Of the four men listed above, which one of them is the scariest hero in the entire Marvel Universe?

For me, it's Nick Fury. Here's why: Wolverine and Punisher follow very strict moral codes. Unless you're a thug or part of an anti-mutant terrorist cell, they're not coming after you. Hulk is a monster, and monsters are very commonplace in the MU. For example, if you lived in Japan and saw Godzilla, you'd say to your buddy, "Hey, there's Godzilla. Let's go get some sushi." Same thing in Marvel's New York, but replace Godzilla with Hulk and sushi with pizza. Now the reason Fury tops the list is because he'll kill you dead with the full backing of the United Nations, and you'll never see it coming. Wolverine and Punisher can be stealthy, but they're both a little showy; before they kill you, they want you to know they're there. Hulk rampages, so you'll hear him coming miles away, giving you plenty of time to run. Fury, though, he's in and out before his gun stops smoking.

Out of those options, Fury definately.

Frank is old, Wolverine can't take more than three steps without getting his spleen ripped out, and Hulk can be outrun. Fury can kill you and make sure no one ever knew you existed.

At the end of the day, Logan, Fury, and Punisher are just men. Hulk is a beast that you can't shoot, stab, or crush. As for outrunning him, good luck with that. He can leap a mile. If he's after you I guarantee he's the scariest thing you've ever seen.

Maybe it's my libertarian leanings and lack of trust for the government, but I say Fury is the scariest. He's scary in a "real world" way that the others aren't - there is no such thing as a mutant or a nuclear-powered monster, and a vigilante only hunts criminals. But in the real world we have no-knock warrants, Ruby Ridge, The Patriot Act, Waco and Mike Nifong.

Frank is old

Um, Frank Castle fought in Vietnam. Nick Fury fought in World War II.

True, but Frank's been going at a million miles an hour since then. He has no "life", and he's showing his age much more because of it.

Not to mention the whole slowed aging thing Fury has due to the Infinity Formula.

Hulk, for the same reason that the T-rex in Jurassic park is scary. Theres a tiny brain but there is also a giant predatory physical ferocity that no one would stand a chance against. At least Nick probably won't tear your leg off for little or no reason.
