Glenn Talbot was highly trained in the US Air Force and was a competent military strategist.
Major Glenn Talbot was brought to Desert Base, New Mexico by its commanding officer, General Thunderbolt Ross, for two reasons. The first reason was because Ross wanted Talbot to investigate nuclear physicist Dr. Robert Bruce Banner, due to mysterious disappearances (Ross suspected that Banner was a traitor and had some connection with the monstrous Hulk). The second reason was that Ross hoped that his daughter, Betty, would fall in love with Talbot instead of Dr. Banner (Ross thought Banner was unmanly). Talbot tried to fulfill both of these objects. In fact, he redoubled his efforts once he discovered that Bruce Banner was actually the Hulk. (To learn about the characters above, just click on their highlighted names. Note: Beware of the very revealing outfits on Betty Ross's bio page.)
Eventually, Dr. Banner was able to keep his own persona when he turned into the Hulk; therefore, to Talbot's dismay, Betty agreed to marry Banner. However, at the wedding ceremony, the Leader transformed Banner back into the mindless savage Hulk of old. And after some time of thinking that Bruce was lost forever, Betty eventually agreed to marry Talbot. (To learn about the Leader, click on his name above.)
General Ross and his Hulkbusters pursued the Hulk into the Arctic. However, when there, Ross was taken prisoner by the Gremlin (who then headed a secret Soviet base there). Glenn Talbot volunteered to rescue Ross. However, after Talbot was able to free Ross, he himself was shot during the rescue mission and was captured. Afterward, General Ross returned with a team of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents led by Clay Quartermain into the Soviet Union to rescue Talbot. With assistance from the Hulk, Ross and Quartermain finally succeeded in freeing Talbot. (Click on the highlighted names above to learn about the teams and/or characters.)
Later, Talbot learned that Betty no longer loved him. She was still in love with Bruce Banner. Therefore, Glenn and Betty were soon divorced.
Later is was reavealed that Talbot was alive. However, it was discovered that this Talbot was a fake (an LMD) orchestrated by the Intelligencia. The real Talbot is still assumed to be dead. (Click on the highlighted names above to learn about LMDs and/or the Intelligencia. Also, the fifth picture posted is of the LMD of Talbot.)
