Synopsis for "I Slay by the Stars!"Edit

While stalking through the woods, the Hulk is suddenly stopped by the Sub-Mariner who falls out of the sky. Finding the prince of the sea trapped in a strange energy shield, Hulk travels into New York to seek the aid of Dr. Strange, the only person the brute can think can help him.

Taking Strange back to Namor's body, they cannot find a way to free him, and the Sub-Mariner is soon transported elsewhere. Following him to a cave, they find a being known as Necrodamus, who is waiting for the precise star alignment to sacrifice Namor to the Undying Ones.

Getting in a battle with the Hulk, Namor and Dr. Strange, even when empowered with a new body, Necrodameus fails to sacrifice Namor to his masters, and has his powers revoked and is transported to points unknown. After the battle, Namor explains that he was struck down by the Silver Surfer, prompting Dr. Strange to want to search for the sentinel of the skyways.
