What happens when two behemoths go head-to-head? You get the latest Fanboy Faceoff that's what! Today's faceoff is between two of Marvel's biggest characters, and we do mean big. We're talking about non other than the Hulk and the Thing. This isn't the first time these two have battled as there have been many a battle between them in the Marvel comic universe. It's always an event, so let's see why.

These two have a lot in common and the most notable is their size. They each possess superhuman strength, speed, stamina and durability. Both were born normal men and were changed into their respective forms due to accidents with Bruce Banner becoming the Hulk due to gamma radiation and Ben Grimm becoming the Thing from exposure of cosmic radiation. Despite these similarities, there is one notable difference between these two. While Banner changes into the monstrous Hulk when angered and spends most of his life in human form, Grimm's tranformation into the Thing is a permanent.

Another similarity between these two is that each have appeared in big budget films that have had less than stellar results. The Hulk hit the big screen in 2003 and again in 2008 bringing in $487 million worldwide. The Thing appeared in the two Fantastic Four films that hit theaters in 2005 and 2007. The two films did better than Hulk, bringing in a total of $607 million worldwide. The Hulk's box office take should significantly improve when The Avengers hits theaters this summer. Fox has announced plans to reboot The Fantastic Four, but no official release date has been set.

So how would these two fair in a one-on-one fight? The Hulk is one of the toughest comic book character ever and his power only increases as his anger increases. As for weaknesses, the Hulk has few, with his lack of intelligence being the most notable. Though Bruce Banner has genius level intellect, Hulk does not. With his power completely dependent on rage, Hulk has very little concern about destroying whatever gets in his way.

The Thing, on the other hand retains the intellect and emotions of Ben Grimm and would be conscious of the destruction these two battling would ultimately cause. Would this be the Thing's downfall against Hulk? On the flip side, the Thing doesn't sacrifice intelligence for strength. Could intellect be just what Thing needs to take down the Hulk or would brute strength be the only factor in this match?

The decision is now in your hands. Which of these two mighty forces do you think will be victorious in this week's Fanboy Faceoff? Let us know in the comments below or tweet us @ClevverMovies with the hashtag #CMFF. I'm Tatiana Carrier, thanks for watching.
