No one ever said. Miken Ayers made that up.

Here is something Jeph Loeb ACTUALLY stated about the show when I interviewed him last march:

TOONZONE NEWS: In S.M.A.S.H., it's amazing to me that you have the whole Hulk family all working together on the same team. Especially that you have the Hulk there with Red Hulk, since normally they are trying to kill each other. What is it that would bring a team of lone wolves like that together to fight alongside each other?

JEPH LOEB: I think that what folks will get kick out of when they see Agents of S.M.A.S.H. — which is not until a year away from now — but without giving anything away, I think the old adage of "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer" does pay off a lot. It's also when you're a Hulk, there's not a lot of opportunities for you to have friends, so sometimes you have to look to people who really understand the world that you live in. All five of these characters — Hulk, Red Hulk, Skaar, She-Hulk, and A-Bomb — all have in some way felt the sting of what it is both to be a hero and be called a monster, which is in many ways kind of a classic Marvel conundrum. You can be the world's greatest hero, but on the same token that doesn't mean the public loves you. That's one of the things that's an awful lot of fun about the show. It's a show that is built around how the Hulk does his best to show the world that he is in fact a hero. I think that after people see Marvel's The Avengers feature, they'll have a much better sense as to where the Hulk is headed not only in the movies but in animation and in the comics in the coming year. It is a real drive by us to see the Hulk as a hero.
