The Death of the Incredible Hulk (1990):  This is the third and last "Incredible Hulk" made-for-TV movie after the TV series was cancelled.  Dr. David Bruce Banner is finally able to cure himself from being the Hulk.  However, a spy sabotages his laboratory before he can make the fix that he's been so desperately wanting for 12 years.  The spy is a very beautiful woman with whom Banner falls in love with.  She is a spy against her will because her sister is being held hostage.  Banner and the spy flee to rebuild their lives, but the enemy agents are never too far behind.  Basic premise:  the movie ends with the Hulk's death.  There was going to be a fourth film made where the Hulk was resurrected, but due to Bill (Banner) Bixby's death in 1993 it never came to be.  It's a great movie, but I was kind of expecting another superhero appearance.  What?  No She-Hulk?  Even though the Hulk gets killed and it's a weird way to end the show, we all suspect that he will be brought back.  However, he never was, so for all intents and purposes "The Incredible Hulk" remains dead.  The major motion-picture "Hulk" from 2003 is a completely different show, based on the same comic book character, but almost totally exclusive from the TV show/movies.
