Quotes

Mark Roberts: What makes you think that you can capture the Hulk when everybody else has failed?
Le Front: I said nothing about capture.
Jack McGee: Well, what makes you think that we would give you a license to kill the Hulk?
Le Front: This particular issue does not require a license, I want a business agreement. For one million dollars I guarantee results.

The Mercenary
22 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Bill Bixby took a turn directing(His sole contribution) this episode that sees a French mercenary named La Fronte(played by Jed Mills) go the National Register to try and convince Mr. McGee(Jack Colvin) and his editor Mark Roberts(Walter Brooke) to sponsor his attempt to hunt down and kill the Hulk, which they reject since the Hulk is also a man. Undeterred, he then goes to rival tabloid Limelight which agrees to his terms, and La Fronte sets about an elaborate scheme to fake a scientific research project in order to attract the attentions of the elusive Jon Doe... Exciting and well directed outing is an inspired change of pace, and has a fine performance by returning actor Jed Mills.
