To hell with this "Leonard's not here" evil alter-ego bullshit for War of the Hulks. This right here... THIS is my Doc Samson. (Well, this and his own mini, which I'll dig up later.)

Yeah, which is why I dislike both the "we all have rage" thing and the Geoff Johns attempt to retcon She-Hulk as transforming because of fear.

Bruce becomes the Hulk when he's angry because he repressed his rage. Jen becomes She-Hulk when she wants to have fun because she repressed her sensuality. And the Leader ... hmmm.

Heh. I know nothing about the Leader's pre-Gamma life, but maybe he was raised by oppressively incurious parents who forced him to repress his natural curiosity.

in the cartoon he was just a janitor as far as I remember. The problem with your theory on Jen is that at first she was like Bruce, and then when her current nature was out there she never became She-Hulk. She always was She-Hulk.

I can easily buy all of them having rage issues, though I think whatever causes the transformation is just whatever really spikes the adrenaline in the person changing.

Because you don't need to repress your "Let's have fun!" impulses nearly as much as you do your "Urge to kill ... rising!" impulses. If your strongest emotions are the desire to pound the shit out of people, you NEED to repress those, but if your strongest emotions are simply the desire to have a good time, a lot less repression is required. Bruce's urges made him anti-social, while Jen's made her hyper-social.

The Leader's comes either from a feeling of self-importance (which would explain his similarities with Omnibus), and/or due to a desire to be smarter than his brother, Philip (Madman).
