Vikings running back Adrian Peterson dressed up as the Incredible Hulk for a Halloween party this week.

He's the lead photo in a 44-image slideshow put together by FoxSports, with Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder declaring, "You never know how ripped he is -- until I saw him as The Hulk."

Actor Dwayne Johnson, known in wrestling circles as The Rock, also sported the green for Halloween. Like AP, he too dressed up like the Marvel juggernaut.

Which leads us to a morning-after question: Who makes the better Hulk? Adrian or Dwayne?
