With UK exiting from the European Union on 31st October 2019 UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson compares himself to the Incredible Hulk by securing the UK’s exit from the EU.
Johnson told a UK tabloid- Daily Mail interview this weekend, “The madder Hulk gets, the stronger Hulk gets…Hulk always escaped, no matter how tightly bound in he seemed to be – and that is the case for this country. We will come out on 31 October and we will get it done.”
Hulk works best in a team and a disaster when alone
Ruffalo, who has portrayed the green giant for the last 12 years, took to Twitter and countered, “Boris Johnson forgets that the Hulk only fights for the good of the whole. Mad and strong can also be dense and destructive. The Hulk works best when he is in unison with a team, and is a disaster when he is alone. Plus…he’s always got Dr. Banner with science and reason.”
All the other Hulk characters the PM had overlooked and the rise of memes
The actor is no stranger to politics, as he backed Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn in the 2017 UK general election against former Prime Minister Theresa May. His remarks highlight the Hulk’s connection to his human counterpart Bruce Banner. He emphasizes the Hulk’s heroic efforts through teamwork while using Banner’s logic and reasoning.
Johnson’s comments have drawn widespread derision on social media and Ruffalo’s post — which has gone viral — has sparked a slew of Marvel-themed memes concerning the UK PM.
