Real Name: Unrevealed (likely Bruce Banner)
Identity/Class: Extradimensional (Earth-81698), (presumably) human mutate, Old West era (see comments)
Group Membership: None
Known Relatives: None
Base of Operations: Unrevealed
First Appearance: Marvel Super Heroes II#98 (June 1981)
Powers/Abilities: Two-Green Kid possessed superhuman strength and durability, presumably equivalent to his Earth-616 counterpart. He appears to have retained more of his intellect than his 616 counterpart commonly did, sufficient to use firearms
History: (Marvel Super Heroes II#98) - Two-Green Kid was a gamma powered gunfighter who mixed it up with Old West owlhoots.
Comments: Created by Herb Trimpe.
By the early 1980s, the US incarnation of Marvel Super-Heroes was a reprint title republishing early 1970s Hulk stories. In MSH #97, a series of new, bonus posters were included after the reprint story, initially drawn by Herb Trimpe. In MSH #98, Trimpe produced two tongue-in-cheek alternate versions of the Hulk, and through the remaining run of the title, up until its cancellation with MSH #105, several more variant Hulks were showcased, alongside more standard Hulk posters (MSH #102 has only a regular poster, and MSH #105 has an alternate Hulk alongside a regular poster, while MSH #100 skipped the posters entirely). For the main image above, I've scanned a close-up of the Hulk himself, but the full poster can be seen to the left for those who are interested.
I've somewhat cheated with this profile - the text box for
this poster wonders if this is the Two-Green Kid, then specifically states
it isn't, and that it is just the Hulk (presumably 616) battling Old West
owlhoots. Presumably, if you wanted to take this to be a 616 canonical image,
we've got an unseen tale where the Hulk, presumably with Banner's mind in
control, either time traveled back to the Old West or encountered Western-style
gunfighters (maybe in one of the Old West theme towns that exist as tourist
attractions). However, for the purposes of the profile, I've run with the
idea of it being the Two-Green Kid - after all, dreams and daydreams have
been established as being valid alternate realities before, so the very act
of suggesting this could have been the Two-Green Kid probably makes it true
somewhere in the Omniverse. And if he is a valid alternate Hulk, then he
may either be a counterpart to one of the 616 Two-Gun Kids, or an old West
version of Bruce Banner.
The full list of the "alternate Hulk" posters is as follows:
It is interesting to note the stylistic differences between the two creative teams: Trimpe's Hulks could all potentially be the 616 Hulk transported to various settings during a period when Banner's intellect was dominant; Stern and Austin's Hulks are definitely alternate reality Hulks.
