The Purple Golden Age Hulk?!?





From a recent conversation with my 6 year-old son:

The Boy: (sounds Very Serious) Daddy?
Me: What's up kid?
Did you know there was a purple Hulk once?
Really?
Yes. He was made in the Golden Age by DC Comics, but they gave him to Marvel later.
That's amazing! How come I never heard about this? What was his secret identity?
(Thinks about it) Jimmy Olsen.
Jimmy Olsen?!?
Yeah. He was the Hulk before he knew Superman.
Gregory, this is HUGE. Do you mind if I share this with my readers?
(An excited jumble of words amounting to): I insist that your readers write and produce a movie about the Purple Hulk! (Runs away roaring)
Me: I'll take that as a yes!

Well, we have a new and awesome reason to get cracking on developing the technology to breach the barrier between timelines...

Wow! I, for one, am charmed by the concept and by your son's enthusiasm. Makes me wish I had all three volumes of the Purple Hulk Archives...

Brilliant!

We should get your 6 year old son together with my 5 year old son. Together, they could make comics fun again. :-)

reminds me back in the late seventies or maybe early eighties I had a set of marvel top trumps (heck I still have them) and for some reason the abomination was purple and because I'd only seen the abomination in the black and white marvel UK reprints I thought he was purple and had a big argument with some other comics freakjob about it which of course I lost...Betrayed by my own top trumps.

Is there anymore information you could give on this "Purple Hulk"? I have searched the net over trying to find just one more piece to this puzzle and have come up with squat. I would love to hear back from you with anything else you can shed some light on.

Read the text in my post again; it was just a fake cover I put together with MS Paint based on a silly comment my son made. There was no REAL Golden Age Purple Hulk! (The original cover was The Incredible Hulk #3: http://www.comics.org/issue/17154/cover/4/)
