Voices: Paul Soles (Bruce Banner), Max Ferguson (Hulk), Paul Kligman (General "Thunderbolt" Ross), John Vernon (Major Talbot), Bernard Cowan (Narrator), (Tank Driver), (Kanda Khan), (Bandit), (Hakun Gantu).
Plot: The Hulk escapes his captors and travels a great distance to be alone, but once he calms down and turns back into Bruce Banner, he finds himself kidnapped by bandits!
Review (Warning! Spoilers!): More Hulk smashing action, this time from Tales to Astonish #67, is thrown our way as we get to see the Hulk take one a whole army!
There is not too much to this story, Hulk smashes his way to freedom, reverts to Banner, gets kidnapped again. The constant kidnapping is a familiar story in these early Hulk adventures. Since the Hulk's main character trait is his brute strength, Stan Lee often put Banner in situations that he couldn't escape from in order to make the Hulk necessary.
The pacing of this chapter is really good. While some tend to rush things in order to reach the next cliffhanger by the six minute mark, while others stretch things out due to not enough content.
But this episode took it's time telling the story, which is good because we want to see Hulk smash as much as he can, and didn't waste anytime moving on to the next dilemma.
