After a tragic accident Michael Buckley was bombarded with gamma radiation. Days later, he awoke to discover he had changed. Now when he is angered he transforms into an enormous, green monster people have come to call "The Hulk." He faked his own death and he’ll stay dead until he can learn to control the savage monster inside me. Wait a minute - that's the bio for Bruce Banner! No, Michael Buckley grew up in Akron, Ohio--- nowhere near any lab where gamma radiation research was going on. When he was a kid he was a roller boogie fanatic but that hardly makes him a monster...even if people were injured a few times when he would "shoot the duck." No, the closest thing he had to a monster inside oh him were his Incredible Hulk underoos! Does that count?
