Hulket Plan

What's the best way to deal with the Hulk? Fire him off to another planet, of course! This actually happened in the Marvel Universe, and this animated film is a 80 minute version of an entire plot arc.

Hulk lands on the wrong planet, and is taken captive and forced to fight in a gladiatorial arena, because what else happens on alien planets but gladiatorial fights? After beating up some people, including not the Silver Surfer because of licensing restrictions Beta Ray Bill, he and his posse get away, but then get caught up more in the petty machinations of the Red King, leading to a big fight. Because, well, this is the Hulk.

According to this synopsis of the arc, this looks to cover all the main bases, so that's one more set of comics I don't need to catch up on. Animation is standard for Marvel animated films, and is decent enough. Voices... were none I recognised.

Nothing that exciting, just an easy way to catch up with some continuity.
