The villain's plan turns out to be a bit loopy. But there's some cool action and an ending that is both downbeat and ironic. No reference to the Watergate scandal in this one, but Richard Nixon appears for one panel!! 6/10

  The first issue was tolerable...this one is not.

  Cause the best way to protest is to destroy a capital of an island/continent...

  "If I don't stop them from using nukes, then a whole lot of people will get hurt! I better destroy a city full of people so that that doesn't happen." - super-villain logic.
I think Betty would have been okay with whichever way that roof dive went.

  That cover is a blatant lie.

  Getting tired of Conway's captions (he scripted this issue based on Thomas's plotting.) Almost everybody else writing at this time makes quite poetic prose in their works and all Conway can muster lately boils down to, "Here is a scene. This is the next scene. Wasn't that exciting?"

  Dang, Betty. Still got some Harpy personality left in you? I know you wanted the Hulk, but getting Bruce over that ledge was pretty cold.

Thing is, that was probably the most notable thing that happened in the issue. The rest probably would've belonged in a story published ten years prior.

2 stars.

  See, this is why Melbourne is better than Sydney.

  Was the story entertaining? No.

Did Hulk smash: Yes.

Was Betty Ross on a rescue mission in a dress? Yes.

Is Armbruster EVEN MORE annoying that Thunderbolt Ross? Yes.

Was there a satisfying ending to the story? No.

Two stars.
