Nuclear scientist Bruce Banner found his life turned completey upside down when he was supervising a test of his new gamma bomb. Seeing teenager Rick Jones loitering in the test site, Banner goes out to remove him. However contrary to his orders, his assistant Igor, who is actually a Soviet spy, allowed the bomb to detonate while Banner was exposed just as he put Rick in safety. Miraculously he somehow survives, but he has a new problem. Now whenever he undergoes stress, he transforms into the massive monster, the Hulk. Now he must fight either General "Thunderbolt" Ross of the US Air Force who obssessedly hunts the creatures, or villians like the Leader, a mad scientist whose own exposure to gamma radiation made him a malevolent genius.

Did You Know?
The character referred to as the Gorgon in the televised version of the Hulk's origin story is actually the original Gargoyle. For some reason Stan Lee changed the name for this series. The name change could not have had anything to do with the second Gargoyle, as he had not been created yet - he was introduced into the Marvel Universe only in 1981. See more
