Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Incredible Hulk #151 Synopsis by Joakim Wemmergard
Bruce Banner wakes up alone in the middle of the desert. He feels bad to have hurt Betty Ross when he told her about his love for Jarella. Glenn Talbot is driving her away. Banner turns into the Hulk and follows them, only to see the pair embrassed, kissing. Hulk turns around and leaves.

Meanwhile in Washington DC, the Senate is having a hearing about General Thunderbolt Ross and his Project Greenskin base. With the help of Senator Clegstead, Ross convinces the Senate that capturing the Hulk is of most importance. But Clegstead has other motives for helping Ross. He is dying of cancer and with the help of a scientist from the army base, he injects some of the Hulk's blood into his system.

Banner reads in a newspaper that Hank Pym, the Ant-Man, will be in DC, and theorizes he could help him. But when he reaches the auditorium in DC, Pym isn't there; frustration causes the change into the Hulk. Police and the Army try containing the Hulk, but that's the lease of the monster's problems. Clegstead's cancer reacts strangely to the Hulk's blood and while driving his car, he suffers a metamorphosis into some kind of greenish ooze.

The monster pours out of the car and attacks the Hulk who tries smashing the ooze but it burns like acid! Hulk grabs a flagpole to stab the ooze to no avail. The Clegstead ooze attacks again as lightning strikes the flagpole, burning the ooze to ashes.

The Hulk limps into the park.
