Synopsis for "Incredible Hulk"

The Hulk is sleeping in the forest when he is suddenly approached by two humanoid animals calling themselves Felix and Fangor. Seeking out the Hulk for their master, Dr. Scarabeus, the creatures tie a rope to the Hulk and pull him away in a helicopter. However, the Hulk wakes up and tries to climb up and fight his two kidnappers. To stop this, they shoot the Hulk with a tranquilizer dart, putting the brute to sleep. The pair place the Hulk in a titanium lined cell until they arrive at the master's remote island on the Pacific. The tranquilizers caused the Hulk to change back into Bruce Banner, who is panicked with finding himself trapped in a room with no ventilation. Free from his bonds, Banner begins banging on the door of his cell begging to be let out.

Soon the helicopter lands on the island of Dr. Scarabeus who wishes to unlock the secret of the Hulk's great strength. As he approaches the cell containing his subject, Banner's panic triggers another transformation into the Hulk. The Hulk is so furious he manages to rip open the cell, much to the surprise of Dr. Scarabus.

Synopsis for "Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D."

Dum Dum Dugan, the Countess, and Nasar al Din are prisoners of Sept's field commander Abdul Kazir has them suspended in a globe over an open flame. The only way Fury can free them is by removing a globe from the pedestal in front of him, but it is most certainly a trap. Instead of removing it by hand, Fury decides to fire his particle-beam gun at it instead, foiling Kazir's attempts to eliminate him. With the ball imprisoning his friends about to land in the open flames, Fury then blasts the gas main cutting off the flames so when his friends fall, they are unharmed. While the heroes celebrate their victory, Abdul is contacted by his master "The One" who informs him that should he fail to eliminate Nick Fury, he will forfeit his own life.

As Kazir orders his men to regroup and attack the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, Nick Fury and his allies make their escape. Finding an exit hatch, Fury decides to take advantage of the design flaw of his particle-beam that Gaffer warned him about. Closing the barrel off, he turns the device on and tells the others to move it as if it is powered on for more than fifteen seconds it will explode. As they rush up the ladder, the particle-beam gun explodes causing the complex to flood with sand. Inside, Abdul Kazir's final words are curses upon Nick Fury and promises of revenge in Hell.

Although this Sept facility is now rendered harmless, Fury and his comrades are still stuck out in the middle of the desert with no means of getting back on their own.

(originally printed as Prisoner of the Slave World!)

Dropping in on a fellow scientist, Henry Pym finds that his colleague's door is locked. Fearing that his friend has fallen ill, he shrinks down in size and dons his Ant-Man guise and investigates. He finds his friend's lab mysteriously empty, with no trace of anybody.

Returning back home, in his civilian identity, Pym hears reports of scientists in various fields that have recently gone missing. Figuring that he may potentially be next on the list, Pym decides to be at the ready in case Ant-Man should have to spring into action.

A few days later, Pym is visited by a window washer trying to drum up extra business by offering to wash windows free for the week. Accepting the offer, he invites the window washer in. However, when he turns his back on the hired hand, Pym finds himself doused with a chemical that paralyzes him.

Transported to another dimension, Pym finds out that the window washer is working for an extra-dimensional tyrant named Kulla. Kulla has plotted to use Earth's scientists knowledge of atomic energy in order to construct a death ray to use against his enemies. Pym, realizing becoming Ant-Man is the only way to free his fellow scientists rebels and soon finds himself subdued and locked in a dungeon.

Left by himself, Pym then uses his shrinking gas and becomes Ant-Man. He soon realizes that he can command the local insect life with his helmet and decides to use them in his plan to stop Kulla.

Freeing the scientists and fending off Kulla's guards with his human sized strength, Ant-Man is doused in paralyzing fluid again. Kulla storms in, attempting to smash Ant-Man with a hammer, but while immobilized Ant-Man commands the local insects to use Kulla's own weapon against him, striking the villain dead in one shot.

Just then, the freedom fighters of Kulla's dimension storm his base and capture the guards. With the scientists free, Ant-Man returns to his cell and resumes his identity of Henry Pym until he is freed. Deciding to keep the window washer as their prisoner until he reforms, the freedom fighters send all the scientists back to their home dimension.

Synopsis for "The Eternals"

Reprint of the 1st story from
Eternals #6
(originally printed as Gods and Men at City College!)

Thena and Makkari continue to find the Deviants. They surround them in a ring of fire then Thena hurls an anti-gravity spear that forces all of those trapped by the flames to rise into the air. They set their craft down and confront Kro directly. Kro tells Thena that he has no reason to continue his attack on New York. He has inspired sufficient fear in the human populace and is confident that they will see the Space Gods as their enemies just as much as the Deviants. Thena is incredulous of Kro's strategy and believes that humanity will rise above their innate fear of "space devils". Kro proposes a truce and Thena accepts.

Meanwhile aboard a Deviant submersible, Sersi antagonizes her captors while Margo looks on in shock. After tormenting the Deviants with her powers of transformation, she forces them to retrieve the torpedo tube containing the unconscious body of Ikaris. Once the cannister is brought on board the craft, the Brain Mine that kept him inert is removed.

They return to New York and reunite with Thena, Makkari and Kro. Ikaris cannot believe that Thena agreed to a truce with the Deviants. Margo comes up with the idea of introducing them to an anthropologist named Sam Holden. After learning about the history of the Eternals and the Deviants, Holden decides to hold a Q&A session at City College. Kro and the other Eternals attend the function and provide a public display of their abilities.

Meanwhile, S.H.I.E.L.D. sends a team of researchers to survey the sealed area in the Andes Mountains surrounding the City of the Space Gods. The Celestial known as Gammenon suddenly appears before them and seemingly kills the men.
