Back From the Dead!

Season: 1
Episode Number: 4c
Season Episode Number: 4c
Production Number:


Voices: Paul Soles (Bruce Banner), Max Ferguson (Hulk), Bernard Cowan (Narrator), Peg Dixon (Betty Ross), Paul Kligman (General "Thunderbolt" Ross), John Vernon (Major Talbot), (Guard).

Plot: Bruce Banner has been arrested for treason and the only way to clear his name would be to reveal the truth about the Hulk!

Review (Warning! Spoilers!): We finish off this episode with a chapter taken from Tales to Astonish #68 with art by Jack Kirby. In this chapter Bruce finally gets a break as he takes the credit for saving the life of Major Glenn Talbot. It is nice to have little moments like this that make Bruce a little bit happy since his life has been turned upside down by the Hulk.

It's good for a writer to make their character happy every now and again because it makes a bigger impact when they take it all away again. This is how Spider-Man has been written since the beginning.

The ending of this chapter is completely made up, using recycled footage from previous episodes. I guess they wanted to finish up this story rather than continuing on as it does in the comics.
