After a six-hour duel with Wolverine, Hulk is captured by Canadian commandos; however, Hulk escapes and meets Crackajack Jackson.

Elsewhere, Hammer and Anvil, having escaped from prison, encounter an alien who turns the chains worn by Hammer and Anvil into a weapon. With their chains altered, Hammer and Anvil return to prison to exact revenge. With the aid of the Hulk, Crackajack finally arrives at the prison to meet his son, Hammer... with dire consequences.
