Synopsis
The Leader augments the Rhino's powers and sends him to bust up the Hulk's wedding day. Bruce and Betty almost get married but during the ceremony in the Ross living room, the Leader zaps Banner with a ray that returns him to mindless Hulk status and he and the Rhino wreck the Ross family home during their battle. The Leader escapes with the Rhino in tow and the Hulk leaps away, totally forgetting about Banner's nuptials.
