Information on the rapper
Bruce Banner is a physicist who physically transforms into the Hulk under emotional stress and other specific circumstances at will or against it. Banner acquired his powers through a gamma bomb detonation, causing him to absorb massive amounts of radiation and making his skin to turn green (in his first appearance, his skin was gray). He is also a founding member of the Avengers. The Hulk would go on to battle the military, as well as many supervillains such as Abomination, The Leader, Absorbing Man and more.
He is portrayed by Mark Ruffalo and Edward Norton (The Incredible Hulk only) in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as well as Eric Bana in the 2003 film, Hulk, and the late Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno in the 1978 television series, The Incredible Hulk. Ferrigno reprised his role as the voice actor for the Hulk in the 1996 animated series and in Marvel's 2012 film, The Avengers, as well as its 2015 sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron, while Ang Lee voices the Hulk in the 2003 film, Hulk.
As stated by Stan Lee, the Hulk's creation was inspired by a combination of Frankenstein's monster and Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde. He is ranked #9 on IGN's Top 100 Comic Book Heroes.
Verse 1 (Bruce Banner):
I'll school you in this battle of the baddest Bruce,
With your He-Man haircut and your Daisy Dukes.
I hear you're good at running; you're just like the Flash,
Especially in the 100 meter ditch-your-wife dash!
I'm an ace in the lab, acid, base, and treble,
So let me break you down on a molecular level:
You turned one gold medal to a lifetime of green!
The most overrated athlete anyone's ever seen!
You need to carry fatherhood across that finish line!
(Argh!) Kept up with the Kardashians, but left some kids behind!
Now, run along; you'll thank me 'cause I'm getting kinda cranky,
And trust me, you wouldn't like me when I'm angry!
[A transformation occurs, where Bruce Banner turns into the Hulk, and Bruce Jenner turns into Caitlyn Jenner. The Hulk is in green, and Caitlyn Jenner is in regular text.]
Verse 2 (The Hulk):
(Urrrgh!) That painted face don't give you class!
Just one more thing Bruce do for cash!
Best thing you make: Kylie ass!
She eighteen? Hulk SMASH!
Verse 3 (The Hulk):
(Argh!) Hulk is Hulk; no identify as man!
Me thinks Cait might understand!
No gender issue; this Jenner issue!
Just you being you is enough to diss you!
During Caitlyn Jenner's second verse:
Look, I understand that you hate yourself, (Huh?)
Laying you down, easy; that's kitchen tile! (Ugh!)
You look like a melted action figure of Glen Close
Went from cover of Wheaties to ugly bunches of gross
