Today I'll tell you a little something about Leader. A well known villain in the Marvel comics and he's hidden in a Easter egg in the Incredible Hulk franchise (get it? easter..).

Samuel Stern dropped out of school and started working in a US government research facility. During the job an accident accused during work and he got bombarded by intense gamma radiation. Because of this accident Stern gained an insatiable thirst for knowledge.
As his intelligence expanded so did his brain. Sadly his increased intellectual capacity was not matched by emotional maturity. He hated government corruption and thought it was his job to rule the human race, hence his codename Leader.

Over the years he did many efforts to actually become the world leader without success. Hulk is the hero who's always able to shut his plans down.

In the Incredible Hulk you'll notice that Stern is doctor 'red' who tries to cure Banner from his radiation. When he betrays Banner by helping the abomination a few drips of Banner's blood drip on his head and you can even see his brain grow for a few seconds.

  1. Everything began during the mid 1960's the point at which the Fantastic Four and Spider-man and the X-men (The Uncanny X-Men) were framed from the creative mind of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.
