Background Information

As the fictional story goes, Dr. Bruce Banner was exposed to a massive amount of gamma radiation which caused him to transform into a hideous and terrifying green creature known as "The Incredible Hulk," whenever he would experience negative emotions such as fear or anger. He was constantly pursued by General Ross, who was the father of Betty Ross, the love of Bruce's life. As the Hulk, Bruce had no control over his own actions, so he could be at times dangerous, although typically he was quite heroic. Over the years Hulk made several enemies aside from General Ross. Among his worst foes were the Leader and Abomination. Hulk even finds his way into the ranks of the Avengers, as a valued member. In the late '70s, a television version of the character was adapted starring Bill Bixby and Lou Furrigno. Ted Cassidy was the narrator.

Notes

  • Hulk made his first appearance in The Incredible Hulk # 1 (May 1962).[2]
  • It's a bit odd that DC Comics would have allowed Ruby-Spears to show Hulk in this episode, considering the fact that it would promote one of the most popular characters from DC's biggest rival: Marvel Comics.
