THE INCREDIBLE HULK - #377 1ST APP OF PROFESSOR HULK / ICONIC ISSUE (1991 - VF+)
With the fragments of Bruce Banner's multiple personalities at war with each other, Doc Samson has begun working to cure Banner of this affliction. In a deep hypnotic state with his patient, it looks as though Doc Samson is in a session with Bruce and both of his Hulk personas. However, the gray Hulk wants nothing to do with the green Hulk and vice versa. When the two try to fight, however, they harmlessly pass through each other. Samson tells the two Hulks that they need to work together in order to save the life of their host. The two Hulks find that has been constructed in their session. Suddenly, they hear someone shout out the word monster, getting the attention of Banner and both of the Hulks.
The scene playing out before them is when Bruce was a young boy at Christmas and was found by his father opening his gifts early. However, this time, in the place of Bruce's father Brian Banner, is a massive monstrous creature. Bruce unleashes both the Hulks at this new monster, but it snaps the green Hulk's back and disembowels the gray Hulk. Doc Samson tells Banner to stand up to the monster, but Bruce has slipped into a reclusive state ending this scenario. Doc Samson snaps them out of their hypnotic state as he fears that Bruce might be withdrawing even deeper into himself. His assistant, the Ringmaster of the Circus of Crime, admits that although he has used his hypnotic disks to enthrall an entire audience he has never seen a challenge like this. However, he has agreed to help Samson as a means of making amends for his past life of crime. What happens next?!
