THE INCREDIBLE HULK #4-6 (1963)

IMG_6842

Steve Ditko takes over the art chores and gives Hulk a big ass gun.  From here, no more Hulk until he appears in The Avengers (1964) and then he gets some appearances in the Tales To Astonish anthology series.  Issue #5 is the first appearance of Tyrannus, who will wage a long war with Mole Man in the future for the control of Earth’s underground.

He enslaves Hulk and the Moloids.

He’ll do this again, many times, in future comics.

Because Hulk always escapes.

Oh, and also he dresses like a Yeti.  Yeah, issue #5 is good.  But #4 and 5…Aren’t.

He does start talking in the third person, though.

Creators: Lee/Ditko/Kirby
First appearances:  None of significance.
Grade: C+ (issue #5), D (issues #4 and 6)
