Synopsis for "Hell Break"
At the start of the Chaos War, Doctor Strange is attempting to bar Abomination from leaving Hell, declaring that out of all the move evilly dead, he must remain. Suddenly, Strange is ambushed by the Chaos King, who unleashes Zom. The Chaos King demands that Zom serves him if he craves destruction. As the Chaos king leaves Hell, Abomination explains to Zom that they have to go after Marlo Chandler, who has one piece of the abstract Death within her, the only thing they need to kill all the mortals.
In the present, the Hulk retaliates against Zom and urges the other Hulks to go save Marlo. Zom, without Strange to hold him back, he unleashes his full power against the Hulk. Abomination joins in too, destroying the Hulks' stone ship. Red She-Hulk attacks him, deciding to get some well-earned payback. Though Abomination would relish killing her against, he leaves to find Marlo. Luckily, Bruce Banner can guess that since Zom doesn't have Strange's full magical capabilities, they can beat him to Marlo. He then tosses a cell phone to A-Bomb.
In Phoenix, Arizona, Marlo receives A-Bomb's call, who is wandering about, noticing the living sleeping while the long dead walk the Earth. Demons then emerge from the ground to get at her. Some cowboys try protecting her -- albeit, poorly. Luckily, Banner and Skaar cobble together a teleporter with stone tech and save her. Marlo notices A-Bomb's injuries. But when she embraces him, the latter suddenly bursts out with blood, which hit the teleporter and destroys it. Banner advises Marlo that since she has a piece of Death, she mustn't touch the near dead.
An hour later, Skaar puts together a bunker to protect Marlo. But realizing that they may be going against impossible odds, Marlo decides to use her Death powers to summon up some help, like Doc Samson, Jarella, Glenn Talbot and Hiroim. Everybody but Red She-Hulk have a tearful reunion. Samson informs Red She-Hulk that the Talbot who deceived her was, in fact, a robot. Just as Talbot apologizes for being a bad husband and Red She-Hulk turns back into Betty, Zom, and Abomination attack. Marlo and A-bomb take shelter in the bunker while the Hulks and their allies hold off their foes. But just when it seems that they're actually winning, to jinx things, Abomination summons the Hulk's mother and father, the latter having turned into a monstrous version of Devil Hulk.
