The Hulk accidentally leaps into a small private plane, bringing it down. Feeling remorse, he helps the pilot, stopping his bleeding and putting a splint on his leg.
"Despite the fact that the High Evolutionary was later resurrected, as with Boomerang, I consider TTA #96 to be the conclusion to the High Evolutionary's story (as conceived by Jack Kirby and developed by Stan Lee).
"#95's COVER BLURB: The quote comes from Alfred Edward Housman's poem "The Laws of God":

"To add to the confusion, when Stan and Jack were in the Army, the Air Force/Air Corps was, like Artillery and Infantry, a branch within the Army. It was not a separate service until 1947.

"Talbot's inner monologue: "The Hulk is innocent! In another few seconds, we might have finished him--and the humanoid--with the proton gun! If I had just received this message a minute later--I'd have been rid of Banner--the man…"

Hey Richard, if you've got the first Tales of Suspense Atlast Masterworks, with the corrected table of contents, how about photocopying it for me and mailing it to me?

If you do, could you mail it to: Kirk Groeneveld, 105 Second St., Athens, OH 45701
