How well would The Thing do against Savage Hulk starting at Hulk's baseline strength level and without both his healing factor and the ability to grow stronger? Does Ben get a win here in your opinion?
Ben wins 3-4/10 in this scenario. Hulk's baseline strength is still a good bit above Ben's and his durability is still greater than the Thing's... so I don't know that the healing factor will be an issue here on average. Savage Hulk is still more brutal, and Hulk's usual MO is to not get too much stronger than is necessary against his opponent anyway, so the "madder stronger" thing isn't used much against Ben either being that Hulk starts out strong enough to win. However, Ben is a competent fighter and a veteran's veteran... I never count him out completely!
