Did Tony Stark have a hand in creating the Incredible Hulk? That could be just the case as the latest secret is revealed in Original Sin #3.1.
Speaking with USA Today, Marvel’s Editor in Chief Axel Alonso said, “Original Sin reveals a deeply buried secret shared by Tony Stark and Bruce Banner that dates back to the fateful gamma-bomb explosion that created the Hulk.”
As far as ‘news’ coming out of Original Sin, Marvel Comics’ latest crossover event, this is one monster-sized nugget. If Tony really did help to detonate that Gamma Bomb and thus create the Hulk from Bruce Banner, that changes a lot of history in the Marvel U in some very new ways. These two characters have a pretty deep history too, so everything that’s happened before takes on something of a new hue with this revelation.

Hulk and Iron Man editor Mark Paniccia said, “People have been digging the love/hate relationship between Marvel’s polar opposite geniuses both on screen and in the comics. We’re delving into some really compelling history with Tony and Bruce…some very cool dots will get connected and you’ll see one of the best superhero fights in history.”
Hulk vs Iron Man will run from Original Sin #3.1 through #3.4, and you can be sure that there’ll be plenty for fans of both characters to dig their teeth into before the arc comes to a close. And this is just one of the big stories to spin out of Original Sin, a book that will flat-out change how you think of many of the biggest characters in comics.
Check out Original Sin #3.1 when it releases in June from Mark Waid, Mark Bagley and, of course, Marvel Comics.
