Once Bruce’smother intervened on a fight with his father and Brian murdered her. As a child Bruce, developed a split personality to help deal with his pain and rage. Bruce found ithard to develop friendships and often found himself receiving physical abuse of school bullies. Onesuch incident sparked him to build and plant a bomb in the basement of his school. Bruce wasexpelled, but the military took notice of his genius. Eventually, Bruce earned a doctorate in nuclear physics and started a career with them.Supervising the trial of an experimental gamma bomb in the U.S. Defense Department at a nuclear research facility in New Mexico, Bruce selflessly rushed to the rescue of an ignorant teenager whohad wandered onto the testing field.

He survived, but was irradiated by the deadly gamma energy. At first, Banner would transform into the brutish gray creature only at sunset, and revert to humanform at dawn. Eventually, his changes came to be triggered by the release of adrenaline when hewas intensely excited, no matter what time of day.
