sacrilege to even mention the Hulk in the same sentence as Green Lantern

Green fits Banner but not Hulk. Red fits Hulk not Banner.

Yellow might fit as well since I'm fairly certain Hulk can scare the s**t out of people

Hulk is based off of rage and anger so I'd go with red lantern more.

@guttridgeb: Hulk is the personification of Banner's rage so obviously he has quite a bit in him

@joshmightbe: True, I was just thinking in terms of aesthetics, Bruce would look plain wrong as a Red Lantern :P

It would make a great Amalgam character.

No. Hulk would make a bad red lantern. He doesn't have what it takes. There's more to being a red lantern than just "rawr angry". As for Banner in the GLC, I don't think he'd last long since he'd keep turning into a huge green rage-monster.

As Atrocitus explains it in Blackest Night, most "rage" is the child of fear/sorrow/confusion/etc. The rage it requires to be a red lantern (which I shall refer to as "red rage") only stems from blame. You have to have been wronged -- HORRIBLY wronged -- and have a desire for vengeance so powerful that it attracts a red ring, which feeds off of death/blood. Hulk is angry, but not really for any person -- since his anger lacks a target, it would not qualify as red rage. Atrocitus would be ashamed by Hulk (before amd after kicking his ass).

his father, general ross, humanity as a whole, and the abomination could all considered focuses.it was his fathers abusive behavior that created the hulk persona in the first place.

Hulk a green lantern... Why? Just cause he's green? Not hating but that is like Bleez should not be in Red lantern cause shes blue she should be in hope. Also Hulk would if a lantern unlikely ever to become one no ring would ever choose him I think would be rage.
