Banner once again becomes the Hulk as the battle with the Missing Link continues. Fury and SHIELD move in to help in capturing them. During the fight, a Russian ship captures them. The Russians do tests on the Missing Link but the Hulk escapes his captivity and causes mayhem. The Hulk makes it back to terra firma just as the Missing Link finally overloads on radiation and explodes. Yuri and his men escape their doomed ship in a smaller saucer and even though the Hulk has just saved a small Russian boy from a burning house, Brevlov is pressured by his men to finish off the monster.
