Hulk is a natural disaster in cataclysmic fan art by Sebastián Píriz

The Hulk might be a hero when the chips are low, but Sebastián Píriz’s amazing new art reminds fans that he’s a force of elemental destruction as well.

The Pontoon is portrayed as the force of nature, he is truly in a recent play by the Argentinian comic artist Sebastián Píriz. Having worked on Catastrophe Inc., Heavy metal, and Free space, Píriz is no stranger to comics, but also creates awesome Marvel, DC fan art, Star wars and other beloved properties.

The final piece features the Hulk in a cloud of dust, crouching over debris in a washed-out style that mixes it with the destruction he just caused. Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in the 1962s The Incredible Hulk # 1, scientist Bruce Banner was irradiated with a gamma bomb of his own design and originally took on a monstrous form with the setting sun, although later comics did a lot to alter both his transformation and his frame. background. The Hulk has been everything from a pure-hearted hero to a Las Vegas bouncer to the apocalyptic Breaker of Worlds, finding renewed popularity thanks to the portrayal of Mark Ruffalo in the MCU.

One of the things that sets the Hulk apart as a hero is the chaos and destruction he causes, whether on purpose or by accident. Many stories have explored the idea that for ordinary people, the Hulk is not seen as a hero or even a person, but a natural disaster sweeping across the land, only to erupt and wreak havoc worthy of a hurricane. or an earthquake at unpredictable times. intervals. It’s an idea that brings the Hulk artwork to life Sebastián Píriz shared on social networks, visible below:

With the Hulk’s face in shadow and to one side, only indicated by the ominous glow of his eyes, the former Avenger looks truly insidious. But it’s the sultry, radioactive greens and browns that make little distinction between the Hulk and the damage around him that communicate the feeling of witnessing not a hero saving the world, but an unknowable threat that comes. to land like a bomb, eradicating anything that might have filled it. the frame a few moments earlier.

Some stories have attempted to portray the Hulk’s damage in a favorable light, suggesting that Bruce Banner’s genius is preventing the jade giant from taking life during his rampages, and that Damage Control (a Marvel Universe construction company made up of superhuman) has the resources to effectively restore whatever it destroys. But other accounts have taken the Hulk’s destructive potential more seriously. Ultimate – by Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch – takes place in an alternate reality where the Hulk is a cannibalistic beast who tears New York to pieces and literally tries to eat the heroes who try to stop him. Most recently, Al Ewing and Joe Bennett’s Immortal hulk associated The Hulk with Jackie McGee, a reporter whose home and family were destroyed during one of the Hulk Battles, which the comic also says comes with emergency government warnings in the manner of a violent meteorological event.

Píriz’s description leans towards this second reading, and the lack of context – the lack of a story to justify the destruction – makes it easy to see how monstrous the Hulk would seem to anyone who doesn’t have decades of comics telling them that he’s a good boy. Sebastián Pírizthe representation of Pontoon is an epic look at a character much more familiar with darkness than most other comic book heroes.
