nsfw i guess. kris and i were talking about how to do the hulk and make it not dumb!! it’s my suspicion that stories about rageful transformations are psychologically better suited to female characters (hoo boy what a loaded sentence that is… oh well) and i think it would be cool if dr. banner was a woman who still transformed into this giant raging hideous unstoppable beast. not she-hulk, just hulk. i think it might be a little more jarring and shocking and less silly if you did it like that.

This actually reminds me of some of the feminist analysis of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde I’ve encountered, in which it is theorized that Mr Hyde’s physical appearance, which never receives a precise description in Stevenson’s book, was that of a monstrous woman. Not exactly what you’re describing, but reminiscent.
