Bruce Banner - MBTI in Fiction

Bruce Banner

Requested by mouseonmydoorframe

Personality Type: INTP

Dominate Function: Introverted Thinking

Bruce Banner tends to keep to himself, even before his accident.  He is exceptionally introspective, and uses his time alone to formulate an internal construct of rules and paradigms to organize his ideas.  He engineers things in his head, looking for the best and most efficient course of action before presenting as though it is a concrete fact.   When he presents his procedure for hunting down the tesseract to fury, he had already engineered and simulated the plan in his head.  Unlike Tony, who starts poking all the buttons at the SHEILD base looking for answers, Bruce harbors his reservations about SHEILD’s trustworthiness, building his own internal theories until they are pried out of him.

Auxiliary Function: Extroverted Intuition

Banner has the ability to see a lot of possibilities.  He looks for different solutions, and looks at the big picture.  He looks to the outside world for inspiration and the ability to come up with new ideas.  He is always worried about what kind of destruction he might cause, seeing an unlimited potential, and working his way from one anxious thought to another.  Bruce is also a wry observer, making witty remarks about what is going on around him.  He tries to avoid drawing conclusions and making distinct choices, preferring to leave that to the other members of the Avengers, and instead taking a ‘live and let live’ stance.

Tertiary Function: Introverted Sensing

Bruce gets his data about the world from his memory and experience.  His memories of leaving destruction in his wake as the Hulk haunt him, and make him even more fearful of “the other guy”.  Instead of enjoying or even accepting the times when he is in full control, he lives under the shadow of the Hulk.  Bruce also describes being the Hulk, who does act completely in the moment as “a nerve.  Completely exposed."  It suggests that Bruce has a difficult time being present and in the moment, unable to use memories to absorb the world through internal filters.

Inferior Function: Extroverted Feeling

This is Bruce’s least developed function, but an important one.  He has a tendency to want to be polite and appropriate, although his objective nature and biting wit don’t always line up with these instincts.  Bruce tries to avoid conflict, not just to hide from the Hulk, but he doesn’t want to offend or upset people and knowing well that his internal anger could end an argument badly.   The Hulk becomes a manifestation of his internal anger, and as Bruce develops his extroverted feeling side he learns to control 'the other guy’.  Bruce does want to try and help people, but out of wanting to be normal, or at least make up for his above-average destruction with above-average heroism.  Banner even tried to kill himself if it would take the Hulk with him, just so he would not accidentally disrupt the lives of innocent people again.

Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw

It was Bruce’s insatiable curiosity that led him to get dosed with Gamma radiation and become the Hulk in the first place.  Of course, Bruce is always trying to do best by people, he tends not to act on principals, and does not have much taste for other people’s staunch principals either.  Although he feels like he has a duty to atone for his destruction, Bruce is a curious scientist at heart.  He enjoys making discoveries, and searching for the truth, which is why he helps Tony dig up dirt on SHIELD.   Banner even scares Natasha, just as an experiment to find out the truth behind her agenda.  With a strong conscious, but an even stronger curiosity, Banner would be sorted into Ravenclaw.

The history of Hulk's degradation in the Marvel Cinematic Universe - Movies and series on DTF five years.

I would like to dwell on this topic in the form of a longread and try to figure out why the superhero franchise completely forgot who this character is.


Let's go from afar.

One of Marvel's longest-running heroes, the Hulk was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby back in 1962, immediately gaining worldwide fame. His official debut in the MCU took place in 2008, and to this day the green giant continues to visit the screen, being part of the original Avengers, who survived after the end of of the Infinity Saga . Not a single character, not even the almighty Thor, has seen so many changes in his lifetime as Bruce Banner, a talented scientist who received monstrous powers due to participation in a project that was associated with gamma radiation. nine0008

Recently, the figure of the Hulk has significantly receded into the background before other characters, and has also taken on a much more comical character. This is partly because The Incredible Hulk was the biggest disappointment for Marvel, forcing the studio to drastically change the direction of the character - at a production cost of $ 150 million, worldwide rentals stopped at around 264 million, and cooperation with the leading actor Edward Norton has reached a dead end. Bruce Banner Norton was replaced by Mark Ruffalo and the whole dynamic of the Hulk changed, a lot of the dark stuff faded away. By the end of the first decade of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Bruce had learned to completely control the Hulk, thereby combining his two personalities into one. This idea is taken straight from the comics, where a similar plot move led to the birth of Professor Hulk, but, unfortunately, within the framework of a multi-year franchise, it turned out to be not as effective as in the same source. nine0008

Marvel did not so much fall into the need to turn all stories into comedies, but forgot what the essence of many characters is.


Hulk featured in the third Thor , Avengers: Endgame and the most recent She-Hulk , as silly as it sounds, looks more like a CGI version of the real Mark Ruffalo than a powerful monster. Every superhero has a core concept, a central idea from which he must never stray too far—or perhaps only for a short time. For Spider-Man, these are the motives of strength and responsibility, for the Fantastic Four, family and the exploration of the impossible, and for the Hulk, suppressed rage that robs Bruce of a chance for a peaceful life. nine0115 "The Avengers" in 2012, where the Hulk was already played by Mark Ruffalo, did a great job of pitching this idea, but then everything went downhill.

Director Thor: Ragnarok Taika Waititi gave a controversial interview to The Empire Film Podcast in 2018 in which he complained about the Marvel superheroes he works with:

When you look at comic book characters, you don't see anything in common with them. Especially with a rich kid, a space viking, or that bipolar, vicious green monster. nine0008

Taika Waititi about the Hulk character.

A highly noteworthy statement demonstrating a failure to understand why the Hulk has such enduring appeal in superhero culture. In essence, the Hulk symbolizes the struggle with suppressed anger - the more angry the Hulk, the stronger he becomes. From that, many authors are in a stupor. How to manage such a strong hero and find his place in the plot. The Russo brothers, for example, deliberately took the Hulk out of the plot thanks to the battle with Thanos, although in reality Banner could easily compete with the mad titan, and not lose to him in a minute of time. nine0008

In turn, Edward Norton, in an interview with the New York Times, stated that he planned to give the character an exciting story, he was interested in a dark and serious continuation of "The Incredible Hulk" . According to Norton, he was inspired by Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, so he wanted to do something similar with the Bruce Banner franchise, but it didn't work out:

I loved the Hulk comics, they seemed very mythical to me. And I liked the way that Christopher Nolan went with Batman - long, dark and serious. If there is a character who is close to all this, then, from my point of view, this is the Hulk. nine0008

His story is literally the myth of Prometheus. This is a real tragedy. I proposed to them [Marvel Studios] a plan for two films - an origin story and the concept of the Hulk as a lucid dreamer, someone who has everything under control. They said, "That's exactly what we need!" But later it turned out that they needed something else.

Edward Norton on the cancellation of The Incredible Hulk sequel.

Valuable material remains behind the scenes.


There is reason to believe that such a transformation of the hero symbolizes his moral growth, but if we accept such a thought, then the fact remains that the most important changes in the image of Banner occurred behind the scenes. According to Ruffalo, the triquel Thor and the final Avengers should be seen as a loose Hulk trilogy in which Bruce tries to find an elusive inner harmony. After becoming the Smart Hulk, again out of our sight, Bruce jumps from this form to human. In a post-credits scene "Shan-Chi" Banner has turned back into a normal human by building a special And already in She-Hulk this device fails and returns to the screens of the Professor. As if the scriptwriters are playing hot potato and can't come to their senses.

We all remember the story of how Edward Norton interfered with the writing of the script of his solo film, fiercely argued with the director of the film Louis Leterrier and producer Kevin Feige, but we have to admit one thing - the actor tried his best to give the character a truly fascinating adaptation on big screens. The fourteen-year-old film didn't have a strong script, but the peppy shooting, all-consuming atmosphere, and perfect performance of the Hulk himself worked well:

From their side [Marvel Studios] it was brand protection or something like that. Ultimately, they were not interested in dark, dark and long films. But it doesn't matter anymore. We had some good talks about future films and how long it would take, but I wasn't going to do it.

Edward Norton on folded plans for the development of the Hulk.

In comics, many people associate Banner with the image of a loser who is trying to find his place in the world, wandering from city to city, trying to make ends meet. It was on that note that we met the character at The Incredible Hulk . The modern Hulk is a wealthy man, accustomed to living in luxury. He is isolated from the rest of human society, his laboratory is more like a resort than a prison. It even has its own luxurious bar, where Banner used to enjoy drinks with his billionaire best friend. Returning to the previously mentioned criticism of Waititi, which version of the Hulk is more understandable - a working-class hero trying to cope with internal trauma, or a softer version of Tony Stark? nine0008

Humor is a priori a very specific thing, but it is by no means forbidden. Another thing is in what context it is applied.

It can be extremely difficult to successfully combine the internal tragedy of a character with comedy within the framework of a superhero project. In such cases, the humorous component must be correctly inscribed in the overall structure of the plot, where the main character is a really complex person. Bruce Banner is just such a hero. Having become a victim of an unsuccessful experiment, Bruce was forced to spend a huge period of his life on the run. However, saving yourself is only one thing, but protecting innocent people from the consequences of your decisions becomes an extremely difficult task. One slightest mistake, and the victims of the next release of the Hulk will be a crowd of people who find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time. nine0008

Bruce stubbornly trained himself to control his own emotions, cut off all previous ties, abandoned love, and soon experienced a series of unpleasant incidents that led to the massacre in Harlem, where the Hulk clashed in battle with the Abomination. Now imagine that such a hero one day starts walking around in the frame with a bare bottom, joking, using a burp, flying into a rock from the smooth acceleration of a jeep at a speed of 20 kilometers per hour. Sounds like a bad dream, doesn't it? At least the character now appears in a similar light. The writers are even smart enough to belittle Bruce's sacrifice. In series "She-Hulk" Banner's cousin Jen refuses to take advice from him when she gains the Hulk's powers, calls Banner a pathetic outcast who spends time alone and thinks only of himself. A very interesting way to build sympathy for the new heroine with the help of her disregard for her predecessor.

Not only the character of the Hulk suffers, but also the inner circle of the character.

The sad fate was not limited to Bruce Banner alone, cardinal changes also affected one of the main opponents of the Hulk, Emil Blonsky, played by Tim Roth. The character from the 2008 movie is back at She-Hulk . For comparison, the first appearance of the antagonist and his scene fourteen years after the debut:

And again - the problem lies far from the choice of comedy genre, it is clear that after so many years spent behind bars, people change. And that the battle-hardened, uncompromising and determined psychopath Blonsky, who longed to be the best fighter, turned into a hippie, talking about accepting the mistakes of the past at the snap of the screenwriters' fingers. Why is this transformation left behind the scenes? We just have to accept that the man who dreamed of getting the super soldier serum and smashed Harlem to smithereens would claim that the government was to blame for forcibly injecting him with that very serum? And the beauty is that the authors of the series, in all seriousness, claim that this is not Blonsky's cunning trick in order to get out of the cell, he's just a different person now. With no premise, no flashbacks, or minimal clarification, Abomination is now a good-natured guy doing Japanese haiku poetry. nine0008

As for She-Hulk. She's cool. Here's everything you need to know. Jennifer Walters gets her cousin's powers, but she doesn't need training. She doesn't have to fight a dark alter ego for years. She is better than Bruce in every way, and therefore says that she is used to controlling her anger, as her male colleagues in the legal field look askance at her every now and then. How Bruce, a man who was on the run from the government, wanted to put a bullet in his head, nearly killed the love of his life, appeared in the eyes of the media as one of the central threats to all of humanity and still did not lose heart, Jennifer can understand, right? Marvel Studios is simply unwilling to touch the hero drama, use it as a way to competently pass on the legacy to a new generation. Why, if you can reduce all topics to off-screen things (even Jennifer's transformation takes place off-screen, in just a few seconds) and then you don't have to take a steam bath. nine0008

Now all the prerequisites point to an imminent film adaptation of the comic arc "World War Hulk" .
