Item Biography

"The Sovereign and the Savages"

Namor is prisoner of Lord Plunder at his stronghold Skull Island in the Savage Land. The Plunderer realizes that if he can convince Namor of an alliance that he will be unstoppable. While he works his persuasion, the Swamp Men attack Plunder's base, inadvertently freeing Namor, whose righteous rage destroys Plunder's base, while the fleeing Plunderer goes to vent his revenge on Atlantis.

"The Legions of: Living Lightning"

While leaping across the countryside, the Hulk collides with a low-flying jet. The surviving pilot is aided by the Hulk, and pleads that the Hulk take him to his base, the stronghold of the Lord of Lightning. Meanwhile, everyone is searching for the Hulk. Rick Jones and the Teen Brigade have failed, and General Ross tells Talbot to call off the search. Talbot won't let it die, however, due to his jealousy over Betty Ross' love for Bruce Banner. The Lord of Lightning sees an opportunity for a powerful ally, and convinces the Hulk of their friendship, just as Glenn Talbot is caught spying outside of their base. Talbot heatedly accuses the Hulk of treason, and the Lord of Lightning goads the Hulk into attacking Ross' base.


For the life of me, I can't figure out how the Hulk got from the planet Wundagor II, where he was stranded at the close of last issue to the countryside of Earth right near General Ross' army base.
