Mystery Man (Part 2) is episode twenty-eight of the live-action TV series The Incredible Hulk. It originally aired on March 9, 1979 on CBS.


With the pilot dead, and Jack McGee unable to walk, it is up to David Banner to drag them both to safety without exposing his own identity. Unfortunately, cold weather, hungry wolves and a raging forest fire stand between them and safety.


  • Bill Bixby as David Banner
  • Jack Colvin as Jack McGee
  • Lou Ferrigno as The Hulk
  • Howard Witt as Chief Bob Cory
  • Michael Payne as Hal Pollock
  • Bonnie Johns as Helen Cory
  • Cari Anne Warder as Tammy Cory
  • Barbara Tarbuck as 3rd Nurse
  • Laura Lizer Sommers as Betty


This is one of the most significant episodes of the series because it reveals why Jack McGee is so obsessed with capturing the creature.

The climactic scene when John Doe (Banner) is trying to save McGee when he is trapped under a burning tree. McGee witnesses the metamorphosis into the Hulk for the first time, thus revealing why the Hulk can move from place to place without being seen.

It also marks a point in the series when McGee becomes more sympathetic towards the Hulk when he learns that the creature's instinct is to save life.
