Briefly skipping ahead, here's a page I love from The Incredible Hulk #383, written by Peter David and pencilled by Dale Keown.

Hulk #383 was published in 1991 and I can still remember where I bought my copy and where I read it. Eleven year old me didn't get the Abomination's joke about Ted Turner (although it made 32 year old me laugh out loud just now) but he loved the last panel, where the Hulk says a cool thing and hits someone.

Mainstream comics of the '90s largely aspired to be about characters saying a cool thing and hitting someone, and having set so low a bar most of them have unsurprisingly not stood the test of time. But I still think this is great.
