17 Reasons The Hulk Is The Bae-est Avenger

Who wouldn't love that face?

Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who's the bae-est Avenger of them all?

If your answer is anything other than the Hulk, you're doing it wrong. Step aside.

Here are 17 reasons why the big green guy -- and the actor who plays him -- is the Avenger we most want to write love poetry about and then have a good cuddle with.

  1. He's a man of few words.

    Enough said.

  2. He doesn't mind getting poked -- in the name of science.
  3. His IRL counterpart just wants to buy his kid Black Widow merch.


  4. Ruffalo is also all about that equality in comics themselves.

    Go Iceman!

  5. He's a real go-getter.

    Nothing get in the Hulk's way (for long).

  6. The other Avengers can identify him just from his arms.

    Those "sweet, hairy arms."

  7. No shoes, no shirt, no problem.

    Rules, schmules. If you've got it, flaunt it.

  8. He understands the importance of friendship.

    Help a Hawkeye out!

  9. He has great manners -- when he's human, at least.
  10. Just look at that winning smile!
  11. He's so good at sharing.

    Sharing gently, not so much. But it's a start.

  12. He lets you know how he feels.

    Mostly by roaring incoherently, but it gets the point across.

  13. He has a really versatile wardrobe.

    Instead of day-to-night, it's more human-to-monster.

  14. You really don't want to give this man a lingering hug?


  15. He loves holding hands.

    We'll hold your hand.

  16. He lets you know when he needs his space.

    It's really important to a relationship.

  17. He's just a necessary part of the team. Even Iron Man knows it.

So whatever, go on, pretend like you don't know a good thing when you see it. Act like you're all gaga for Thor or all about Captain America. We all know the truth: all that glitters is not gold, the real treasure is green. (That's how the saying goes, right?)
