Appearing in "The Incredible Hulk"
- Forest Rangers
- Beaver Mountain
- Passing Cloud's Flute
Synopsis for "The Incredible Hulk"
The Hulk has decided to remain with the Native American known as Passing Cloud and his companion the Susquatch. However, their tranquility quickly ends when Beaver Mountain is invaded by both the Forest Rangers and a team of hunters who are up following up on erroneous reports of a Bigfoot sighting.
The Susquatch panicks and tries to flee the scene but is quickly gunned down by the hunters. Seeing his long time friend dead, Passing Cloud begins to mourn his passing. Meanwhile, the Hulk is furious that his new friend has been murdered and lashes into the hunters. Although he desires to kill them, some vestage of Bruce Banner's mind prevents the Hulk from doing so and he opts to knock them out instead. Spotting the Forest Rangers helicopter in the sky, the Hulk tosses a massive ball of snow that damages the rear rotor of the chopper. The pilots manage to bail out just moments before the helicopter crashes into Passing Cloud's cabin, destroying it in a firey explosion.
In the aftermath of the battle, the Hulk goes looking for Passing Cloud and discovers, to his dismay, that the elderly Native American passed away while mourning for the Susquatch. Picking up the medicine man's flute, the Hulk decides that it is useless now and crushes it in his massive hand, before stomping off into the forest.

He has inspired sufficient fear in the human populace and is confident that they will see the Space Gods as their enemies just as much as the Deviants.
