Despite turning 36 at the end of July, Brazilian legend Hulk still packs as much power as ever, particularly in his concussive left foot.
Although the nation of Brazil is free of weapons of mass destruction, it still possesses the key technologies needed to produce nuclear weapons — the science is all stored in Hulk's left.
After spending five years in China with Shanghai SIPG (where he made monthly appearances on The18 with goals from 30 yards out), Hulk returned to his homeland in 2021 and played so well — leading Atlético Mineiro to its best domestic season ever — that he earned a spectacular recall to Brazil's national team after last appearing in 2016.
Hulk's playing just as well this year with 17 goals and three assists in 22 appearances across all competitions, and he showcased his frightening form on Saturday with a free kick that cracked against the post during his side's 1-1 draw with Santos in the Brasileirão.
Standing in front of this would mean certain death.

It's not everyday that you see a free kick beat the wall but then come back at it from the other direction.
Here are some recent Hulk efforts that found the back of the net for your viewing pleasure.
