Marvel Age Hulk #1 Review by (February 17, 2010)
All-ages Hulk title done in a simpler cartoonier style, different from the MARVEL ADVENTURES look.


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Marvel Age Hulk #1 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro
Bruce Banner arrives at a small western town and stops in at a diner for a meal. There he is recognized by a young scientist, Dr. Tim Collins, who has attended Banner’s lectures. When Bruce strongly insists that Tim has the wrong man, the young scientist leaves in embarrassment, forgetting his experiment notes. Bruce soon arrives at Tim’s home to return the papers and must confess he really is Dr. Banner and points out some defects in Tim’s experiments for accelerating crop growth. The two men collaborate on correcting the errors and the next morning, before Bruce wakes up, Tim tests the growth formula on a wheat patch. When Bruce awakens, they discover that the wheat has grown tremendously—but so have the grasshoppers sitting on it. Bruce and Tim track the giant bugs to the nearby school, which is closed but some kids are playing in the playground. The scientists arrive to rescue the kids, with Bruce attracting the bugs to him so Tim can get the kids into his pickup. The insects’ attack causes Bruce to become the Hulk and he wipes out the bugs and leaps away. Later, Tim and the kids find Bruce some ways away. Bruce explains his dual identity and realizes he must now move along because his secret is out. As Bruce heads off down the road, Tim returns home to find that Bruce has left him some notes to lead him on the right track in his experiments.
