Synopsis
Bruce continues to study the Hulk to try and figure out a way to bring him down. Doc Samson accidentally destroys the Hulk Robot the Hulkbusters are using for training so they attack him instead. One of the Busters is killed in the conflict and, rather than take responsibility, Samson warns them to stay out of his way. Betty agrees to marry Bruce.
