Synopsis for "Titans Two!"Edit
The Fantastic Four and the military are shocked when in attempting to change the Hulk back into Bruce Banner, the Thing would free the Hulk and decide to that he is going to team up with the Hulk due to the inhuman treatment the green goliath has received from the military. When the FF and the military try to stop the two man-monsters from escaping, they easily smash through them.
Breaking into the hanger, the smash all the planes except for the one which they escape in. While in the air, the Thing suggests that they head back to the desert where the Hulk usually hangs out in and asks him where they should go. Hulk dimly recalls as rock formation that he can sit on and think. As they fly by the Gateway Arch in St. Louis Missouri, the Hulk confuses it for his favourite sitting spot and demands that the Thing bring him there. Ben experiences a momentary dizziness and agrees to take them down.
Tracking the Hulk's gamma radiation emissions, with Colonel Sellers about to attack full on Mr. Fantastic manages to convince him into letting the Fantastic Four go out and try to capture the Hulk and their errant teammate first and leave in another ship. When they are in the air, Reed tells the others that Thing's constant proximity to the Hulk for an extended period of time may have an effect on him due to the Hulk's gamma radiation and stresses that they need to get to Ben before it's too late.
They end up in St. Louis they spot the Hulk and Ben on a rooftop. The Hulk is furious that they didn't land directly on the Gateway Arch (being unable to safely land on it escapes the Hulk's understanding) When the Hulk is about to toss a chunk of concrete on the military soldiers that have gathered below, the Thing realizes the folly of allying with the Hulk and smashes the chunk of concrete before the Hulk can throw it. Not understanding what happened, the Hulk jumps down to attack the soldiers directly. Ben decides to try to go down and stop the Hulk when he is struck by yet another dizzy spell. Before anything can happen the Hulk is distracted by Reed Richards who orders the Hulk to stand down and allow them to take him into custody and explains the danger Ben has being in prolonged proximity to the Hulk. This angers the Hulk into attacking them for trying to separate him from his new friend.
This leads to a battle, the Thing and Hulk against the remaining members of the Fantastic Four. While the Human Torch tackles the Thing, he easily knocks out his young comrade sending him flying into Reed. With Reed stunned on the Gateway Arch, he becomes an easy target for the Hulk, but is saved from a thrashing by Sue's invisible force field. Realizing the mistake he has made, Ben begins fighting the Hulk and in their battle realizes he's suddenly changing back into Ben Grimm. He is easily knocked off the Arch and sent falling to the ground. Now completely in human form he is in for a fatal fall until he is saved by the Human Torch.
Witnessing his former friend changed back into human form, the Hulk realizes that the "puny humans" have made him alone again and bounds off to seel solitude elsewhere. In the aftermath of the battle everyone is surprised that Ben has been reverted back to normal due to constant exposure to the Hulk's gamma rays, however Reed grimly asks the question: What will happen to the Fantastic Four?
