Speaking of wastes of time, I hope you don't harbor hopes of ever seeing the baby Gooms again, even with the ending telling us that Hulk would be keeping an eye on them. I mean, let's check the track record.
Talking Jet- Never seen again
Crystal- No mention
Devil Dinosaur- Barely shows up; inconsistently called "Rover"
The Leader- Is he still in the Gamma Base?
It makes me wonder why I should tune in week after week when the stuff that happens week after week doesn't ever matter. As an ongoing story, this episode fails. As a stand alone episode, it fails just as hard. Arkon was a boring villain. It's the "Most Dangerous Game" schtick mixed with the "Cosmic Hunter" schtick. Poorly.
- Get rid of the baby Gooms.
- Make this episode be about Hulk forming a herd with the classic Kirby monsters. Goom, Googam, Zzutak, X, and the Glop. And you know what? That last one would be a nod to continuity, because the Glop was originally called "the Hulk," then was later renamed after the more famous Hulk came along.
- Make Arkon more crafty. Make him smart. Make him someone who could conceivably trap and kill the Hulk. Just make him something worth watching.
- Cut back on the senseless destruction with the others at the base. Seriously, She-Hulk is supposed to be the level-headed one. Why was she using a bazooka to take out a cricket? It's not funny and it's out of character.
Here, I'll leave you with a comic reappearance by Goom as an apology.
