Bruce Banner Wanted for Treason!

Season: 1
Episode Number: 2b
Season Episode Number: 2b
Production Number:


Voices: Paul Soles (Bruce Banner, Rick Jones), Max Ferguson (Hulk), Peg Dixon (Betty Ross), Paul Kligman (General "Thunderbolt" Ross), Bernard Cowan (Narrator), (Torrak), (Toad Man 1), (Toad Man 2).

Plot: Thinking he has fallen in with the enemy, the General throws Bruce Banner in prison. Suddenly an armada of alien Toad Men surround the Earth.

Review (Warning! Spoilers!): It is pretty remarkable what voice actors can do. The two main characters in this series, Bruce Banner and Rick Jones, are both voiced by Paul Soles, yet if I close my eyes I can still tell who is speaking. Soles went on to be the voice of Spider-Man for the 1967 series and would change his voice depending on if he was Peter Parker or Spider-Man.

The entire cast of The Marvel Super Heroes is about ten or twelve people, all of whom do multiple voices. Paul Soles also provides voices for Happy Hogan in the Iron Man segment, and Peg Dixon is almost every female character in the five segments (and Spider-Man too).

I haven't watched the show enough to identify who is voicing which minor or background character, but I hope to be able to pin a name to every speaking part in The Marvel Super Heroes eventually.

This chapter, along with the other two chapters that make up this episode are taken directly from The Incredible Hulk #2, in which General "Thunderbolt" Ross thinks it's a good idea to drive a tank through his daughter's house in order to save her.
