Hulk Guest Appearances Vol. 13 – The Mighty Thor #489 (1995)

Hulk and Thor have battled many times – dating back to the formation of the Avengers – but Thor has bested the jade beast hardly ever.  Hulk is just too strong!  This does not mean Thor is a slouch in any way – it just means that the Hulk is better!  Of course, when the Hulk has to remain in control and can’t let loose on the golden-haired hero… well things don’t go as smoothly for the beast.

At a time when the Hulk’s raging anger turned him back to the 90-pound brilliant weakling the Hulk knew he couldn’t rely on his full anger to bail him out this time.  This is one of the rare times the Hulk is actually totally in the right.  With Thor stuck in “Death City” with Hela and Thor’s friends unable to help it is up to Hulk to make his way to Hel and save goldilocks.

The two tangle for most of the issue with the Hulk restrained from letting loose but Thor unleashing his full affront.  While the Hulk doesn’t quit and Thor being immortal Hela is inclined to take a trade: Thor for Malekith and Kurse (apparently there was a two for one special going on) releasing Thor from the promise he hade to be Hela’s slave.  Of course, the Hulk and Thor decided to team up and take a second before leaving Hel to beat the heck out of one of Balder’s pup.  Nothing like abusing a Hel puppy for real male bonding.
