Heroes: The Incredible Hulk
Villains: Tabloid reporter Jack McGee
Diabolical Schemes: Trying to get to the bottom of the mysterious Hulk sighting, Jack McGee ambushed David Banner and lab-mate Elaina accidentally blowing up the lab, killing Elaina and giving Dave an excuse to play dead as he hit the road for 82 episodes.
Coolest Moment(s): I can always enjoy an enraged Hulk tearing a car to pieces. The original transformation scene was enjoyable as was Hulks escape from the science lab.
Worst Moment: Nothing stood out as terrible, but the Hulk versus fisher-family was kind of stupid.
Review in 50 Words or Less: A slow old fashioned build rather than a rock-em sock-em action adventure, this Hulk is more wounded animal than monster, earning more sympathy than fear. Although the drama was decent, this outing was incredibly light on superheroics – but at least this Jade Giant is one worth cheering for.
Interesting Tidbit: The Hulk from this TV series gave me frequent and recurrent nightmares as a child and for my money is much more frightening than the cartoony Hulks that have followed.
