Defenders, The #3 Synopsis by Jay Sprout
After defeating Eternity (via the combined mystical strength of his sister, Umar, and the Amulet of Agamotto), Dormammu immerses himself in Eternity's essence, absorbs his power, and detonates his heart, triggering another creation event re-birthing all beings and things in his image.

Meanwhile, back at the citadel, Umar releases Hulk from the crystalline spell and forces him to have sex with her until he is rendered unconscious and exhausted. In this relaxed state, he transforms back into Bruce Banner and is so relaxed he can't do anything to become the Hulk again which infuriates Umar who then tortures him until he can comply.

Doctor Strange tricks the torturers into giving Namor water and they escape. Strange teleports them back to Earth but it is a new Earth - Dormammu's Earth - that has replaced the one they left. They disguise themselves but it is too late - Dormammu knows they've arrived and his newest slave is revealed, this reality's version of Dr. Strange, who calls Dormammu "Master."

Back at the beach, the Silver Surfer senses something is amiss with the cosmos but is distracted from thinking too hard about it by his surfer buddies.
