    Part 1 "Banished To Outer Space"

    The General 'Thunderbolt' Ross' troops capture Rick Jones and tell him that the Hulk is the only one who can survive the tremendous G-Forces of "America's newest, most important missile. They convince Rick to lead the Hulk to the capsule so it can be tested. Little does Rick know, however, that the Army intends to send the Hulk on a one-way trip into the vast infinity of space!
