Synopsis for "Prisoner of the Monster"
The Sonar Crystallizer, a device capable of reducing anything to dust, is due to be tested at Gamma Base, and a villain known as the Spymaster sets his sights on it. Meanwhile, Rio tells Rick about an ancient curse that befell a prince of the Yucatan in South America. The prince turned into a green beast similar to the Hulk whenever he became angry. Eventually, a tribe magician used a secret potion to permanently cure the prince, and the potion was enshrined in a temple. Rick tells Banner about this legend, and Banner immediately travels to the Yucatan along with him. As Banner explores Yucatan with Rick, Spymaster infiltrates Gamma Base as a phoney General. In the Yucatan jungle, Banner's party comes under attack by the ancient tribe they were looking for, and Banner becomes the Hulk, who drives the warriors off. Bruce and Rick eventually locate the ancient temple, and after evading several booby-traps, Banner finds and drinks the potion, curing himself of the Hulk. He and Rick are then caught by the tribesmen and are taken to their Queen, who tells Banner that the potion can only work once: if he becomes the Hulk again, it will be forever. The tribe frees Banner and Rick, who return to Gamma Base in time to complete tests on the Crystallizer. Afterwards, Spymaster kidnaps Betty and General Ross, as well as stealing the Crystallizer. Discovering that the only thing immune to the Sonar Crystallizer is the Hulk, Banner sacrifices his freedom and once more subjects himself to an overdose of Gamma radiation in order to rescue his love.
