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.


Due to bad weather, their plane crashes in the wooded mountains. 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, a raging forest fire and hungry wolves stand between them and safety.



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.
