Hey guys! Today we'll be talking about Samson. He might not be the best known Marvel hero but this blog isn't only about the movies and the spotlight. Marvel has a lot of great heroes under the radar as well and with our posts we also hope to inspire people to read about the lesser known heroes.

Samson was born and raised in Oklahoma. He was the son of a some what perverted psychiater who made a habit of sleeping with his patients. First Samson didn't want to have anything to do with psychiatrists but eventually he gained his PhD on the subject in college.

Later he joined the army working together with general Ross. One day Samson was able to save Betty's (his daughter) life and gained the trust and approval of Ross. He also worked on a cure for Banner together with Banner himself and the two actually figured it out. They were able to cure Banner but Samson always longed for some supernatural powers so he messed with the machine that saved Banner and he irradiated himself with the machine that cured hulk. The result was that the slim brown haired guy turned in a muscled, green haired gaint.

Banner didn't really enjoy his cure since his dream wife Betty fell for the new and handsome Samson and the two became romantically involved. Bruce than later turned himself back into the hulk and fought Samson.
Hulk won the fight (by far) but Betty chose the weaker defeated Samson over the raging Hulk.

Samson appeared in the Civil War, World War Hulk, The Dark Reign series and a lot other Hulk related stories.
Next to the hulk he can't really win but this doesn't mean he isn't a strong guy, be sure to check him out!
