What would the gem for his power? I am very curious about the potential effects it would have.

Hulk in theory already has infinite strength potential though. I think hulk has stopped juggernault once before as WAR amped by apocalypse. But if Hulked had the gem, even without it at some point Dr strange warned hulk that he would destroy the multiverse if he kept absorbing gamma. So imagine with the gem...

I honestly think it would only marginally help Hulk.

@green_skaar: Really? Based on how much it helped Cain Marko i would have thought it would make a significant difference.

I think he means that the gem doesnt help Hulk as much as it does Cain. Cain is after all a normal human that gets beefed up to Hulk level when having the gem, Hulk however is already a massive powerhouse without the gem, so if given it, you wouldn't see such a huge difference.

Unless we dip into Loeb-territory and sends Hulk off to beat up people he normally cant, like Thanos or Odin.

Pretty much this, saved me from typing it out :)

Great point. I was just thinking as far as durability although the hulk is durable as it is too. Cain marko was street leveler prior to the gem right?

He would be more durable but as far as strength it wouldn't help much.

Am I the only one that thinks he would be stronger? He would now have 2 power sources. Some of you take the infinite too literal in terms of how much power Hulk can draw upon at any given instance. While his power source is infinite, how much power he has at any given moment is limited. Think of it like a hose that has infinite water it can call upon. Now think of Hulks power as that hose. As he becomes stronger, that hose widens and more power can flow through. With Cytorak he would have access to two sources of power. So 2 hoses. I figured everybody would realize this.

Hmmph...I think it'd make for a cool "What If" one-shot book. I kinda like the sound of the Unstoppable Hulkernaunt

@w0nd: He was thrashing Red Hulk.

I don't see why it hasn't been done already no one causes more damage than the Hulk and I'm sure Cytorrak would know who he is

I'd actually read the Hulk comics? Eh, no in all fairness, I don't see it doing much for Hulk. He basically has all of the abilities Juggernaut had if I remember correctly. So not much other than make him a beast in Bruce Banner form.

Interesting but dumb and redundant. It could be fun for a spin-off but this feels like it would be messy. Doc Green on the other hand could be interesting.

a peace of magic made by the gods can be unmade by so said gods just as fast. So to think that they could be hurt by the very powers they control at a whim is a joke.

Take the fight between Hulk and Galactus you could have them both fighting and Galactus goes down but you see some random figure come up and wipe the hulks brow and low and behold it is the big G laughing because he has that much power to be in many places at once. Cosmic forces are so potent no brute force could ever even hope to hurt it.

Hulk vs Galactus would be a joke fight at best. Hulk vs Odin or Zeus just crazy.

It's quite easy.

People would hate the Hulk even more than they do.

The Hulk doesn't need no gem to grant him more power, he needs to stop with the identity crisis, and the Banner hate.

If those two personalities that are actually one and the same worked together, there would be nothing he couldn't do.

And I don't mean just destroying stuff. But actually do some creative work.

I always assumed that the wielder becomes an avatar of Cyttorak. I didn't know that it's power was added to the wielder's power. Then again, I haven't read as many comics as you guys have.

@nomar: I do not see it doing much. Collossus was not that much stronger with the gem. Also doesn't the power you get from it depend on the destruction that you willingly cause. Hulk does smash but only when provoked and even then he is rarely out to hurt innocents or destroy for destruction's sakes. he justs wants to be left alone or show who is stronger. Heroic Juggs was weakened due to not following the desires of Cytorakk, Hulk would have the same issue because no one tells Hulk what to do. A bump in durability is the most likely option. The two hoses idea is a good model but it does not take into account that the source of the water from one of those hoses can cut itself off from the one using it.

Imagine if Banner had found the gem, both halves are ridiculously strong and invulnerable.

But if Hulk found it you'd just ask Reed Richards to put you on the first shuttle to the Shi-ar Empire
