Synopsis for "Where Monsters Dwell"
From his cell at Gamma Base, Bruce Banner takes notes regarding the appearance of the new Red Hulk. The earliest sighting of the creature was in the wilderness of British Columbia, Canada. His arrival in the area was detected as high up as in Alaska. The Red Hulk kills a deer and starts a fire. His cooking meat attracts the attention of a starving Wendigo.
When the creature attacks the Red Hulk, he causes a bunch of damage to the Hulk. However, this only causes the Hulk to start increasing his strength, generating heat that Banner is able to visibly see from infared scans of the area during the battle. Furious at being attacked, the Red Hulk shoots the Windego in the stomach then takes his burning hot machete and chops the beast's head off.
With the battle over, the Red Hulk moved on, unaware that this Windego was part of a pack of the creatures. The hungry monsters swoop in and consume the corpse of their pack member and cry out in vengeance. Banner finishes his report and sends it to General Ross. Ross reads Banner's stern warning about the creatures possibly coming to get revenge.

Synopsis for "Wait Until Dark"
This place takes place during the events of Hulk Vol 2 #2...
Aboard the SHIELD helicarrier, She-Hulk is getting bored listening to Iron Man and Maria Hill discuss the Red Hulk. That's when the subject of their discussion comes ripping through the wall and pulls She-Hulk away. As the attacker drags her down a darkened hallway, she thinks that this new Hulk is her cousin Bruce Banner. When she tries to call him by name, the Red Hulk informs her that he is not Banner.
Since this not her cousin, She-Hulk lays into her attacker at full strength. However, it doesn't even phase the Red Hulk, who belts her aside. He then pins She-Hulk up against the wall and tells her that he could kill her at any time. He repeats this threat as She-Hulk passes out from lack of air. When she regains consciousness Maria Hill is standing over her. She relates her encounter with the Red Hulk and is determined to track him down and get revenge. When Maria warns her against going after the Red Hulk alone, Jennifer assures her that she won't be.

- Thaddeus Ross (Recap)
Races and Species:
Synopsis for "The Death and Life of the Abomination"
From his cell at Gamma Base, Bruce Banner back-tracks through his long history with the Abomination. He starts by recounting how the new Red Hulk had recently tacked Emil Blonsky down in Russia and shot him to death. He remembers one of his last battles with the Aboination, which ended with Blonsky being shackled in Gamma Base and forced to watch footage of him saying goodbye to his wife Nadia Blonsky over and over. The time before that was when the Abomination used his own blood to kill his wife, Betty Banner, with radiation poisoning and how the Abomination cowardly hid after the fact while also stalking his ex-wife.
He thinks back further, of the time that the Abomination kidnapped his wife and took her into the sewers of New York City. The Hulk, shrunken in size managed to convince the mentally unhinged Abomination to let his ex-wife go. Further, still he remembers the time that the Hulk doused the Abomination with toxic waste, horribly scarring his foe. He thinks about some of his earliest battles with the Abomination, such as when the Hulk briefly allied himself with Blonsky, when the Abomination worked with the Rhino, and when the two fought in space.
Lastly, he thinks about the day that Emil Blonsky was first transformed into the Abomination. A spy planted at Gamma Base, Blonsky was mutated by the Gamma Charger that Banner set up to try and cure himself of being the Hulk. Thinking about how his constant struggles with the Abomination were his fault and he is partially responsible for Betty's death, Banner begins to cry.
