Issue(s): Hulk #244
...who is not controlled by good guy Bob O'Bryan (who is no longer confined to a wheelchair), but It's nemesis Doctor Vault.
Hulk literally destroys the living statue and Doctor Vault.
The fact that actor Felix Simon was the one who caused the accident that paralyzed Bob O'Bryan doesn't come out in this story, but Simon is given some rough treatment by the Hulk.
My problem is with the timing. Bob O'Bryan says it's been a year since he first entered the body of the Colossus. Even with Marvel's sliding timescale, only a year having passed since the Astonishing Tales stories from 1974 is a stretch.
Quality Rating: C
Chronological Placement Considerations: The opening page says that his issue occurs "After recent adventures in Defenders, Daredevil, and Iron Man.". The Hulk was also just in LA to see his cousin in She-Hulk #1 and now he's in Long Beach, CA.
Continuity Insert? N

Another disposing of a "disposable character".

"The madder Hulk gets, the stronger he gets" alert! This may or may not have been retconned since then, I'm not sure, but for many years, this was always the ultimate justification for why the Hulk could never lose any kind of straightforward knock-down and drag-out fight.
