There is no sign of the Marvel character’s human origins in this pack, merely of his transformed state due to a “freak lab accident”. Thus, the colour green predominates! There is a certain amount of repetition in the designs – six different images on the court cards (rather than 12), the same nine images used for the numeral cards in each suit, but four different Aces and two different Jokers. It is curious how closely the surname of the principal actor in the film, Eric Bana, resembles that of the character he played, Bruce Banner, alias the Hulk! See the box►
