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.
