Archie's Generic Celebrities Month, Day 25: Not Actually the Incredible Hulk

Dilton Doiley: student; scientist; nerd: searching for a way to tap into the acceptance of his teenage peers. Then: an accidental overdose of grape radiation alters his body chemistry! Now when Dilton Doiley grows angry or outraged, a startling metamorphosis occurs! The creature is driven by rage and wanted for a pantsing he didn't commit. Dilton Doiley is believed to be a nerd, and he must let the world think that he is a nerd, until he can find a way to control the Incredible Bulk that dwells within him!



Panels from "Return of the Bulk!" in Archie & Friends #63 (January 2003), script by Mike Pellowski (?), pencils and inks by Rex Lindsey (?)

Of course, by the time Hollywood got hold of the Incredible Bulk story, they just had to meddle with it and change a few things about the character, which just enraged the fanboy populace.
