strength, agility, and toughness. However, unlike the Hulk, Abomination has gills

hate for Bruce Banner.

bolts of lightning and fly using electromagnetic propulsion.

to undergo an experiment that eventually leads to his transformation into a being
of pure ionic energy…Wonder Man!

physics, Arthur Parks started his mercenary and professional criminal career by
utilizing wrist-mounted laser projection units and implanting miniature laser
