'Incredible Hulk' stomps through familiar mayhem of New York


As I am "The Incredible Hulk," I can kill people with a mere punch from my big, green hands. But at this moment in time, I have decided to crush an enemy soldier by picking up an air-conditioning unit and utilizing it to smash this gentleman's head. Squish.

This is satisfying for its linguistic value. You see, people say "utilizing" when they ought to say "use." They say they "utilize" a hammer by hammering a nail. But "utilizing" more fittingly means to use something for a purpose other than its original intent.

Ergo, I am "utilizing" this air conditioner by bashing someone's brains in with it. And this is linguistically fulfilling.

Or perhaps, I simply like creaming bad guys with heavy equipment.
