A question about the Hulk
When thin, meek Bruce Banner explodes out of his clothes to morph into the Incredible Hulk, how come his purple trousers don’t burst? Are they made of some kind of super-stretch fabric? After all, they seem to fit him in the Banner persona pretty well.
If they are made of some infinitely stretchable fabric, why aren’t the rest of his clothes made of the same stuff? It would save the Banner version one hell of a lot in shirts and jackets, not to mention socks and shoes.
And if the fabric is so magical, why isn’t it being sold on the market? People gaining or losing a lot of weight – not to mention parents of growing children – would kill for such stuff. Think of the savings.
One last question – are Banner’s underpants made of the same material as well, or is he always commando?
