Synopsis for "Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk (Part I)"
Wolverine lies in the snowy mountains of the Himalayas, bleeding out due to the fact that he's completely missing the entire bottom half of his body. He thinks back to when this occurred, only three minutes ago. He remembers battling the Hulk, who ripped him in half and thew his legs up on top of one of the mountains, and left. As Wolverine climbs up the mountain using his claws, he remembers how this all started.
- Nick Fury summoned Wolverine for a special secret meeting at the S.H.I.E.L.D. office in Harlem. After a failed attempt to secretly monitor the meeting, Fury introduced Wolverine to Betty Ross and Jennifer Walters. He told Wolverine that the Incredible Hulk is still alive, and that he wants him to track the monster down and kill him. Logan was under the impression that the Hulk had been executed following his rampage in New York, but he learned that the monster was still alive. Fury gave Logan a vial containing one of the Hulk's stool samples. From there, Wolverine could effectively track him anywhere on the planet.
Wolverine followed the Hulk's trail, which led him to a monastery in the mountains of Tibet. He goes inside, and finds the Hulk, who is sitting on a throne with a harem of women around him. Wolverine greets Hulk, and pops his claws out.
