Synopsis for "The Incredible Hulk"

The Hulk smashes himself out of a titanium cell and discovers that he is trapped on the island of Doctor Scarabeus who plans to learn the secrets of the Hulk's strength. The brute lashes out at Scarabeus, his humanoid creatures Felix and Fangor, as well as his armed guards. Outnumbered, the Hulk manages to get away when he knocks over Scarabeus' helicopter and uses the distraction to cover his escape. In the aftermath of the battle, Scarabeus orders his minions to find the Hulk. When his daughter Tisha comes out and demands to know what's going on, the Doctor tells her it is none of her concern.

However, Felix tells the girl what her father is doing. Tisha then pleads to her father to give up such a mad quest, but he is still embittered by the scientific communities claim that his Anti-Men experiments are unethical and wants to show the world who its master is by duplicating the Hulk's vast strength in his creations. Tisha's pleas to her father to give up on his obsession are ignored as he plots to capture the Hulk by nightfall.

Synopsis for "The Black Knight"

The Goblins who captured Moondog bring them to their leader Groglin to feast upon on. However, Moondog still has a lot of fight in him when he is freed from the sack he is contained in. However, the Goblins overpower him and are about to chop his head off when they are stopped by Cormac, one of the Dark Walkers. Cormac points out that Moondog is an ideal hostage to lure out Vortigen so that he can do what Mordred has failed to do.

Back at the Elven Village, the Black Knight and his allies recover from the battle with the Goblins. However, with a great deal of the Elves now dead, Vortigen wonders if their victory was worth it. With Otherworld beckoning them, Captain Britain notices that Moondog is missing. Vortigen suggests that the Captain and the Black Knight go on to Otherworld while he searches for Moondog. However, the Black Knight refuses to venture further without searching for his ally. Allowing for this, Vortigen decides to head to the North Lands and seek out the Mountain Ash trees needed to make a new Staff of Rowan so he can renew his magical powers.

Captain Britain decides that he will go on to Otherworld on his own and the three allies depart after they all pledge their allegiance to Merlyn. Before Captain Britain leaves, Vortigen explains that the dark mystery in his mind is of great importance to Merlyn and that is why the Black Knight was sent out to seek him. Soon the three men depart venturing on three very different quests.

Synopsis for "Ant-Man"

Reprint of the 1st story from
Tales to Astonish #43
(originally printed as The Astonishing Ant-Man Verses the Mad Master of Time!)

Our story begins with Ant-Man rushing back to his lab. Along the way he crosses paths with a young boy delivering a telegram and is almost flattened by it. After addressing the public, Ant-Man makes his exit. The boy delivers his telegram to Professor Elias Weems. Opening the envelope, Weems finds that the telegram is from his grandson Tommy who is coming to visit him on vacation. Excited that his grandson is coming to visit Weems hopes to show him the many things he is working at at his job at Modern Scientific Research Company. However, as fate would have it, a week later, Weems is let go because company policy does not allow anybody to work for them past age sixty-five.

Angered by the fact of being fired only because of his age, Weems plans revenge against society for being so cruel and constructs a device that speeds up the aging process. Completing the device, he tests it out on a tree, a baby elephant, and a young woman before finding that it is perfect.

Calling himself the "Time Master", Weems sends a letter to the police demanding control of the entire city or else he will prematurely age the entire population. Learning of this through his spy ants, Ant-Man manages to track down and confront Weems at his home. Weems uses his aging gun on Ant-Man and attempts to trap him in a flower pot. Weems then leaves to start aging the entire city, not suspecting that Ant-Man can free himself by growing back to his normal height.

Tracking Weems down, he finds the scientist on a rooftop aging the people in the crowd gathering below him. Ant-Man rushes to stop Weems, but Weems stops himself when he realizes that his grandson Tommy is in the crowd and has been prematurely aged as well. Attempting to reverse the process, Weems fumbles and drops the device off the side of the building, but it is caught by Ant-Man's army of ants. Ant-Man then instructs somebody in the crowd to use the device to change everybody back to normal, and Weems surrenders to the police.

Pleading to the judge, Ant-Man and the owner of Modern Scientific Research Company convince any charges to be waived, and Weems is given his job back. Weems' first order of business is to show his grandson around the lab where he works.

Synopsis for "The Eternals"

Reprint of the 1st story from
Eternals #7
(originally printed as The Fourth Host)

More members of the Celestial Forth Host descend upon the City of the Gods in the Andes Mountains. Gammenon the Gatherer offers a capsule to Ajak who honorably accepts it. Inside the capsule are the discorporated atoms of the three S.H.I.E.L.D. agents that Arishem banished only moments ago. Ajak and Daniel Damian use the technology found within the temple to re-assemble the men's atoms. The S.H.I.E.L.D. agents immediately go on the offensive, but their weapons are useless here. Ajak explains the history and purpose of the Celestial Host and tells them that they are now trapped inside the temple with them with no chance of escape.

The agents refuse to remain captive however. One of them, Stevenson, punches Ajak in the jaw and makes a run for it. He gets as far as the outside steps where he encounters Tefral the Surveyor. He throws a grenade at him, but the Celestial catches it where it explodes harmlessly in his hand. As punishment for their transgressions, the S.H.I.E.L.D's agents' bodies are discorporated once again and placed inside the capsule.

Meanwhile high above the planet, the leader of the Fourth Host, the One Above All, sits silently in his God-Ship. He sends an electronic signal to Earth in the form of a veritable ladder of fire. The message is decoded and received by the other members of the Fourth Host who depart the mountains for unknown locales across the Earth. They are preparing for Alpha Day.

Reprint of the 1st story from

(originally printed as What If the Hulk Had The Brain of Bruce Banner?)

Bruce Banner, Reed Richards and Charles Xavier constructed an improved version of Cerebro called the Psychotron which merged them physically and mentally into one being, X-Man. They were forced to use it (as it only worked once before blowing up), to defend the world from Galactus. They won the battle, at the expense of all of their super powers, and inadvertently turning Thing into a mindless monster, much like the Hulk.
