Abomination BTS Hulk # 1?

Post by intp » Wed Aug 12, 2015 12:14 am

I have a question about the Abomination's entry. Abomination is listed as being "BTS" in H 1 and H@ 17-FB (presumably referring to the FB in the annual which occurred during H 1). But for the life of me, I can't remember any story establishing that Blonsky was BTS in those early stories. Can anyone enlighten me as to where this was established? I've read nearly every Abomination appearance ever and most (though not all) of the Hulk's appearances and I can't recall that ever being mentioned or suggested.

Anyone have any insight into this one? I've re-read H3 25, TTA 90/2-91/2, the Wikipedia page, and several online sources, and still haven't the slightest clue as to what the basis is for concluding that Abomination (who would still have been Emil Blonsky) was BTS in H 1. I haven't had a chance yet to check the flashback in H@ 17, but IIRC, that just involved a soldier reminiscing to his son that he's the guy who came up with the original "Hulk" name way back in H 1, as shown in the FB. In H 1, Igor Drenkov is the only identified spy, and the first time Blonsky is ever vaguely referred to (that I know of) is in TTA 90/2. The flashback in H3 25 is merely of Blonsky being with his wife Nadia in the U.S.S.R., before even leaving that country.

Just a thought: Rather than concentrating on Abomination flashbacks, I would suggest looking into flashbacks to the Hulk's origin.
