Comparisons with Other Hulk Cartoons
Betty's nephew Jonah arrives at Gamma Base to demonstrate his
amazing psychic ability. Through dream-like visions, he is able
to predict the future with uncanny ability. His predicts dire
consequences for his aunt, as he sees her piloting a space shuttle
and crashing into a mountain, with the Hulk and a mysterious
madman involved. Waldo, the madman in Jonah's vision, is hired to
sabotage Betty's shuttle. Despite Bruce's attempts to prevent the events in
Jonah's vision, Waldo is able to sneak into the base and sabotage
the shuttle, trapping Bruce in some cargo at the same time. The
Hulk wrecks havok in the shuttle, threatening to crash it. But
Waldo's knockout gas turns the Hulk back into Bruce, where he is
able to eject himself and Betty from the shuttle.
The psychic-predictions-coming-true convention is quite standard,
but this episode uses it effectively, and the pacing is set
accordingly. It was a real nice twist seeing Bruce save the day
for once. He is able to rescue Betty and capture the enemy without
help from the Hulk.
Waldo - This guy could give the Joker a run for the money. He's
a comical-looking man with loud clothes who also happens to be
a master of disguise. He'll get $2,500,000 from spies for sabotaging
the space shuttle launch.
The Incredible Bruce Banner:
Split-second reflexes allow Bruce to save fellow co-worker
Jeff from getting squished by a falling gantry.
