Incredible Hulk #216 Synopsis by Julio Molina-Muscara
The Bi-Beast unleashes powerful lasers on the Hulk. Despise his awesome endurance, the attack seems to have effect on Jade Jaws! Watching via monitors, Thunderbolt Ross orders to rescue the Hulk and Gaffer opens a secret floor gate. Green Skin plummets through a tunnel 'til he reaches the chamber where Ross, Gaffer and Clay Quartermain are located. At the sight of the general, Hulk lifts him and prepares to smash him to the floor. But Gaffer dissuades him by telling the Hulk that Ross just wants the Hulk's help. All four reach the main computer's room and Hulk breaks the primary circuits seconds before the Bi-Beast could launch the atomic missiles! The SHIELD heli-carrier's emergency power systems hold the ship on the air but they won't last long! Gaffer starts working on reactivating the primary systems when the Bi-Beast shows up! Hulk goes for the large alien and both end up at the ship's roof. The fight is pretty tied and a sudden ship's turn makes both combatants loose feet and fall towards the Earth. Meanwhile, the John Doe man, unnoticed, enters a special lab in Gamma base while Doc Samson is thinking about his state.
