Synopsis for "The Ω Hulk: Chapter Twelve"
With his life coming to an end, Doc Green and Bruce Banner spend time communicating with one another via a white board. The two vent their mutual frustrations for each other. However, the two agree that they must work together now and decide to go and find their cousin, Jennifer Walters. This has brought them to Brooklyn where they find She-Hulk waiting for Doc Green with an army of SHIELD soldiers, the Invisible Woman, as well as Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, and the Vision of the Avengers. They have come to stop Doc Green from depowering the She-Hulk as he has done with all the other gamma mutates on Earth. However, Doc Green tells them that he only wishes to talk to his cousin. She-Hulk agrees to talk, but Captain America and the others are not willing to leave the Hulk to his own devices. Doc Green responds by giving them to the count of ten before things get violent, however before a fight can start, She-Hulk steps in and reiterates that she will talk with her cousin. To smooth things over, Doc Green offers to leave the syringe of his gamma cure outside. It is snatched out of his hand by the Invisible Woman as soon as it is in sight. With the threat to Jen's powers out of the way, the two Hulks go into a nearby building to talk. The first thing she asks him is where Lyra is. Doc Green tells her that it is complicated and when he tells her what happened she reacts angrily.
Thinking that She-Hulk is under attack, the other heroes come crashing into the building and attack Doc Green. The Doc doesn't fight back, telling the Avengers that he deserved that but insists that he has come to confess his sins. She-Hulk demands to know if Lyra is alive or dead. However, Doc Green cannot give her any definite answer but believes that she might still be alive. He explains that Lyra's banishment to another reality was caused by the machinations of his artificial intelligence. Doc Green explains that there is one thing the A.I. wants: his body, but refuses to give it up. Unfortunately, time is not something he has a lot of, he explains that the Extremis that has made him the smartest man on the planet is breaking down and eventually Doc Green will revert back to the savage Hulk. He then tells Jennifer that she is lucky, as she is the only person who had become a Hulk and not have their life ruined by it. When she asks if an Extremis supplement might help retain his intelligence. Doc Green tells her that he has thought of this, but he is afraid that in keeping his intelligence he will become an even greater monster something driven only by hate. He tells her of his fears of turning into the Maestro, and that part of his reasoning for depowering Hulks was to eliminate potential rivals to future plans of global conquest.
That's why he brought the antidote this day, not to use on Jennifer, but on himself when he finally does return to being a savage. Although the effects will be temporary, it will give the Avengers the time they need to deal with him as they may. With the task of finding Lyra and stopping Gammon still a priority, Doc Green says farewell to his cousin. He then tells her when she sees Bruce Banner again, to tell him that he had cried. As he walks off, Doc Green begins researching Gammon's recent activities when he is suddenly interrupted by Betty Ross. He apologizes for depowering her, saying that he had made mistakes in the past. Betty says that she also needs to apologize, but to Bruce Banner. Doc Green is exasperated but relents. Bruce returns and as Betty apologizes for having him shot Banner goes over the data he and Doc Green have collected on Gammon. When Betty realizes that he hasn't been paying attention to her apology she begins to laugh and the two finally kiss.
