List Rules Vote up your favorite rendition of The Hulk, just don't make him angry.

The Incredible Hulk, though very popular, can't seem to hold onto a comic title or solo movie for very long. He's had titles restarted, actors recast, and has even been all sorts of different colors and temperaments. Nevertheless, he has one of the biggest cult followings in all of comics.

As such, there are many different variations on the character and dozens of formats the character has been utilized in. Be it video games, films, animated series, or alternate versions of the man himself in comic books, The Hulk is in SO many forms of pop culture, in one way or another.

We've decided to compile some of our favorites here. Do you like the Hulk in his own solo adventures or as part of a team? Do you like the classic Hulk or the newer, grayer Ultimate Hulk? Do you like Bruce Banner/The Incredible Hulk or Thunderbolt Ross/The Red Hulk? Are you an Edward Norton as Bruce Banner fan or is Mark Ruffalo your Hulk?

Here's the chance to see where it all lines up. What are the greatest interpretations of Hulk ever? Vote up your favorites!
