Issue Review
   November 18, 2016
The main character here is Jim Wilson, since the Hulk is held captive for most of the story by the army. We get to see him (almost comically) sneak onto the base and later evade a clumsy tail and get snatched up by Hydra.
He then works with them to free the Hulk.
A "plan" that relies on him implausibly being free reign to wander the base unimpeded.
All this silliness leads to a battle between the Hulk and the minions of Hydra.

  He was punching them directly. Knowing what we now know about how strong the Hulk is coupled with the fact that those Hydra agents are just regular people you can probably guess that he killed quite a few of them. Getting even a jab from the Hulk is probably the same as getting hit by a large truck localized to your head.

They just couldn't outright state that Hydra agents were dying right and left back then.

  It was standard not to mention the innocent bystanders that had to be fatalities during one of Hulk's rampages. I think it finally started being mentioned in the 90s.

  this story was ok....just monthly filler, really.

  Man, I really don't like this Wilson kid. He's even worse than Rick Jones.

  I didn't buy that the Hulk was faking being knocked out. No way he'd willingly get shackled up. The wannabe Rick Jones is even worse than the original. Story was decent at least.

  Oh God. We really, really didn't need a Rick Jones substitute. Why the hell does Marvel think this type of character is so important to the Hulk? I also doubt that the Hulk would be that poorly watched so that Jim could just walk over and free him like that. Terrible writing.

  Art in this issue is all over the map. Betty is way off model, and perspective is messed up in a bunch of pages. Top panel of page 3 Hulk looks like he's a midget, but even he's not small enough to fit into the flying machine on page 7. I judge it to be about 4 feet tall, comparing it to the two doorways in the background. But luckily urban-Rick Jones has shrunk down to about 2 feet in the same panel.

  2 stars for Hydra being mad with power!!!

Splash - The army has the Hulk wearing metal depends!!!

In Plain Sight - Like no one else would notice a white guy in a military uniform wandering around a ghetto...

Perks - This is why Hydra is a top tier evil organization. They have a movie theater on the airship!!!

  I love that Jim thinks the Hulk doesn't want to hurt anyone, even though he threatened to kill Jim just last issue.

  This wasn't one of the better stories in this arc so far. Roy seems to be writing Jim as the token black guy to increase racial diversity in comics, but all he's doing is portraying him as some idiot who's easy to manipulate. As other commenters have implied, it's almost worse than a Rick Jones.

As for the story itself, manipulation seems to be a common theme here. Somebody's always trying to use some form of trickery to get the Hulk to do their bidding, and it always backfires. This time it was Hydra's turn to get schooled. C'mon people, even Irving Forbush knows better than to pull the wool over Hulk's eyes! Or Jim's. Whomever.

2 stars. Nothing on what's happened to Banner last issue. Maybe it's because they want to draw this current status quo out a little bit. But it'd be nice to advance that plot thread a little more than they did here.

  For a globe-spanning organization, HYDRA seems to have a severe lack of resources. Only one ship to capture and brainwash the Hulk?

  It looks like Hydrox didn't do their homework. Geeze, you'd think by now everyone would just leave Hulk alone! Hulk just wants to be alone!

Three stars.

  I didn't really like this issue - Hydra seemed shoe-horned into an interesting story with Jim Wilson.

I will say, I like the direction this book is going, where the book is less about the Hulk, and more about everyone else trying to deal with the problem that is the hulk.

  With the last handful of issues, a vast improvement in Trimpe's artwork, both in detail and layouts/style. Liking Jim Wilson a lot more than Rick Jones (c'mon, guys! What's with the hate?), and I did like his crack about the Klan and a green shirt sale! The Hydra comeback also worked well for me. OK, so a few flaws in the story, but I really didn't think it was as bad as everyone is judging it. In fact, I thought it above average due to the reasons stated above.
