And I'm not talking about that lawsuit over the "Incredible Hulk" name.

No, I was reading WrestleCrap's latest entry on the history of pro wrestling in comic books, and I noticed their mention of the epic "Hulk vs Hulk" confrontation in the pages of "Marvel Comics Presents". Doing a little further research (it was issue no. 45), I stumbled across this:

http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix3/hulkhogantwogun.htm

Real Name: "Hulk" Hogan (first name unrevealed)

Identity/Class: Human (Old West era, see comments)

Occupation: Tough guy

Group Membership: None

Affiliations: Unnamed friends

Enemies: Two-Gun Kid (Clay Harder)

Known Relatives: None

Aliases: None

Base of Operations: Unnamed town, 1800s

First Appearance: Gunsmoke Western#63 (March, 1961)

Powers/Abilities: Hulk was a strong, powerful man who could shatter wooden tables by striking them. He carried a pair of guns, but preferred to use his fists in a tussle.

History: (Gunsmoke Western#63/2) - One night at a bar, after seeing how adept the Two-Gun Kid was with his guns, Hulk decided to prove to everyone that he was better than the Kid. He challenged the Kid to a fight, and started by throwing him across the room. The Kid drew his guns, but Hulk removed his own, using the Kid's sense of honor to prevent him from shooting an unarmed man. Hulk was easily the Kid's better in hand-to-hand combat, but the Kid frustrated him by dodging his blows. When he threw a table at the Kid in frustration, the Kid observed that he had disregarded his own rule about weapons, then used his guns to shoot a chandalier, making it fall over Hulk's head. The Kid then beat Hulk repeatedly until he smashed him through the wall of the bar and on to a cart outside.


Since this "Hulk" Hogan made his first appearance WAY back in 1961, I'd say Mr. McMahon had been itching to name one of his characters "Hulk Hogan" for quite awhile ...

What a find. Impressive really.

This screen:


Really screams Hogan v. Andre

Was Vinnie Mac an old school comix fan?



My favorite moments of WWF No Mercy for the N64:

1. Winning the tag team belts with a team composed of Cactus Jack and Mankind.

2. Winning the Women's Championship as Triple H.

Hey Chaplow, Vince McMahon Sr. named Terry Bollea "Hulk Hogan."

Yea for a long time any WWF ad or video using the Hulk Hogan name had Marvel Comics listed as a copyright. I dunno if Hogan owns the name now or is paying royalties or what.

isnt he just allowed to use the name as he pleases cause he legally changed his name to Hulk Hogan?

I don't think doing that allows someone to get around copyrights.

"Ravishing Rick Rude" and "Warrior Jim Hellwig" beg to differ.

Well it's not a movie, and its not even Tough Enough, but something I came across earlier today in the TV Guide sounds like it could rank right up there with all the backyard wrestling specials.
