The Hulk: Frankenstein’s Monster For Our Time

Let’s make this quick and easy…..Mary Shelly’s
Frankenstein was about a monster created through
science, or, as well, the monster that Is science….
The Hulk is the update: can still be human, but
subject to uncontrollable outbursts….sort of like
the confused popular opinions towards atomic energy,
or…..: UFO’s, Global warming, and a host of other
hot buttons…boiling down to the endemic confusion
in society about whether we’re smart enough to save
ourselves from destruction, or, too stupid to avoid it.
