90 Pound Weakling (Part II) – A Year’s Worth of Cringe Worthy Hulk Moments: Week 40

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!

  1. The first comic with Keown as penciler….what a relief to get rid of Purves…I know you liked Purves Ratchet..sorry…Incredible Hulk #347 – 366 were torture for me even with Grey Hulk fighting Pineapple thing along the ride.

    The Madman countdown was a nice storyline…..especially the fight against the Abomination in Part 1….The Madman himself I would have liked to see get a genuine beatdown by the Hulk after Hulk was Merged…..

    At the conclusion the Hulk’s inability to penetrate his own hide with the antidote was clever….right down to the wire.
