Bruce Banner spent his entire life attempting to recreate the Super-Soldier Serum that created Captain America. Bruce eventually theorized that the missing ingredient was Gamma radiation, and his lack of funding eventually led to him testing it on himself.
Instead of becoming a Super-Soldier, Bruce mutated into a large green rage monster who called himself the Hulk. He then spent the next several years on the run from the military before he found himself in a situation where he teamed up with superheroes Iron Man and Thor. This led to them forming the Avengers and continuing to recruit other heroes as the years went by. They even eventually discovered Captain America himself.
However, things changed after Ragnarok spread throughout the entire galaxy. During the chaos, Bruce and the Hulk found themselves mystically separated by Thor's trickster brother, Loki. Once the Andromeda System was put into place, Bruce settled on Earth while Hulk made a place for himself on Sakaar.
Bruce was secretly relieved to be separated from the Hulk, but felt bad for being ill-equipped to defend the people of Earth during this fragile time. However, he eventually found himself joining S.H.I.E.L.D. in order to work as their Scientist Supreme in close quarters with Director Susan Smith and Dr. Leo Fitz.

- Bruce was instrumental in the experiment that led to James Rhodes becoming Captain Gamma. Ever since his powers of super strength, energy projection, and flight have emerged, Bruce has grown slightly jealous of him.
