A rescue mission extracts General Ross from his Russian captors- but will Glenn Talbot now take Ross’ place? Hulk successfully reaches New York’s shores…and must immediately help Hawkeye with the ever-shocking Zzzax!
Debut of Zzzax!
The story opens with Hulk stopping a train wreck. Bruce Banner, on the run, gets a job as a janitor at a lab in the hopes of continuing his research to find a cure for the Hulk. When some of the lab's scientists see his incredible intellect and skill, they invite him to witness the activation of their new machine. The machine is supposed to generate vast amounts of electricity including that from someone's neurons--perhaps even revealing one's memories in physical form. However, the machine creates an entire being of electrical energy. Absorbing the gamma in Hulk it becomes powerful enough to survive, and bursts out. Desperate for more energy, he begins to feed off Hulk even more.
How can Hulk survive? Perhaps he needs the help of Hawkeye.
