Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Hulkverines #3 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

Sonia and her mother drive Clay Cortez and the kids, along with Wolverine and Bruce Banner, back to shore. The men make plans while Clay assures the kids Logan and Hulk are heroes while he is motivated by love for his family. On shore they are attacked by one of Dr. Alba’s humanoids which seizes Logan and Banner; as Clay takes on his Weapon H/Hulkverine form to fight it, the monster teleports away. Clay wants to take his family to safety but the kids shame him into rescuing the other two heroes….

At Shadow Base, the Leader and Dr. Aliana Alba enjoy working together as they have Logan and Bruce Banner captive, using nanobots to sever their spinal cords to keep them helpless. They throw the switch which transforms Hulk and Logan into Hulkverines, motivated by blind fury and, once their spines are reconnected, out of control. They are teleported to a Shadow Base nuclear reactor and dropped from the sky; the automatic defenses open fire and the Hulkverines destroy everything and then spot each other and begin fighting….

A call goes out to the Avengers and Captain America and Black Widow arrive, lamenting the fact that they couldn’t get in touch with Thor, Captain Marvel, or Dr. Strange. As they begin to make plans, Weapon H shows up and tells them he will take care of it. H leaps into the middle and a three-way fight commences, Leader and Alba watching from a safe distance. Then H runs toward the mad scientists, firing a claw that wrecks Leader’s teleportation device. Hulk and Logan leap to the attack and Dr. Alba simply drains off their nanobots, returning them to normal. She then sprays the bots into Weapon H’s face, stripping away the higher functions, including memories of his family. But Clay has learned to control the nanobots and turns on Leader and Alba…but by this time Leader has repaired his teleporter and he blinks them away. The heroes return to where Cap and Natasha are waiting. Clay greets his family and assures him he will always be there for them. Cap request that Alpha Flight sent in a team to clean up the reactor but they won’t need a containment team….

Bruce and Logan go for a beer; Leader and Alba watch from a distance and realize they are in love and kiss….
