Thanks. The Leader is one of my favorite villains. I always loved how he was a literal brains vs brawns scenario. I also love how his motivations aren't necessarily evil. Megalomaniacal and amoral to be sure, but he's motivated by the incompetence of the world's governments. Dude just wants to rule the world because he KNOWS he can do better. :)

I really enjoy your presentations. The most interesting thing I took away from this was the UNBELIEVABLE armor that even the Hulk couldn’t beat. This predates Iron Man’s Hulkbuster armor. Interesting that Stark Industries never got their hands on the design.

I remember reading the story many years ago when I was a kid and I always had it in my head the humanoids were made of some sponge material, don't know why! I'm 58 going on 59 and I still love these old stories. 👍

I have this comic. The old stories where incredible to read. They where literally all over the place and the art was second to none.

Loved this one about the Leader. Always found him an interesting foe of the Hulk. I like the Hulk issues 115- 117 and 139. All these issues feature the Leader.

The Lethal Leader is such an effective nemesis for The Incredible Hulk, I'm surprised he hasn't appeared in a live-action movie... Yet!... But frankly, I doubt it'll ever be too late!

THE LEADER SHOULD BE PRAISED AND
But in this age of MCU, none cares about these legendary characters

After learning the basics of Quantum Physics and subsequently coming to understand the properties behind Ionizing Radiation, such as Gamma Radiation. It has only contributed to my steady depreciation of all canonical Marvel lore regarding the subject matter of radioactive superpowers.

Its weird because as a kid, the mention of radioactivity is such a throwaway topic line. It didn’t have to make sense to my young and simple mind, back then. But I guess that back when these characters were first conceived, Quantum Physics was a relatively new field of science, and general knowledge about the adverse biological effects caused by Radiation Or Radioactivity was not as widespread, as studied, or as publicized.

But these days, listening to the theme song of that old hulk cartoon just makes me cringe HARD!! They might as well just call it magic, which makes more sense from a fictional standpoint.

Can't watch without hearing Homer singing 'Na na na na na na na na Leader!' to the Adam West Batman theme.

The Leader walks into a bar and the bartender says “Hey, why the long face?”

That robot creation is no joke. Manhandled the hulk and knocked him cold after he couldn’t harm it. Wow
