Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Incredible Hulk #215 Synopsis by Julio Molina-Muscara
After his ordeal with the Jack of Hearts (last iss), Hulk comes out of the water, wet and mad, as hitmen fire at him. They end up in the middle of the river with their car included. As Hulk walks New York City tired of being hunted and hated, he finds Jim Wilson who provides a new change of clothes as the green goliath turns into Bruce Banner. Both walk to Banner's apartment to find April Sommers and Kropotkin arguing in the sidewalk. As Banner apologizes to her for his recent behavior (he asked her to leave his unit), a beam from the sky surrounds him and pulls him up!

Meanwhile, on SHIELD's Heli-Carrier, Thunderbolt Ross, Clay Quartermain and Gaffer discover who their intruder was: The Bi-Beast. He (actually, "they", skull-brothers Warrior and ??) kidnapped the flying vehicle to make it his new home. They explain how after their island-in-the-sky was destroyed following a confrontation with the Hulk, the Harpy and MODOK (in Hulk #169). Their android twin brother perished in the bast, and they fell to the ocean on their bio-capsule, which was later picked up by SHIELD (as told in Hulk #212). With their world destroyed, the Bi-Beast seeks revenge by destroying our world launching atomic missiles from the flying vessel.

When all SHIELD efforts to subdue the Bi-Beast fail, Thunderbolt Ross decides to bring his worst enemy as an aid, the incredible Hulk! This is when Banner is engulfed in a Vortex beam and pulled to the Heli-Carrier. Of course, the trip stress makes him turn into the Hulk. His first reaction is to leave but, when he finds out he's miles above ground, he turns against his captors. Thunderbolt Ross tricks the Hulk into following him to end up near the Bi-Beast. When the intruder sees the Hulk, he attacks him with powerful laser beams.
