I remember buying Hulk # 271 off the racks when I was 9. RR was a decently developed character, but it didn't stop me from being offended that a woodland creature was in my comic book about a fearsome rampaging monster.

You can give him a cigar, have him curse like a Stephen King novel, fire a big gun every 5 seconds.....but he's still a racoon. I don't mind animal-type characters like Ursa Major, but any character that screams "DISNEY XD" makes me wince.
