Another week of cringe inducing Hulk moments – What could it be this week? Sure enough, a scary Hulk storyline that I was not sure how he would prevail.
The Madman had poisoned the Hulk and he was going to die. Every issue was another battle without an answer or, at the very least, a cure. He continued to get weaker and weaker and waste away. By issue #364, the conclusion to Countdown, the Hulk was grotesquely skinny with only hours to live.
Minutes before death the Hulk still had to battle against Madman. If you haven’t read this great piece of Hulk history I won’t ruin the outcome but let’s just say, it’s a nail biter right to the bitter end!
