The first season was a smashing success!
24 April 2004 | by (Desert Base, New Mexico) – See all my reviews

The first season of this cartoon series ranks 6th on my all-time list of cartoons and the best of any Hulk cartoon ever made! I've been a fan of the Hulk for over 25 years and know the entire history of the character like my own (hell, I AM THE HULK FOR CHRIST SAKE...RRRRAAAGGHHHH!!!) The first season was so successful and entertaining because it stayed true to the classic Hulk stories of the 60's and 70's. Regardless of the the contemporary tweeking of things (a gamma-reactor instead of a gamma-bomb among a few), the cartoon was just soooo entertaining and true to early Hulk stories! I recommend this to anyone interested in superhero action/tragedy cartoons. Sure the Hulk didn't look and scream as cool as he did in his 80's cartoon along side of Spider-man and his Amazing Friends, but at least Banner's clothes didn't keep coming back. And the appearances of other heroes and rogues were great!! The episode "Mortal Bounds" was a Hulk vs Thor battle for the ages!! This episode was based on Hulk (vol.2) #255! The Hulk vs Wendigo battle was a real treat too in "The wind cries Wendigo" based on Hulk (vol.2) #162). And let's not forget the Hulk slugging it out with Sasquatch (based on Hulk (vol.2) Annual #7! These are the elements that make the Hulk great, raw power unleashed, titanic slugfests, and the despair of Bruce Banner trying to find a cure and peace with his love, Betty Ross. The first season captured what made the Hulk work in comics. Sadly, when the second season came and the She-Hulk became a starring character and all that multiple-personality crap with the gray-Hulk (that ruined the Hulk in the comics)ruined this series. The cartoon flopped and I became the person wandering the world looking for a cure. What do some writers think??? How do they get jobs by going against what makes a cartoon successful??? Thank god the series got stopped and saved me from the depths of despair. I'll just recommend the the first season as the Hulk's finest hour in a cartoon. And if you want the Hulk at his best, then look no further than this. HULK SMASH!!!!
