Anyone who knows anything about any facet of the realm of comic book mythos knows one fact beyond any and all dispute: the Hulk is one of the baddest characters on the block. Most readers may not even remember times when Hulk was defeated. As one of the most recognizable faces in comics, Hulk stands among a very select cast of characters that for all intents and purposes, simply cannot be offed. In fact, one can very easily get squashed like a grape just for daring to try.
However, readers will come across rare instances when a villain (or fellow hero) manages to take down the Hulk. It should be noted that the Hulk has had many incarnations over the years, even alternate reality versions of the character, all with different power, intelligence and mortality levels. So, while it hasn’t happened often, there have been several times Hulk was defeated.
