7 Things Spiderman And Hulk Actually Have In Common

You may think that The Hulk and Spiderman are totally different considering their abilities and behavior, but thinking that will make you absolutely wrong. Here is a list of similarities that both Hulk and Spiderman have.


In the 1960s, the Marvel comics were not doing that good, and then came in these two heroes with their first issues. Both Hulk and Spiderman comics were released for the first time in the 1960s and went on to be huge hits for the company.

Colour Confusions

Both Spiderman and Hulk were actually intended to be of different colors when they were written and released. If you see the first issues of both the comics, you’ll see that the Hulk was actually intended to be Grey and Spiderman was intended to be Red and Black instead of Red and Blue.

Triple Trouble

Both the characters have been played by exactly 3 different actors on the big screen. The Hulk has been played by Eric Bana, Edward Norton and currently Mark Ruffalo, whereas Spiderman has been played by Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield and currently Tom Holland.

Spider Smash

In a comic issue, Spiderman actually had his powers combined with the Hulk as he was zapped by a machine which had Bio-energy from the Hulk. Spiderman then transformed into Hulk and literally said Spider Smash. He then got rid of his Hulk powers, thankfully.

Uncontrollable Powers

The Hulk as we all know most of the times goes out of control when rage takes over or someone messes with his mind. Spiderman also went out of control when he was taken over by the Venom Symbiote and caused mayhem.

Lost Love Interests


Both Peter Parker and Bruce Banner were made to lose their first love interests – Gwen Stacy and Betty Ross in the comics in order to make them better Superheroes. Both of their lovers’ deaths took a toll on them and drove them on a better path.

Genius Intellects

Other than having powers, both Peter and Bruce possess high intellectual abilities. Bruce Banner was named the 4th most intelligent person on the planet and Peter Parker though being a kid, has always been portrayed the smartest of all in every interpretation.
