Sal Buscema Punch #8

So let's get back into some good old fashioned Hulk style punching. So we have this story in Hulk #211 where this old wizard dude (named, I shit you not "Maha Yogi") is holding gladiatorial matches, mostly just to get his jollies.

Mongu tried to stop the Hulk, but well...

The lesson in all this is very clear: Don't punch Bruce Banner.
