History

Jarella was the princess of the sub-atomic world of K'ai. Though outwardly primitive this world had remnants of long-forgotten high technology and sorcery. Its people were green-skinned and for the most part blonde haired, but otherwise human.

Contents

Jarella's city was threatened by a number of menaces ranging from attacks by the gigantic wartos (wart hog like beasts larger than elephants) to the armies of the Warlord Visus. The Hulk appeared in K'ai during an attack of the warthos and drove the huge monsters away. When the people came out to greet him, the Hulk was startled. He noticed that they were green-skinned, like him and that they welcomed him rather than running away.

The Hulk was especially taken with the lovely and gentle Jarella. She led him into the city and called on her sorcerers to help the Hulk learn their language. The spell succeeded and also allowed the human personality of Bruce Banner to emerge in the Hulk's body. The Hulk and Jarella fell in love, defeated Visus, and seem destined to live happily ever after. Unfortunately destiny in the form of a supervillain named Psyclop interfered and snatched the Hulk away from K'ai.

Jarella returned several times later. She was unique in that she accepted the Hulk without qualifications. She came to know Bruce Banner's mind in the Hulk's body but was equally accepting of the Hulk personality, or Banner's body. This idyllic love was always tragically thwarted.

Jarella died[1] while trying to save a boy from being crushed under a falling building. The Hulk took Jarella's body to the Gamma Base, but the doctors were unable to revive her. Eventually the Hulk managed to return her body to K'ai for a proper burial.

Trivia

  • Jarella and her world are typical of the sword and planet sub-genre of science fiction. They are particularly reminescent of the Mars novels of Edgar Rice Burroughs.
  • The title of the issue featuring Jarella's debut was The Brute Who Shouted Love At the Heart of the Atom. This is an homage to Ellison's story The Beast Who Shouted Love at the Heart of the World.
