Powers/Abilities: Hulk was a strong, powerful man who could shatter wooden tables by striking them. He carried a pair of guns, but preferred to use his fists in a tussle.

History: (Gunsmoke Western#63/2) - One night at a bar, after seeing how adept the Two-Gun Kid was with his guns, Hulk decided to prove to everyone that he was better than the Kid. He challenged the Kid to a fight, and started by throwing him across the room. The Kid drew his guns, but Hulk removed his own, using the Kid's sense of honor to prevent him from shooting an unarmed man. Hulk was easily the Kid's better in hand-to-hand combat, but the Kid frustrated him by dodging his blows. When he threw a table at the Kid in frustration, the Kid observed that he had disregarded his own rule about weapons, then used his guns to shoot a chandalier, making it fall over Hulk's head. The Kid then beat Hulk repeatedly until he smashed him through the wall of the bar and on to a cart outside.

Comments: Created by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers.

Clay Harder has been said to be a fictional character whose stories inspired Matt Hawk to become the Two-Gun Kid. If this is so, then Hulk still exists somewhere in the multiverse in whatever reality Clay Harder exists in as a real person.
