Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Fear Itself: Hulk vs. Dracula #3 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

Raizo Kodo lands on the battlefield, picks up his follower Inka and tells the rest of the Forgiven to stall the rampaging Hulk….

Dracula plans to lure Hulk, transformed into Nul, Breaker of Worlds, to a trap at the castle of San Sebastian, giving his troops a pep talk for the for the battle, also commanding his son Janus Tepes to join him on the field….

The Forgiven trap Hulk between two colliding trains; Hulk just gets angrier and bashes them with his giant hammer. Hulk also smashes through a vampire battalion to stall Hulk till they can reach St. Sebastian Castle. When their big green foe arrives in the courtyard, they fire an Adamantium net, held down by massive gravity generators to hold him; Hulk breaks free in seconds and brings down the castle. As he is about to smash Dracula into he ground, Raizo Kodo arrives, bringing Red She Hulk; she returns to her Betty form and appeals to Hulk to stop fighting—for her. Hulk tears the massive hammer apart, losing the added powers and transforming back into Bruce Banner. Dracula prepares to kill him but Bruce hulks out quickly to stop him. Learning that Betty isn’t really here, it was the Forgiven’s Inka using mesmerism to trick him, Hulk is angered at the deception but in view of the fact that the trick likely saved millions from death at the hands of Nul, Breaker of Worlds, he just leaps away into the distance. Dracula then banishes Kodo and the Forgiven again on pain of death….
