STANFORD BIOLOGIST SCIENTIFICALLY EXPLAINS HOW CAPTAIN AMERICA AND THE HULK GOT THEIR POWERS
The short, short version of both Captain America and The Incredible Hulk‘s origin stories is simply, “science.” Steve Rogers got injected with a serum that made him the perfect human specimen; Bruce Banner absorbed a bunch of gamma radiation that made him turn into a big, green (or sometimes gray) guy.
For decades, comics fans have pretty much just accepted those origin stories as science fiction, but Stanford University biologist Sebastian Alvarado says there are for-real scientific explanations for how the two heroes got their powers.

Today at the “Next Big Thing” panel, Marvel made a number of announcements about thier publishing line that take effect in June. Of particular interest are three major announcements: first, that Brian Wood will be writing both X-Men and Ultimate Comics X-Men in June; secondly, that Jeff Park and Declan Shalvey’s Thunderbolts will become Dark Avengers as of #175; and finally, that Dale Eaglesham will be joining Park on an arc in Hulk dealing with the Mayan apocalypse.
