A Refuge Divided!

Synopsis

Black Bolt banishes six rebel Inhumans to the un-place for treason. Lockjaw takes them there but on his way back to the Great Refuge, he tangles with the Hulk whom he also takes to the un-place. Under the guidance of Maximus, the Hulk joins the evil Inhumans and they make their way back to remove Black Bolt from his throne. Maximus uses the Hulk to gain access to an ancient power source but even this is not enough to dethrone the silent monarch of the Inhumans. Realizing that the Hulk is an ally, Black Bolt offers to let the Hulk live in peace with the Inhumans but Hulk declines the offer.

Notes

Frank Giacoia inks on pages 21-26, 29-30, 36-37, 41-42, 44, 48. Other possible inkers include Bill Everett, John Tartaglione and John Verpoorten. Syd Shores likely inked the Hulk's face and/or figure throughout.
