Hulk (2003) (part 3 of 13)
Cut to a standard-issue military base, with the standard-issue generic name of “Desert Base”. Dr. Porno Moustache is talking to the guy in charge of the base, who’s a… well, at first glance he didn’t seem to be wearing any rank insignia, and I was going to rip on that, but then I realized it’s just poorly shot, and all but impossible to tell he’s a captain. An Army captain in charge of a base? I could see this maybe happening in Starfleet, but the Army “captain” is only the third highest rank. Granted, I’m not a military expert, but I have seen a lot of Stargate: SG-1. In any case, the actor looks way too old to be a Captain.
Dr. Porno Moustache (who we learn is named “Banner”, thus building up false hope that the Hulk will have a wicked ‘stache) is telling “Captain Ross” about how he wants to use various animal DNA to strengthen the immune systems of soldiers. Fair enough, I guess. But Ross shoots him down. “Manipulating the immune system is dangerous and stupid,” he says, and informs him that the President’s science flunky has shut down his project and called him a big fat doody-head.
Actually, Ross just says “no human subjects”. So I guess they’re fine with him torturing all the animals he likes indefinitely, just as long as he doesn’t try to find out how a medicine designed for humans works on humans.
