Pure Evil Wiki
NOTE: This page is only about his novel incarnation as the original film incarnation of Abomination was not voted Pure Evil, and thus only the novel version of Abomination's info and crimes should be put here.

Is that all you've got?
~ Abomination's famous quote

Emil Blonsky, also better known as the Abomination, is a major antagonist in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, serving as the main antagonist of the 2008 film The Incredible Hulk.

While his character is fairly standard in the original film, the novelization by Peter David gives him a more sinister motive in comparison to his film counterpart's. As the MCU stopped publishing novelizations of its films early on, David's novelization has different standards to those shown in the films.

What Makes Him Pure Evil?

  • When he and his soldiers break into Bruce Banner's house, he tranquilizes Bruce's dog just for barking at him.
  • Didn't care at all if he harmed bystanders in his way while doing missions.
  • Tried to kill Bruce Banner with the help of his black ops team in Rio de Janeiro.
  • Asked to be injected with a Super Soldier Serum replicant variant under the excuse that he wanted to capture Bruce Banner when in reality he desired to gain the power of life and death over those weaker than him.
  • Disobeyed his superior's orders and charged into the room where Bruce Banner was speaking with Samuel Sterns and Betty Ross, his superior's daughter, and slaps Bruce with the hopes of triggering his transformation. When he fails, he knocks Bruce out.
  • Killed a soldier for stopping him in his assault on Banner.
  • Knocked out Major Kathleen Sparr when she was interrogating Samuel Sterns. He then forces Sterns to give him powers similar to that of Hulk's-despite the former's warnings against it. When Sterns offers to turn him back upon doing so, he kicks Sterns over.
  • Upon becoming the Abomination, started a rampage on Harlem and killed several people, including some of his former comrades, just to demonstrate his new god-like strength and challenged any authorities who dared to stop him.
  • During his fight against Hulk, he killed anyone who got in his way with no remorse.
  • Dragged down General Ross' helicopter despite Hulk's attempts to save it and its crew, killing everyone aboard minus Ross and his daughter.
  • Stabbed Hulk in the chest with his exposed elbow bone in an attempt to force him to watch Betty's death at his hands, and later tried to use a heavy chain to kill the Rosses.
  • Unlike the film version, the version within the novelization continuity by Peter David doesn't have other villains, aside from Obadiah Stane and Whiplash, to compete with. Therefore, his actions are heinous by the standards of the novel's versus the MCU's.


  • Only Abomination's book version counts as Pure Evil, while his film version doesn't due to him failing the Heinous Standards of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, in addition to him being shown to be friendly towards Wong in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. However, as Abomination will return in She-Hulk, this may change.
    • His video game counterpart can also never qualify due to failing to Heinous Standards, compared to Glenn Talbot. There's also the fact that he was shown to question Talbot's authority when he mentioned firing missiles in a public area, for the reason being it would endanger the lives of innocents.
  • This version, alongside the 2010 animated version, is the only characterization of Abomination to be Pure Evil.
