Synopsis for "This Monster Unleashed!"Edit
Having fled the army with Betty Ross in his arms, the Hulk bounds through the city, until Betty convinces the Hulk to land at her hotel to get her things. When they land in the back of the hotel, they land in on an attempted robbery. As the Hulk scares off the crook, he begins to change back into Bruce Banner. Taking advantage of this one of the fleeing crooks takes a shot at Bruce and hits his leg.
Meanwhile some spies on a freighter off the coast of New York have just unleashed the Communists' latest weapon against the United States: The Missing Link. A prehistoric man who was unearthed and mutated into a powerful radioactive being as a result of atomic weapons tests. They launch the beast to the mainland where it frees itself and begins wandering the city, trying to make sense of its situation.
Meanwhile, Betty has loaded the injured Banner into her car and as the two are leaving the hotel, they are stopped by the police. Banner begins to change into the Hulk again and jumps out of the car ordering Betty to flee. Fully transformed into the Hulk, Banner smashes through the ground and escapes on the subway. Smashing his way back to the surface, Hulk happens upon the Missing Link and the two engage in a battle through the city. However, the Missing Link's radioactive body causes the Hulk to change back into Banner again, but still with the Hulk's mind. The Missing Link notices the transformation but is uninterested in fighting Banner, and so walks away.
Elsewhere, Rick Jones and Glenn Talbot have commissioned Reed Richards to build a device they hope will stop the Hulk. While in the city streets, the Hulk transforms back into his massive form and resumes his fight against the Missing Link. During the battle, Rick and Glenn arrive just as the Hulk has finished burying the Missing Link in the rubble of a demolished building. Talbot uses the device built by Richards to change the Hulk back into Banner. The timing couldn't be worse as the Missing Link burns its way through the rubble and approaches the three men, bent on destroying them.
- This is the first appearance of Savage Banner (The personality of Hulk in the body of Bruce Banner). This incarnation would later reemerge as the Professor Hulk's transformation when he becomes overly enraged.
- First appearance of the Missing Link. The Missing Link appears next in Incredible Hulk #106. He is not to be confused with Ray Morgan (also called the Missing Link), a member of the Chain Gang.
