Joe Orlando originally drew this story but refused to make changes demanded by Stan Lee so Steve Ditko came in and did extensive changes to the original art. Info from Mark Evanier via Fred Hembeck.

Synopsis:
The Hulk takes on the indestructable Banner created robot and, in one of the more dubious plot devices in comics, succeeds in kicking him down a bottomless hole when he realizes that he cannot beat the machine; Glenn Talbot arrives on gamma base sent by the Pentagon to keep an eye on the suspicious activity of Bruce Banner; Glenn decides that keeping an eye on Betty seems like a good idea as well; The Hulk is felled while saving Gamma Base from a missile and Ross captures him in a special restraint built by Bruce Banner based on a design by Tony Stark.

Indexer Notes

In the "What's My Name" department, Glen, or was that Glenn Talbot makes his debut in this issue and his name is spelled both ways within back to back story panels; It takes a good ten issues before the name settles down to only using one "N" as his name is spelled both ways interchangeably until then; Over time, the second "N" was added again and has become the standard spelling.
