Doc Samson: A Year’s Worth of Hulk 1st Appearances – Week 48

The good doctor has had a complicated history with our Jade Giant.  When we were introduced to Samson he was convinced he could help Banner rid himself of his curse.  When he was successful he then was consumed with the idea of becoming a powerful beast like the Hulk.  He dosed himself with gamma and sure enough became a powerful foe/ally for the Hulk over the years.  No matter what, no matter how many battles the Hulk and Doc had it was always apparent that the green haired doctor had the Hulk’s best interests at heart.  That is, until Loeb got his hands and his hack pen on the character.  The unusual and unexplained duality of Samson was never explained but in the end Samson sacrificed himself to help his friend.
