The Gamma Ray Projector was a special type of electro-magnetic wave generator that was adapted for projecting concentrated Gamma Rays. During a military-funded project to research the creation of super soldiers, scientist Bruce Banner underwent a procedure to test a serum that would buffer the effects of harmful radiation on the human body by bombarding himself with gamma rays.
However, the serum turned out to be an attempt at recreating the Super Soldier Serum created by Abraham Erskine, and the resulting combination of the serum and gamma rays transformed Dr. Banner into the destructive green creature known as Hulk, who subsequently destroyed the Gamma Ray Projector in an angered rampage.
- In the comics, Bruce Banner created the Gamma Ray Projector in order to study and produce a large amount of Gamma Radiation. For a period, exposition to the Gamma Ray Projector was the only way to trigger a transformation between Banner and the Hulk
- This could also be based off of what David Banner, portrayed by the late Bill Bixby, used in an attempt to make himself stronger, but instead caused him to become the Hulk, portrayed by Lou Ferrigno, whenever enraged or extremely stressed, in the 1970s TV series, The Incredible Hulk.
