Appearing in "Crash and Burn"Edit
Synopsis for "Crash and Burn"Edit
Hulk hides in a plane to New York, but the passengers find out and quietly stat to panic. In the middle of this, Dr Calvin Zabo transforms into Mister Hyde, and explains to the Hulk that he was also hired by the New World Order (alongside Juggernaut and Absorbing Man) to fight the Hulk. However, Mercy reveals that she has supressed the Hulk's conscious mind so that Mister Hyde can more easily kill him, as the Hulk is currently suicidal.
In Egypt doctors tell Marlo that Rick Jones has become paralyzed due to the Hulk. As Marlo listens, she realises that, in her future, her grandfather, Rick's future self, was in a wheelchair, but he ever said why this was.
Back on the plane, Mister Hyde is giving Mercy a lecture about end-of-life decisions, partly motivated by the fact that he defines himself in opposition to the Hulk, and if the Hulk is diminished then he feels it reflects badly on him. Hulk manages to fight through Mercy's telepathy, and crudely attempts to fight off Mister Hyde. As he does this, strange energy flares off the Hulk, causing the plane's instrumentation to spark and the engines to explode.
As Hyde strangles Hulk, Hulk chokes out a confession - he wants to die, but not at the hands of Mister Hyde, who he does not respect. Mercy, acknowledging this, lifts her telepathy. Hulk, now clear-headed, easily throws Mister Hyde through a nearby wall.
As the plane comes closer to the ground, Mister Hyde shouts that he has seen the other side, and the people who wait there will give the Hulk the righteous punishment he feels he deserves for all of the terrible things he has done. Ripping one of the wings off, Mister Hyde declares that the Hulk is his oldest friend.
As the runway comes closer and the plane starts to catch fire, the Hulk crawls along the outside of the plane, arranges himself on the the bottom of the aircraft to soften the landing, despite the heckling of his father's ghost.
The passengers survive, but the plane still crashes, and now the Hulk is loose in New York...
