Deep Questions Not Faced by Previous Generations of Fathers “Daddy, how did the Hulk get hulky?” Do I tell the story as it is related by the M (Marvel) source (scientist rescuing punk kid on Bomb Test range gets full dose of radiation), or the the cinematic redactor’s version featuring weird Frankensteinian intergenerational experiments?
