Real Name: Presumably Howard, possibly Duckson
Identity/Class: Extradimensional / Alternate Reality (Earth-18801; see comments) mutate
Occupation: Unrevealed...but likely an adventurer and trouble-into-getter
Group Membership: Unrevealed...maybe his world had Avengers or Defenders?
Affiliations: None known
Enemies: None known (but likely many)
Known Relatives: Presumably the same as the "mainstream" Howard the Duck)
Aliases: None known
Base of Operations: Presumably mobile on Earth-18801...you know, running from authorities and whatnot;
possibly formerly his native reality (see comments)
Howard the Duck II#8 (November, 1980)
Powers/Abilities: Bulky Duck was presumably superhumanly strong and durable, potentially with these abilities increasing with rage, or possibly angst, frustration, or sarcasm.
He may have been able to jump really high, but presumably could not fly...and probably not swim, either.
Bulky Duck was stupid.
Height: Unrevealed; since Howard is 2.7",
you'd think a Hulked-up Howard might be more like 3'5"...or maybe he's
way bigger, like human Hulk-sized, perhaps 7' or taller
Eyes: Presumably green (black and white magazine)
Hair: While the image does look like he has hair, it's probably feathers, which are presumably green (again...you know...black and white magazine)
(Howard the Duck II#8 (fb) - BTS) - In the alternate reality Earth-18801, under unrevealed (put presumably less-than-serious) conditions, Howard the Duck was mutated by gamma radiation into the green and stupid (and presumably strong) Bulky Duck.
(Howard the Duck II#8) - Presumably in response to someone commenting about his being a duck, Bulky Duck said, "Bulky Duck kill!"
Comments: Created by Dave Sim.
The inside front cover of Howard the Duck magazine#8 had a featurette
done by Cerebus-creator Dave Sims that had Howard musing to Bev (some
pillow talk) about how life might be different if he had
super-powers...he seemed to be at-least partially motivated to want to
be able to punish anyone who annoyed him by pointing out..."You're a
Regardless, in the infinite Multiverse, every reality exists, and a daydream can be considered a glimpse into the reality that mirrors it...
In reviewing this page, Howard
says "as long as I've taken up residence in the Marvel Universe,
howzabout some gamma rays make me...green and stupid." That would
presumably mean that this Howard diverged after leaving his native
world (like Kang the Conqueror), meaning Earth-18801 is a reality where
Howard the Duck arrived in humanoid duck form before being mutated by
gamma rays...so his native reality isn't changed, but, of course,
Howard's home is anyway, as he was native to Earth-47920, but then the
reality warp with Chireep overlapped his reality with Duckworld/"Earth-791021." Don't get me started...
Bulky Duck's apperances to date consist of a single panel. You, the reader, can write to Marvel and demand more appearances...they'll probably laugh at you...maybe even block you from further contact...but you can still do it...
Looking at the main and only
picture, I first wondered why he had teeth in his ears...then I figured
out that that was still his beak, back towards what would be the
commissure (part where the upper (maxillary) and lower (mandibular)
lips/cheeks came together).
