The diminutive villain could have been Hulk’s most dangerous villain. Introduced in Incredible Hulk #163 (1973) by Steve Englehart and Herb Trimpe, Gremlin is the sons of the Soviet operative, Gargoyle, the first villain that Hulk fought who would betray the Soviets when Banner cured him of his radiation mutation. The Soviet would kill gargoyle, not knowing he had a son. The Soviet would make Gremlin, a mutated child genius, that the Hulk had killed his father. He would first fight with the Hulk in Canada and would capture and retain General Ross. He would later join the Soviet Super-Soldier and built is own version of the Titanium Man suit. He was eventually killed during a fight with Iron Man during the Armor War and his suit caught fire causing him to plunge into a frozen lake. This death would haunt Iron Man for year and was used by the Living Laser to torture him.
Gremlin would receive a figure as a pack-in with the originally design Mecha Hulk in the Toybiz Hulk Classics series 2.

- Even though he appears to be a person with dwarfism, Gremlin is actually a child with a genius level intelligence.
- Why do you need it for your collection?
- If you want to build the Hulk’s rogue gallery, you may want to get this. Mecha Hulk is an original design that Gremlin can ride. Both are expensive in and out of the box.
- Does it need a remake?
- Yes for Gremlin, not for Mecha Hulk as that is not a comic character. Maybe had Gremlin to come with a Titanium man.
Below you will find a gallery of suits that still need to be made. I have included what I think are the possibilities of them being made. Note that these are my personal opinions and not facts. Please let me know if I have missed anything.
