Son of Hulk
Skaar is the son of Bruce Banner. Bruce and Caiera the Oldstrong conceived the child. Skaar begun life as a villain but his father helped him learn to differentiate good and evil. He looks more Hulkish than human. Skaar is also the brother of Hiro-Kala.
The Birth of Skaar: Son of Hulk
The Illuminati considered the Hulk an unacceptable potential risk to Earth. Therefore, they rocketed him into space to live a peaceful existence on a planet uninhabited by intelligent life. After a trajectory malfunction, the Hulk crashed on the violent planet Sakaar. During his stay, Bruce Banner met Caiera and they had a ‘romantic’ relationship while he was the Hulk. The vessel used to send Bruce to Sakaar explodes, killing millions, including the Banner’s second wife, Caiera the Oldstrong, and damages to the tectonic plates nearly destroying the planet. Enraged, the Hulk returns to Earth with Sakaar’s citizens, and his allies, the Warbound, for retribution against the Illuminati. After Caiera’s death and Bruce’s departure from Sakaar, the cocoon containing Skaar (Caiera’s an alien. Don’t ask questions!) fell into a lake of fire. The preteen Skaar emerged. It only too him a year to grow into a teenager both physically and mentally. However, due to his lack of parents, Skaar learned that he must kill in order to survive. As he matured into adulthood, Skaar was able to use the power of the Oldstrong a.k.a. the Old Power: the ability to draw power from the planet Sakaar.
Skaar Worries His Mother
Caiera’s spirit could see everything that Skaar did. She judged that he wasn’t being a good role model to her people. Instead of bringing peace of Sakaar, Bruce Banner’s son was seeking revenge on his enemies and killing everyone he deemed evil. Caiera and the Silver Surfer were able to strip Skaar of his power. However, as always, Galactus followed the Silver Surfer and was headed to eat the planet Sakaar. Tricking his mother into giving him back his powers, Skaar destroyed his peoples only method of escape, a space ship. The spirit of Caiera was left with no choice but to banish him to Earth through a wormhole. Skaar watched as his mother sacrificed herself to Galactus hoping to sate his hunger with an enormous amount of Old Power. This act of sacrifice could save billions since Caeira the Oldstrong’s power could sustain Galactus’ hunger for years to come. Yet, this was all pointless. Before Skaar had completely disappeared in the wormhole, Skaar used his Old Power to reawaken Galactus’ need to feed. So far, Skaar is pretty much a villain… This is the end of the Planet Skaar comic book story.
First Encounter With Earth
Almost immediately after arriving on Earth, Skaar got into a fight with Bruce Banner. Skaar’s father was currently manifesting himself as the Green Scar, one of the many incarnations of the Incredible Hulk. It was the Green Scar that had been Banner’s incarnation during his time on Sakaar. Skaar wanted revenge on his father, because he felt as if Banner had abandoned the planet and his family. Skaar was loosing until Bruce regressed into the Savage Hulk. Skaar didn’t care to fight this incarnation so he left.
Father and Son
It’s really weird how Skaar began to work together with his father. Bruce Banner had finally being ‘cured’ of his monster disease by the Red Hulk. He offered to teach his son how to beat the Green Scar. They had many adventures together. I’d read the comic series if I were you!
As usual, Bruce Banner ended up being able to transform into Green Scar a.k.a. Incredible Hulk once more. All these variants sure are confusing! Skaar was pleased that he would finally get the revenge he wanted. Yet, after witnessing his father prevent civilian casualties, Skaar realizesd the errors of his ways. Bannner and his son end up hugging and being friends again!
Skaar vs. Hiro-Kala
As soon as Skaar got used to being the son of the Hulk and part of a ‘normal’ family, he had a premonition. He could feel Hiro-Kala, the brother he had never met, using his power to propel the planet K’ai toward Earth. Hiro-Kala also wanted revenge on the Hulk for abandoning him. According to Skaar, the only action that could save the Earth from total destruction was killing this other son of the Hulk. In the end, Hiro-Kala was not killed but imprisoned someplace where he would no longer be a threat to society.
