Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Incredible Hulk #38 Synopsis by Julio Molina-Muscara
A man and a woman approach Sandra Verdugo and Jink Slater offering their help. Sandra shots both of them to wear their clothes and steal their car, reaching a cafe. When Bruce Banner enters the diner, Sandra looses her clothes a bit to look sexy and approaches Banner who almost dribbles when he sees her. Sandra pours two capsules of a potent tranquilizing in Banner's drink. Suddenly, a large muscular bearded man approaches the table before Banner can swallow his drink and asks Sandra to leave. Bruce recongnizes him: it is Doc Samson.

Samson informs Banner about Sandra and Jink. At that moment, two police men enter the cafe; they are the couple that Sandra had shot! Samson recognizes them, and asks Bruce to turn into the Hulk or they may not leave the cafe alive. Bruce is not worried about those men cuz he believes they don't carry an atomic bomb in their backpack. Samson tells Bruce that they have something ten times worse and hits Bruce twice.

Tired of following Verdugo's plan, Slater shoots Verdugo on the forehead and aims at Doc Samson. The goones dressed as police men aim at Slater and ask him to stay cool. Bruce turns into the Hulk, and hits Doc Samson who goes through the roof and lands halph a mile away. Slater shoots at the Hulk but Hulk defeats him and the other goones easily.

Doc Samson stands up, removes his fake beard and mustache, and reaches the cafe to pick Banner's laptop, but he is knocked out by Sandra Verdugo, alive again and bleeding from the bullet whole in her forehead. Now Sandra's got Banner laptop.
