"And in our next issue, we try something new with the Hulk" - Stan. "Nooooooooooo!" - Every Reader up to now. Stan: Stiuck to your formula for now. This series was finding itself, until you changed some stuff around again and made the Hulk into another Iron Man (a brilliant scientist trapped in his powerful form because of a projectile stuck in his body). The story moves quite good up to this point, making the best of what has been set up, and having the army actually starting to figure out the Banner/Hulk-connection. In fact, Rick is just about to spill the beans, thinking Banner to be dead by now. Next to the announcement, the only bad part of the story was...this transport ray fueled by plot conveniance.

The Sub-Mariner story stays epic in scope and kinda shakespearian in the characterization...though not necessarily in a good way. The way Lady Dorma is portrayed is...headache-inducing. And of course Krang loves her...but, well, at least he has brains to take her seventeenth rejection as a sign and banish her. Of course, why the people of Atlantis love Dorma is beyond me...

Overall, great issue, and from the three anthology-comics this takes up the fight with Strange Tales, leaving ToS quite some way behind it. Both stories still have problems, but remain very enjoyable and show a lot of promise for the future.
