Pappy Banner[src]


Bruce's human form

Like his Earth-616 counterpart, Banner began his days as a hero. No one knew for sure what caused his drastic change, some speculating that it was the extra radiation he absorbed while witnessing an atomic bomb blast over California.[1]

Banner eventually conquered California from his old nemesis, the Abomination, renaming it "Hulkland" and setting himself up as ruler. He and his cousin She-Hulk had many children, who in turn had children of their own. The family was referred to as the "Hulk Gang".[2]

One of Banner's debtors was the man formerly known as the Wolverine. When he came up short in his rent to Banner, Banner sent his children to demand the money. Logan negotiated for a grace period, accepting a job as Clint Barton's bodyguard on a delivery across the country in order to pay his debts. While Logan was away, however, Banner had his family killed.[3]

Logan snapped and set off to avenge his family. He began killing Banner's family one by one, before setting off a bomb that destroyed their encampment and killed most of them, before confronting Banner himself.[1]


Banner confessed that he had Logan's family killed because he was longing for a good fight like the "old days" and wanted 'his Wolverine' back. During the fight, Bruce transformed and ended up eating Logan whole, as he had become accustomed to eating his rivals after a fight over the years. Logan healed in Bruce's stomach, eventually cutting his way out and killing Banner in the process.[1]

Powers and Abilities


Seemingly those of the Bruce Banner of Earth-616, while he also was able to use the Hulk's superhuman strength and resilience while in human form, enough to battle Wolverine while still an old man and survive being stabbed and slashed by the latter's claws, to the point where his transformation allowed him to completely heal from the wounds.[1]


As he aged considerably, Banner's healing factor had weakened progressively, noticing how he ate Logan, and when Logan sliced open his stomach, Banner did not heal from the wounds and instead died. Banner's psyche also appeared to have been damaged by his continued exposure to radiation.[1]
