Mortal Bounds is episode nine of the animated TV series The Incredible Hulk. It originally aired on November 3, 1996 on UPN.


While the military and S.H.I.E.L.D. follow-up on a Hulk sighting, Betty has to go to Chicago. It turns out that the gamma virus is spreading and not even Doctor Donald Blake knows how to stop it. Betty says that only Bruce would know, but cryptically says that one must find Hulk to find him. Not a problem for Donald, as he is also the mighty Thor. The Norse god forces Hulk to Chicago, but then loses track of him. Reverting to normal, Bruce takes another of the infected to the hospital and sets out to help cure the virus – especially when Betty becomes infected herself. Meanwhile, Gargoyle and Abomination – both also infected – are in town and looking for Bruce. It turns out that Gargoyle unintentionally created the virus during an unsuccessful attempt to cure himself of his condition.

Cast (voices)Edit


  • This is the first episode of the series where Abomination is able to talk clearly. In his previous appearance, he was only able to make incoherent sounds.
