I really think all those people who complained of not enough Hulk Smash really didn't understand the character much at all.

It's like the least interesting thing about the character. Psychobabble is at the core of who the Hulk is.

If there was one time where they shied away from his psychology, it would've been during Planet Hulk, and even in that story, it was more about character interaction and drama and social commentary than Hulk just beating things up.
Well said.
