The Incredible Hulk #82
Bruce ends up in England and comes across a woman named
Tricia, who he instantly takes a liking to. She is wary of
his "dangerous side", however, and parts in a taxi. Bruce
sees the taxi driver abandon the vehicle right before it
blows up, killing Tricia. The driver encounters the Hulk
and has a heart attack. The Hulk sees Tricia's astral form,
and she tells him that she is a sorceress. She wants him
to seek out those responsible for her death, starting with
other sorcerers in her opposition.
The Hulk doesn't have much luck, however, so Tricia tells
Bruce to go to her fiancee about her feelings for him.
Bruce meets him, but when he encounters his son, Tricia
points him out to be her killer. The Hulk emerges and tells
him to run, otherwise he'll tell every sorcerer he has
terrorized that they suffered for his crime. And like a
"terrified rat" he does indeed run away.
I miss these one-shot issues... especially well-told one-shot
issues like this one. It seemed appropriate that the story
would take place overseas then, creating an atmosphere of
mystery and dread (right down to the wax museum). This was
really an exceptionally sad story about unrequited love, the love
between two people who could not be with each other merely
due to timing. Leave it to Peter David to write a love
story with supernatural and superhero elements to it!
