"The Power of Doctor Banner!"— Let me just briefly summarise the pulse-pounding events of this issue for you, True Believers. What happens is:

  • The Hulk's new-found friend, his fellow anti-Communist from last issue, is swiftly disposed of (like, in panel five);
  • The Hulk changes back to Bruce Banner;
  • Cutaways to some monologues from General Ross and the Leader;
  • Bruce Banner becomes the Hulk again.

And... that's it. You can make a lot of criticisms of Silver Age comics, but you usually can't say that nothing happened in the stories. Sturdy Steve's plots were treading water at this point, and his pencil art this issue is not exactly improved by the attenuating inks of Vince Colletta either. EH, I say.
