He is usually bigger, stronger and smarter then the Hulk. Introduced in Tales to Astonish #90 (1967) by Stan Lee and Gil Kane, Emil Blonsky was a Soviet spy that was assigned to infiltrate General Ross’s military base. While spying on Bruce Banner, Blonsky used one of his machine Banner created to kill the Hulk and was bombarded with Gamma Radiation, transforming into a scaly monster that Betty Ross dubbed Abomination. However, unlike the Hulk (most of the time), he still retained his own intelligence. He would go onto fight the Hulk, who he would have a great hatred for and would be transported by The Stranger to the Stranger’s home planet.

After battling Silver Surfer and later Thor, he eventually returned home to Earth and would continue his battle with Hulk. While serving the Galaxy Master as the Ravager of Worlds, he would return to space and eventually wound up on an asteroid. He would be rescued by Captain Cybor and would return to Earth. After the Hulk was given a presidential pardon when he had Banner’s mind, Ross teamed up with MODOK to revive Abomination but was defeated and disintegrated by MODOK. He would be revived again by Tyrannus, who tried to take over his body but made him a mindless beast. He would regain his mind after he was kidnapped by the Sentinels. He later began working with the Leader but Hulk splashed him with Toxic waste which melted his skin (he got better). He would later become the protector of a group of homeless people called the Forgotten.

He then enacted his most evil act of vengeance against the Hulk. Learning that Banner had married and was living a happy life with Betty Ross, Abomination inject his radiated blood into Betty while she was hospitalized. She would become sick and later died with Banner believing that she became irradiated because she was near the Hulk. Banner eventually learnt the truth and, while he did fight Abomination, he would walk away from the fight without enacting any sort of revenge against Abomination. After revealing Betty’s cryogenically preserve corpse, General Ross convinced Hulk to bring Abomination into military custody. After working for Home Base, Abomination was killed by the Red Hulk in a Russian prison. He would eventually return, first in the Choas War and later revived by the Ancient Order of Shield.

As Hulk’s second most famous villain, Abomination has had a good number of figures over the years. He received a figure in the Toybiz Hulk Classic line which was later repackaged with a Spider-man in the Spider-man Classic Line. His first Marvel Legends figure was in Series 13 (the Onslaught wave) which also has a variant of his melted face. Hasbro would later released him as part of a SDCC exclusive figure and later repainted it as a BAF in the Captain America: Civil War line.


Classic

Recommend Figure:  Hasbro Marvel Legends Captain America: Civil War Abomination wave – Abomination (BAF) OR SDCC Exclusive The Raft Box set – Abomination with Enchantress, Dreadknight, Purple Man, Sandman and Spider-man

  • Background:
    • Just like many monster type characters, Abomination has been drawn differently over the years, including what color he actually is. As such there is no one classic version BUT many generally use the basic design shown above.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:
    • If you are a Hulk fan, then you will need a Abomination figure in your collection. He is Hulk’s second most important villain, after the Leader. As for which one, it’s up to you which color you like or which is easier to get. If you don’t want it for your Hulk collection, then can also get it for your Avengers and Thor collection.
  • Does it need a remake?:
    • Not at the moment but I think Hasbro should make a bigger version.


Melted Body

Recommend Figure:  Hasbro Marvel Legends Series 13 Onslaught series – Abomination

  • Background:
    • During a battle with the Hulk while Abomination was working with the Leader, Hulk splashed Abomination with toxic waste that melted his whole body. While most of his body healed, his face remained melted for quite a while.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:
    • This isn’t an absolute most and is only for people who have to have every version of a character. Only get if you can find it cheap.
  • Does it need a remake?:
    • No. Not needed.
