Hulk men

I was watching "Hulk Vs." with my 1-year-old boy Luke. Hulk was battling Wolverine, chasing him around, beating him into a bloody mess and wrecking countless trees in the forest.

I asked Luke who he wanted to win, Hulk or Wolverine. Without hesitation he replied "Hulk," which I found funny because he was so obviously the bad guy in the situation. Then I realized that I had been rooting for the Hulk all along as well, but was so sure Wolverine would escape that I hadn't acknowledged my yearning. Wolverine is annoying and whiny, and the Hulk was doing his best to eradicate the problem. We Villarreals, we're Hulk men.
