Synopsis
Trying to make his way home, Hulk leaps from iceberg to iceberg as he attempts to cross the ocean but eventually ends up in the water. He is immediately attacked by a U.S. submarine which he tears to pieces. As both Hulk and the sub sink, they are saved by Captain Omen and brought aboard his ship. Once Hulk realizes that Omen wants to use him as a servant in his bid to claim the ocean floor as his own, Hulk tries to escape. Using the pressure of the deep ocean as a trap, Omen dooms the Hulk to walk the ocean floor under his command forever. Fury makes planes to rescue Ross.
