Synopsis for "The Running Man"Edit

A psychiatrist named Doctor Palmer walks into Doc Samson's empty office and listens to a personal recording that was made of Bruce Banner. Banner is confessing his guilt over the many people who had died during the Hulk's most recent savage attacks. Samson steps into the office and chastises Palmer for this breach of conduct. He kicks him out of the office. It is then revealed that the voice on the tape is not Banner's but Samson's himself. He is expressing his own guilt because he feels that his work with Banner is what perpetuated the Hulk's evolution into a savage, animalistic state.
