Synopsis for "And Only One Shall Smash!"

The Hulk attacks Bruce Banner, who is protected by his forcefield. Even though the Hulk goes at Banner with his full strength, the mad scientist is armed to the teeth with his an arsenal of anti-Hulk weapons.

Weeks Ago Banner has been physically separated from Hulk, an exasperated Doctor Doom asks if he's satisfied. Hulk asks back if it's how long until he trusts him. Doom says there was a price to the procedure, to which Hulk guesses must be Banner and asks his intentions for him. Doom says he won't kill him and advises Hulk mind his own business. Hulk then leaps away.


Amanda von Doom finds Banner's gamma bomb. Suddenly, they are confronted by tribesmen who have been experimented on by Bruce Banner. Much to the surprise of Amanda and Gor, these men transform into Hulks.

Out in the jungle, Hulk declares he's the genius when it comes to fighting. However, Banner reveals hidden arsenals of weapons inside trees. He tries every weapon but they don't even slow Hulk down.

Long Ago

A trio of men comments over a baby's mother dying in childbirth and ask how the baby can survive the worst Latverian prison her mother was in. This infant would grow up to be Amanda von Doom.


Mister Gor proceeds to knock out all the Bannermen. Amanda then sets the gamma bomb to blow and she and Mister Gor start running. They run past Banner and Hulk, warning the latter about the bomb. Angry that they set it off before he was ready, Banner runs off.


Doctor Doom orders his robots to wake Banner up when the Hulk suddenly comes smashing in. He tells them Doom that he is taking Banner away. Furious that he would go back on their deal, the Doctor decides to kill the Hulk instead. However, the Hulk proves too powerful and easily strongarms Doom. He then grabs Banner and leaps away. Watching as the two men leave, Doctor Doom remarks how the Hulk is still just as dumb as ever.

Getting to safety, the Hulk drops Banner off who is confused by the whole ordeal and demands to know how the Hulk succeeded in separating them from each other. The Hulk doesn't provide any answers and says goodbye to Banner and leaps away without him.


Banner can't find the bomb. He is then struck in the back of the head by Hulk. He assumes that Hulk came back to save him and reminds that deep down, they'll always be brothers. Hulk corrects, revealing that he only came to watch him die. Banner changes his attitude and futilely attacks. He then spots the bomb but Hulk stops him from reaching it. Banner becomes scared as Hulk reminds him that he built that bomb. Shocked, Banner asks that Hulk being a message to Betty as the bomb goes off.
