Synopsis for "The Incredible Hulk"

Having escaped the clutches of Doctor Scarabeus, the Hulk tries to find a way off his island. Suddenly, the mad scientist and his humanoid animal minions track down the Hulk and attempt to contain him. The Hulk flees into the mountains where there is adequate cover. Doctor Scarabeus orders his men to retreat and that they will return on foot.

Left at peace, the Hulk calms down sufficiently enough to revert back to Bruce Banner. When Banner comes down from the mountain he is quickly captured by Scarabeus and his forces. Not knowing the connection between Banner and the Hulk, Scarabus buys Banner's story that he is a scientist who fell overboard of a ship. Scarabus orders Banner captured and he is taken back to the scientist's facility. There he is left in the care of Scarabeus' daughter Tisha. Sending Fangor to get Banner some food, Tisha explains that her father is mad and tries to help Banner escape. However they run into her father and his minions. When Banner tries to run for it they pursue them. However, when Scarabus and his men round the corner, they find no trace of the Banner, only the Hulk.

Cormac orders the Elf to reveal Vortigen's secrets, but the diminutive warrior refuses to reveal anything. When the Goblin known as Groglin suggests that they kill Moondog. Cormac refuses to do so, reiterating that they can use the Elf to set a trap for Vortigen.

Soon, Vortigen spots a strange path and decides to follow it. He comes across some standing stones and is shocked to see Moondog tied to one of them. Suddenly, stones begin to block his path. When Vortigen tries to leap over the stones, he slams into a mystical barrier that is fencing him in. This is when Cormac reveals himself, and knowing that his foe is weakened without his mystical staff, the evil mystic draws two swords and challenges his old foe to a duel to the death.

Synopsis for "The Astonishing Ant-Man Verses the Mad Master of Time!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Tales to Astonish #43.

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 Fourth Host"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Eternals #7.

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.

Synopsis for "What If the Hulk Had Always Had Bruce Banner's Brain?"

This story is a reprint of the comic
What If? #2.

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.

Notes

Continuity Notes

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

  • Dum Dum Dugan's appearance here is complicated as he's not in the flesh. He was mortally wounded decades ago as revealed in Original Sins #5. He has since been operating in sophisticated LMD bodies as revealed in New Avengers Vol 4 #17.
  • In this story, the police officer refers to Hong Kong as a "British Colony". As this story takes place in the modern age this should be considered a topical reference relative to the date of publication per the Sliding Timescale of Earth-616. Especially since Hong Kong became an autonomous region under the protection of China in 1997.
