At the beginning of the film, a quick glimpse of Bruce's known associates appears. One of the names shown is that of Rick Jones. In the Incredible Hulk comic, Rick Jones was an orphan who drove out onto the weapons testing site on a dare. Rick was unaware that Bruce's gamma bomb was being tested that day but was saved by Bruce just as the bomb went off. This sacrifice is what caused Bruce to become the Hulk. Rick, wracked by guilt for what happened, has stayed by Bruce's side from then on. See more »

Three cheers for Marvel for finally realizing that no one knows their material better then themselves. May they never sell another beloved superhero to a lesser being again.
For the second time this summer Marvel has given us a superhero movie that just plain rocks. With the exact right amount of humour, character development and great action sequences, the Incredible Hulk is up there with Iron Man as one of my favourite films to be released so far in the summer movie season. While I didn't like it quite as much as Iron Man (Robert Downey WAS Tony Stark. Whereas something still doesn't sit right about Edward Norton as Bruce...) it was nevertheless a great, faithful adaptation of the comic books. Plus the cameo appearances by both Stan Lee and Robert Downey Jr where terrific! Possibly my favourite Stan Lee cameo yet.
There isn't really much else to say besides, go see it for yourselves. If you're a fan of the comics, or just of fun popcorn films you'll definitely enjoy this one.
