    It was a great finale, some unexpected twists. Loved it!

    Sterns and Banner being related, didn't see that one coming at all!

That was a surprise to me as well. However, it does remind me of a story from several decades ago in which someone (possibly Doc Samson) discovered that everyone who had survived being exposed to gamma radiation was related to each other by some unknown common ancestor. I wonder if Al Ewing had that story in mind.

Anyway, we should now have enough information to fill in five generations of the Sterns family tree.

Generation #1: Mr. and Mrs. Sterns, the parents of Samuel Sterns and Reverend Robert Sterns.

Generation #2: Samuel Sterns (husband of Anne and father of Philip) and Reverend Robert Sterns (estranged husband of Beatrice Banner and unacknowledged father of Bruce Banner)

Generation #3: Philip Sterns (son of Samuel and Anne) and Bruce Banner (son of Beatrice Banner and Robert Sterns)

Generation #4: Mr. Sterns (son of Philip and father of Philip and Samuel) and Brian Banner, Elaine Ann Banner Walters and Susan Banner-Drake (children of Bruce Banner and parents of Robert Bruce Banner and Jennifer Susan Walters)

Generation #5: Dr. Philip "Phil" Sterns and Samuel "Sam" Sterns (sons of unnamed Sterns father), Dr. Robert Bruce Banner (son of Brian Banner and Rebecca Banner), and Jennifer Susan Walters (daughter of Elaine Ann Banner Walters and William Morris Walters).

This would make the Leader and the Hulk third cousins, right?
