David Barr was one of the many aliases used by scientist David Bruce Banner in the 1977-1982 live-action superhero fantasy series, The Incredible Hulk. David Banner wanted the world to continue believing that he was actually dead - a possible murder victim of his own alter ego, the Hulk. In order to function with anonymity, as well as avoiding the attention of a snooping investigative reporter named Jack McGee, Banner adopted a different alias in nearly every town he journeyed to. Almost all of his identities maintained his actual first name, with a spelling variation of his last name. The David Barr identity was used in "The First".
