Synopsis for "Whatever Happened to the 3-D Man?"Edit
Under the alias of Bruce Jones, Bruce Banner wanders through Los Alamos, New Mexico until he comes to the Chandler residence. Family patriarch Hal Chandler offers Bruce a room for the night. What Bruce doesn't realize is that Hal recognizes him and secretly places a call to the U.S. Army.
Meanwhile at General Ross' hunting cabin in the Colorado Rockies, Betty Ross, Fred Sloan and Rick Jones discover the wounded body of a centaur. They bring him into the cabin, but moments later a stranger arrives at the door. This man seems to have knowledge of the ill centaur and begins administering medical aid. Suspicious of this cloaked stranger's intentions, Rick Jones secretly broadcasts an S.O.S. to the Teen Brigade. Suddenly, Doc Samson bursts through the wall of the cabin carrying the injured General Ross. Samson knows that this mysterious stranger is actually the Changeling known as Woodgod.
Back in Los Alamos, soldiers respond to Hal Chandler's distress call and converge on the property. The excitement triggers Bruce Banner's metabolism and he transforms into the Hulk. Hal Chandler summons the spirit of his late brother Chuck Chandler - the enigmatic 3-D Man. The Hulk pounds his way through the soldiers while the 3-D Man runs interference to protect the Chandlers from the Hulk's rampage. The Hulk eventually grows frustrated and power-leaps away.
Hal Chandler explains to his family how his "deceased" brother Chuck became the 3-D Man in the 1950s and his essence still resides within Hal's special 3-D glasses.
- The origin of the 3-D Man is recapped in this issue. The 3-D Man appeared last in Marvel Premiere #37. He appears next in Incredible Hulk #252.
- Bruce Banner adopts the alias of Bruce Jones in this issue. Ironically, this is also the name of a Marvel Comics writer who will go on to script future issues of the Incredible Hulk.
