion of Strength 2
- Potion of Swiftness 2
Hulk is also available in the abandoned 5.0. His suit can be crafted in the Suit Assembly Unit and worn by the player. Doing so will give them 40 health points, strength 26 (which will increase to 30, depending on how angry he is), speed 3 (10 whilst sprinting), jump boost 6, regeneration 4 (6 when under severe damage) and knockback. Hulk can also leap great distances (Suit Ability 1 Key and Space), perform his iconic "Hulk Smash" (Suit Ability 2 Key), dash (Suit Ability 3 Key), "thunder clap" (Suit Ability 4 Key) and ground pound (Suit Ability 5 Key). He is also immune to fall damage, poison and radiation poisoning.
To craft the Hulk in version 5.0, you will need:
1.0 - 6.15
Hulk returned during the merge to the Legends Mod. Like 5.0, his costume can be accessed through the Suit Assembly Unit and costs 64,500 tokens. Whilst wearing the Hulk costume, the player will be granted Health 20, Strength 25, Speed 5 whilst sprinting, Jump Boost 5 and Fortitude 8. In addition, they will become Bulletproof, be granted Water Breathing 10 and Vacuum Adaptation, and be immune to Poison, Wither, Radiation and Fall Damage. Hulk is also given Brute 2 and his Strength will increase to a maximum of 28 the more angry he gets.
In addition to these, Hulk's body will allow the player to perform a scattershot (Ability 1 Key), a Hulk Smash (Ability 2 Key), a Thunder Clap (Ability 3 Key), a Seismic Toss (Ability 4 Key) and a Ground Pound (Ability 5 Key). They will also be able to transform between the Hulk form and their player body (Equip Key) and leap great distances (Utility Key). As a special ability, Hulk will preform a World Breaker, which will increase his strength to astonishing levels and harm players within the vicinity (Special Key).
