The next big movie coming around the corner is Avengers 2, and I think it's a great time to push the Supers Companion to the limits by figuring out the stats behind all the Avengers. Keep in mind that, like the Lord of the Rings folks, this is only using what we see in the films and other portions of the cinematic universe (that I've seen).

Bruce Banner was a nuclear physicist working on what he thought was a procedure to make humans immune to gamma radiation, but a freak accident transformed Banner into the Incredible Hulk—a Cosmic-level green monster with unparalleled strength and durability. The military, who had funded his research in the first place, are now hunting Banner down for his research and national security.
Over the last five years, Bruce has been on the run, learning Spanish, Portuguese, Bengali, and presumably others in order to keep moving. He is agile and very smart, learning martial arts and mental conditioning to try training his mind and body to contain the Hulk as best he can. By the events of Avengers, he is working as a doctor in China.
The monster inside, however, is a 7'6" foot tall musclehouse, and whenever Banner's heart rate passes above 200 (generally if he gets pissed), he transforms. Mechanically, this is represented as Berserk: Smarts roll (at –2) when Shaken/Wounded or he goes green. He is built like a tank and smashes like a small battleship. Once he gets going, the Hulk relentlessly pounds anything it doesn't like until it can't move. The Hulk's amazing strength grants him a variety of abilities: he can break over 30 mph at a sprint, and is able to leap enormous distances in a single bound. His enormous bulk and intimidating demeanor strikes fear into any that see him, and he is almost impossible to hurt (and even if you manage it, his Soak ability is frigging terrifying).
The reason Hulk has Nerves of Steel and Berserk is to keep the first wound from really impacting him without him having to go even more ballistic. While this may not be "optimal," it is what we see in the movies and that's what I'm basing everything off of.
I also use a slightly modified table for the speed and flight powers to provide another step of gradiency to the powers (a slight nerf off the tabletop, but otherwise not too big a deal. Makes the Hulk a little easier to make). I also use a variant of the Multiple Languages Setting Rule to account for the comics trope of being able to speak so many extra languages.
There's the first of our Avengers! Leave questions and comments and comic corrections below!
