Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Incredible Hulk #121 Synopsis by Michael Ord
The not so jolly green giant (Hulk) is involved in his usual battle shenanigans against General Thunderbolt Ross and his forces whilst we learn of a runaway convict who at some time in the past, fell into a radiactive swamp whilst fleeing the authorities.

The runaway emerges as a silent bog-spawned giant monstrosity, possessing awesome strength and operating partly by instinct and partly by memory.

The "Glob" as he is so termed, abducts Betty Ross, and intends on carrying her back to the swamps with him. Fortunately for Ms.Ross, the Hulk is nearby to come to the rescue.

The two man-monsters fight, though Hulk is hampered by an injured leg. Eventually, the swamp creature returns to the bogs and allows the Hulk to rescue Betty, though typically, her father and his army come to the conclusion that the Hulk was her abductor.

The Hulk laments the fact that had he met the creature under different circumstances, they may even have become friends.
