Five hours later at the Baxter Building, the Thing is exercising while also talking to his accountant about his investments. After his call Ben takes a shower and heads into the living room. There he learns from Reed and Sue that the Child Welfare Office is trying to take Franklin and Valeria away because they feel that the Baxter Building isn't safe for them. Ben understandably gets upset, but Reed diverts the subject to Bruce Banner. Reed explains the situation in Nevada and how a rampaging Hulk has been seen rampaging about five hours away from Las Vegas.

The agent on site shows them the damage the Hulk caused to an abandoned air field and how they believe that Banner has reverted to an earlier savage version of the Hulk. The reason they have requested for the Thing is because his long history of being the only one who can go toe-to-toe with the Hulk. They also requested the Torch to act as transportation. Although Ben finds this hilarious to begin with, he's less than happy about being carried across the desert in Johnny's arms.
