Hulk Smash? Most definitely.

My man Rion did a great post the other day on his blog about the new Incredible Hulk and how, in the movie, Banner can't get laid because whenever he gets (sexually) excited he turns green and violent. It's funny because I purposefully didn't read Rion's post before I saw the movie because I didn't want to be influenced by his reading, but this movie is definitely a freak fest.

'Sup, girl?

To Rion's assertion that Betty should just have sex with Hulk, just so he'll chill the funk out, I pose the following query: Who's to say that Hulk didn't in fact "smash?" The movie is pretty vague about what happened after Betty called him in out of the rain and they both laid down. Next thing you know, it's morning time and she's laying on top of Banner. Who knows what happened? Banner sure don't. One of the things I liked about the movie was the way it showed both the pleasurable, and horrifying, side effects of power.

The Jesus Juice Cure!

Banner is shown both loving and fearing the awesome power he wields. Betty seems similarly captivated. Is it just me or doesn't Betty look awfully disappointed when Banner says he's trying to destroy his bigger, greener alter-ego? Hulk would definitely get it on with Betty, but Banner always seems to get in the way, so the only person Hulk can express his emotions to physically is a big, sweaty, male, beast. Poor hulk.

Damn, Michael Chertoff was in the movie!

but what about the fact that betty is the one trying to bring out hulk's inner-bruce?

Well, Betty knows she can't take Hulk to see her parents, so she needs Bruce to make the whole thing legit.

interesting theory. i maintain that the hulk didn't smash as Betty could still walk the next morning.
