HULK (1962) (#1-6, #102-474, #600-635)(INCREDIBLE)(MV) #168 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Hulk (1962) #168
First appearance and origin of the Harpy. "The Hate of the Harpy!" is written by Steve Englehart and drawn by Herb Trimpe and Jack Abel. Betty Ross' relationship with the Hulk is much like that of Fay Wray and King Kong or the Beauty and the Beast. The brutish Hulk in his child-like innocence draws the compassion of Betty Ross, who feels sorry for the beast whose situation is not of his own making. But now that Betty's husband, Major Glenn Talbot, is apparently dead, the poor woman has been committed to a mental institution and can't muster sympathy for anyone, least of all the green-skinned goliath she blames for Glenn's death.

When the Hulk comes looking for Betty, he encounters the usual resistance from the police and the Army. In the confusion of the resulting fight, Betty slips away in an apparent trance. Her destination is soon clear. She's been drawn to Modok, the cybernetic villain created by A.I.M. (Advanced Idea Mechanics), who has a desperate need to experiment with gamma-ray radiation. With Betty as his subject, Modok turns her into an incredible horrific creature he calls the Harpy. With a mad-on against the Hulk, the Harpy quickly seeks out old Jade Jaws and lays into him but good! Can the Hulk withstand the savagery of a gamma-powered grieving widow?
