Come on, give Jack a break. He was turning out so many pages– laying the groundwork for the Marvel Universe, — he couldn’t remember everything. The Hulk has 5 toes…. The Thing 4 toes.
Davis should have given The Hulk 5 toes. But I guess we’ll have to let it pass, … and write it off to those crazy Gamma waves and mutations … for the time being.
You just have to admire Jack for giving us so much… the ‘faithful ones’ overlooked those small mistakes.
