Mark Ruffalo, the actor who plays the Hulk in Marvel's "The Avengers" franchise, is dismissing British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's assessment that he's similar to the giant green superhero. 

Ruffalo in a tweet on Sunday also said that the Hulk works best as part of a team.


"Boris Johnson forgets that the Hulk only fights for the good of the whole," Ruffalo, a vocal climate change advocate, tweeted.

"Mad and strong can also be dense and destructive. The Hulk works best when he is in unison with a team, and is a disaster when he is alone," he added. "Plus...he’s always got Dr. Banner with science and reason."

Johnson, the newly appointed U.K. prime minister, had compared himself to the Hulk during an interview in which he also vowed to take Britain out of the European Union by the end of October. 

"The madder Hulk gets, the stronger Hulk gets. Hulk always escaped, no matter how tightly bound in he seemed to be - and that is the case for this country," Johnson reportedly said

No substantive progress seems to have been made toward negotiating a Brexit deal. 

Since taking the reins, Johnson has moved to suspend Parliament in an effort being challenged in court. 

He has also moved to request a snap election in recent weeks as a response to a bill passed by British lawmakers that sought to block his effort to take the country out of the European Union without a deal, but his push was defeated in the House of Commons.
