(Ben Cooper 1968 catalog) - Having emerged from the giant television-shaped pumpkin, the Hulk appeared alongside the Thing, Capt. America and a slew of other heroes.


(Ben Cooper 1976 catalog) - Hulk, now sporting a sleeveless costume, joined Spiderman and others, crouching down in an angry pose.

(1970s Ben Cooper comic book advertisement) - Hulk teamed with Captain America and Spiderman for a Halloween night of trick-or-treating.

(Ben Cooper 1980 catalog) - Hulk appeared alongside other "tv super heroes" and later joined Spiderman and Spider-Woman alongside other heroes, where he briefly switched from a sleeveless costume to first, a sleeved costume with a picture of his bare chest on it, then a poncho with a masked hood.








Comments: Created by an uncredited writer and artist.

I could not determine when exactly the actual real life Halloween costume first appeared on store shelves but it was definitely at some point in the 1960s, likely just prior to the first advertisement featuring Hulk.

It was not clear if the Hulk had any superhuman powers and if he did, it was not revealed how he obtained them.

If not clear, this version of Hulk was based on the Ben Cooper, Inc.'s real-life Halloween costume and covers all of the Ben Cooper Hulk's printed appearances that I'm aware of. I'm sure there's many more out there in old newspapers or long-since-forgotten Ben Cooper catalogs so if you see another appearance, let me know and I will update this profile accordingly! I've included an image of the real Halloween costume for comparison to the printed version. When exactly the real-life

Also, the "misspellings" in Hulk's affiliations and enemies ("Darth Vadar" and "Yado," for example) are spelled exactly as they appeared in the Ben Cooper catalogs, suggesting that on Earth-313710, that is how these characters spelled their names.
