Except for all the times when he *is* a monster, and is dangerous to people for no reason. Like when he decides to destroy New York City because of a newspaper article. Or the time he killed Soul Man, because of crazies.
The Hulk's central premise is not that he's a harmless lovable stuffed animal who evil people make dangerous. The Hulk's central premise is that he is *insane*. He is the Monster, unpredictable and uncontrollable. Sometimes he's harmless, sometimes he's intelligent, sometimes he's in control. . . and sometimes he's not.
