Synopsis for "..And S.H.I.E.L.D. Shall Follow!"

Following his battle with the Collector, the Hulk finds himself in Citrusville, Florida where the population approach the creature with interest. This causes the Hulk to become angry and demand that people leave him alone. His presence in the town attracts the attention of Gamma Base's S.H.I.E.L.D. liaison Clay Quartermain who convinces Nick Fury to allow him to use S.H.I.E.L.D. weapons to capture the Hulk before he can get away again.

Flying out to Florida, the opening salvo is made when Doc Samson jumps from a S.H.I.E.L.D. chopper and attacks the Hulk directly. As the Hulk is distracted, the helicopters use neuro-clamps to bind the Hulk. However before they can pump anesthetic into the Hulk's system, the brute breaks free crashing into the nearby swamp. Samson rejoins the others and they continue on to capture the Hulk.

Back at Gamma Base, Betty Talbot visits with her catatonic husband Glenn. Betty is wracked with guilt over his marital transgressions with Doc Samson while Glenn has been in his current conditions and asks her oblivious husband to forgive him.

Back in Florida, the S.H.I.E.L.D. unit sent to capture the Hulk decide to try another tactic on the Hulk, a paralysis gas. However, the Hulk's titanic leaps keep them from getting close enough to use it. Doc Samson decides to go against orders and catch up with the Hulk one more time in order to keep him in one spot so that they can use the gas on the green giant.

As Samson battles the Hulk, Quartermain and his S.H.I.E.L.D. unit get up close with the gas ready. Unable to break off his fight with the Hulk for fear the brute might escape, Samson orders them to gas him as well as the Hulk in order to capture them. Although Quartermain has reservations, unsure how the gas might effect Samson, he orders his men to fire. The gas manages to knock out both Samson and the Hulk, and they are gathered up and taken to a transport to be taken back to Gamma Base.
