Quote1 I remember the horror of Zzax's hunger! When he sits down to supper, there's nothing left of the human beings on which he feeds! So Zzzax must not feed! This time the Living Dynamo goes hungry! Quote2
-- The Hulk

Synopsis for "Today is the First Day of the Rest of My Life!"Edit

Bruce Banner makes a personal recording of his memoirs reflecting upon the life history of his time as the savage Hulk. Concluding his report, he goes outside to oversee the progress of his latest project, Northwind Observatory. He has hired Stark Industries to construct the observatory and engineer Scott Lang is present as foreman. Lang asks Bruce about what it is like being a hero, but Banner merely wishes to devote his life to science now, not heroism.

The construction crew installs a gamma-powered core into the facility, but Banner realizes too late, that this is the same device that was once used by Soulstar Industries to harness the power of Zzzax. As the couplings are connected, an energy surge sweeps across the cables and Zzzax is reborn.

Bruce transforms into the Hulk and fights him, but his brute strength has little effect against the "living dynamo". Rather, it is the intellect of Bruce Banner that wins the day. Applying his knowledge of science, the Hulk creates a circuit that destabilizes Zzzax's form, sending his atoms back into outer space.

In New York, dozens of people gather about a movie theater to view the premiere of "The Life and Times of the Incredible Hulk". Rick Jones happens to pass the theater and sees the project's director, Bereet, exiting a limousine. Rick chastises Bereet for capitalizing on the Hulk's newfound fame, but Bereet retorts that Rick has been using his guilt over the Hulk for years to define him as a person.
