My question, then, is, what is his reason for transforming when on the helicarrier earlier in the movie? Does he not have control at that point? Or is he in control and has other motivations for "Hulking out"? Could it be that he knew what his transformation would mean and actually contributed--willingly--to the bonding of the team???
Just a thought...
I don't see how the two transformation versions are mutually exclusive.
