Excerpts

BELOW: Bruce Banner (The Hulk) believes that General Thunderbolt Ross is "obsessed" with hunting the Hulk: Bruce Banner (The Hulk) recalls yet another time that General Thunderbolt Ross searched for the Hulk: "I'm certain that others were searching as well... But General Ross has played this game many, many times. I hide... He seeks. He's obsessed with it. And, I think, he's obsessed with me."

BELOW: Spinach was simply greedy: The "brilliant mixologist" known only as "Spinach" successfully captured She-Hulk and the Hulk, created a nasal spray that temporarily imbues people with super strength, and staged a battle with the Hulk -- all out of greed. He desired publicity which he thought would help popularize his product. After the Hulk defeated him and Thunderbolt Ross captured him, "Spinach" said: "Be sure to tell everyone what you saw here. This green stuff is going to make me a lot of green... once I get back on my feet."
