Ultimate Hulk is a much more lusty and vulgar character than the original. Again, Freddie Prinze, Jr.'s face is always hidden.

Ultimates #5 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro
As they take a helicopter in search of their greenskinned foe, the Ultimates survey the massive destruction already done to Manhattan by the Hulk. As Hulk tears through the restaurant in search of Betty and Freddie, Giant Man arrives and tries to grab him but Hulk leaps onto Hank's face knocking him to the ground and tries to tear his head off. Giant Man is saved only by the appearance of Iron Man who swoops down and seizes Hulk and carries him off, smashing him into Grand Central Station. Hulk rips apart Iron Man's armor, intending to eat Tony (!) when a thought scrambler slows Hulk down long enough for Iron Man to empty all his power reserves in a blast that sends Hulk into the street. Wasp lures Hulk into following her (by exposing her breasts) to where Captain America drops on him with a tank. The tank doesn't last long but Cap manages to subdue the Hulk long enough to inject him with the antidote-almost. The only sample of the antidote destroyed, Fury plans to use a nuclear weapon when Thor arrives to engage the Hulk; the Thunder God almost beats down the Hulk but Greenskin gets stronger from his anger and flattens Thor, tosses away Cap, and pursues the helicopter carrying Betty to safety. Hulk reaches the helicopter, unaware he's carrying an extra passenger himself-the Wasp, who has entered his ear and applies her sting to the part of the brain that calms Hulk down. He plunges to Earth and transforms back into Banner. An angry Captain America brutally kicks Banner in the face and takes him into custody.
