The Hulk is a monster, he should be constantly dangerous. That moment in Avengers where Hulk seemed like he was ready to smash Cap just for speaking to him. That's a rage monster. That's a force of nature. A big green lughead playing cards with his buddies isn't really an epic mythic character. It's a gag, on some level.
I couldn't disagree with you more. Hulk is not a monster and is only dangerous when people keep shooting at him. The point is that others think he is a monster.
I prefer the more recent interpretation where banner is the monster and Hulk is the beast.
But hey I don't want to see the Hulk be the most articulate but I wouldn't mind him chiming in and do some nice grunts and hand movements.
