  1 star for the Leader trying to impress his new friend!

Deja Vu - Once again Mickey Demeo is killing Kirby's art!

Threat Level - Last issue Gen. Ross was going to drop nuclear bombs on the Hulk. Now he's bringing in....flamethrowers!!!

Being Human - I love all the different Humanoids that the Leader is creating. From the egg drop soup of the Mindless Ones types. To thinking of taking on Atlantis with his Aquanoids!

'Nuff Said - "Nuts! I don't want any part of this crummy world!"-Hulk

  If the Leader's synthetic humanoids are just plastic, why do they have to be hatched from eggs? And why do they need nutrients? Do they excrete waste from the nutrient formula? Why else would they need to wear diapers? Why would the leader create a nutrient formula that leads to inefficient waste in the first place?

So many questions.

  I'm glad Stan doesn't even attempt to describe the science of the electro-waves. A lot of earlier issues would be a lot more plausible if the science was likewise left unexplained.

  @GroovyGolem: I think you just uncovered the secret of the toy novelty rubber dog poop industry.

  • That's my line "The scientific principle involved in what you are seeing is too complicated to explain in details on these pages..."(Narrator) So don't! Yet this time, the little explanation they give is not as bad as most other times. It is even pretty close to the theory behind Star Trek's teleportation!

  • Missiles and bombs seem to be General Ross's miracle solution to everything. That man is freakin' dangerous!

  • On second panel page 5, the device looks like a mixer for some giant cake!

  • The concept of Humanoids hatching from eggs is totally ridiculous!

  • The Leader already plans on taking over Atlantis. Now that could be an interesting story! And then he can invade Mole Man's underground world. Imagine the epic fight between the Humanoids and the Subterraneans.

  • I was not impressed by this one either! I don't like the trend this series is taking. 2 stars.

  I don't like that they changed the Leader to a wanting-to-rule-the-world - type of Villain in these last Issues. He was more interesting when his overall objective was not so clear (and so ...flat) and we only knew that he wanted to know more about the Hulk and Gamma-Radiation with it...
