Synopsis for "At Last I Will Have My Revenge!"
Having viewed the Hulk's battle with the Sandman, the Mandarin decides that an alliance with the Sandman to get revenge on the Hulk would lead to the successful defeat of the brute. The Hulk meanwhile, having fled the military, once more transforms back into Bruce Banner. While the Mandarin meets with the Sandman and they form an alliance, Banner returns to Gamma Base where he confronts Betty.
However, the military bursts into Betty's room and Banner transforms back into the Hulk. Hulk and Betty however are captured by the Mandarin and Sandman, who take the two to one of the Mandarin's secret bases. There they attempt to keep the Hulk prisoner and use Betty as a hostage to make the Hulk do their bidding.
However the Hulk bursts free and in the ensuing the battle the Mandarin determines that the Sandman is a failure and knocks him into a chemical vat while making his escape. When the Sandman emerges his sand form has been fused into glass. Betty convinces the Hulk not to shatter the Sandman and let him leave. Shortly after, Talbot and General Ross arrive and knock out Hulk with a new weapon and take him prisoner.
