"The Missile and the Monster!" — Wherever he goes, whatever he does, the Hulk can't seem to escape Soviets trying to foul up US weapons tests. This issue's saboteur turns out to be last issue's sinister Hawaiian shirt man, who has hidden a frowning robot in the trunk of Rick Jones's car in hopes of disrupting the takeoff of the Orion missile. Well, there's no such thing as a free launch, after all. John Buscema gives the Hulk an odd slab-like torso here, but his Hulk's head — floppy-haired, no lips, unibrow — is closer to what would end up on kids' lunch boxes than any one else's thus far. OKAY.
