  • Provides a chilling story for true Hulk fans

  • Hulk-out 2: Being handcuffed in an office by the psycho (who turns out to be the chief of police), and then having an angry mob break through the door and through the makeshift barricade David tries to make (while still handcuffed), and then having the mob proceed to throw him against the wall and beat the living daylights out of him
