Synopsis for "Whys and Wherefores"Edit
Clay Quartermain, Rick Jones and Betty Banner explain the details of what happened to a jury. Meanwhile, SHIELD soldiers find dust where the Hulk's body should be. The few survivors of the gamma rays bomb blast were affected by the radiation (they mutated), and are taken by the Leader.
- Story art: layouts by McFarlane.
- This issue is reprinted in the trade paperback Incredible Hulk Visionaries: Peter David Volume 2
- The SHIELD agent in Clay's flashback scene may or may not be Timothy Dugan; and Rick Jones' lawyer may or may not be Matthew Murdock. Neither character is identified by name, but both are consistent with previous depictions.
