Synopsis
The military captures Rick and Ross convinces him that they need the Hulk to test a new experimental rocket for national security. Rick tricks the jade giant into the capsule but once it is shot into space, he realizes that Ross deceived him to get rid of his foe. Rick overrides the programming and returns the rocket to earth but not before Banner (he transformed back to his human form when the rocket came into view of the sun) is doused with further radiation. The Hulk is now unable to revert to his human form and is under Rick's control but only while Rick remains awake.

Synopsis
The Hulk takes on the indestructible Banner created robot and, in one of the more dubious plot devices in comics, succeeds in kicking him down a bottomless hole when he realizes that he cannot beat the machine. Glenn Talbot arrives on gamma base sent by the Pentagon to keep an eye on the suspicious activity of Bruce Banner. Glenn decides that keeping an eye on Betty seems like a good idea as well. The Hulk is felled while saving Gamma Base from a missile and Ross captures him in a special restraint built by Bruce Banner based on a design by Tony Stark.

Hearing that his buddy has been captured, Rick leaves Cap's side to go help his original super pal. The mysterious Leader sends the Chameleon to gamma base to find out what happened to an agent who didn't report back in (probably because he ended up falling down a hole in a robot suit last ish). Talbot and Banner begin their less than friendly rivalry. The Chameleon impersonates Banner and tries to steal a gamma grenade using Betty as a hostage but the Hulk thwarts his plans.
