Incredible: green, mean Hulk is Catholic
He's big, he's green and he's sometimes mean. The Incredible Hulk is also probably a Roman Catholic, according to the Vatican's daily newspaper 'L'Osservatore Romano'.
It devoted a full page looking at the Catholic identity of popular comic-book superheroes.
Headlined 'Was the Hulk really a Catholic?', the article was accompanied by two scenes from popular comics – Batman showing his alter-ego Bruce Wayne as a boy saying his prayers, and the Hulk depicted with rosary beads in his hands.
The article read: "Bruce Banner, the incredible green man, married his beloved Betty Ross in a church and a Catholic priest presided at the ceremony." (© Daily Telegraph, London)
