The Best of The Week

When the Hulk was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1962, the character was as far as possible from the stereotypical lantern-jawed titan of justice. Stan Lee was inspired by a number of characters when creating him, including Frankenstein's Monster and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

a bowl of white bean soup with cornbread

wrinkled as a tobacco leaf

we stumbled out of the clubs at three

the sky was black and the birds were asleep

and we went to Jack’s for patty melts

we were so young

he called us his babies
