Review: One of the more popular characters from Hulkís comic run makes his debut here, joining him is one of the most popular Hulk villains in The Absorbing Man. Unfortunately, neither character gets the treatment they deserve, and are basically too annoying to be considered cool.

Mr. Fixit felt a little too corny to me. He was insanely rushed and lacked logic. The episode implies that Mr. Fixit and She Hulk dressed in her bimbo outfit had essentially been running the town for monthsÖ only weíre all aware that Hulk changes back into Banner when he calms down. Just how did he manage to stay angry all that time? I know searching for logic in this season is a pretty silly thing to do, but man, I canít help but shake my head sometimes. This show used to be so damn good.

The new villain of the piece, The Absorbing Man, is actually one of the more popular rouges from Hulkís gallery. Frankly, Iím surprised he didnít turn up in season one, given his popularity. Unfortunately, he gets a crap translation. His design is utterly terrible, and his character is nothing short of a bitch to Miss Allure. Poor olí Absorbing Man. Heís not done too good with translations, has he?

Not the worst by far, but still pretty terrible.
