“Hulk Not Happy You Call Hulk Dumb, Blog-Man!”

31 Nicknames Coined by the Hulk for Other Denizens of the Marvel Universe (and Beyond)

Let’s step into the Wayback Machine to seek out a more innocent time, a time when polyester was plentiful, the good guys were always good, Spider-Man’s writers didn’t get death threats over their editorial decisions, and a childlike Hulk conferred cute nicknames upon everyone he met.

Yes, the ’70s was a magical time for those comic fans who can remember it, and a near-incomprehensible era for those who can’t. For instance, how was it possible that a character defined by his uncontrollable rage, infantile intellect and desire to smash things at the slightest provocation was able to, say, repeatedly make his way into Manhattan and have rip-roaring team-ups with 1. Bug-Face, his term of endearment for our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man?

Just because, that’s how! And in that same spirit of anything goes, let’s take a look at some of the more memorable nicknames the Hulk bestowed upon colleagues and criminals over the years.

Your mission: match the nickname on the left to the hero or villain on the right. Some are pretty easy to figure out, some not so much… but every one of them is a delightful reminder of the way everyone’s favorite not-so-jolly green giant used to be.

Annnnnnd…. go!
