A Hulky Conundrum

“Why is it that Bruce Banner never loses his pants when he turns into the Hulk?”

This is the question I asked my boss a few hours ago.

Yes, we’re that dorky.

If you think about it though, it’s a perfectly valid question. The guy loses his shirt, his shoes and even his socks, yet the pants always stay on. Sure they’re a little frayed and they, of course, hike up a bit to create Hulk Capri pants– even shorts sometimes. But they never fall off. They never split down the middle.

What is up with that?!

Does he expand everywhere else but manage to keep his tiny waist? Is he wearing pajamas jeans, jeggings, leggings or Spanx? Did he create special pants that would stretch during those moments of anger (and growth)?

Something to ponder.

    When did he get a chance to change into the purple underoos?
