[34/53] The Hunchback of Notre Dame → "What makes a monster and what makes a man? "
This was the inspiration for fuckyeahhond’s April Fools joke!
Yes, this is a real comic that came out in 1982. It was an adaptation of an episode from a Hulk cartoon series that was airing at the time.
The original episode can be seen here, and it features such things as
- Stan Lee narration (and his pronunciation of Quasimodo as “Quaz-ih-modo”)
- Quasi’s giant bat companion
- A ~shocking~ twist about Quasimodo
- Some doink trying to steal all the gold in France on a train
- The stupidest ending ever
So yeah, that’s how I came up with that April Fool’s joke. XD

The Bell Tower (score) - The Hunchback of Notre Dame
After the Hulk became more and more popular with Marvel fans thanks to Mark Ruffalo’s portrayal in The Avengers, people have been begging for a new Hulk film. Today, it has been officially announced that one of Marvel Studios’ upcoming films is indeed a Hulk sequel - and it contains a team-up with a familiar Disney character! Yes, the Incredible Hulk will be going against the Hunchback of Notre Dame himself in The Incredible Hulk vs. Quasimodo, to be released May 5, 2017!
The plot of The Incredible Hulk vs. Quasimodo is as follows: Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) has reconnected with his old girlfriend and lab partner, Dr. Betty Ross (Liv Tyler) and together they accompany Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) to Paris for an important meeting at Stark Industries’ French branch office. While they’re there, they hear the legend of Quasimodo, the Hunchback of Notre Dame. While on break, Bruce and Betty decide to go and see Notre Dame, and climb up to the bell tower. Upon reaching the top, Bruce discovers that the legend was true…Quasimodo miraculously still lives, and he’s angry! Can the Hulk save Paris from Quasimodo’s evil scheme? Why has Quasimodo become evil in the first place? And how does Tony’s secret project fit into all of this? Find out in The Incredible Hulk vs. Quasimodo, opening May 5, 2017!
Mod D: I think Phoebus was attracted to Esmeralda because of her bravery in standing up to Frollo at the Festival of Fools. He was skeptical about Frollo before, at the Palace of Justice, but seeing what happened at the FoF made him even more against Frollo. As for Esmeralda, she falls for Phoebus because he’s “not like the other soldiers” who hate and discriminate against and kill “gypsies” like Frollo does - Disney!Phoebus is much more compassionate.
(I’d be interested in seeing what the other mods think too ^^)

An alphabetical compilation:
Bells of Notre Dame
And some say the soul of the city’s
the toll of the bells,
the bells of Notre Dame
Come one, come all
See the finest girl in France
Make an entrance to entrance
Mod I - I don’t really feel that I know enough about Star Wars to really analyze the comparison between the two. But uh… even knowing very little… I do think that you could definitely consider both Han and Phoebus as the more compatible choices for Leia and Esme. Quasimodo had little social experience and while that may not neccessarily be a deal breaker for a romantic relationship, he wasn’t really on Esmeralda’s level. Luke I don’t know a ton about but I’m sure there was something that didn’t mesh well with Leia aside from them being siblings and all that. I guess I can see where the comparison is coming from, but there are some many differences between characters, especially Luke and Quasimodo, that it’s hard for me to make that comparison myself.
Mod P: I’m not very familiar with Star Wars either. From what you’ve said, I suppose the comparison is fair. I think the triangle in HoND is a bit more complicated in that there’s the issue of Quasi putting Esme on a pedestal as an angel, whereas Phoebus saw her as a human, and I don’t get the sense that that dynamic is in SW (I could be wrong, though, again, not as familiar as I could be). Simplifying it to “experienced guy vs. inexperienced” is ignoring a lot of other facets of the characters.
Other mod have any thoughts?
