Synopsis for "Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk (Part V)"Edit
This story is told in five parts.
In part one, Logan is standing in the middle of a bamboo field, completely naked. He hears a voice beckoning him from behind, causing him to turn and reveal a panda standing there chewing on a thistle. As they exchange pleasantries, Logan wonders if he is truly awake. The panda assures him that he is dreaming but this is really happening at the same time. The panda reveals himself to be Logan's spirit animal, which makes Logan break out in laughter, having a hard time believing his spirit animal is something other than a wolverine. After the panda grows tired of Logan calling him cuddly, the two throwing fists at each other. As they fight, the panda explains the Logan that he must not tell them that she was there. A confuse Logan asks the panda who, only to find out he is just a head.
In part two, Nick Fury is keeping Logan's head separated from his body. Fury learns that Logan breathes through his skin, keeping his head alive even when separated from his lungs. They have tried taking the air away from Logan in order to keep him from coming back. Fury reveals all this to Logan in order to coax him into telling him what happened in Tibet. Logan tells Fury, he arrived, found Banner, was thrown through the wall, ripped in half, and then blacked out. Fury pushes Logan, asking about when Betty showed up, which Logan denies ever happening. Logan slips up, admitting he saw the nuclear bomb that was dropped by Fury. Fury needs to know what the Hulk and Betty said to each other, knowing they both survived the attack. While Logan does not reveal the final conversation between the lovers, he thinks back to the nuclear attack.
Part three flashes back to reveal what happened between the Hulk and Betty. Logan remembers Hulk becoming angry for what Betty did to Banner, grabbing Betty and tossing her into the side of a mountain like a javelin. Hulk jumps after his former love, Logan watching, not sure when Betty and Hulk are fighting or screwing, only knowing both simultaneously happening. Logan looks away, finding a nuclear bomb heading right towards them. Betty tells Hulk she loves him, Logan leaving off Hulk's response from his memory.
In part four, Logan wakes up in a jail cell, his hands enclosed in mitts, stopping him from making fists. Logan stops for a second, picking up a scent of someone in his toilet. Forge crawling out of the bowl. Forge is trying to escape, able to do so since he designed the Triskelion's security system. With Forge's intelligence, he helps Logan escape the prison. The duo climb out of a sewer in the Greenwich Village, Logan asking for one more favor from the mutant genius. They end up in one of Forge's hidden labs, where Logan requests an unbreakable collar, a device so strong it resits any form of inertia. After seeing the collar in action, he asks Forge for another one, this one for a female.
In part five, Logan's memory reveals the Hulk's final words to Betty, "Meet me in Casablanca," prompting him to let Forge know where he is heading to next, unknowingly revealing his plans to Nick Fury.
