In one of the most exciting scenes in the film, Marvel fans finally got what they had been waiting for since the release of the Avengers trailer: A mad, destructive battle between an anger crazed Hulk, and Tony Stark clad in the Hulkbuster armor. I am not gonna give a blow by blow summary of the battle, but it is safe to say that not much of Johannesburg was left intact after the two tussled.
Ultimately, the battle goes to Iron Man, who sucker punches the Hulk... after knocking him down a under-construction skyscraper. However, this end to the battle has bothered some MARVEL fans, for many reasons. The Hulk's power levels are insane (as most of us know by now), as his strength increases with his anger, and every hit he gets serves to make him angrier. His power realistically has no limits, whereas the Hulkbuster's strength and damage resistance does.
Now, in the movie, the Hulkbuster armor, or V.E.R.O.N.I.C.A. was built by Tony as well as Bruce Banner himself as a contingency plan to deal with the Hulk if he ever went rogue. In the comics however, the Hulkbuster armor was always unsuccessful in defeating the Hulk.
Each encounter with the Hulk left a Hulkbuster armor destroyed, and in the World War Hulk storyline, all of Stark Tower is destroyed due the outcome of the fight.
The Hulkbuster has been known to give Hulk a run for his money in many cases, but could it actually beat the Hulk? Comment and vote your view on the situation below.
