Raw Power is episode three of the animated TV series The Incredible Hulk. It originally aired on September 22, 1996 on UPN.


On the way to his hated job at a nuclear facility, Mitch McCutcheon witnesses Hulk fending off military robots. Later at his job, Mitch encounters Hulk again and sees him revert to Bruce. Realizing that the facility's equipment can possibly cure him, Bruce asks Mitch for his help. Mitch gets Bruce inside and helps prepare the experiment, but his superiors find out and interrupt things. Bruce isn't cured, but even worse, Mitch is accidentally transformed into Zzzax. Unbalanced, Zzzax intends to create havoc and only Hulk can stop him. Meanwhile, S.H.I.E.L.D. muscles in on General Ross's Hulk pursuit – sending in Agent Gabriel Jones. Betty has called in some help of her own – Doctor Samson.
