vulnerable, and still survived. Yet in the movie, he hit the ground while in full Hulk form, when his body is least
vulnerable, and he dies......?
"Free Fall" was the parachute ep you're thinking of. He fell out of the plane and another jumper had to follow behind him and hand off a reserve chute to clip to his harness as he had no parachute. About 100' from the ground, a sniper shot off one side of the chute harness. He began to change as he fell. He crashed through the roof of a storage shed and came out as the Hulk.
In "Death of..." he fell a considerably higher distance, but still... you're right. Rather lame.
