Helicopter Parent: A Year of Cringe-Worthy Hulk Moments – Week 2

Let’s have a little fun and discuss some of the more graphic, violent, sad, or just plain awkward moments that have plastered the Hulk history.  Be it a passing meeting between spouses of a gruesome scene that nobody saw coming – this year I’ll have you squirming in your seat!

From the gross to the… well different kind of gross.  There is a fine line between brilliance and madness.  Of course, there are people who go WAY over that line and cross into nutball city without a plan for a return trip.  That person happens to be the woman named Jackie.  A woman whose latest obsession has landed on Rick Jones.


Rick was introduced to us as a boy, with an aversion to people thinking him chicken, with no family as his own.  This made him the perfect ally and, to an extent, sidekick to the Incredible Hulk!  Years of hanging out with super-heroes landed Rick a gig as the host of his very own talk show – and from there he met Jackie.  A normal looking woman who, by all accounts, seemed to be on the up and up, and claimed to be Rick’s mother.  Of course, that wasn’t true… and the truth was even more horrifying.


Rick was drugged, then dragged to a basement and chained to the wall… next to the rotting corpses of Jackie’s other “sons”.  Marlo and Betty tried to help – but that got Marlo stabbed to death and Betty choked out (thankfully Betty persevered and knocked that bitch out with a fireplace poker).  Beautifully illustrated by Dale Keown it was at one of the Jade Giant’s height of popularity when the stories had a twist on almost every page!
