Hulk is shot in the head with a bit of a brain missing. the Hulk’s behavior is that more of Savage Hulk as he squares off against Doc Samson. The good Doctor recounts his history of being brainwashed by the Leader and MODOK the downward spiral he was lead down with the ultimate piece where he sacrifices himself to save his friends. This is not the end though as Doc Samson finds himself crawling out of his own grave!
Apparently that means any Gamma induced character cannot simply die. I’m still not sure how much I like this angle but the story itself is so entertaining I can let it go! Moving on, the Hulk tries to “SMASH” Samson all while healing. When the Hulk has his wits about him the two try to check out Betty’s body – only to fond a pool of blood and Betty gone. The two “monsters” begin sharing what the Hulk is doing and really wants. The Hulk lets Samson know that he’s unlike any Hulk personality that he has ever met.
Samson recalls Bruce talking about the “Devil Hulk” back in the day and point blank asks him is he this personality. The Hulk straight up says “yes”. The Hulk goes on telling him that he is there because Bruce couldn’t handle things anymore. He’s also there to destroy the human world.
We leave this issue as they arrive at their destination. We think they are heading out to find Betty but instead we are faced with the now dug up grave of Rick Jones!
