Synopsis
The Hulk is pulled into the underground kingdom of Tyrannus who has been separated from the fountain of youth and has become a feeble old man. The Jade Giant's old foe asks for his help in retaking the fountain from his rival, the Mole Man, and he makes his argument for assistance stronger by revealing that he has captured Rick, Betty and Glenn. When Betty mentions Banner, Hulk goes wild but his destruction is put to an abrupt end as the Mole Man attacks. The Hulk fights Mole Man's powerful Octo-Sapien robot and falls into the fountain of youth which transforms him back into Banner.

The Secret Empire hires Boomerang to obtain the plans for the Orion missile and the new bad guy on the block heads for gamma base.

Banner frantically makes his way through a pitched battle between the forces of the Mole Man and Tyrannus, trying to find a way to return to the surface and help his friends but it is only when he once again becomes the Hulk that he accidentally stumbles on the right machine that accomplishes the task.

Leaving the Hulk behind, the evil duo lead an army of trolls against Asgard and the Hulk arrives on the scene just in time to lend a hand in the victory of Odin's forces. Even though he has proven himself an ally, the Hulk still manages to tick the All-Father off so an enraged Odin sends him back to Earth.
