Issue(s): Hulk #156
In the subsequent battle against Visis and his allies in the Guild of Assassins, he find himself facing his worst fear, which is the Hulk without Banner's mind.
He finds himself losing the fight, and Jarella has her wizards remove the spell that gives him his intelligence so he can fight on equal terms.
Then Pym's serum wears off, and the Hulk grows away.
As the Hulk is growing out of the Microverse, he accidentally kicks Jarella's planet, "sending it careening from orbit".
Assuming the impact of the Hulk's foot didn't send up a dust cloud that choked the planet's atmosphere, we'll have to assume that Jarella's people were killed when they flew either too close or too far away from their sun (nah, i'm kidding, but we will see the effect of the Hulk's kick in the next appearance of the planet).
In this issue, one of Jarella's wizards uses the expression "Gods of K'ai!". K'ai will turn out to be the name of the world.
Meanwhile, Glenn Talbot proposes to Betty Ross, and she accepts.
The Marvel Super Heroes reprint of this issue was one of the earliest Hulk stories i read so i have a soft spot for it. Reading it now, the cutesy pop culture references that Goodwin gives to Bruce don't really work (this is a man who spent years as a reclusive scientist and then as a monster on the run, and he's making references to The Graduate?), and the ending is a little sudden, but it's still a fun story.
Quality Rating: C+
Chronological Placement Considerations: N/A
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: Marvel Super Heroes #104
Yeah, Goodwin's Banner/Hulk sounds more like a wise-cracking Spider-man than a lonely scientist.
