Robert Bruce Banner, M.D., Ph.D., is a renowned scientist and a founding member of the Avengers. As someone who was highly respected for his work regarding biochemistry, nuclear physics, and gamma radiation, he was commissioned by Thaddeus Ross to recreate the Super Soldier Serum which created Captain America, although Ross elected not to inform Banner what he was creating. However, when an exposure to high levels of gamma radiation instead of vita radiation went awry, the mild-mannered scientist had found that when angered, provoked or excited, he would transform into the huge, rage-fueled, nearly mindless creature known as Hulk.

Note: This version of the Hulk is the one from Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Immortal. So far, there is no known method of killing the Hulk. The only way to temporarily stop his rage is through rendering him unconscious, which causes him to revert to his Banner form. As such, he automatically passes all of his death saving throws in either form and cannot be killed by taking massive damage.
