Comparisons with Other Hulk Cartoons
Bruce and Rick head to Los Angeles to meet with Jennifer Walters, Bruce's
cousin. A few months back, Bruce gave her a blood transfusion after an
accidential gas explosion. The transfusion saved her life, but the gamma
energy in Bruce's blood mutates Jennifer as well, turning her into the
She-Hulk! But Jennifer can control her transformations and retains her
intelligence as the She-Hulk. Bruce wants to transfer some of her control
to him, thus gaining her benefits. Meanwhile, Betty is also at Los Angeles
helping Dr. Steve Perry with his smog research. Perry has other plans,
however, as he is secretly the Supreme Hydra. His research leads to the
development of a mist that can solidify and be controlled electronically as
well. Hydra plans to mix the mist with the smog of Los Angeles, immobilizing
the city. Back at the makeshift lab, Bruce's experiment is interrupted when
Rick is captured by the mist during one of Hydra's tests. The experiment
seems to work, however, and Bruce is in control of the Hulk! The Hulk and
She-Hulk find Rick, who has escpaped with Betty. Rick is able to lead them
to Hydra's hideout. It is at this point however, that Bruce loses control
of the Hulk, and fights the She-Hulk. In all the confusion, Betty manages to
tie up the Supreme Hydra and reprogram the mist to evaporate, saving the city.
Jeez, this episode was all over the place. Too much emphasis was placed on
the conflict with Hydra, and not enough was placed on how Bruce dealt with
his newfound control with the Hulk. I mean, Bruce had control for what -
5 minutes? Despite the unevenness, Hulk fans will eat this one up for
She-Hulk's appearance and origin. And it was kind of fun to see the Hulk
talk like a normal human being!
The Supreme Hydra - AKA Dr. Steve Perry, a scientist at Los
Angeles' smog research facility. He is the leader of Hydra,
one of the most powerful crime syndicates in the country.
The Incredible Bruce Banner:
Bruce's medical training pays off big time here, as he is able to give
his cousin an emergency blood transfusion, saving her life. Not to mention
giving her the ability to transform into a gamma-powered bombshell!
