While I am talking about mass, there is something that always bothered me. Bruce Banner is a pretty normal-looking human, right? But then he turns into The Hulk .... So, if he goes from 70 kilograms as a human to almost 300 kg as The Hulk, where does the extra mass come from?
But what if The Hulk doesn’t change mass? In this case, he would still be 70 kg, but have a different density.
Using the same values for heights, this would put The Hulk’s density at 0.24 times the density of a human. If I assume about 1,000 kg/m3 for a human, the Hulk would have a density of 240 kg/m3. Just to compare, this is similar to the density of cork
Half the time it seems like Hulk is supposed to be some kind of mindless rage machine that smashes anything it finds, and the other half he's a big strong brute who knows exactly who is the good and bad guys and gals are, like a big green strong Bruce Banner.
100% Beanplate, 0% fun.
I think this is what annoys me the most. Part of the point of these things is that they exist in a place where the laws of physics can bend like taffy, and invariably someone will go 'that can't work under the laws of physics' and complain about it being 'unrealistic'.
That example is interesting - the Heisenberg compensator doesn't really offer any explanation at all, BS or otherwise. It's just saying "Yes, we're aware that the star trek transporter, as we're presenting it, is impossible under our understanding of physics. So what if we tell you there's a special part that breaks that law of physics? Then can you shut up and let us tell the damn story, please?"
It wouldn't have taken much effort for the Avengers animation team to show cracked concrete at The Hulk's departure points. It's not a failure of money or time, it's a failure of imagination. I have a feeling that future CGI productions will take such criticism to heart, and make forthcoming superhero films that much more convincing.
