Personality and Traits
Powers and Abilites:
Bruto possesses incredible superhuman strength and easily overpowered the Hulk for at least one time during their fight in the circus, even talking to him while he was doing it. He is superhumanly durable, able to withstand several of strikes from Mjolnir with little injury. In fact, the Hulk and Thor worked together to defeat him, though they may have done this for them working together frequently against opponents, and or swarms of enemies. It is unknown whether his arms' armor gives him superhuman strength,as Thor and the Hulk defeated him right after Hulk destroyed his arm armor, or if the armor just is for protection or serves some other purpose.
