Hulk #261 (1981)

Hulk goes to Easter Island to meet one of my favorite Marvel villains of all time, The Absorbing Man!

We get a flashback explanation that, after he was dispersed in the ocean at the end of his battle in The Avengers #191, he’s lost his mind a bit.

So much so that he ends his battle with Hulk by absorbing Easter Island, “disproving the adage that no man is an island.”  Nice, ironic twist!
