Interesting that he chooses to compare himself to the dumbest Avenger. (No Endgame spoilers here.)

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has compared himself to the Incredible Hulk in a newspaper interview emphasizing his determination to take Britain out of the European Union next month.
The prime minister faces considerable legal and political hurdles but told the Mail on Sunday he will meet the Oct. 31 deadline no matter what.
“The madder Hulk gets, the stronger Hulk gets,” Johnson told the widely read tabloid, invoking the comic-book and film character known for formidable but destructive strength.
Johnson remains defiant even though Parliament has passed a law requiring him to seek an extension to the Oct. 31 deadline if no deal is reached by mid-October. He has also lost his working majority in Parliament and been told by Scotland’s highest court that his decision to suspend Parliament was illegal.
Johnson portrays himself as undaunted and more convinced than ever that Britain will break with the EU at the end of October.
I’m sorry is Johnson trying to out immature Donald Trump?
What adult person compares themselves to a comic book character as a method of demonstrating a positive personality trait?
By the way the Hulk is indeed single-minded in his endeavors to achieve a goal, but that goal is often to destroy, injure, or kill the thing that he is focused on.
You do not send the Hulk into to negotiate a deal or hash out a treaty.
You send the Hulk in to smash the hell out of everything.
Whcih, now that I think about, seems to be the goal of Brexit as well.
I think my favorite part of this whole thing is that the actual Hulk, Mark Ruffalo, felt the need to set Johnson straight in a tweet.
Boris Johnson forgets that the Hulk only fights for the good of the whole. Mad and strong can also be dense and destructive. The Hulk works best when he is in unison with a team, and is a disaster when he is alone. Plus…he’s always got Dr. Banner with science and reason. pic.twitter.com/jN8BDzgpWl

Damn! When you are being schooled by the Hulk you know your life has taken an unfortunate turn.
