Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Tales to Astonish #83 Synopsis by Julio Molina-Muscara
Hulk creates a cave to protect Betty Ross from the rain and builds a fire to keep her warm. He then takes off to find food, but is seen by soldiers who attack him.

Hulk grabs both Thunderbolt Ross and Rick Jones and brings them to the cave where he left Betty. She tells her father how the Hulk saved her life from the Boomerang. Ross seems to pity the monster. Hulk, confused, leaps away. 

Meanwhile, the Boomerang tries to steal the Orion missile. Glenn Talbot is hurt during the attack, and the Boomerang fails in his quest.

Finally, the 9th member of the Secret Empire rebels against his partners, and takes control over the evil organization.
