Synopsis for "Who is the Hulk?"Edit

In Russia, Leonard Samson is studying footprints in the ground made by men the size of the Hulk and Abomination. She-Hulk acts out with Samson how the Hulk-like creature eventually bested the Abomination by leveling the nearby village. Afterward, the Hulk shot and killed the Abomination with a giant gun. Iron Man, Maria Hill, and "General Ross" from SHIELD are also there examining the Abomination's corpse.

They examine the footprints of the Hulk again and see that he is giving off so much radiation that it is scorching the Earth, creating glass. Leonard suggests exhuming the remains when the supposedly dead Winter Guard arrives. They fight until Ross finds a survivor of the battle. It is a little boy who keeps murmuring a word in Russian. "Red."

In Alaska, Rick Jones awakens to find that he is wearing nothing but pants and sees a fire off in the distance. Meanwhile, Ross and Samson drive to a Gamma Base in Nevada. The guards there are automatons, as no living person could stay there. They arrive at the deepest level of the base only to confirm their worst fears, Bruce Banner is locked up safely in his cage reading a book. Noticing that he has visitors, Banner tells Ross and Samson that he was wondering when they were going to come and ask him for help.

Continuity Notes

  • The man who appears to be General Ross is actually a Life Model Decoy, as explained in Hulk Vol 2 #23 when the identity of the Red Hulk is revealed.
