Bruce Banner was a child prodigy who grew under his abusive father and his loving mother. When his father, Brian Banner murdered his mother, Rebecca Banner, Brian was put in a mental health institution. From then on, Bruce was filled with rage and he was raised by his father’s sister, Susan Banner.1
After gaining his PhD from in nuclear physics at Caltech, Bruce sought philanthropic science work though he could not receive funding for his projects. He then worked on nuclear research with the United States Defense Department at Desert Base, New Mexico. There, Bruce met with General Thaddeus Ross and his daughter Betty. Bruce and Betty fell in love.
Bruce worked on the construction of the Gamma Bomb or “G-bomb”, a bomb with high gamma radiation output.2
Banner was present at the first test of the G-bomb. Realizing that a civilian had crossed security and entered the restricted area, Gamma asked his collaborator Igor Starsky to delay. Being a secret Soviet agent, Igor did nothing. Bruce, sent the teenager named Rick Jones, into a protective trench.
Before Bruce could get into safety, the bomb detonated. Bruce was irradiated with large amounts of gamma radiation. Due to a genetic factor, Bruce Banner was not killed; instead, he was transformed into the green humanoid monster who General Ross called “the Hulk.”2
At first Bruce changed into Hulk at sunset and reverted at dawn. Then, his transformations became triggered by vast discharges of adrenaline when he was excited or angry at any times of the day.2
