Synopsis

Dragging his dead buddy to their old underground complex, Rick uses the gamma machine (last seen in Incredible Hulk #6) on Bruce, thus turning him into the Hulk and saving his life; The Hulk once again has the intellect of Banner but he has to continue to use the ray machine every 48 hours to keep himself from turning into his alter ego as he still has a bullet lodged in his head; Talbot makes a bid for Betty now that his arch rival has been killed in disgrace; The Leader sends a giant Humanoid to attack gamma base and the Hulk gets involved in the fight.

Notes

This is the 1st issue where the Hulk claims that "The madder I get the stronger I get."
