Miraculously Bruce had survived; then Betty soon visited him in the hospital and expressed her concern over his condition, but Bruce told her that he was alright. But soon Bruce began to transform into the creature known as the Hulk whenever he became angry.

It was soon revealed that Bruce's father was involved in him changing into the Hulk because of the accident & the radiation passed down from Bruce's father altered Bruce's DNA.
