Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Hulk #5 Synopsis by Julio Molina-Muscara
After unleashing his superb might over Rulk , an overconfident Thor is soundly defeated by the crimson skin monster. Key to this unexpected turn of events was Rulk's deduction to lift the enchanted hammer Mjolnir:

1) while carrying Thor along, and
2) at zero gravity.

Using Mjolnir, Rulk knocked the Thunder God and left him on the Moon's surface (!).

Rulk's return to Earth was so violent that it triggered the San Andres fault line, causing the city of San Francisco to start falling into the Pacific ocean. After being rescued by A-Bomb from under the Golder Gate bridge, the Hulk is greeting by Iron Man and a group of super heroes (She-Hulk, Ares, Namor, the Human Torch, and the Thing) who want to aid him battle Rulk.

Notes: Mr. Fantastic's device reveals that Bruce Banner says "Samson" during his private conversation with Thunderbolt Ross. The recording transmission carried a very sophisticated trojan horse-like virus that caused a power outage.
