Synopsis for "But Tomorrow -- The Sun Shall Die!"Edit

Hulk is captured by the army with tranquilizer bombs and taken to Dr.Corbeau. The scientist uses a device that manipulates the sun's energy, thus neutralizing the gamma rays in Hulk, curing Dr.Banner!

Meanwhile, Jarella is sent to Earth by her wizards in search for her lover, the Hulk. She needs him by her side to defeat the tyrant Lord Visis. Somehow, Corbeau's process and Jarella's appearance caused an adverse effect in the sun, threatening its very existence. Instead of sending the princess back to her microscopic world, the army creates a replicate.

But before they send it, Visis sends Fialan the assassin to kill Jarella. Hulk fights Fialan but an explosion kills Jarella's replicate. The green monster thinks the girl is dead and smashes Fialan. When Jarella appears, the army uses gas to knock the Hulk out, and the princess is sent willingly back to K'ai.

Continuity Notes

  • The appearance of Dum Dum Dugan here is complicated. As revealed in Original Sins #5, Dugan was fatally shot and replaced with a Life Model Decoy. New Avengers Vol 4 #17 went on to explain that Dugan was kept alive and his mind was broadcast into LMD bodies, unbeknownst to anyone but Nick Fury.
  • The flashback from Incredible Hulk #154 occurs between panels 1 & 2 of page 18 of this story. They detail how Jarella is to get back home at the end of this issue thanks to a serum developed by Henry Pym.
  • Although Fialan is apparently killed in this story he turns up alive again in Incredible Hulk Annual #2001, although how he survived is not explained.
  • This story states that Jarella's world is contained within an atom. However, the realms of the Microverse are actually in another dimension. A traveler accesses that dimension through the process of shrinking. Eventually, they shrink to the point where they cross the dimensional threshold. This was first explained in Fantastic Four #282.
