Exclusion of television series.[edit]

I'm sorry but trying to exclude the TV series from the lead because "it's not the same character" is beyond ridiculous. It's one of the most well known adaptations of the character and arguably what made him iconic.*Trekker (talk) 09:07, 28 October 2016 (UTC)

You're wrong! Media adaptions are supposed to stick to the source material. What's ridiculous is creating something else and putting another things name on it trying to pass it off like they're one and the same when they're not!.Zjec (talk) 02:14, 28 October 2016 (UTC)
I'm sorry. I didn't realize that you were a troll. I feel stupid now.*Trekker (talk) 09:18, 28 October 2016 (UTC)
I'm sorry. I didn't realize that you were a troll/spam artist, thank you so much for your showing me your true nature.Zjec (talk) 02:28, 28 October 2016 (UTC)
I know I shouldn't bother with it but I just want to point out that you've probably hurt your own case even more by using sock puppets. There really is nothing to gain by that kind of stuff.*Trekker (talk) 07:44, 2 November 2016 (UTC)

I have blocked the pair of you for violating the three revert rule (by my counts you've both breached 10RR in under an hour) and personal attacks. Stop insulting each other and try and reach a compromise. My personal preference is for this version as it is conciser and gives a sufficient summary for the casual reader; as it is, the lead is a little on the large side, even for an article with 44K of prose. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 10:24, 28 October 2016 (UTC)

Both of you were wrong to edit war and *Treker shouldn't have assumed bad faith by calling Zjec a "troll". That being said, *Treker was right to revert the initial edit. We don't remove material simply because you don't it's close enough to the source material. That's considered POV editing, unless you genuinely believed that the show and comic are unrelated, in which case there are reliable sources that contradict that. DarkKnight2149 16:20, 28 October 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, this is a pretty ridiculous argument. Of course the television series should be included. - adamstom97 (talk) 22:38, 28 October 2016 (UTC)
No it shouldn't! if it doesn't follow the source material, then it shouldn't be associated with the true version. It's supposed to be about Bruce Banner, the original and constant one everyone else is familiar with, not some cheap knock-off that didn't follow through with the original concept.Zjec (talk) 04:11, 30 October 2016 (UTC)
Again, read WP:NPOV. We aren't about to remove valid material simply because you resent the show for not completely sticking to the comic. Like it or not, the television series is an officially liscensed adaptation. DarkKnight2149 18:05, 30 October 2016 (UTC)
No if it doesn't follow the source material, it's not relevant. It's supposed to be about Bruce Banner, the original version and constant one people are familiar with, nothing more than that.Zjec (talk) 08:35, 31 October 2016 (UTC)
And, once again, we're going to need a better reason to remove it than "I don't like it because it's not like the source material." It is an officially liscensed adaptation, and a relatively famous one at that. DarkKnight2149 03:45, 1 November 2016 (UTC)
  • I have to agree with Ritchie333 that the lede could be shorter. That said, there otherwise appears to be a consensus that popular officially licensed adaptions should be mentioned, which I don't think necessarily has to conflict with the need for a shorter lede. The article on Lou Ferrigno likewise says that he's primarily known for playing the Hulk. Ian.thomson (talk) 04:07, 1 November 2016 (UTC)
Perhaps we can reword the lead to make it shorter, though I should point out that's not the reasoning that Zjec gave for the removal. That aside, I would be willing to shorten it myself, unless another user would wants to do it instead. DarkKnight2149 17:46, 1 November 2016 (UTC)
The length is fine, the article is too short on non-plot content, but the amount of lead content is suitable for something that yideally will one day be a Featured Article. Darkwarriorblake / SEXY ACTION TALK PAGE! 20:12, 1 November 2016 (UTC)
Bringing the article to FA length could also work; it's the proportions that are a bit skewed. Ian.thomson (talk) 04:45, 2 November 2016 (UTC)

Typo in Fictional Character Biography section[edit]

in the fictional character biography section there is a sentence that reads "At the close of the storyline, Doc Green discovered that he was beginning to disappear as the result of the Extremis serum losing wearing off." "losing wearing" is obviously a typo. (talk) 21:15, 21 December 2016 (UTC)

 Done.--TriiipleThreat (talk) 21:26, 21 December 2016 (UTC)

Requested move 14 April 2018[edit]

The following is a closed discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: no consensus to move the page as proposed at this time, per the discussion below. Dekimasuよ! 20:41, 20 April 2018 (UTC)

Hulk (comics)Hulk (character) – Per the discussion at WP:NCCDAB, comic characters should be titled using "(character)" instead of "(comic)". This is followed at other comic character articles such as Wolverine (character) and Poison Ivy (character). Natg 19 (talk) 00:49, 14 April 2018 (UTC)

  • Support per nom. The character has moved around outside of comics for quite some time now. Randy Kryn (talk) 12:59, 14 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose "character" is too vague to use as a disambiguation considering Hulk in other media. The comics history of the character should be made distinct from the others in some way. The characters seem to be growing well beyond their comic roots into mainstream media, especially the film series, and I feel like we need a better approach to laying these articles out. I'd not oppose move to Hulk (comics character) or Hulk (Marvel Comics character), but this all really needs to be hashed out. Look at Draft:Iron Man (Marvel Cinematic Universe) for the sort of other character articles we can expect might be coming. -- Netoholic @ 17:15, 14 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose - I agree with Netoholic on this one. --Rtkat3 (talk) 17:48, 14 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose, I didn't realize when I commented above that the page was only for the comics character and not for the entire history of the fictional entity. In that case 'comics' is fine as a descriptor. More is probably not needed, per brevity. Randy Kryn (talk) 19:50, 14 April 2018 (UTC)
  • comment - not ready to decide just yet, but it's worth noting The Incredible Hulk (comic book) exists, and that there was a 2008 comic book titled "Hulk". Argento Surfer (talk) 11:52, 17 April 2018 (UTC)
    From reading the comments above it’s seems the correct title maybe Hulk (comics character) to disambiguate it from both Hulk in other media and The Incredible Hulk (comic book).—TriiipleThreat (talk) 13:13, 17 April 2018 (UTC)
    Yeah, I think (comics character) is the way to go. Argento Surfer (talk) 00:32, 18 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Support as instructed in the guideline page. Note that Hulk may have been used in several media, but he was created as a comic book character and all the others are adaptations of the comics. Cambalachero (talk) 18:59, 19 April 2018 (UTC)
