Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Incredible Hulk #124 Synopsis by Julio Molina-Muscara
The Leader reads on a newspaper that Bruce Banner is marrying Betty Ross. Banner has partially been cured of becoming the Hulk by controlling his transformations and the Hulk's form. To spoil Banner's happiness, the Leader plans to turn Banner into a savage Hulk on his wedding, make him kill Betty, and then kill the Hulk.

The Leader wants to use the Rhino for his plans, but he is still hospitalized after his encounter with the Hulk (Incredible Hulk #104). So the Leader sends a robot to bring the unconciouss Rhino to his lab, and heals him using gamma devices. Awaken, the Rhino puts on his suit, restored by the Leader.

The day of Betty and Bruce's wedding has arrived. It will take place in Betty's childhood home. Unknown to others, the supervillains are watching from nearby. Right before the end of the ceremony, the Leader shoots Banner with a gamma weapon, causing him to turn into the Hulk!

Unfortunately, the monster starts tearing the place apart! Everyone escapes unharmed except for Thunderbolt Ross who suffers an accident on the way out.

Hulk and Rhino clash in a fight that seems evenly matched. The Leader tries shooting the Hulk but misses, hitting the Rhino instead. Ignoring the Leader's true intentions, Rhino turns on his former partner who flies away on a ship module. The Rhino manages to grab onto the module which goes high up in the sky, and explodes!

With nobody on sight to fight, the Hulk takes off, leaving Betty to cry. Her wedding ruined, his father injured, his family house destroyed... Glenn Talbot brings his shoulder to her.

Also in this story (in videos): Sandman, Sub-Mariner, Mandarin, Maximus, Space Parasite.
