Hulk
Universe
: Marvel, Hulk
First Appearance
: THE INCREDIBLE HULK (1962) #1
Real Name
: Bruce Banner
Alignment
: Hulk just wants to be left alone!
Brief Bio
: The Hulk is the strongest one there is, or so he says. A living engine of rage and destruction, the Jade Giant is strong enough to crack mountains and level cities. Plus, the madder he gets, the stronger he gets.  But trapped deep within the furious muscles of the Hulk rests the brilliant mind of Dr. Bruce Banner, transformed by a twist of fate--along with a healthy dose of Gamma radiation--into his brutish alter ego.  If you cross paths with Dr. Banner or his big green friend, don’t make them angry. You won’t like them when they’re angry.
Powers
: The Hulk possesses super strength, speed, agility, invulnerability and can heal from nearly any wound.
Play Style
: The Hulk is all about quick and dirty combos that put the hurt on his enemies. Hulk’s normal moves have great range and do some seriously savage damage at the cost of speed. The emerald warrior’s aerial movement is limited without an air dash, but his aerial combos bring pain, and in the right circumstances you can OTG (off the ground) into his Gamma Tsunami hyper once you’ve slammed your enemy back to earth.  Hulk is here to prove he’s the strongest there is.

Haggar
Universe
: Capcom, Final Fight
First Appearance
: "Final Fight," 1989
Real Name
: Mike Haggar
Alignment
: Good
Brief Bio
: Mike Haggar is just as familiar between the ropes of a wrestling ring as he is behind his desk as the Mayor of Metro City. That means when the Mad Gear Gang kidnapped his daughter, he didn’t mind getting his hands dirty and cracking a few skulls to get her back. A force to be reckoned with, Haggar means to keep Metro City’s streets free of crime and corruption, and he’s not against piledriving a few punks to make his point.  Metro City belongs to Mike Haggar, and don’t you forget it!
Abilities
: A former pro-wrestler, Mike Haggar excels in close quarters, punching and grappling his enemies into submission using a mix of street fighting and wrestling maneuvers.
Play Style
: Like Hulk, Haggar is all about the big damage, but he’s faster than Banner’s alter ego and his fighting style’s a little more refined. Haggar needs to get in close to do damage, but once he’s in, he’s not leaving ‘til you’re hurting. He can mix solid normal attacks with some nasty unblockable command grabs that will have your opponents heading for the hills. Also? Haggar’s piledrivers shatter psyches. Believe it!

      Hulk for Life! Haggar would never have a chance. Even if he had gamma injections into his face.

      Yeah, the only place Haggar can beat hulk is IN Marvel vs Capcom 3. Any other place, Hulk swats him like a fly (even though I like Haggar).

      I dunnow guys. I mean, Haggar has a pretty sweet mustache. I don't even know if the Hulk even has facial hair.

      Dumb poll. Hulk would win. It's like asking a cat to VS a car.

      Ridiculous notion. Ok, Haggar is a force to be reckoned with but only of you are an Edge City street thug or a Mad Gear henchman. The Hulk is in a different league! If an entire army cant stop the mean, green, gamma machine what hope does an ex-wrester have?
