The Incredible Hulk

Mission: Incredible - S2-E8

Stupidity: When Bruce, Betty and She-Hulk are infiltrating Sea-Base, they do so by docking their submarine on top and sneaking in. For what is supposed to be a top secret S.H.I.E.L.D. base, they surprisingly have no security measures - such as cameras and sensors - to detect when an outside force is in the vicinity.

Mind Over Anti-Matter - S2-E3

Stupidity: When Dark Hulk throws the tank at the approaching jeeps, the drivers for all three jeeps slam on their brakes in order to bail out of the vehicles in the nick of time when they could have just turned the jeeps to avoid being hit.

Darkness and Light: Part 1 - S1-E11

Stupidity: When the Leader's spy is reporting to him, he removes his human mask for the benefit of the audience. This is a pretty foolish thing to do considering he's in a top secret military base, where he can be seen by anyone that happens to be in the area, or potentially by security cameras.

Darkness and Light: Part 1 - S1-E11

Stupidity: When Doc Samson emerges from the cave system and into the laboratory grounds, he says to the others "All clear" without even looking behind him to see if anyone is there, which leads to them being seen by Gabe Jones.

The Return of the Beast: Part 1 - S1-E1

Trivia: When we see the flashback of the accident that caused Bruce Banner to become the Hulk, at first we see the Hulk colored gray and then slowly turn green. This is a reference to the comics, in which the Hulk was gray in his original appearance.

More trivia for The Incredible Hulk

Answer: The Hulk is a giant brute who smashes everything in his path when he is angry. In Ang Lee's "Hulk," General Ross, played by Sam Elliot, explains it to his daughter.

Answer: Because he feels the Hulk is a threat to all life on Earth, and particularly his daughter's close relationship with Bruce Banner puts her at risk when Hulk enters the equation.

Why does Ross think the hulk is a threat?

Because the Hulk is nearly mindless and goes on destructive rampages with high risk of collateral damage.

If that's the case, what's the problem with the way general Ross judges the hulk?

It's nuanced. Ross is correct to recognize the potential danger the Hulk presents, but he's also too stubborn to realise that he usually exacerbates the Hulk's rampages by trying to engage him in combat instead of trying to calm him down.
