Now the actor who portrayed the Incredible Hulk has ridiculed Boris Johnson

Scathing: Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk.

I thought I had found a great way to mock Boris Johnson’s recent attempt to identify with the Incredible Hulk by comparing him with Hulk villain The Abomination instead, but this is better.

My comparison provided an apposite description of Mr Johnson and his premiership so far – and some readers may also have enjoyed the connection with a character who appears to be a kind of reptile.

But Mark Ruffalo, who plays the Hulk and his alter-ego Bruce Banner in the Marvel movies, has gone one better – by pointing out that the Hulk is politically at odds with BoJob:

Mark Ruffalo, the actor who plays the The Incredible Hulk in the latest Marvel films, has challenged Boris Johnson after the prime minister compared himself and the country to the comic book character.

Promising to ignore the Commons legislation ordering him to delay Brexit if negotiations break down, Mr Johnson told The Mail on Sunday: “Hulk always escaped, no matter how tightly bound in he seemed to be – and that is the case for this country.

“We will come out on October 31 and we will get it done.”

He added in an aside that appeared to refer to himself as the hero that “The madder Hulk gets, the stronger Hulk gets”.

However, Ruffalo, who plays the Avenger in the Marvel series, appeared to disagree with the prime minister’s assessment of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s character.

He said that The Hulk was dependent on the community around him.

“Boris Johnson forgets that the Hulk only fights for the good of the whole” Ruffalo tweeted.

He added: “Mad and strong can also be dense and destructive. The Hulk works best when he is in unison with a team, and is a disaster when he is alone. Plus…he’s always got Dr. Banner with science and reason”.

    I have little interest in MCU films, but I’ve always liked Ruffalo as an actor ever since he starred in The Last Castle with Robert Redford. Now, I like him even more
