The Horde of the Humanoids!

Season: 1
Episode Number: 3b
Season Episode Number: 3b
Production Number:


Voices: Paul Soles (Bruce Banner), Max Ferguson (Hulk), Paul Kilgman (General "Thunderbolt" Ross), John Vernon (Major Talbot), Gillie Fenwick (The Leader), Bernard Cowan (Narrator), (Soldier), (Chameleon).

Plot: In another attempt to steal the nuclear absorbatron designed by Bruce Banner, the Leader sends a horde of Humanoids to do the job. Can the Hulk defeat an army of enemies that cannot be hurt?

Review (Warning! Spoilers!): The Chameleon, normally a Spider-Man villain, makes a one scene cameo appearance in this chapter! This chapter is an adaptation of Tales to Astonish #64, but what viewers don't know is that in TTA #62 the Chameleon tries to defeat the Hulk but fails. At the end of that issue, the Chameleon is revealed to be the first agent sent by the Leader to destroy the Hulk, the Humanoids seen in this episode are the second agents. This explains the Chameleon's blink-or-you'll-miss-it cameo.

There is a subplot in this issue about Rick Jones explaining everything about the Hulk and Bruce Banner to the President that was left out of this chapter, probably for time constraints.

Rick told the President everything about the gamma bomb and the Hulk, but the President tells Rick to keep it a secret because it would alarm the public. It's sort of a funny scene, but not necessary.
