Incredible Hulk #254 Synopsis by Julio Molina-Muscara
Hulk seeks the answer to his loneliness in the stars. He makes an awesome leap that takes him to orbit! Lack of air knocks him out and gravity pulls him back to Earth, falling like a burning meteorite. Waking up as Bruce Banner, he witnesses a rocket launch. He rushes towards the control room and discovers through the monitors that the crew is being bombarded by cosmic rays. After a brilliant reprogramming of the rocket's navigation, the ship changes its trajectory returning to Earth. But it's too late: the crew has changed by the cosmic rays. In result, they are now super beings who call themselves the U-Foes: Vector, Vapor, X-Ray and Ironclad. Blaming Bruce for receiving less cosmic rays than intended (they wanted to be mightier than the Fantastic Four), they go against him. Bruce turns into the Hulk and levels the fight. But the villains are too powerful even for Jade Jaws! Lacking practice, the evil team works inefficiently preventing a possible victory. Suddenly, the group members start suffering from cosmic poisoning and gets dispersed. Hulk walks away.
