However, the situation becomes heated when Ares begins angering the Hulk. The pair almost come to blows if not for Iron Man and the others holding Ares back. Iron Man talks the Hulk into helping, but when She-Hulk tells the brute that they suspect that Doc Samson is the Red Hulk, the green Hulk leaps off to find him. Iron Man and the others have no other choice but to repair the damage done to save San Francisco instead of following after the Hulk.
Meanwhile, in Monument Valley, the Red Hulk recovers from his return to Earth. As he climbs out of the crater his body created he marvels at the fact that he was able to hold his own against Thor and jump from the Moon to Earth without harming himself. As he climbs out of the hole, he is suddenly grabbed by the green Hulk who is looking to end the battle that his foe started.

As Thor battles it out with the Red Hulk, the green Hulk recovers and discovers that A-Bomb followed after him. The Hulk wants to defeat his opponent himself, but A-Bomb points out that the Red Hulk grows hotter the angrier he gets, pointing out how his feet has been fusing the sand of the desert into glass.
Regardless, the Hulk leaps in and pushes Thor out of the way he can resume his fight. As the two Hulks battle it out, A-Bomb explains to Thor that this is the Hulk's fight and that he must win it for himself. Since the reptilian creature speaks wisely, if not simply, Thor agrees to stand aside and let the Hulk try and best his foe. The Red Hulk manages to get the upper hand but ultimately he becomes too hot and begins to weaken. this gives the green Hulk the edge he needs to defeat his red counterpart in battle. With the Red Hulk fallen, the green shouts that he is the one true Hulk. After witnessing the battle, the Thor recalls that state of the world upon his return, and how the Hulk had recently went to war against the planet.

However, before he can inform his friend of the Red Hulk's identity he is shot in the back by Doc Samson. Samson tells Rick that he can't have him revealing any secrets. Samson and General Ross then approach the Red Hulk to express their dissatisfaction over his inability to kill the Hulk.
