As it so happens, his enemies, the Martians, are now attacking present New York City. Things then get officially weird when people are rioting in the streets, various objects across time start appearing, including the appearance of Galactus.

When they come to, they see the Hulk, the one who sent Kang to get them, and is glad that they're here.
