Episode details

In this episode:

Mike and Ed talk about yet ANOTHER alien invasion. Are superheroes rotating responsibility? And are we numb to these these existential threats?

Incredible Hulk Vol 1 6 | Marvel Database | Fandom

In this issue:

The Metal Master announces his arrival on Earth by melting metal and explaining how he has come from the planet Astra, many galaxies away. He demands that humanity surrender their planet to him. The US military does not take this threat lying down, and (ineffectively) fight back. The Hulk takes the Metal Master on and finds himself outmatched. He is knocked out, and taken prisoner thereafter by the US military. The Hulk eventually escapes, and with the help of a bunch of teenagers, fools the Metal Master into thinking that his powers have no effect on the Hulk’s weapons (he pretended to have metal weapons and this somehow fooled an alien who had the ability to travel across many galaxies). The Metal Master leaves Earth, in shame.

Assumed before the next episode:

People are wondering whether they should be worried about alien invasions.

This episode takes place:
