History: (Bubble Funnies Mini-Comics#2 (fb) - BTS) - The Leader designed the Humanoid Body suit of armor with the intent of harnessing not only his own mind, but the strength of the incredible Hulk as well.

(Bubble Funnies Mini-Comics#2) - After completing his Humanoid Body, the Leader determined that he must have the Hulk in order to drain the Hulk's raw power into the armor. Luring the Hulk into a trap, the Leader had him gassed then donned the Humanoid Body as both he and the Hulk were hooked to a device designed to sap the Hulk power into the Leader's Humanoid Body. His plan successful, the Leader got up and exclaimed that, with the supercharged Humanoid Body suit, he felt like a living powerhouse. He then stormed his way out of his lab, unaware that Bruce Banner had also regained consciousness. While the Leader relished in the newfound power of the Humanoid Body, Banner switched polarities on the Leader's energy-sapping machine and soon attacked the Leader, draining his power from the Leader's suit back into himself. Transforming back into the Hulk, Banner tore the Humanoid Body into shards and departed, leaving the Leader behind to find something better to think about, such as beauty.
