Prometheus (Part 1) is episode fifty-eight (and season 4 premiere) of the live-action TV series The Incredible Hulk. It originally aired on November 7, 1980 on CBS.


Dr. David Banner finds a blind girl, named Katie, in the forest. As they become acquainted, a meteor hits the ground nearby. David investigates what had fallen from the sky, and, pained by emanations from the meteor, he metamorphosizes into the Hulk—who then touches the meteor. Later, when he returns to Katie's cabin, he changes back—but only half-way between the creature and Banner. David can talk, but his voice is deep, and Katie can feel the muscles under his torn clothing. But when he once again becomes the Hulk, a military organization code-named "Prometheus" thinks he came from outer space and captures him.



A great story line and an impressive production with sharp special effects and lots of excitement.


  • Some footage from the beginning of this episode, set at the lake in Utah, came from the 1974 movie "The Parallax View"
  • Laurie Prange also guest-starred in "Death in the Family"
  • Prometheus is very similar (albeit scaled down) to organizations in the Marvel Universe such as S.H.I.E.L.D.
