History

(The Hulk in "Smashing Discovery") - As the Hulk ventured into a city, disguising himself with a trenchcoat, he noticed a newspaper mentioning that the President had been kidnapped and that the Hulk was to blame. Angry that he was always being blamed for crimes that he did not commit and feeling that he would be hounded for the kidnapping, the Hulk decided to leave the city. The police quickly noticed the Hulk and chased him, firing their guns at the Hulk, who tripped on a rock and fell through a building's wall. Coincidently, the building happened to house the real kidnapper, who was surprised to see the Hulk. The police immediately arrested the "Presidential Kidnapper" and agreed to let the Hulk go since he had helped them find the kidnapper.

The "Presidential Kidnapper" was never given a name in the story but I felt that he needed to be profiled, if only to get a synopsis of the goofy Hulk See-a-Show slide story out there. I find it hilarious that Hulk just tripped and fell into a building...

Another funny thing of note: The Hulk wore yellow pants in this story instead of his trademark purple pants. Perhaps the yellow pants were part of his trenchcoat disguise...?
