I thought this was pretty interesting about Bruce.
He almost died at birth and often wishes he had. Robert Bruce Banner is the only son of Brian and Rebecca Banner and he had a very unhappy childhood. Bruce's father was an atomic physicist who worked for the U.S. government. The more Brian learned about radiation, the more he feared it. He started drinking to deal with his mounting stress and began to suspect that he had been exposed to trace amounts of radiation. Fearing it had altered his genetic structure, he was horrified to learn that Rebecca was pregnant. She suffered many medical complications and Brian became convinced that his son, Bruce, was some kind of a mutant. Although Bruce seemed a normal, healthy baby, Brian was convinced he would grow up to be a monster.

Bruce possesses a mind so brilliant that it cannot be measured by any known intelligence test.
Bruce Banner stands 5-ft-9-in tall and weighs about 130 lb
-First picture and 2nd paragraph-
Rebecca: ...And home! *holds baby Bruce up in the air and smiles* Look how alert he is-- How he smiles at the shining star mobile I've hung over his crib!
Brian: *looks over at Rebecca holding Bruce and thinks to himself* Look how she fawns over him! All of that time and attention used to be mine -- and mine alone!
DADDY DEAREST Brian's paranoia increased when Bruce began to show signs of a gifted intellect. Rebecca tried to defend her son, but Brian took his frustrations out on her and became increasingly more abusive. When she decided to leave him, Brian accidentally killed her in a fit of anger.
-second picture below the other one and 3rd paragraph-
Brian: The fault was mine, and I intend to correct my mistake... NOW! *hits Rebecca*
Rebecca: No! I won't let you harm Bruce--! *gets hit* OHHH!
IN FATHER'S FOOTSTEPS Brian Banner had an explosive temper and often lashed out at anyone who annoyed him. Young Bruce often watched in helpless horror as his father struck his mother. He prayed that one day he'd be strong enough to protect her.
-fourth paragraph to the bottom-
REPRESSED EMOTIONS Though still a child, Bruce tried to cover for his father during the resulting murder investigation, but Brian Banner was eventually convicted of manslaughter and sentenced to a mental institution. Bruce was sent to live with his mother's sister, Mrs. Elizabeth Drake. He was a shy an quiet child who rarely expressed any kind of emotion. The Drakes tried to get him to come out of his shell and enrolled him in a private school for gifted science students.
-top left picture on the right page/little sentence-
Mr. Woodman: Banner, you are the stupidest, most careless clothead ever to infest in my class!
Bruce: B-B-But, Mr. Woodman--!
Bruce's classmates mistook his shyness for arrogance and often made him the butt of their pranks.
-top right picture and paragraph-
"I dread the day when he finally lets it out!"
Bruce: *holding a vile filled with a chemical*
Person (idk): *thinks* This should shake you up a little bit, big brain!
PROBLEMS AT SCHOOL Science was the only thing that mattered to young Bruce. He devoted all his spare time and energy to his studies and ignored his classmates. He decided to become a doctor, but always remained fascinated with the study of radiation and came to believe that it could be used to cure many diseases. He also theorized that a gamma bomb could be designed to destroy property but leave the people alive.
-center picture and paragraph-
"It's weird how life works--two people from opposite ends of the social spectrum meeting like you did. She brought you out of your ever so hardened shell. You were her calming influence."
FATEFUL DECISION Bruce, though always a little shy, made a real effort to fit in with the other students when he went to college. However, his interest in gamma radiation intensified: after two years, he dropped out of medical school and decided to become a nuclear physicist.

Reporter: Chicago police still have no concrete leads on the whereabouts of fugitive Bruce Banner...
A MAN OF MANY FACES Hunted by the authorities, Bruce Banner has donned many disguises over the years and once shaved his head.
Dr. Bruce Banner cannot trust anyone , not even himself.
ALWAYS ON THE RUN Ever since the accident that transformed him into the Hulk. Bruce Banner has been a man on the run. He was run from the police, the government, clandestine forces, and the beast that lives within him. Once accused of murdering a young boy named, Ricky Myers, Banner attempted to clear himself while on the run.
-'center' picture to the right with Hulk looking at Bruce-
HAUNTED BY THE HULK Ever since he was a child, Bruce Banner has suffered nightmares. A monster stalked his dreams, destroying everything in its path. After being treated by Doc Samson, Bruce realized that this was how he had always seen his father. It is also the way he sees himself. In many ways, his relationship with the Hulk mirrors the one he had with his father. Bruce is trapped in a never-ending nightmare. He must contain the raging beast within or it will destroy everything he loves.
