Synopsis for "Annihihulk!"

Annihilus has stolen gamma radiation from the Hulk's body to increase his size and strength. With his newfound powers, Annihilus attacks the Hulk. The Hulk tries to fight back but as he begins to gain the upper hand, Annihilus uses his newfound powers to strike fear into the Hulk. Not far away, Pip the Troll wakes up from being knocked out after the Hulk broke free. Dusting himself off he wonders where the Hulk went. Going to a massive hole in the wall he sees the gamma-spawned monster locked in battle with Annihilus. Teleporting outside, Pip realizes why Annihilus sought out the Hulk, to increase his size and power. Seeing that the Hulk is outnumbered by Annihilus and his Annihilation Wave forces, Pip fears that if he doesn't come up with some way to help, and fast, he will have to answer to the Avengers.

With the Hulk on the run, Pip figures it is only a matter of time before the Hulk acts like a cornered animal and fights back. Sure enough, when the Hulk realizes that there is nowhere to hide he turns his aggression back at Annihilus. He strikes Annihilus with a blow strong enough to crack his armor. This angers Annihilus, who unleashes a blast from his Cosmic Control Rod. Although the Hulk withstands the first few volleys, Pip can see that the Hulk won't be able to last long. In order to give the Hulk the edge he needs, Pip teleports onto Annihilus' back and plants some bombs. Although the blast staggers the ruler of the Negative Zone, it only staggers Annihilus momentarily.

However, this gives Pip enough time to teleport the Hulk back to Earth. Before the Hulk can give Pip a much deserved kick, the Troll teleports away. The Hulk then storms off into the desert until he calms down enough to revert back into Bruce Banner. Exhausted after his ordeal, Banner returns to his keepers at S.H.I.E.L.D. Maria Hill demands to know where Banner has been. He gives her the abridged version of his troubles and collapses in his bed out of sheer exhaustion. Meanwhile, Pip has returned to Starlin's Bar to discover that Heater Delight ditched him for Quasar, much to his dismay. Meanwhile, Thanos has been monitoring the entire battle and begins plotting anew.
